IndusInd Bank Legend credit card is a mid-segment offering launched in 2018. Legend credit offers 2X reward points on weekend spends. We can use these points for cashback or can also transfer them to Vistara among other options. It also offers a good BookMyShow offer to get Buy One Get One on movie tickets. Here is a review of the IndusInd Bank Legend credit card and its rewards & benefits.
Fees and Charges
LTF Offer on Legend Credit Cards
|Joining Fee||NIL – LTF Offer|
|Welcome Benefit||1 year EazyDiner Prime Membership|
|CATEGORY||REWARD POINTS PER RS 100||RETURN@75PPER RP|
|Medical, Automobiles & Telecom||1||0.75%|
|Utility Bills, Insurance, Government Services, Education, Rent & Real Estate||0.7||0.53%|
- 4000 Reward Points on spending Rs 6 Lakhs in a year
This is a nice 0.6% extra benefit on crossing Rs 6 Lakhs spend. If we spend only on weekends, the 2.5% reward rate is also better than the IndusInd Pinnacle credit card which offers 2%. This sounds good but we have an issue. Major categories like bill payments, insurance etc. get a return of just 0.53%. Excluding these categories, it is very difficult to spend Rs 6 Lakhs on this card. We have many better cashback and rewards credit cards in the market.
Each reward point is equal to 75 paise for a statement credit for IndusInd Bank Legend credit card. We can also transfer reward points to Vistara and InterMiles at 1:1 ratio.
- E-Vouchers and products on IndusMoments
- Airmiles transfer to InterMiles/Vistara
- Cash Credit: Max 25000 RP per statement
Taking a statement credit for the accumulated reward points is a better option than the other ones. The value for cash credit used to be 1 RP = Rs 1 but was devalued later by IndusInd Bank.
Movie and Dining Offers on the IndusInd Bank Legend credit card

IndusInd Bank’s credit card offerings are not among the best when it comes to rewards. We have many better options if we want cashback. So, is there a use for getting the IndusInd Legend card today? The answer may be yes depending on your requirements.
Legend is now offered Lifetime Free (LTF). For an LTF tag, we get a 1-year EazyDiner membership along with BOGO on BMS 3 times per calendar month. Add in the domestic airport lounge access and it can still be a value offering today. Getting the Legend credit card can also help you avail 10% instant discount offers on Amazon or Flipkart.
