How to save the most on Flipkart and Amazon!
This is a grand time for Indian shoppers. All major ecommerce brands and even smaller ones have a range of deals lined up. Flipkart's Big Billion Days Sale started today. Amazon's Great Indian Festival starts tomorrow. The next days will see sales on Jabong, Myntra, Tata CliQ and more. Go through these tips to make the best of the offers and save the most!
SBI debit/credit cardholders have advantages on Flipkart: 10% discount up to Rs. 1,500 per transaction, thrice. First-time PhonePe users also get a 10% cashback up to Rs. 100. On Amazon, rewards are for HDFC debit/credit cardholders: 10% cashback up to Rs. 1,750 on a minimum transaction of Rs. 5,000. If you add money to Amazon Pay, you get 10% cashback up to Rs. 500.
Not many know this, but the offers aren't constant on any platform throughout the days of sale. You have to keep visiting the website again and again to know all deals. For example, Flipkart's Day 1 will bring offers on fashion, appliances and more, but Day 2 is the most-anticipated with lucrative deals on mobiles and electronics. Remember: most deals are released at midnight.
Amazon Prime users get a host of exclusive benefits: early access (for Prime members, the sale started at 12pm today, 36 hours before it opens for others); timely notifications; unlimited free one-day and two-day delivery; and more. As a Prime member, you can also access movies and series on Amazon Prime Video. At Rs. 499 a year, Amazon Prime is worth a subscription.
Use coupon websites for extra offers. Eg. CouponDunia offers various discounts across categories. Create an account on CouponDunia (you will get a Rs. 50 signup bonus), then visit Flipkart/Amazon from the website. When you make a purchase, cashback would be credited to you CouponDunia account.
Make sure you have the apps installed and have subscribed to their emails. They keep sending notifications to users on phone. Both Amazon and Flipkart offer no cost EMIs with terms and conditions. Check out the details on the websites. Tata CLiQ is running its CLiQCLOCK sale from September 20-23. Visit Jabong and Myntra to find more deals. We wish you lots of savings!
