Bottomline

Theoretically, Axis Bank Freecharge Plus Credit Card is highly rewarding that has 5% cashback on their application spends, but in practice this, not the case. Total cashback has been caped to Rs.500 per month, which is too low compared to other entry-level credit which has unlimited cashback options. I would not recommend Axis Bank Freecharge Plus, Credit Card, to anyone, because you can easily earn Rs. 350 to Rs.500 cashback in PayZapp also. HDFC is offering cashback on Bill Pay as well as mobile recharges of PayZap Customers.
