With the recent acquisition of Citi Consumer business, this new AXIS Reward Credit Card seems to be a replacement of Citi Rewards Credit Card. It gives you a reward with every swipe with a lot more to offer like instant discounts on Swiggy & Lounge benefits.
This credit card can turn out to be a fantastic representation of what rewards truly are. People might get credit cards mostly because of the reward system but many do not look for the other benefits it provides. Rewards just do not include the points you get on your every purchase, it also means what else you can get on other miscellaneous purchases you make in day-to-day life.
