Cardback in April 2013 – Updates for our Friends

For those of you who are interested in knowing what we’ve been up to, here’s a public summary of what we did and achieved last month – April 2013:

  1. We now have all dining offers in Delhi / NCR for these banks: ICICI, SBI, Kotak, Citibank, Amex, HDFC, StanChart. This amounts to around 650 venues in the city where Cardback shows at least one offer on cards issued by at least one of these banks.
  2. We’ve upgraded our servers, so now those offers will come to you 2x to 3x times faster. Give it a spin :)
  3. Our blog’s regional Alexa ranking for India has jumped up by 150,000 ranks in less than 10 days, and we’ve started getting hundreds of hits here on a daily basis. Thanks for all your support. Keep the love flowing. It’s heartening!

Addendum: For those of you who aren’t aware, we’ve been a partner of dineout for a while now. What this means is that, along with seeing offers on your cards at eating places in Delhi / NCR, you can also book tables at dineout partner restaurants, and get discount for that too – all from within our app.

Micromax – The New Troll King!

If you live in India, we’re sure you would have come across the Samsung own now offer at least once in the last two weeks. Its everywhere – on TV, on the Radio, in print media, on the web!

Come Apr 26, 2013 – Micromax has an answer to Samsung’s offer – a troll that ridicules EMI and cashback schemes on expensive phones by using this slogan – “Can Own Now Without EMI” (Notice how this is a play on the name of Samsung’s OWN NOW campaign)

Watch the actual ads and you’ll smile (or laugh) for sure :D

Samsung’s OWN NOW ad first:

Now watch Micromax’s Can Own Now Without EMIs Ad:

Also, if you look closely, Micromax’s canvas range of phones have an uncanny resemblance to Samsung’s Galaxy Note series, albeit with a much lesser price tag (under ₹15,000).

But Samsung is not the only biggie that Micromax has trolled. They’ve done this with Apple and their iPhone too in the past. See these print ads and how they’ve taken on the iPhone and its price!

Micromax-i-can-afford-this-phone-4Sure

Great marketing we must say!

But even if you can own a Micromax phone now, will you, instead of a Samsung Note or an iPhone to save on costs? Let us know in the comments :)
