Axis Bank My Zone Credit Card was my first credit card which introduced me to the world of credit cards and savings. This card has gone through many changes in features over the years. When I started, this card used to give 10X points on shopping and dining and then moved to quarterly 30K target spend based rewards and now is a completely different offering which I will discuss below.

How to redeem Axis Bank Reward points
Axis bank rewards its users with Edge Reward Points wherein the value of 1 Edge reward point is Rs 0.20 and the reward rate here is 0.4%. These can be redeemed at their portal https://edgerewards.axisbank.co.in/ to buy gift cards, travel and other vouchers etc.
My take on this
The reward rate of 0.4% was great for me to start off and it was LTF for me and learn the credit card savings game. I used this card to the max in the initial days specifically for dining etc. where it was 4% (10X) at that time. But now I only use this card for 2 purposes – 1. BOGO (1 free movie ticket) on Paytm Movies 2. Swiggy offer of 40% discount.
This card is a good entry level card for someone who is starting off with his / her first credit card. Reward rate of 0.4% is not great but good considering the complimentary offers and lounge benefit on this card. There are other promotions being run on Amazon, Flipkart, Makemytrip etc. by Axis bank and this card definitely helps to save. After your credit history & income improves, you can utilize these accumulated points to convert to miles or redeem at higher value after upgrading to higher card like I did with Axis Privilege credit card.
As I mentioned earlier, the joining and annual fee is Rs 500 but if you want to apply to Axis Bank My Zone credit card LTF, you can apply with my below referral link:
