Unboxing: Axis Magnus Credit Card

Axis Bank has launched the Magnus Credit Card specifically for people who enjoy the finer things in life. The card is a gateway to a luxury lifestyle as it offers concierge services, discounts on luxury hotels, dining, etc. Other features and benefits associated with Axis Bank Magnus Credit Cards are listed below.

The Axis Bank Magnus Credit Card comes in a gray shipment box, in a color scheme that looks similar to the previous color scheme of the box in which the American Express Platinum Charge Card was shipped.

Not sure if they process all Magnus credit cards with express delivery, however, this shipment was marked so we may have requested expedited delivery.

We were very surprised to get this card delivered in just 4 working days: from the date of application to receipt of the card.

It is super-fast and even beats the shipment speed of American Express which usually takes 5 working days unless you are in or near Delhi which will speed up the delivery by a day or two.

All important details are mentioned in a single leaflet. The featured brochure is also very simple and to the point, better than 100 glossy pages.

Plastic Magnus vs Metal Magnus: Magnus comes in metal form when they started reissuing the card on the Visa platform. However, apart from minor differences in chip design, both metal and non-metal Magnus credit cards look almost identical.

Overall the box and contents are minimal, which is good in this busy world. Hopefully, their support system will also become as easy as the card unboxing experience.
