    Get this. I use this for my ipad and iphone 12/13. Each port delivers 20W and havent run into any issues so far. Also extremely handy while travelling 


    Belkin Fast Charging,Universally Compatible Dual Usb-C 40W Pd Wall Charger-Power Delivery 3.0 Certified,Each Port Delivers 20W Of Power For All Cellular Phones, Usb C Mobile Phones And Devices (White) https://amzn.eu/d/i1nJB3t


    I am not sure but 1+ dash/warp charging does not work with all chargers. So I am not sure if this will be able to dash/warp charge or not because this is just 20W while the oneplus charger was 30W.

    Nope. Infinia will still continue to be the best card in India. Yes Amazon is a big blow but this I am sure applies to Amex multiplier program and other card programs as well so technically it’s a big blow for all the reward multiplier programs. Infinia and Amazon ICICI perfect combo. 

    I meant for people who use Amazon frequently. Milestone based card might be better.

    But Amazon went for the jugular and has disabled paying bills upwards of 10k with anything except Amazon Pay UPI.

    No CC, no pay balance. That's a sh*t move because only base rewards are given on direct bill payment and they want to take advantage of convenience and force people to use their UPI.

    Might as well just pay directly on merchant's website.

    What about the normal offers? For example on the Sony WHXM4 there is a 2k discount on all cards, so will the icici card get the 2k discount and the 5% cash back as well ? 

    Yes, it will. Also, you will also get extra 750 special discount in addition (depends when the promotion is running).

    This is going to be a big blow for Infinia/DCB for sure. I am glad I applied for the ICICI Amazon card as well. Going to use that for all Amazon orders going forward. 


    On a side note DCB acceptance is worse than Amex. Zepto/BlinkIt don't accept DCB.

    Amazon ICICI is still not that great. Come ICICI sale, it is never eligible for the discount. But yes, most probably the best option left for Amazon, which bitch Amazon wanted to do.


    DCB works mostly on all big box stores, Zepto/Blinkit no idea.

  5. @hannibal09 Do you think a portfolio of LTF DCB, Citi PM (hopefully Prestige later on) and possibly Amazon ICICI be best going forward for airmiles value add?


    I was planning to add almost every purchase on DCB but with Amazon gone, now planning to add most expenses on Prestige if I am able to get it and then only the purchases which can still provide bonus points will go on DCB.


    Other options I considered:


    StanC Ultimate has lower fees but not much when if comes to airlines partners, not sure how good their redemption value is on normal booking.

    Axis Magnus only has Club Vistara as far as I know. 1L milestone is pretty sweet though.

    Amex, will consider when bans lifts.

    Quick update : Spoke with Airtel guys. Said they can bridge the airtel router but i need to pay for static ip for it to be permanent else after ever restart they have to re-do all the settings. They also said i cannot do anything by myself. Only they can change the settings.




    Not true. Bridging can be done without static IP. But I am not sure if there is any restriction from Airtel's end. They setup weird gateways.

  7. Called Smartbuy Concierge and was told the same thing. From 1st Amazon won't be a Smartbuy partner.
    Bahut bada dhakka laga.


    Although Smartbuy still has decent options for flights/hotels/products but with removal of Amazon, DCB/Infinia advantage has been greatly reduced with this. I don't think anyone wants to transact on Flipkart, lol.


    So in case your use case was only limited to Amazon and not other merchants on Smartbuy. StanC Ultimate starts looking good because of the similar reward rate and lower fees, not many airmiles partners though.


    Citi Prestige has better base reward rate but high fees and quite a few exceptions.


    I didn't transact that much on Amazon via Smartbuy because I had Regalia, was looking forward to use DCB but I guess not.

    Will I get:


    1) 54000/150 = 360*5 = 1800*3 = 5400 but capped to 2500, so 2500 in total (cap on both base+bonus RPs)


    2) Base RPs = 54000/150 = 360*5 = 1800

        Bonus RPs = 54000/150 = 360*5 = 1800*3 = 5400 - 1800 = 3600, capped to 2500 = 2500 (cap only on Bonus RPs)

        Total RPs = 1800 + 2500 = 4300


    Will really appreciate the help.

    All of this might go in vain.

    People aren't able to buy Amazon Vouchers and hit/miss on Amazon transactions.

    Not sure how many people will be able to take advantage of Smartbuy without Amazon.


    Amazon being shitty, Amz icici doesn't qualify for their own ICICI discounts.

    Milennia might just end up being good option for Amazon now.

    Such a shitty move.

    2nd one. Cap is on bonus points

    I know that but sometimes their bonus points credit don't make sense.

    Only if they give details about bonus points credit for individual transactions and not just a lumpsum credit.

    They should also do it when the transaction is posted on the card and not days later.


    Still trying hard for DCB, need to make an Apple transaction and SB is the best option.

    Wtf is up with HDFC and ICICI ? None of their cards are now accepted at the (relatively) new 080 Bangalore lounge. It's primarily Amex and few Visa Signature variants (SBI signature, Kotax Visa Sig Debit (not credit), Priority Pass among a few others). 

    Even HDFC Infinia and DCB holders were sent to the usual overfilled BLR lounge. 

    Amex add on card works btw, for 600 extra. 

    Amex can't mitigate the ban fast enough.

    With an Amex, I would pretty much be sorted with the rest of my cards.

  11. @hannibal09 Need some clarification regarding HDFC Smartbuy Points cap. Does the daily cap include base RPs or only Bonus RPs for a Smartbuy transaction?


    Let's say I make a purchase of 54000 on SB using DCB which has 2500/day cap and 3x multiplier.


    Will I get:


    1) 54000/150 = 360*5 = 1800*3 = 5400 but capped to 2500, so 2500 in total (cap on both base+bonus RPs)


    2) Base RPs = 54000/150 = 360*5 = 1800

        Bonus RPs = 54000/150 = 360*5 = 1800*3 = 5400 - 1800 = 3600, capped to 2500 = 2500 (cap only on Bonus RPs)

        Total RPs = 1800 + 2500 = 4300


    Will really appreciate the help.

    Also quite a few from scamgang/those owning both consoles have subscribed.

    I myself subscribed to PS plus extra an hour ago.

    Certainly contributing more to the PS ecosystem than the 2 ponies who keep calling us Xbots :P

    I own both but I already have backlog on PS5 otherwise would have upgraded to extra.

    I will be starting my first ever job in a like 2 weeks as a software engineer and kinda very nervous. Can anyone give me some pointers? It's remote for the first month

    Kidhar lgi?

    PM me and I'll try to see if I can find out someone who works there.

    Can you please explain this part? How would Infinia fare in this comparison?

    Base RPs remain the same.

    Bonus RPs will increase as Infinia has 5x SB multiplier.

    Bonus Daily Cap for Infinia is 7500/day and 15k/month.

    In case of Infinia, SB is almost always the better choice.


    Just think what kind of value SB used to be before, multiplier used to be 10x for Infinia and DCB with NO cap.

    Card Abusers ruined it for everyone.
