Transfer EDGE Points to Partner Airlines/Hotels
The Travel EDGE Portal by Axis Bank allowed customers to redeem their EDGE points for a number of options. Also, the cardholders were able to transfer their EDGE Miles earned to Partner Airlines and Hotels. However, with Axis Bank’s recent move, the Axis Credit Cardholders are now also allowed to transfer their EDGE Points earned to partner Airlines and Hotels. The Axis Credit cards that are eligible for transferring the EDGE Points/Miles have been mentioned below:
|Axis Credit Cards||Reward type|
|Axis Atlas credit card||EDGE Miles|
|Axis Reserve credit card||EDGE Points||Affluent Cards|
|Axis Burgundy Private credit card||EDGE Points|
|Axis Magnus credit card||EDGE Points|
|Axis Select credit card||EDGE Points||Emerging Affluent Cards|
|Axis Privilege credit card||EDGE Points|
Partner Airlines and Hotels
The following table lists the partner Airlines and Hotels along with the conversion rates for each partner’s Points/Miles:
|Partner Airlines/Hotels||Conversion RateEDGE Points: Partner Points/Miles|
|Atlas Credit Card (Miles)||Affluent Cards||Emerging Affluent Cards|
|Air France KLM||1:2||5:4||10:1|
|IHG Hotels & Resorts||1:2||5:4||10:1|
For better understanding, let’s take an example. Let’s say you spend Rs. 1,00,000 (1 Lakh) in a calendar month with your Axis Bank Magnus Credit Card. The following EDGE Points will be earned for your spending:
- 25,000 Bonus Edge Reward Points (Milestone Benefit).
- 6,000 Edge points (as per spend reward rate).
In total, you would have 31,000 EDGE Points, which let’s assume you transfer to Club ITC Points. Now you have 24,800 Club ITC Points which you can utilize for further use.
Allowing EDGE Points to be transferred to Partner Airlines as well as Hotels is a good move by Axis bank as it will allow cardholders to utilize their Points in the most effective manner. Earlier only EDGE Miles was allowed to be transferred to partners’ rewards program but now EDGE Points can be transferred as well. What do you think about this? Drop your views in the comments below:
