Ladies and and Gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to present to you my very first dotcom website – GenXGenYGenZ Dotcom. It is now online and you’ll be amazed with a new experience where you won’t be bombarded with irritating random ads anymore… unless by some miracle AdSense approves my new website in the future.

This new FREE of Random Ads dotcom website is made possible by my kind readers who have purchased stuff from Groupon via my previous links provided at my GenerationsXYZ.blogspot. By them doing so, I managed to earn about RM600 in 2015 and I used most of it, i.e. USD99 or more than RM400, to sign up for a new dotcom domain with wordpress.com. However, if in 2016 nobody purchases anything from Groupon AFTER visiting my new dotcom site and CLICK ON the Groupon links I have provided, I will not get any income and therefore I would not have made enough to cover the cost to maintain the dotcom site for another year, So, please visit my http://www.GenXGenYGenZ.com and click on the Groupon links before you purchase anything as your actions will assist in maintaining this said website which is created to benefit everyone FOR FREE!

The reason I signed up for the dotcom domain with wordpress is because I have no knowledge in designing a website. But from my years of blogging, I have learned a few tricks on how to utilize html codes. And I have made good use of this limited knowledge of html codes to come up with a Static Front Page with very minimal text where you can simply click on the images to be directed to my article(s).

Once again, I thank you for your support over the past few years and please click on the link below to read my second post – GenX’s Online Profile and start on a new journey together and hopefully for many years to come…

FREE Android and Apple Apps for Fixed Deposit Promos and Top 10 Credit Cards

Last weekend I was so freaking FREE that I started to play around with a few FREE App Builders.

And I am pleased to announced that I am now a FREE App Developer, hahaha.

Please try out my FREE Apps, i.e. Fixed Deposit Promos and Malaysia Top 10 Credit Cards by following the instructions as shown in the following images:

Apple and Android Fixed Deposit App

Apple and Android Best Top 10 Credit Cards AppOf course do not expect my no budget self funded App to be top notch quality. And since I used a FREE App Builder, I have no control as to what ads are being showed or where it occurs.

However for Apple devices, the good thing is there are very minimal ads for the Apps I created using Mobincube.

And if you are thinking of building your own Apps, here is a short review of the FREE App Builders I tried out ( Mobincube versus Appypie ):

Mobincube

Pros: Easy To Use, Many Templates To Choose, FREE Plan ALLOWS APP TO BE EDITED AND UPDATED AFTER IT IS PUBLISHED, i.e. allows for New Version.

Cons: Does not create Icon for Apple Devices but you have to run the App under Safari.

Appypie

Pros: Easy To Use, Many Templates To Choose, Allows icon to be present in Apple Devices this is really good versus MobinCube).

Cons: For the FREE Plan – it DOES NOT ALLOW UPGRADES/NEW VERSION, i.e. you cannot edit the App once it is published. This is a very major set back, you cannot correct errors/mistakes.

UOB PRIVI MILES VISA – CREDIT CARD REVIEW

Recently, an iFriend of mine messaged me at Facebook to thank me for my articles and that he has managed to redeem Business Class tickets with his Maybank 2 Cards Premier.

Besides him, many of you have also thanked me for my articles over time. I do appreciate all your kind comments and truly touched whenever someone shows his/her gratitude after reading my article(s). Same goes to those who have supported me by buying stuff at Groupon via my links at my blog, thank you thank you.

Anyway, the same person who messaged me yesterday asked my opinion on the UOB PRIVI MILES VISA. I was like what the heck is UOB PRIVI Miles? So I went to UOB website and the first impression I got was – this card looks freaking fantastic. Below is what UOB advertised:

1) The BEST WAY to earn miles. No limits. On How You Earn Miles. Or UseThem.

2) Minimum Annual Income to be eligible for the card – RM60K

3) 5X UNIRinggit for every RM spent overseas, retail household, automobile services and Visa Wave Transactions.

4) Redeem up to 4 Airmiles for every RM5 spent.

5) 12X Complimentary Access to Plaza Premium Lounge.

6) Offset Annual Fee with UNIRINGGIT Earned.

So, is this UOB PRIVI Miles is as good as what UOB claimed? Well, I wasted few hours of my time reviewing the UOB PRIVI Miles card for your benefit.
