I randomly found this website, which is basically a thread that will show you offers from all brands that you can benefit from. It’s very simple and straightforward, some offers are pretty good. Like the Smash Burger one, I ordered one American Burger and got another one for free.
Checking how fast your current internet speed is a common thing, especially for gamers or when you feel it’s been slow lately. Everyone uses speedtest.net, which works but it’s very bulky and you have to go through a few steps to get what you want. On the other hand, Netflix for some reason decided to launch a similar service.
I love how minimalistic and simplistic it is, the website (fast.com) will automatically start testing your internet speed, all you see is a big number of the current download speed. Within a minute the website will tell you how fast your download speed is.
I posted a list of pet stores in Kuwait before but this one is relatively new, surprisingly built and managed by an AUK student. The store gathers items from the physical stores in Kuwait and displays them online, according to him they have the fastest delivery service between pet stores (3 – 6 hours delivery time).
Brands they sell: Scoopfree, Four Paws, World Wise, Petstages, Nylabone, Kennel-aire, Sanicat, Petkin & Nutrapet
I’m liking this idea, we should have had something like this years ago. What the website basically does is when you search for something it will search online stores based in Kuwait and show you how much each website is selling a product, rather than you going to each website and manually searching one by one.
The websites include:
- Mr Babu
Rainymood.com is popular around the web, it basically lets you hear the sound of rain forever and for some it’s a calming sensation. I however, have another website that’s my favourite. Not only does it have rain, but thunder, waves, wind, fire, birds, ambient chatting, white noise and even crickets. Best of all you can switch on/off which ones you want and control how loud they are.
The website is called [A Soft Murmur]. The combo I’m liking right now is soft rain, a little thunder, a lot of fire and an ambient sound of what a coffee shop would sound like.
I went to their website and couldn’t believe my eyes, the NBK online website that felt outdated by 15 years got completely revamped. It’s much more appealing to the eye and for once looks like an actual website of a bank. Text is clearer, navigation got easier.
Unfortunately they still use the same security system that most people don’t like, I’ve actually had several arguments about their secuirty system with friends on whether it’s useful or not. Would be great if they could implement something like Google’s 2-way authentication method.
I looked around but couldn’t find any new features except for this one, which I think is new. It allows you to nickname every account you have, if you’re the type of person that has a ton of credit cards this can really come in handy. Makes it much easier to recognize which card is which.[Website]
I have searched long and hard for a good way to get a warranty from ordering online, which is the biggest issue with most people ordering online. They want the cheaper cost but they also want a warranty. I found a great website with a unique policy.
If your camera or phone arrives with any defects, you can go to the brand locally to fix it, and the website will pay the cost, you don’t need to ship the product back. Their warranty lasts 1 year, you can read more about their regulations [here].
How it works:
- You order your device and get it shipped
- It arrives and you notice there is a fault or defect
- You email Digital Rev with proof
- After they accept they either tell you to go to a specific local repair service or one of your choice
- You pay to get it repaired, email the repair receipt to Digital Rev and they will refund you that money
Apart from having this handy warranty policy the website offers cheaper items at clearance, weekly special and overall when compared to other websites they have one of the cheapest prices for items around the web. My next lens is probably going to be from Ditigal Rev, though I kinda hate their popular video reviews, they’re just too cheesy.
Alshaya has launched their own platform for delivery or pick up which including Pizza Express, Potbelly, Pinkberry, PF.Changs, Asha’s, Sprinkles and Garrett. The place i’d likely to order from isn’t there yet, Shake Shack. You can either order for a delivery or pickup.
The website feels like it’s a 2008 version of Talabat, the interface is old but sort of responsive to mobile. They’re planning to launch an Android and iOS version soon. Haven’t tried ordering anything yet but might post about the experience once I do.[Website]
