90 days:huh:. Will I receive any confirmation message from axis?

 

Honestly, no idea. As long as you input the fields in grabdeals site, and add your product to cart after that and buy, it should be fine. 

Generally Axis does send cb messages after transaction.

How to get the Amex cashback? Not seeing it anywhere. 

 

Check AMEX CC dashboard, under offers. Expiring tomorrow. You've to add to card first in a typical AMEX fashion. :mellow:

I suggest to upgrade to platinum charge. With thair cashback offers, you will get back more than what you paid.

60k a year ? Any idea on their cb offers ? It looks like a real high end lifestyle card tbh. 

60k a year is too much unless the cb is exceptionally good.

Was this worth it when traveling was possible?

 

AMEX lounges are much much better than the usual airport lounges. I used to travel 10 days a month, and hence good lounge access was something I really looked forward to. 

You also get Taj inner circle membership (along with a bunch of other memberships), and if you're staying in those properties, decent returns/discounts. 

Plus they run decent CB offers on higher tier cards (case in point the current offer of flat 20% CB on certain sites). I see this quite often, almost once a quarter.

HDFC Regalia has better perks in terms of lounge visits. Also, fairly decent rewards to air voucher redemption. 

 

Go Amex if you value customer service and want to use it exclusively for online purchses. PoS support is still lacking.

My LTF HDFC Diners Black application has been pending because of the stay on new HDFC CCs, so was wondering which is better.

I intend to travel frequently but don't know when that's going to be the case. Only if my employer had such an CC offering :wallbash:

I'll look like an egomaniac saying this, but most cards offer access to Premium Plaza or similar lounges, and they are not worth going to IMO, even if you can get in for free. Those places tend to be filled to the brim with everyone holding a lounge card (which is easily available on most cards nowadays). 

Vistara/AMEX/GVK lounges in Delhi/Mumbai are decent options. Bangalore - the lesser said the better. Only 1 working lounge (last visit was in Feb 2020, no idea what's the update now), and you'll be lucky to find a place during rush hour. 

Lounges on the international side tend to be better, specially with a business class ticket.

I am holding it for last 3 years and every year I got double of what I paid, back from card.  Its exceptionally good card with lot many other perks. 

DM me if you have any questions.

We are swaying from main topic and should continue this discussion if required in credit card thread. Tag me there if anyone have any questions.

Really on the fence about buying a Kindle Oasis. 

Its at MRP of 22K currently on Amazon. If anybody knows a better deal or price, please tag me!

 

Bit of hefty price tag for an eReader but I feel like splurging a bit.....

Thanks for sharing this. I've made a purchase using the affiliate link, is there any way to know the status of cashback?

 

Did anybody receive the cashback/confirmation for cashback?
Just wanted to check before I make the purchase....
