Books indirectly free

Earlier I used to recharge my mobile via recharge outlets only. Although I was aware about but I couldn't trust it fully as few cases had happened when people didn't get the recharge and the refund also didn't come that time.

So when I got to know about Freecharge, the main thing I liked was that it was giving various free coupons along with the recharge. Thus I utilized several McD coupons for getting bargains for my Saturday lunch there. On the other hand, I also used to take Indiaplaza coupons from Freecharge, providing a discount of Rs.100/- on a total bill of Rs 400, on already discounted books so much so that almost every book finally costed me just a little more than 50% of its MRP.

Afterwards, when I came in contact with BlogAdda for book reviews, I also encountered various online contests running on the site simultaneously. I participated in many and won several Early Bird Flipkart vouchers of Rs.500 denominations which I utilized to satiate my thirst for reading more and more Hindi literature books, hence getting mosy of my purchased books almost free.

And now with the presence of GoPaisa on web, it will be very much helpful for me to regularly search for current coupons, cashbacks, bargains on different book selling websites like HomeShop18, Infibeam, etc. in addition with the others already mentioned in the post.

Give me more!

Always ready for more and more discounts, cashback, bargains, may prove very beneficial to my requirements. I was looking for any discounts or cashback available on some sports site.

Last December I had bought Scott Aspect 640 for Rs. 45k approx. with basic accessories. Since then, I have been buying one or two accessories every month, as my budget permits as these things cost very high. I have bought cycling gloves from Snapdeal on discount, Btwin bib shorts on heavy discount utilizing my Vodafone Cycling Marathon complimentary coupon for

Yesterday I was browsing the GoPaisa website 2nd time since the contest began. And guess what, luckily I found listed as the recently added partner at GoPaisa. Since I have been aspiring to buy one of the most imprtant accessory for night rides ir evening ride-outs, the front light for my MTB cycle, I was quite excited to learn about the 5% cashback offered here.

I am so visibly excited to get to know about this deal. Have been planning to buy this item since last one and a half month now. But due to something or the other, I always forget to place the order using one more coupon I got complimentary from the same source. Now since I will also be eligible for a decent cashback, I will be going to purchase it as soon as reach back Bangalore. Just can't delay it any longer or else it might happen that whatever discount, bargain, cashback I might have got sooner is no longer valid. Hope all is well!

Coupons, cashback, bargains, vouchers have become an integral part of my online shopping for quite a few years now.

I was introduced to online discount vouchers by early on via on online mobile recharges. I bought many literature books, mainly Hindi language, to quench my thirst for reading using Rs. 100/- discount on purchase amount of Rs. 400/- just by paying 10 rs. extra while recharging my mobile talktime. Since then occasionally I have purchased various items n meals using excessive discount coupons & vouchers.

But the best of them has been Flipkart and Bookmyshow gift vouchers from BlogAdda contests.

Best price mobile shopping

Coupons, cashback, bargains, vouchers have helped me a lot in last few years to assist my online shopping. I was planning to buy Micromax Canvas 2.2 A114 for my fiancee for one month. As soon as I observed the price decline on Flipkart, I used my blog affiliation to purchase the android which gave me a cashback of 4% directly.

In addition, I had accumulated a lot of Flipkart vouchers from blogadda contests. Applied them to get a total discount of more than Rs.2000/- so as to finally pay through Payzippy to get extra Rs.150/- voucher for future transaction. My fiancee loved the phone, and it feels to be a very decent discounted purchase, totally worth the price I got it at.

Thank you BlogAdda and Flipkart :)

Got another best bargain

Got another best bargain while looking to purchase android smartphone for my fiancee earlier last month. Since GOSF was already over, I was looking for other offers online for atleast one month but nowhere I was unable to find the best price shopping.

Also on Flipkart, the product from WS Retail wasn't available and other sellers were selling it at high prices of above Rs. 11,500/-. To know more which phone I was so intensely looking for and how did I manage to avail the best of discounts, cashback, coupons, and bargains, watch out for my next post in the ongoing series.

GOSF, Greatest Online Shopping Festival... a Google initiative, presented to me an excellent opportunity to purchase my first android smartphone as I described in the previous post of mine. I myself was lucky enough to make the best use

Awesome discount I got

Last December I was looking to buy my first smartphone. I wanted to purchase it online because it's always economical that way and reliable too if you get it from trusted and popular websites. My budget was upto Rs.12k, and I wanted to get the best android phone out of it, so my 1st choice was Micromax Canvas series. 

In the middle of the month, choosing which one to buy from that series, I encountered something called GOSF... the Greatest Online Shopping Festival, a Google initiative, on its second day of running out of total 3 offer days. Researching it more, I discovered some really great cashbacks, discounts and bargains offered by almost all of the online retailers.

By that time, I had made up my mind for Canvas HD A116 white. So I looked for the best discount under GOSF on Flipkart, Infibeam, Tradus, Snapdeal, Indiaplaza, Saholic, etc. Flipkart was offering a cashback of 10% on some credit card transactions under GOSF, while on Infibeam I encountered a much better offer of direct discount of Rs.2000 from the selling price of the phone. Hence on the last day of GOSF, I went to my friend's quarters and using his credit card got it for just around Rs. 10,150/- (using my blog affiliate link too).

But if I had known about GoPaisa that time, my search would have been optimized better. Still better late than never, I plan to use their site's discounts, coupons, bargains for any online shopping in the time to come.

For shopaholics

As soon as I got to know about this BlogAdda contest, I visited the site and found about this amazing deal for Axis bank customers on Flipkart. Sounds like a great idea, is it not!

Axis: 10% CashBack On Purchase Rs.7500+Expires on 16 Mar 2014
Get Flat 10% Cashback on all purchases above Rs 7,500 with Axis Bank Debit & Credit Cards. No Coupon Code Required.

I told about it to my friend just now as he has been planning to buy a Samsung smartphone. And since he holds an Axis bank debit card, he was so happy to hear about this cashback. Though Flipkart never offers coupons, but it is much better than to bargain offline with a mobile phone seller. Customer is the winner here, and it was possible due to is a true website for shopaholics like me and my gang of friends. Hope to continue with other experiences ;)

Dream trip to Malaysia

Malaysia, truly Asia... this is the tagline of an ad deeply embedded in my psyche since the time this advertisement of Malaysia Tourism used to feature on national television of India. Therefore, when BlogAdda posted this contest where we have a chance to visit one of the best tourist places of Asia and world, I could not restrain myself to write a blogpost for the same

Malaysia as a country is a bubbling, bustling melting pot of races and religions and offers a range of delicacies making available a gastronomical paradise for the people. It is a warm home to hundreds of colourful festivals.

I would definitely like to visit the pristine beaches at Langkawi Island, Kedah or something more adventurous like visiting the Gunung Mulu National Park, Sarawak to experience the flora & fauna.

Malaysia is ranked as 9th among the most visited place in the world.

Top places I would like to visit:

1. Petronas Twin Towers

Ever since seeing these twin skyscrapers in the
movie Don: the chase begins (2007) directed by Farhan Akhtar mainly in Malaysia, this piece of architecture has held my attention. The marvellous doubledecker Skybridge connecting the twin towers on 41st floor is a classic feat of human accomplishment. This would, undoubtedly, be the first place in my to-visit places in Malaysia.

2. Langkawi Island: the jewel of Kedah

An archipelago of 100+ islands in the Andaman Sea, boasts of several pristine and picturesque beaches like Pantai Cenang, Pantai Tengah, Burau Bay, etc. It also houses the UNESCO Cultural Heritage site World Geopark whose main conversation areas are among the most popular tourist hotspots in Malaysia.

3. Gunung Mulu National Park

It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site that encompasses caves and karst formations in a mountainous equatorial rainforest setting. The park is famous for its caves and largest known natural chamber - Sarawak chamber, which is said to be so big that 40 Boeing 747s can be accomodated without overlapping their wings. Who will not want to visit such a natural wonder!
Furthermore, it is said that this region is also home to various kinds of flora and fauna. Even 27 different species of bats are seen to be reported there. Thus, this National Park forms the 3rd in my to be visited places if Malaysia calls me.

4. Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Would surely like to experience such a wonderful sight when hundreds of hot air colorful balloons will be soaring high into the air. Let's hope I get place to be in one of such hot air balloons, thus touching the bare sky with my hands.

5. Cameron Highlands

It is one of Malaysia's most extensive hill stations, of the size of Singapore. If time is there, I will keep it as my backup visiting place while in Malaysia. Home to several endangered flora and fauna species, this place also finds a place in my list.
