Axis Bank SELECT Credit Card

Axis Bank SELECT Credit Card is the premium credit issued by Axis Bank. Its has been hosted VISA platform. The Default rewards rate is 1% accompanied by an Excellent host of benefits. Here is a detailed review of this credit card.

The benefits and features are almost the same as old select credit however this credit card has been relaunched with a new design & benefits.

Fees

FeesAmount
Joining FeesRs.3000
Annual FeesRs.3000
Finance Charges3.40% per month
Foreign Currency Mark Up Fees3.5%
  1. Axis Bank Select Credit card is complimentary exclusively for Burgundy Customers. There are NO Joining as well as Annual fees for Burgundy Customers.
  2. However in case, you lost Burgundy status, Rs.3000+GST charges shall be imposed on you.
  3. In Normal cases, Annual Fees shall be waived off if you spend Rs.3,00,000 or more in the previous year.

Welcome Benefits

  • Amazon voucher : Rs.2000
  • First Transaction should be done within 90 days of Credit card issuance.
  • The Amazon voucher would be sent to your E-mail or SMS.

Its is evident that Axis bank have tried off to sett off Joining fees with welcome benefits. After the completion of the first transaction within 90 days, Rs.2,000 Amazon Voucher shall be send to through the SMS or Email. However you still loose Rs.1,000+ GST for Joining fees.

I , think the Axis Bank Should have given at least Rs.1,000 Zomato Voucher as compensation.
