What are the chances that two leading credit card issuers use the same name for their cards? Slim to none. But here we have a brand name that both HDFC Bank and Axis Bank use – Diners Club Privilege and Axis Bank Privilege. The Axis Bank Privilege credit card is a mid-segment offering that comes with decent rewards and benefits. It also has an amazing feature that can boost the rewards on your other Axis Bank credit cards. 🙂 Here is a review of the Axis Bank Privilege credit card and everything you need to know about it.

The USP of the Privilege card is what Axis Bank calls a ‘multi-brand voucher’. The normal value of an EDGE Reward point is 20 paise when redeemed for rewards like an Amazon GV. For Privilege, we have the option to get a multi-brand voucher worth Rs 5000 for 12500 EDGE Reward points. This boosts the value of 1 EDGE Reward point to 40 paise.

Tip: Redeem Multi-Brand Voucher for other EDGE Rewards credit cards

Axis Bank maintains a single EDGE Rewards account. EDGE reward points from all eligible credit cards held by us get posted to this account. Holding Privilege doubles the reward rate for other EDGE Rewards cards like Magnus. So, earn EDGE Rewards using Magnus and redeem them for the multi-brand voucher as you hold Privilege.

  • Finance Charges: 3.6% per month / 52.86% annually

Final Thoughts

With a Rs 1500 annual fee and a 2% to 10% reward rate with the multi-brand voucher, the Privilege is a good credit card. We get the annual fee waiver at Rs 2.5 Lakhs spend which should also be easy to achieve. Get the Axis Bank Privilege card if:

  • Planned redemption is the multi-brand voucher where we get a higher return
  • You can use Grab Deals to get accelerated rewards

    As we know in miles transfer we got maximum value,
    So can I transfer the earned (for New Card 12500 EDGE Reward Points+Other Earnings) EDGE Reward Points to ACCOR?

    1. Card Maven

      Yes, we can. You can even get Magnus and take advantage of the 5:4 transfer ratio.

      1. Suraj Sharma

        I have Axis My Zone Card Currently and have offered to Upgrade to Axis Bank Privilege Credit Card.
        What is the transfer ratio in Privilege Credit Card in ACCOR transfer?

        1. If you are looking for a transfer to Accor, get Magnus. The value you will get will easily compensate the fee.

  2. When it says 5X using grab deals so is this as good as 5% cashback of Flipkart cc ? What will be the end value for edge : money

  3. Hi – Can we also buy Big Basket or Amazon pay gift voucher for redeeming welcome benefit of 12500 Edge RP (5000 rs voucher) for axis privilege?

  4. Can you please explain in depth about Multi-Brand Voucher.

    If I only wish to redeem for Myntra only from Multi-Brand Voucher list does it allow also what will be the value 20ps or 40ps.

      1. can you please confirm as per axis bank website Multi brand vouchers are Milestone Benefit so to earn 40ps for edge rewards points one need to spend 2.5lacs.

        This is not mentioned in the above review.

        1. Card Maven

          Any EDGE RP earned on the Privilege card can be redeemed for multi-brand vouchers as long as you have enough EDGE RP.

  5. You mentioned that we can combine points we get from Magnus to get higher value vouchers – so, does it mean that we can also move the points obtained from privilege and transfer them to airline miles via magnus?
