Recharge your Mobile and get free coupons is the latest and new service with which you can recharge your prepaid mobiles available across India and for doing the same you can avail gift coupons worth the same or similar amount from either the Barista Lavazza or McDonalds. This virtually means that you are getting the recharge for free, well almost free though. The coupon will be delivered to your address for a delivery charge of Rs. 10.

With their recharge option you can recharge almost all the prepaid mobile services available in India except for Airtel and Idea Cellular at the moment and the same will be activated soon, according to them. You can recharge online using any of the payment option like credit card, debit card, bank accounts, etc.

For the recharge of Rs. 10 to Rs. 50 you will get a free coupon worth Rs. 50 either Barista or McDonald's. For prepaid recharge worth Rs. 51 to Rs. 100 you will get coupons worth Rs. 100. Similarly for recharge worth Rs. 101 to Rs. 150 one can get coupons worth Rs. 150 and so on and you can choose either the Barista coupons worth Rs. 50 each or can choose both Barista and McDonald's worth the amount of recharge. But you will be charged a flat delivery charge of Rs. 10 per delivery of any number of coupons to your address.

The coupons are valid against a minimum purchase of Rs. 50 and above and hence this virtually means that you get to buy worth Rs. 50 and you get the same valued McDonald's product or coffee for free.

Visit for more details about this offer. I heard that they are going to introduce more and new coupons as against the existing Barista and McDonald’s coupons. It is a worthy offer as anyway you are going to recharge your prepaid mobile elsewhere but here you get coupons for free. But in my opinion they should introduce more options in terms of coupons and those coupons should be full gift voucher rather than a discount coupon.

This offer was shared to me by Naman Sarawagi (a regular reader of Offers Galore) who is the product head of this service.

Just visit the store well before the weekend to avoid getting stuck in the crowd which is surely expected on this weekend starting this Friday, at all Big Bazaar stores.

This offer cannot be clubbed with any other existing offers. This Thank You offer from Konica is valid till August 12, 2010.

Each print costs you Rs. 3.99 at Konica Color Lab and hence the total cost for the 35 photo prints would be around Rs. 140 to 150 including tax but you will need to Rs. 25 as shipping cost if you reside outside of Chennai and wanted to get those prints delivered at your place. You don’t have to pay for the shipping charges if you opt to pick it up from your nearest Konica Color Labs in Chennai. Else this shipping charge includes even for those in Chennai.

Get Free T-shirt from Shorty Capone

Shorty Capone a leading accessories brand which is originally from U.S. has entered India and is giving away free T-shirts for all those who visit their Facebook page and “Like” it and then send them an email with your name and address to receive their free promotional T-shirts delivered at their address. It seems they are giving it away for all those who do it and not looks like a contest though.

But try it at your own liking as I am not exactly sure whether this works or not but according to their Facebook page, they are still giving away free promotional T-shirts to all those who are liking their page and sending an email. I have tried it and mailed them today and waiting to receive the free T shirt myself and hence I cannot guarantee about its genuineness, just ask them directly about it at their Facebook page about it. I am just sharing it!

Just try this at your discretion, but as a trial and error basis you can try it to get free t-shirt from Shorty Capone. They have their stores at major Indian cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, etc. though. They have an online store at as well.

Just visit their Facebook page and then like it and send an email to with your personal details to receive the free t-shirt.
