Get 5% Cash Back with Axis Bank Debit Card

Axis Bank has come up with a cash back offer which is worth having a look or to use. All you have to do during this offer period is to use your Axis Bank Debit Card for all your retail transactions, like shopping, online shopping, should be made in order to be eligible for this offer. You should have used your debit card for a minimum of Rs. 10,000 to be eligible for this offer. That is between January 24, 2009 to February 15, 2009 you should have shopped using your Axis Bank Debit Card for at least Rs. 10,000 in total.

You should have also done a minimum of five transactions which should include at least two online transactions to be eligible to receive this cash back.

Thus you would get Rs. 500 as cash back at the end of the offer period and the same will be credit back to your account at the end of March 2009.

This is a worthy offer if you are the sort of person who uses cash rather than credit cards for all your shopping needs and has a Axis Bank Debit Card. Thus instead of using cash you can use your Axis Bank debit card while shopping and get the benefit of 5% cash back (i.e., Rs. 500 cash back). The only drawback of this offer is the pre-condition of having at least two online transactions (shopping) to have been done during this offer period.

If you have more than one debit card in your single account, the transaction made on each card will be taken into account separately rather than as single. Only shopping done using your debit card will be eligible for this offer and cash withdrawals and other transactions like bill pay, etc are not eligible under this.

The Online Shopping Guide and Tips

Since the offers are not so forthcoming these days since being off season of sorts, I thought of writing about a general and simple guide on buying online, especially in India. Since buying online is the order of the day these days, it is our duty as a buyer to have adequate knowledge about it, so that it would make your life a whole lot easier. Here I have tried to compile some tips from the experience I have gained all these years as a regular online shopper.


Comparison Shopping
One essential tip you would need to follow while shopping online would be to do the comparison shopping, this plays a vital role in saving you at least some extra bucks. If you are planning to buy a product online, don’t restrict yourself to just one shopping portal to shop for it, just visit as much shopping sites as you can and look for the price of the same item and decide where you will get them for cheap. But while looking for them, also look for the hidden costs like shipping charges and which site offer them for cheap too.

Offers and Deals
Another great advantage of shopping online is that you get good offers and deals or at least that is what is being said by these so-called shopping portals. But in reality many have some hidden pre-conditions applied to it, you will need to find out the real truth in them by reading the hidden terms and conditions applied and decide on whether to go for it or not. Even here the comparison shopping both online and offline would help you make that decision.

Shipping Charges
As said above one major hindrance when it comes to shopping online is that of the exorbitant shipping charges that most of the shopping websites charge us. Do lookout for the shipping charges before you actually order the item online. Look for such shopping portals which offer you cheap or nominal shipping charges.

Return Policy
You will need to also find out about the return policy of the particular shopping portal that you are planning shop online. As you may then find out that you would not be able to do so due to their no-return policy. Thus read their terms and conditions about it before actually buying online since you don’t want to end up getting a defective product and not being able to return it back. Some sites like Indiatimes have a rather customer unfriendly return policy where we will need to do it with great difficulty with packing, returning, etc. Do lookout for it before buying online.

Secure Shopping
Online security is the most essential part which we often times tend to ignore when shopping online. With the news that we hear every day about credit card details being hacked due to using them at unauthorized or insecure shopping portals, it is up to us to use it wisely and use it only at secure and authorized shopping portals, especially in India where this awareness is yet to catch up among us. Check for the security seal that most of the sites display these day. Also check whether they are offer 128-bit encryption or not. If you are not sure about these technical stuff, just avoid using your credit or debit card at sites which you are not much familiar with. Use them only at known and reputed shopping sites in India.

Read the Fine Print
Reading the fine print is one activity if followed can give you good results especially with shopping online for freebies or offers or anything for that matter. Just make it as a point to read those unwanted yet essential terms and conditions of the shopping sites that you shop with. This is one good habit which would surely help you in a great deal even long term.

Don’t be fooled by the extraordinary product description or on the looks of the product you buy, as the product you will receive may look and have an entirely different description especially in India and this, I have experienced myself multiple times when shopping online. Think twice before buying a product online about the quality of the item you may buy, as there have been many instances where you would receive very inferior quality product although it may sound very cheap on the outlook and description.

Participate in Chennai Open Contest and Win Tickets & Merchandise

Kingfisher, one of the lead sponsors of the Chennai Open 2009 is currently running a contest in which you will need to answer four very easy questions submitting along with your personal details and you would win match tickets for two persons with an all-expense paid trip to Chennai Open Finals and also a chance to win 100 other Kingfisher merchandise during this contest period. This Kingfisher Chennai Open Contest is open till January 7, 2009, so hurry before it is too late.

You will need to visit the quiz page and answer the four easy questions about the nationality of the four tennis players who are participating in this edition of Chennai Open 2009 which will be taking place from January 5 to January 11, 2009. Answer the questions along with your personal details and submit and if you are just lucky enough you would be selected as a winner.

The nationality of the players Carlos Moya, Nikolay Davydenko, Stanislas Wawrinka, Leander Paes & Mahesh Bhupathi! can be found from their respective Wikipedia pages if you are not sure about the answer for all, except for the great Lee-Hesh pair.

You can send in any number of entries during the contest period. Since this is a contest you are not guaranteed to win the prizes just by participating and the winners will be selected based on a lucky draw conducted by United Breweries. You will contacted individually by the Kingfisher if you have indeed won any of the prizes mentioned above.

Despite being in Chennai for long, I could not attend even a single Chennai Open for the past few years and I hope to attend at least this year, either by winning tickets in this contest (if lucky enough) or purchasing tickets and watch the great tennis legends of Indian Tennis Lee-Hesh (playing separately this year).

If someone who had participated in this contest and had indeed won, I would be delighted if you could post about it in the comments here, so at least we know that contests such as these are indeed rewarding the participants and I would be doubly delighted to know that I could help you win in such contests by sharing it here and would be more motivated to post more such “easy to compete” or “easy to complete” contests in India.

This contest is open from December 31, 2009 to January 7, 2009 at 11 p.m. Visit the contest page here. Read the terms and conditions of this contest here.
