Free Rs. 250 Gift Voucher for Barclaycard Users at Indiaplaza

Barclaycard and Indiaplaza is giving away gift voucher worth Rs. 250 for free to all the Barclay card users in India. This is an exclusive offer only for the Barclay Card users which can be redeemed only at Indiaplaza. This is a gift voucher which will be sent to your email ID that you give at the offer page given below, which you can use it while shopping at Indiaplaza.

Barclaycard which is relatively new to India which actually introduced its credit card only very recently has started coming up with some similar offers in collaboration with various online and offline merchants, which is indeed good for the users.

To avail this offer you need to purchase for a minimum of Rs. 1000 which virtually means that you are getting the gift voucher as discount voucher which is giving around 25% discount on the total purchase of at least Rs. 1000. Hence instead of saying this as a gift voucher we can say it as 25% discount voucher. If you are indeed planning for an online shopping and have a Barclaycard you can avail this offer to get that 25% discount or around.

You can buy anything from Indiaplaza using this gift voucher but you cannot buy additional vouchers or air tickets. I also guess that you need to use your Barclays Credit Card while purchasing for this offer, else it will not be valid.

You need to give your Name, email id and mobile phone number to get your gift voucher worth Rs. 250 for free.

I suppose Indiaplaza will verify your name and other details with Barclaycard to check whether you are indeed a Barclaycard user and will send you the gift voucher within two days.

You can find the details of this offer here.

This offer was shared to me by Mukesh Verma.

Buy Mobile at Futurebazaar and Get Foce Watch Free

Futurebazaar is currently giving away a branded Foce Watch which is claimed to worth Rs. 1200 when you buy any mobiles from their site. This offer is valid for any mobile you purchase from Futurebazaar and you will be getting this Foce watch for free. The mobile can be any brand and of any price to get this free watch.

Futurebazaar has been somewhat silent for quite some time in terms of coming up with some offers but has come back with this free watch offer on mobile purchases there.

Apart from this they are also offering an unconditional 15 days refund for the mobiles you buy from them and are not satisfied with it, this is apart from the existing warranty that all mobile companies like Nokia, Sony Erickson, and Motorola give. This I feel no other shopping portal gives.


There is not much info about this offer except the fact that there was a mention of freebie with you choose a product into your shopping cart. They are offering this free offer even if you choose a very cheap mobile even for Rs. 1500 which is a Nokia 1208. This makes this offer a money’s worth. Because you are getting a watch worth Rs. 1200 even for a purchase of Rs. 1500. Although it is questionable whether that Foce Watch is indeed worth it that Rs. 1200, which only you readers can share if you have indeed brought that brand before.

The watch that they claim is a branded Foce Watch. They are giving away “Foce FC1220021G Steel Mens Watch” for all the mobiles you buy from them.

Get 100% Cash Back at Cafegadgets.in

Cafegadgets to celebrate their first anniversary is currently offering 100% cash back on purchases made from their site which you can redeem at their site itself for the next purchase for electronics and gadgets. This is an one time redeemable cash back offer, which you should have used it before June 15, 2008 and not after that.

Cafe Gadgets, is an exclusive shopping portal dedicated only for electronics and gadgets products and sells only electronic stuffs like mobile phones, digital cameras, laptops, PDAs, ipods, etc. They are a relatively new site and have been around for one year and indeed they have got their own mark in selling electronics online within this short period of time and still growing.


To actually mark their First Anniversary they have come up currently with this 100% cash back offer. You will get this cash back as a gift voucher which will be e-mailed to you once you make a purchase there. And you can redeem this gift voucher only at their site and should be redeemed it before June 15. It will be a unique code which you will need to enter at the time of redemption at the place where it was required.

The main thing to notice here is that you can redeem this 100% cash back voucher only if your purchase value is five times the original value. For example if you buy for Rs. 100 at Cafegadgets and you will be getting the gift voucher for Rs. 100 which you can redeem it as a discount voucher for the next purchase value of Rs. 500 at Cafegadgets which literally means that you will need to pay Rs. 400 instead of Rs. 500 with that discount of Rs. 100. This literally means that you will be getting only 20% cash back in reality and not 100% cash back according to this calculation. This makes this offer a little insignificant.

To be frank this is not as grand offer to give it to your customer for your first anniversary. I hope they should have made that 100% cash back offer a true 100% cash back offer or at least should be giving at least 50% cash back rather than giving 20% cash back. But if you are a true electronics freak and will buy anything and everything in electronics frequently you can actually utilize this offer to make your purchase on the products listed at Cafegadgets, at least you will get 20% discount on your next purchase to be sure!

This offer was shared to me by Shivam Goyal. This is valid only till June 15, 2008. You can find more about this offer here.

Cheapest Online Trading Account with Sharekhan

If you have not yet opened up an online trading or demat account for trading in the stock markets, I feel this is the right time to do with Sharekhan. As they are currently offering to open your trading account for Rs. 49 and Rs. 99 which would normally cost you Rs. 750 and Rs. 1000 respectively.

Sharekhan, as you know, is one of the leading online share trading portal in India which has been around for quite some time and have a huge base. To boost up their clientele and to tackle the tough competition from Reliance Money and other share trading portals, they are currently offering to open up your online trading account for very cheap which you can use to transact for online trading in Indian Stock Market.

They currently are offering two types of online trading accounts. One is Classic/FastTrade account which is for the beginners or those who do less transactions on the stocks. There is also another one, TradeTiger, which is for the day traders and other advanced users. If you are new to stock market and want to start newly and to try it out, it is advised to try the Classic account to open. The Classic Account is only Rs. 49 to open while the TradeTiger account is Rs. 99 to open.

This offer is available only if you apply and pay the above mentioned amount through online. You cannot avail it elsewhere or offline.

It is always advisable to invest at least some amount of your savings in stock market even though there was a huge crash in it, although it would bounce back soon. It is advised to invest in stocks considering the way the inflation is rising right now and hence saving through the regular modes like bank deposits and savings bonds will not work out at all with the rate in which the inflation is rising. Even if you are planning for opening an online trading account, you can do it right now, as the charge is cheaper than ever and can start transacting later whenever you wish but remember that you need to give the cheque for Rs. 5000 for buying shares which you can do it later though.

After applying online by paying the required amount you need to keep your Pan Card, Address proof, photographs, cancelled cheque and a cheque for Rs. 5000 as a minimum amount to invest in stock market, so that the Sharekhan representative will come and collect it from you to officially open your online trading account.

This is done to tackle the recent move by Reliance Money to offer free trading account but charging an annual charge of Rs. 500 for transactions, but I personally feel that Reliance Money would be ideal for those doing the trading full time or regularly and not for the beginners or those who transact rarely to buy or sell stocks. Hence you can go for Sharekhan account in which they also offer free advice for the beginners on how to start with stocks and how to go about it.

This offer is valid only till June 30, 2008. You can find more about this offer and open an online account with Sharekhan, here. To know more about online trading and how to start or have any general queries you can contact Sharekhan at their toll free customer service number at 1800-22-7500 or can even email them at invest@sharekhan.com. This offer was shared by Ashish.

Win Free Giftmate Gift Vouchers with Zapak Cash League

Zapak has again come up with similar offer to their of Zapak ATM Contest. This time they are giving away free Giftmate Gift Vouchers for just playing their games, both single player and multiplayer games. You can also win the gift vouchers by purchasing their offline games too. This contest is brought along with Reliance Mobile which you might be knowing is part of Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group and so is the Zapak. Zapak had the ATM Contest in which they were giving away cash prizes every day just for playing games but here they are giving away plain gift vouchers as well as Giftmate gift vouchers for free instead of cash. This Giftmate vouchers can then be used at any online and offline merchants which accept Giftmate and hence getting the value for the money you earned at Zapak. This contest is named as Zapak Cash League similar to with IPL fever going on right now.

To get started with this contest, you should have a valid Zapak gaming portal membership which actually is free to register which you can do at their site. After registration, you need to login to Zapak using your Zapak ID and start playing games, both single player or double player. This is indeed a great way to earn some bucks just for playing games, which otherwise is a favorite pastime for many. Zapak is giving away cash to have fun, which makes this offer rather unique and worth trying.

In this offer, if you play a single player game you will be earning 2 points for every game you play and you will be earning 5 points for every multiplayer game you play. You can also earn 20 points if you buy any of their offline games which is available for Rs. 99, which is an offline flash based game. Remember that to win points all you need to do is to play the games, it is not necessary that you need to win each games, just playing is enough. There are also some bonus points available in which you need to play their special Reliance Mobile branded games.

Some of the prizes you will win are, for 20 you will win Rs. 100 gift voucher from either Ticketvala, Bigflicks, or Dominos, which I feel is not worth it to claim. Instead you can try any of these points to claim your gift for which you will be getting the Giftmate vouchers of various denominations. For 35 points you will get Giftmate Gift Voucher worth Rs. 150 and for 45 points Rs. 200 Giftmate voucher and for earning 65 points you will get a voucher worth Rs. 250 from Giftmate.

You will not be able to carry forward the points from one day to another and hence all the points have to be earned and redeemed on the same day. You also should not play the same game again to earn points, you need to play different unique games each time to qualify for the points.

You will get a confirmation from Zapak if you had indeed won the prize through an email. You can also login to Zapak and check for yourself about the points you have earned and how much you can redeem for which gift voucher, etc. Unlike last time, where Zapak had lots of issues when it comes to giving the cash in the ATM contest, I hope they have rectified all such against customer practices and get it smoothly at least for this contest.

This contest is open from May 15, 2008 to June 22, 2008. You can find more about this contest and how to win the gift vouchers here.

Giftmate, as many of you might be knowing that, is famous for its awesome offers in the near past.

Get Worldspace Radio at 65% Discount with SBI Card

SBI Card along with the Worldspace Satellite Radio in India has introduced an offer which is worth mentioning here. You can actually buy the Worldspace Radio at Rs. 1699 as against the original price of Rs. 4990 and you save Rs. 3291 from this offer.

SBI Card has never surprised us with some offers and deals which is too good to resist at least on paper. This time it is this offer from World Space Satellite Radio.

This radio receiver that you are going to get is the model Celeste Mark II which has a 70 watts built-in speakers with bass expander and even has its own AM/FM radio receiver.

World Space Satellite Radio through which you can listen to world class music and news 24 hours a day. The specialty of this radio is that there are some theme based and language and music based stations available here. For example in music there will be stations specially for classical music, rock, jazz, hip hop, Bollywood film music, and even regional.

In this offer if you buy the special World Space Satellite Radio Receiver through SBI Card, you will be supposedly getting a discount of 65% from the original price of Rs. 4990 and you can buy it at Rs. 1699 and you save Rs. 3291.

Apart from this you need to pay a monthly subscription charges to listen to it every month. There is an option of Rs. 1000 for six months, which I guess is the cheapest that they are offering right now in terms of monthly subscription. Which I feel is the only drawback with this Worldspace Radio! I could never ever imagine listening to radio by paying monthly charges just like Cable or Satellite TV! All these years we have been listening to our regular radio for free, but for this Satellite Radio we need to pay monthly charges, which is a price we need to shell out for good quality music or for listening to the music of our choice any time of the day, I guess.

Anyway, if you want to order this Worldspace Radio, just SMS ‘WS KEY’ to 56006. You can even call 09902584007 between 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

This offer is valid from May 5th 2008 to July 31st 2008.

Get Discounts on Gold this Akshaya Tritiya with ICICI

ICICI Bank Credit Cards has come up with good discounts when you purchase gold coins. If you use your ICICI Bank Credit Card to make a purchase at any of the ICICI Bank outlets during this Akshaya Tritiya, you will be getting good discounts of from Rs. 150 to Rs. 2500.

To avail this offer all you need to do is to visit the nearest ICICI Bank branch, and buy their exclusive gold coins which they are actually selling through their branches. These gold coins are of 99.99% pure as claimed by them. They also come in different weights, starting from 2.5 g to 50 g.

Gold as an investment is really good idea considering the rise in price of gold every day. Buying gold in the form of jewellery is absolutely cannot be said as an investment option considering that the jewelers charge many hidden charges like making charges and wastage, etc on the jewellery you are buying. It is considered to be unworthy investment when you buy gold in the form of jewellery. Instead buying gold in the form of coins or bullions which is around 24 carat or 99.99% pure is the best way to buy gold for the purpose of investment.

It has become a trend for the banks to sell gold coins too and ICICI Bank is one of the pioneer in it and I guess is the market leader in selling gold coins through banks in India.

Akshaya Tritiya, as many might be knowing, especially those in South India, on what it is. For those who don’t know, it is nothing but an auspicious day for Hindus which falls in the month of May every year. It is considered to be a very lucky and auspicious day. In the recent years, there has been a misbelief, should I say correctly that if someone buys gold in any form in this day their wealth will be multiplied in the near future.

I guess this belief has been well utilized by many jewelers across who makes crores of rupees on this single day through gold sales only. I feel that whether those who are buying these gold coins are becoming rich or not but these jewelers are actually becoming really rich with their marketing gimmick and using up the people’s belief to profit from it.

Anyway, coming back to this offer, if you are planning to buy gold this Akshaya Tritiya, you can actually buy it through ICICI Bank credit cards and get discounts.

If you are buying 2.5 g gold coin you will get a discount of Rs. 150. If you buy 5 g gold coin you will get a discount of Rs. 275. Similarly for 8 g you will get a discount of Rs. 450 and for 20 g you will be getting Rs. 1000 as discount. Finally, for 50 g pure gold from ICICI you will be getting a maximum discount of Rs. 2500.

Get Solaris Operating System DVD Free

Sun Solaris is actually giving away its operating system DVD for free. You can get it delivered to your home for free or you can also download the DVD software for free too. But if you have slow Internet and cannot download you can actually get the Sun Solaris Operating System or otherwise known as Solaris Express Developer Edition DVD delivered free anywhere across the world, including India.

You need to visit this page and choose the option of free DVD software in the drop down menu and give all your details and it will be delivered within two weeks. Or you can actually visit this page directly and give the necessary details to get it delivered free.

This offer was suggested to me by Prateek Singhal.
