Diwali Bonus Offer for BSNL Broadband users

BSNL has announced a special Diwali bonus scheme for all the BSNL Broadband users who have been active with BSNL Broadband for the past six months and have used it till the end of November without any breakage in service or stoppage, etc.

With this offer of Deepavali Bonus, all the existing BSNL Broadband users can actually get double usage from their existing broadband plans for the month of November. That is, you can download twice the amount of total download limit implied on your plan.

For example if you have a plan with 1 GB of download or upload limit, then with this offer, during the month of November, you can download/upload up to 2 GB with the same plan charges. Hence, virtually you will be getting 1 GB free download. Similarly you can get it for all other limited plans with BSNL Broadband. Obviously this will not be applicable for the unlimited usage plans with BSNL.

This offer is valid only for the month of November. No plan changes will be entertained during this month and all the plan changes will happen only during the month of December.

The only pre-condition, as far as I know or I can comprehend, is that you should have been the BSNL Broadband customer for the past six months.

This plan is valid in the Maharashtra Circle, Punjab, Bangalore and Chennai Circle as far as I know and must be applicable for the other BSNL circles too, not sure. You must check with your BSNL office or BSNL helpline at 1500 (available only at select cities) to confirm the same before you start with your usage. Those who know other cities in which this offer is applicable can mention the same in the comment section of this post.

More details about this offer can be found here, here and here.

This offer was shared to me by Sandeep Babber.

And this special offer is only valid till October 31, 2008 on all branches of ICICI. And this offer can also be availed at the ICICI branches on Dhanteras, i.e. October 26, 2008 (Sunday) and the branches are open on that Sunday to help us buy on that day.

The discounts for the gold coins according to their weight are given below:

2.5 g – Rs. 150
5 g – Rs. 250
8 g – Rs. 400
20 g – Rs. 1000
50 g – Rs. 2500

And for the ICICI Bank Credit Card Holders, there is a special offer of buying these gold coins at 0% EMI. Hence you can buy it and pay it in easy installments later without having to burn your pocket immediately! And also you will have the satisfaction of brought the gold coin on that auspicious day or before.

But with the price of gold escalating like the rocket one would have think twice before venturing into buying gold these days. But still instead of buying gold in the form of ornaments it is always advisable to buy it in the form of gold coins. This is because if you are planning to buy gold for the purposes of investment, buying jewelry is not a good option as it will attract unwanted charges like wastage and making charges which will only make your investment go in drain. Instead buying gold coins and bars is an ideal way to add up your investment portfolio and selling will also be easier and will get the prevailing rate without any deductions.

By the way, coming back to this offer you find more details about buying gold coin with this offer at ICICI Bank.

The Online Shopping Festival from Indiaplaza.in

Indiaplaza, finally has launched its own offer for this festive season, as it seems they were the only major shopping portal in India to have not come up with an exclusive offer for this Diwali and on the whole this festive season which includes up to Christmas. Now they have introduced an offer of assured gifts worth Rs. 5000 on purchase of Rs. 5000 and above during this offer period.

To avail this offer, all you need to do is to buy for Rs. 5000 during the offer period of October 13, 2008 to December 31, 2008. You need not buy at a single go, instead you can make purchases at different time but your total value during the offer period should cross Rs. 5000 to enter into this offer.  You will be sent an e-scratch card.  You should scratch that card.

If you do so you would win any of the one assured gifts as mentioned below:

Rs.5000 cash
Fuel Gift Voucher worth Rs.5000/-
Jewellery Gift Voucher worth Rs.5000/-
Holiday Voucher for 2
This offer is not valid if you make your purchases at Travel section of Indiaplaza but can make it at other sections to avail it.

This looks like a promising offer but just as any other offer, there is a free holiday voucher or package included along with the other free gifts. Nowadays most of the offers such as this or similar ones have started to include holiday package in their list of gifts which otherwise would include some cool prizes as well. This inclusion of holiday package into the free gifts have become a bad trend.

This is because around 90% of the prize winners will be getting the holiday package or voucher as their gift, I suppose, and the rest of 10% will get other gifts. Since many won’t prefer to avail the holiday package as they might need to shell some of their own money with it and also there are lots of hidden conditions applied to it.

I hope that they stop this trend of giving free holiday vouchers if they really want to reward their customers.

Anyway coming back to this offer, you can avail it even if you don’t mind getting the holiday voucher as the free gift. Who knows you might also end up winning other prizes like cash back of Rs. 5000, fuel voucher or even the jewellery voucher. It all depends on your luck, as always.

This offer is valid between October 13, 2008 to December 31, 2008.

Get Free Rs. 500 Gift Voucher from Naaptol

Naaptol the new social shopping comparison website in India is currently giving away free Rs. 500 gift voucher if you register with them for free. This free gift voucher can only be used at Homeshop18 and nowhere else. This voucher can be used only if you purchase for a minimum value of Rs. 2500 from Homeshop18. Hence this free gift voucher is similar to a discount voucher rather than a gift voucher.

This is only a limited period promotional offer from Naaptol to all new members who join their site for free.

Naaptol is a new comparison based social network type of portal where you can view most of the products listed but are not sold but they will instead let you compare the products available there and help you choose among them the best for your shopping needs.

Just as a promotional offer they are giving free the Homeshop18 gift certificate worth Rs. 500 for all those who register for free at their site before November 23, 2008. But remember this is not exactly a gift voucher but a discount voucher which can only be used on a minimum purchase of Rs. 2500 at Homeshop18. Hence you can decide whether you really want to avail the free gift voucher or not. You can claim this Rs. 500 voucher from Naaptol to be used at Homeshop18 only if you are planning for a purchase of Rs. 2500 and above. Else this gift voucher deems to be of no use on its own.

You cannot get two or more vouchers and club it for a single purchase and only use one voucher at a time.

I am glad there more such services like Naaptol for online shopping communities but it is a pity that more such venture bundle it out as quick as they become famous. As it happened with a similar service Myproduktspace which shut shop within months after their much hyped opening. This I came to know only when I tried to redeem the points I earned there for a gift and they are not replying and there is no activity at all at their site. Although Naaptol is different from that of Myproduktspace. But still I hope Naaptol grows unlike many other start-ups in this niche.

This offer as said above is valid only if you register before November 23, 2008. You can find more about this offer here.

Thanks Abhishek for sharing this offer.

Special Diwali Dhamaal Offer from Homeshop18

After all the previous diwali offers from various portal and stores across, it is now the time for Homeshop18, the online shopping portal from Network18 to jump into that bandwagon with their special Diwali Dhamaal offer or unlimited Diwali excitement offer. There are loads of prizes to be won with this offer or, should I say, contest. To avail the offer all you need to do is to purchase from their website for this diwali and become eligible for these prizes.

If you make a purchase at the Diwali gifts section you can win assured prize of Homeshop18 gift certificates worth Rs. 100 and Rs. 500. And other than this you also get to win prizes like a trip to Paris!, trip to Thailand, LCD TV, etc from this contest. All the eligible entries will be entered into a lucky draw which will take place on November 12, 2008 to select the winners.

Other than the above prizes, you also get a chance to win a diamond pendant which is said to be worth Rs. 2500 if you could make a purchase at jewellery section of Home Shop 18. You can also win a Mitashi DVD player or Philips MP3 player if you make purchase at electronics, cameras, computers, or mobiles section. If you buy any household appliance from their site you could have a chance to win IFB microwave oven, IFB Elena Washing machine, or IFB Neptune dishwasher. One lucky winner will win a Chevrolet Optra if he/she makes a purchase of IFB Appliance at Homeshop18.

The assured gift voucher of Rs. 500 can be used only if you use it to purchase for products value of Rs. 2500 but Rs. 100 voucher can be used just like a gift voucher rather than like a discount voucher. These vouchers can be used till November 30, 2008.

I am not a big fan of such way to reward the consumers with contests, as the chances of winning will be far too low. Instead they might have gone for an assured prize, even if the assured prize be of lower value, instead of such contests. This is just my opinion. I am saying this because the Rs. 500 voucher can only be used for a minimum of Rs. 2500 and above, which means that it is like a discount voucher. Anyway if you are lucky this Diwali, who knows you could end up winning any of the prizes mentioned above if you decide to make a purchase at Homeshop 18.

To know more about this offer from Homeshop18 and choose diwali gifts you can visit this page. You can also read all the terms and conditions applicable for this offer there. This offer is valid till October 28, 2008.

Indiatimes Shopping Diwali Offer with Flat 60% Back

It seems that Indiatimes Shopping has combined the flat 60% (cash) back offer into that of Diwali Offers namely "Diwali Celebrations" and hence now you can find all the products listed in this offer, of flat 60%, in one place here.

But remember that the flat 60% back will be in the form of multiple gift vouchers in the denomination of Rs. 250 each of the total value you get back and you cannot combine the gift vouchers into one voucher for your purchases and hence can be availed only individually.

I am mentioning this again because they have combined the offer with special Diwali sale and just wanted to let you know that this is one among the numerous option you have this year for the Diwali Shopping online as well as offline.
