A thing to note with a lot of the deals is that the prices are listed taking into account Exchange, Cashback, and No Cost EMI. So, you might need to look out for the details and go accordingly with your order.
Here are a few helpful points to help you make an easy buy:
No Cost EMI
Products that provide this offer essentially allow you to buy the product on EMI with zero down payment and zero interest on the cost of the product. That way, the price of the product would be the same as if you were to buy it without the EMI.
Pretty much self-explanatory. If a product is eligible for this offer, you can choose the deal and provide the details for the smartphone you need to exchange. Following which, the exchange price would be provided, and in case you aren’t satisfied with this price, you can opt out of it. An important thing to note here is that exchange offers during these special sales are usually better than other days.
Products that are eligible for cashback provide you with a certain percentage of cash back. This price is usually credited to your site’s wallet and can be redeemed on your next purchase. On Flipkart, SBI card holders get 10% instant discount, while on Amazon, HDFC bank card users will get 10% instant discount.
