Earn up to 25 percent cash back on Amazon



Earn up to 25 percent cash back on Amazon

The Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card has a few notable perks that you’ve probably heard of. The card has no annual fee, but does offer generous category bonuses on purchases both on Amazon and off-site. This rewards credit card even offers a $100 Amazon gift card upon approval (limited offer until November 30, 2021 – $200 for Prime approved members and $100 for non-Prime approved members). But there’s a little-known benefit that could be more valuable than all of these features combined: up to 25 percent cash back on select Amazon purchases.

Whether you’re a frequent Amazon shopper or mainly use the site during the holiday season, this card advantage can lead to significant savings.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card discount up to 25 percent on select purchases, from what types of products qualify for this discount to how exactly it’s applied.

Which items are eligible for up to 25% cashback?

Select items listed on the promotion page qualify for up to 25 percent cashback. These include office supplies, toys, kitchen appliances and electronics. The electronics category can be particularly valuable, with discounts often offered on Pixel phones, select laptops, tablets, and more. In the kitchen product category, you can enjoy discounts on Breville espresso machines, Vitamix blenders and other essential household appliances.

Given the cost of some of these products, the discount of up to 25 percent can translate into significant savings. Plus, many of these products are already on sale, making the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature bonus even more appealing.

Please note that to qualify for this discount, the item you purchase must be sold and shipped by Amazon and paid for with an eligible card. The bonus cashback reward will be credited to your account within a week and can be used within one to two billing cycles.

Is the discount always up to 25% cashback on selected purchases?

The normal Prime card bonus is 10 percent. However, at various times, the discount can reach more than 25 percent for a limited time. The timing often coincides with the Christmas shopping season. Because Amazon is a hot spot for deals, this offer creates an additional incentive for Prime members to get an Amazon Prime Rewards visa and for existing cardholders to do their Christmas shopping on Amazon.

Is this on top of the 5% cashback on Amazon?

The cashback does not stack. The higher cash back rate includes the 5 percent cash back you would normally earn on Amazon purchases with the Prime card. As such, you will not earn any extra cash back above the 25 percent maximum.

Who is Eligible for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card?

To qualify for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, you must first and foremost have an Amazon Prime membership, which costs $119 per year. In addition, you will need a good credit score ranging from 670 to 850. It is important to note that banks consider several factors when assessing credit card applications. Even if your credit score falls within the above range, it is not a guarantee that you will be approved.

If your credit score isn’t in this range, be sure to read our tips on how to improve your credit score before applying for this card.

What other Amazon cards are eligible for up to 25% cashback on certain items?

Three Amazon credit cards qualify for up to 25 percent cash back on select items: the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, Amazon Prime Store Card, and Amazon Prime Secured Card. All three cards are open to Amazon Prime members and carry no annual fee.

Outside of this promotion, you’ll earn 5 percent cash back on Amazon purchases with the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa and Amazon Prime Store Card. The Amazon Prime Secured Card earns 2 percent cash back on Amazon purchases.

Meanwhile, the Amazon Prime Rewards visa also offers 5 percent cash back at both Amazon and Whole Foods, along with 2 percent back at restaurants, gas stations and drug stores. All other purchases earn 1 percent cash back, making this the best of the three card options if you want to earn rewards outside of Amazon.

it comes down to

The Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card bonus of up to 25 percent on select items is a great offer, especially during the holiday shopping season. The card has no annual fee and offers generous category bonuses outside of this limited-time offer. If you’re already a Prime member and do a lot of shopping on Amazon, this card is a good choice because of its 5 percent cash back on Amazon purchases. The extra cash-back potential for a range of items is just the icing on the cake for those who know they’ll be clicking “Buy Now” more than a few times during the holiday season and beyond.


Restaurant X opens in Port Washington




Restaurant X opens in Port Washington

The letter X can stand for many things. For Port Washington’s Restaurant X, which quietly opened its doors in late October, it symbolizes an entire philosophy aimed at bending the rules of what it means to both eat and run a restaurant.

“We have a small menu that’s always changing, and there’s not a lot of rigidity, hence the ‘X’,” said Gabriel Moroianu, a partner. “It’s unobtrusive – anything goes.”

For the first few weeks of Restaurant X’s existence, there wasn’t even a sign over the door—just a row of misted-up windows on Main Street, beyond which diners would find a plush, gray-on-gray dining room. Each banquet comes with a sealed gray envelope, and inside it a multi-course tasting menu that changes every two weeks. Charged with that constant reinvention is Chef Tomo Kabayashi, Chef de cuisine Cesar Aguilar and a rotating roster of visiting chefs (Chef Xs) which will start in January.

“We saw Chef Tomo as our culinary anchor for this project,” says Moroianu. “Chefs Tomo and Cesar have carte blanche with creativity, to put their best foot forward and use their brains to create something unique.”

Originally from the Japanese prefecture of Yamaguchi, Kobayashi is a familiar face on the local gastronomic circuit, including a stint as head chef of Toku Modern Asian in Manhasset.

Kobayashi and Aguilar have known each other for years, and it was in Toku where most of the partners met; next to Moroianu they are Buck Canon, Calvin Lau and Juan De La Cruz. (Robert S. Heicklen, a real estate agent, is also a partner). Together, they used their collective experience to reverse engineer restaurant life and create an adventurous, ever-changing place where stress and toxicity are minimized.

“We’ve worked in chaos for so many years, so we wanted to create calm,” says Canon, a former chef who doubles as a bartender, serving custom-made mixed drinks behind the dramatic, illuminated marble bar.

Each two-week era is themed, and diners are encouraged to keep their menus closed so they’ll be surprised by every twist on the nine-course tasting, which costs $160 per person, or $215 with wine pairing. There is a parallel vegetarian menu for $120 per person, $175 with wine pairing.

Restaurant X’s opening menu was French-Asian themed. The small plates feature Berkshire pork “char siu porchetta” in a plum-mustard-ginger glaze; a fillet of madai (Japanese sea bream) dramatically served in clear parchment (en papillote) cut open by a server and topped with tomato shiso fondue; and a charred wagyu beef cheek with a clear yuzu koshou gravy. The vegetarian menu featured dishes such as roasted maitake mushrooms with potato galette, shiso butter and truffle puree.

Pastry chef Joemi Reyes, once the pastry chef of Jericho’s One North, makes layered, silent show-stopping desserts such as coconut panna cotta with azuki bean gelée and spiced mango candy, accented with dianthus blossoms.

Moroianu, a sommelier, creates the wine pairings for each menu. “Pairing wine with each course brings out nuance,” he said.

A shorter four-course tasting menu is available at the bar, for $80, and already seems to be attracting a following; many of the chef’s tasting dishes are available as small a la carte plates, from $10 to $24.

In December, Restaurant X will debut a wild-game themed menu; in January, they welcome their first guest chef: Christian Delouvrier, the once-Michelin-starred chef of the late, great Lespinasse in New York City.

Restaurant X is open Tuesday through Friday for lunch and dinner and Saturday and Sunday for brunch and dinner at 170 Main St., Port Washington, 516-918-9446.

Supreme Court issues notice on OMR sheet manipulation plea, discrepancy in final results




NEET-UG 2021 : Supreme Court Issues Notice On Plea Alleging Rigging Of OMR Sheets, Discrepancy In Final Results

The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice in a written petition favored by 6 NEET-UG candidates alleging that their OMR sheets were tampered with after the publication of the response keys by the National Testing Agency.

The petitioners allege widespread discrepancies in NTA’s scoring process and dispute their grades and ranks achieved in the test conducted by the National Testing Agency on September 12, 2021.

The case was brought to court Judges DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna.

It has been argued that there was a huge discrepancy between the figures calculated by the petitioners based on the answer keys published by the NTA and the final figures set by the NTA on 1 November 2021. One of the submitters claims that his score based on the answer key was 584, but the final result was 164. According to another submitter, his score based on the answer key was 675, but the final result was 52 points. Another submitter’s final score was zero, although his guess was 545 points according to the answer key.

“It appears that there has been massive manipulation in the screening of the OMR sheet shortly after the publication of the answer keys and the consequent uploading of the OMR sheet for self-assessment and before the actual declaration of the result and scorecard on the NTA website, which has led to a blatant discrepancy in the figures obtained by the petitioners”, is in the petition.

Referring to the comparative tabulation of numbers, the petitioners have argued that it is “clearly apparent” that there is a huge margin of error in their scores.

It has further been claimed that something is completely wrong on the part of the NTA and that it should be addressed by opening an investigation against the authority.

The petitioners have referred in their petition to the news for the leak of the questionnaire and criminal conspiracy to sabotage the fair examination process for which several FIRs were registered in various places in India.

The sum and content of the initial research in these FIRs had demonstrated the rampant use of unscrupulous means and unfair practices to manipulate the results in favor of the wealthy and unmerited candidates, the petitioners said.

In light of this background, the petition stated that,

“There are malpractice and corrupt practices occurring at a level that the innocent, deserving and deserving applicants cannot imagine, which has resulted in arbitrariness and rejection of deserving candidates and as such violates their rights under Article 14 of the Constitution of India.”

The case will then be heard on December 13, 2021.

Senior lawyer Manoj Swarup with Rajan Kumar Singh (AOR) and Rakesh kumar Singh Advocate appeared before the applicants

The petition is submitted through Lawyer on Record Ranjan Kumar Singh.

Case : WP(C) 1286/2020
