First, apologies for being inactive on the blog for about 2 months. While i find some time to get the comments cleared, i hardly had any time for writing some good articles. Reason being my bad health condition as i went through 2 rounds of illness – especially the second one which was the deadly DENGUE fever that put me down for 2 weeks straight.
Last two months were one of the worst times i’ve been through since past couple of years. In the middle of all these i did have a quick family trip to Agra & Delhi which went pretty well. Thanks to CC points & vouchers, saved nearly 70% on the trip.
Fortunately, everything is back to normal and i’m fully recovered now. Thanks to everyone for keeping the discussion live and much thanks to Abhishek for taking care of the moderations & new content.
That all being said, we’ve a giveaway that you might love to hear 🙂

I definitely need some best practices from you 🙂
Thanks sid, I often check you blog for any updates. Hope you are well now
Thanks & i’m perfectly fine. Expect some new content shortly 🙂
Great blog. Keep up the wonderful work.
Thanks Sid !
Well being a new joinee to the Blog in just last 2-3 mths, this has been a surprise !
I must thank you for this Forum as I realized on reading Posts that my existing CCs were taking me for a ride in terms of Benefts / RPs.
My recent two Credit Cards have been after this forum ONLY !!
Thank You! I will try to continue to contribute to the forum as much as I can !!
Hope you recover soon & be healthy too!
P.S – As mentioned earlier too, wish to have more Blog features with more easier UX / navigation especially in recent comments / follow-up of Posts !!
Sure thing. I’ve been working on the comments part for a while. Will get it live sometime soon.
Hope to see the changes soon !!
Forgot to mention about missing “Edit your post” feature …… currently can not even correct a Typo error.
Maybe once you update the Forum UI / UX (Or we have a SignUp / Login system) , it will be available too!
I doubt if we can do “edit” part. Anyways, let me talk with the developer on that.
Hi Sid….hope ur doing fine now. Thanks for creating this site. It has been very helpful. I might not comment very often but i do check your blog very frequently.
Thnx again 🙂
Glad to hear that Saurabh!
I’ll like to congratulate and thanks Siddharth for creating such a platform where we learn and help each other with our little knowledge. I’m sure, like me, most of the readers have benefitted in some way or the other based on the posts or the comments that are there in this wonder blog. I thank Sid to allow me to be a part of this and I’m sure he has fully recovered and would be back on track sharing his valuable knowledge with us all. I’ll continue to help him in his endeavour as long as he wants. I congratulate all of our readers and I’m proud that we have been able to create a small family of enthusiastic people who refuse to be taken for a ride by the bank’s and instead strive hard to find legal way to save money through a little bit of common sense and patience. Here’s me signing off for the day. 🙂
Thanks again Abhishek! 🙂
Yes surely, thank you very much to all of you superb people
Siddharth, Abhishek Roy, Prashant Gupta, AmexGuy in particular and the rest of the contributors as well.
Thanks for taking the fight to the banks, albeit legally. 🙂

Best part of this Forum / Blog is …….. the contribution from the Moderator / Owner / Readers are all unbiased , genuine & not backed by some Bank / Financial institution…
There is no attempt to Push or Sell any particular Brand of CC.
All unbiased, genuine posts & comments !!!!
And that may be one of the Reason for Success of the forum.!
@Sid — If you want, you may want to share Some Figures here on the No of Users / Monthly Hits / Trends etc so that we may see how much traction the Blog is getting! (Only if you are comfortable with the same)
We’re 100k readers strong – Monthly unique users
Good to see you back. That period when you were ill which resulted in no blog updates, felt like some void. Happy to see some activity going on. In addition to the articles, what makes this blog unique is the wealth of information in the comments. So your kind gesture to appreciate and reward those contributions is truly remarkable. Thank you.
I wish more success to your blog in the future for all the hard work you have put in.
Thanks for the kind words Praveen.
Well done folks, you make it worthwile to visit this blog.
Had been wondering why new threads and your comments had been so far and so few in between. But after reading this understand why.
Sorry to hear about your recent health issues, but glad to know that you are recovered now. Looking fwd to seeing you kick some serious *** now.
Big thanks to A Roy dada for holding the fort in your absence.
Sure thing. 🙂
Thanks man!! Appreciate it.
