Getting the American Express Kingfisher First credit card

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Just returned to Pune after a great time at Goa, and found a thick envelope from American Express waiting for me. Opening it presented an invite from them offering a “pre-approved” membership of the American Express Kingfisher First Credit Card, which is basically a Platinum card. This was actually a bit of a surprise, considering I was considering returning both my existing American Express credit card as well as the American Express charge card.

Reason: These are the only cards I have where an annual fee is levied, and though I didn’t mind it initially, it is an issue now, especially when all other cards are free, regardless of whether they are Gold, Platinum, Titanium etc!

Can Indians trade on NASDAQ?

The answer is Yes. Close on the heels of the RBI upping the annual limit for overseas remittances for individual investors to $200,000, ICICI Bank’s online trading arm, icicidirect.com, has opened the gates for Indians to invest in stocks of premier US companies that are listed on the NYSE, American Stock Exchange, and the NASDAQ.
