Issue with another credit card

Now after solving one credit card issue which had levied debit interest charges and had annual fee associated with it and now I wanted to reveal tactics of one more credit card. So, I have been using this credit card for past 3+ years and this credit card doesn’t have any annual fee associated with it. So, I have been using this card as a backup credit card and interest charges are usually higher than the other credit cards. This credit card has reward points as its benefits and I have accumulated few reward points to it. Now I found a workaround for earning more reward points in the card, just by adding balance to the online shopping portal and even by paying bills through that online portal. I have paid few bills with this credit though the online portal which have 10X reward points for each transaction made and was hoping to earn big for the current statement period. However again I was shocked to see current credit card statement as it had lesser reward points than I anticipated and wanted to validate the Terms. When I checked the terms of the reward points, I was shocked to see that there was maximum slab on reward points could be earned per month. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

Lack of support from new Delivery Expert

So, the initial days went smooth as I had some standard information available with me and there no expectation from our team, as we were waiting for some clarifications from the client. After few days, the client had responded to the questionnaire and now there were lot of activities to be completed and I need complete support from this new delivery expert. I have heard some information from may team members, that it might be difficult to extract information from this delivery expert and otherwise the delivery expert would be helpful enough to complete the work on time. With such expectation I had my mind set and I have already put on some solution in place with my delivery understanding and all that new delivery expert needs to do is to, just check and customize it based on client requirements and her delivery experience. I have shared my solution to deck to the delivery expert for the review and to customize it further for the client requirements. But, I was completely shocked and devastated by the response and the feedback received. Continue reading at “G R Team sites” listed in the right Side of this site.

iPhone Xs, Xs Max & Xr Launch review

I am confused where to start, I am not even focusing on Apple Watch as the product is out of budget range and I’m not mostly into workouts or outdoor activities. So, coming to the iPhone launch, I was expecting something unique or at-least some new innovations which were not leaked in online, but to my surprise every announcement was predictable and analysts released all those even before the event. To be honest I felt really sleepy during the entire event and one moment they shook me up was the pricing of three iPhones, it was unbelievable. Coming to each product overview, first one was iPhone Xs 

  • Most android users’ comment was that the phone was replica of last years' iPhone X and other than new color option nothing has changed 
  • Devotees might raise question about A12 Bionic processor, for all those devotees making a note of it, the last year processor was already a beast 
  • Dual sim support to Xs was actually stunning, as I was expecting the support would be available only to lower spec phone 
  • Again, the iPhone X camera was already creating stunning images than competitors and hope it would be continued this year as well. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

12. Anxious days for my salary revision

After a year long’s hard work at my new company and ratings from my manager, I was anxiously waiting for my salary revision. During last year’s rating, I was awarded 3rd rating as I have joined this company very late and was not eligible for the salary hike. Even though I was not eligible for the previous years’ salary revisions, I got negligible few percentages hike and it didn’t impact much on my expectation. However, for this year’s salary revision process, I was awarded 1st rating and even hoped for a promotion. I knew back of my head that promotion was a long shot and it isn’t happening anytime soon. As expected promotion was not communicated, however the salary revision was delayed by a month and still there were no proper clarity on the expected hike percentage. Hope there was at least marginal hike in salary, so I could manage by personal expenses and inflation across products. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

India’s first test Match review

So, after finished watching the movie, I switched to the sports channel to check the score for the India’s first test match with England and was surprised to see some other match highlights were going on. I thought either it should be raining or India would have won the match bit early with their best batting skills. I was still hesitant to check the score in online and was hoping to see some scroll in the channel mentioning the play for delayed due to rain. My patience was getting worse every minute and had to overcome my nervousness to check the score online. The moment I opened the sports page online to check the score, I was shell shocked to see title “India’s batting collapse led to England’s victory. It was worst ever performance by the Indian batsmen and bowlers no winning the match despite holding upper hand in almost maximum number of sessions than England. I was too frustrated and didn’t even wanted to see any other cricket matches or highlights ever in the TV. My whole Saturday got ruined because of unwanted office call early in the morning, delayed lunch post washing the vessels and then finally India’s batting collapse to lose yet another test match outside home ground.
