I was itching to write that title.
It’s been a while since I posted — yet again due to travel, this time a planned one — and by the time I got back there were some super-awesome comments on some of the recent posts.
First up, reader Ashwin introduced me to the concept of a “Restore Clause” in a health insurance policy (read the comments on that post for details). And as with any fancy-sounding marketing verbiage there’s more to it than meets the eye. Simply put, health insurance companies explain the terms and conditions of their restore clauses in gobbledygook. You simply can’t figure out what you’re getting into.
Next up, reader Madhu introduced me to the Reliance ATM Card (read-up details on this concept here and here).
I was hooked in an instant because —
- The underlying primary mutual fund schemes have returned around 7% per annum.
- No-fee cash withdrawal at any domestic ATM. No limit on the number of free transactions.
- International cash withdrawal at Rs 69 + Service Tax. I recently paid Rs 125 + Service Tax for withdrawing cash from my Bank’s debit card. Ouch!
I like it a lot on first glance and if I like it some more I’ll give it a shot.
Quite some learning there.
Hats off to the Capital Advisor Tribe. You guys rock!
