Kotak Mahindra Bank on Wednesday announced that its VISA debit and credit cardholders can now make payments via the Google Pay mobile app. Using a process called tokenisation that hides sensitive card information, Kotak customers can now link their Kotak debit and/or credit card to Google Pay and then seamlessly and securely digitally transact using their mobile phones across different payment platforms.
“Not only is this process highly secure, but also very convenient as cardholders now do not need to enter their card information for every transaction, transforming the end-user experience,” Kotak Mahindra Bank said.
“Under this value proposition, Kotak customers can now use their Kotak VISA debit and/or credit cards to make payments virtually via Google Pay. Put simply, sensitive card information such as the card number, expiry date, CVV etc. is replaced with a token, and this token gets used for processing payments
Residents of a Tennessee town are on edge after Ku Klux Klan propaganda was found scattered in the yards of homes with political signs expressing support for Joe Biden.
“I was really startled by it and also kind of scared,” Shelbyville resident Breana Green told WPLN News of the moment she noticed a neighbor’s yard littered with 20 “business cards” purporting to be from the white supremacist hate group.
The cards described a “social visit” from the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and warned, “don’t make the next visit a business call.”
Green said her neighbor’s Biden-Harris yard sign was also destroyed and appeared to have been run over, WSMV reported.
”It’s scary knowing that just supporting a presidential candidate can incite this kind of vandalism,” she told the news station.
Another resident reported that the same cards were left behind after someone swiped a Biden-Harris sign from a
If you want to earn a lot of rewards quickly, these credit cards will do the trick.
Although credit cards offer all kinds of features, there’s none more exciting than the sign-up bonus. These bonuses are designed to attract new cardholders, so they’re where credit card companies break out the big guns. The best sign-up bonuses can be worth well over $500, and some even crack the $1,000 mark.
It’s natural to want as many bonus rewards as possible, but credit card offers change often. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the credit cards with the biggest sign-up bonuses right now, ranked in order of value.
Note that certain types of credit card points are more valuable than others. That’s why you might find cards with slightly fewer, but more valuable points ranked higher than cards with less valuable points.
Ku Klux Klan business cards describing a “social visit” from the hate group — and warning that the next one would be a “business call” — are appearing in the yards of Joe Biden supporters in Tennessee.
Shelbyville resident Breana Green told local outlet WSMV-TV that her friend’s home was targeted.
“We noticed that there was litter in the yard,” Green told the outlet. “I started to pick up the litter and noticed these business cards.”
About 20 Ku Klux Klan business cards bearing the threatening message were strewn across the yard, she said.
It appeared that whoever left the cards was provoked by the Biden-Harris sign in the yard, Green said.
“There [were] also tire marks in the yard which indicated the sign had been [run] over,” she told the outlet.
“I was really startled by it and also kind of scared,” Green told WPLN-FM, another local station.
With the pandemic far from being over, the need to evaluate our finances has become all the more important now. The widespread unemployment that the pandemic has brought in its wake has many of us struggling to transition from a double-income household to a single-income one.
