AXIS Bank Buzz Credit Card

Axis Bank’s Buzz Credit Card mainly benefits people who shop extensively on Flipkart. So, should you get it? Here are some facts.

Although primarily a Flipkart-friendly credit card, the Axis Bank Buzz Credit Card does offer some benefits on purchases from other online stores too. It offers good cashback offers, while also crediting users with Axis eDGE reward points. You can convert your purchases to EMIs to ease payments.
