With the new iPhone 12 line-up going on sale from 30th October in India, consumers were waiting for discount and cashback offers that usually accompany the launch of a new iPhone in the country. We have seen in the past that Apple’s offline retailers have cashback offers when you buy an iPhone using Credit or Debit Cards of certain banks and while there was no such announcement right after the launch of the iPhone 12 series, we have now got a confirmation that there will be cashback offers for purchasing the new iPhone 12 as well as older iPhone devices from offline retailers using an HDFC Bank Credit/Debit Card.
As you can see in the image, the offer is applicable for a host of devices including the new iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Along with cashback offers, buyers also have the option to choose no-cost EMI or financing and by partnering with Cashify, retailers are also providing extra buy-back value for older devices.
Let’s go over all the cashback offers for the recent iPhone 12 devices and also older models like the iPhone 11 and XR.
iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max Cashback Offers
The most affordable iPhone this time from Apple is the iPhone 12 Mini which will be available for a retail price of Rs. 69,900. Using an HDFC Bank Credit Card, buyers will be eligible for a cashback of Rs. 6,000 bringing down the effective cost to Rs. 63,900. If you have an HDFC Bank Debit Card, you will only get a cashback of Rs. 1,500. Similarly, the iPhone 12 with a price of Rs. 79,900 will also be eligible for the same Rs. 6,000 cashback with an HDFC bank Credit Card bringing the effective cost down to Rs. 73,990.
The iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max which are priced at Rs. 1,19,900 and Rs. 1,39,900 will be eligible for Rs. 5,000 cashback using an HDFC Bank Credit Card. It is funny to see that the cheaper iPhone 12 and 12 Mini have higher cashback values than the more premium 12 Pro series which clearly indicates that Apple is trying to push the more affordable variants in India.
Not just the new iPhone 12 series, but even the iPhone 11 will be eligible for a cashback of Rs. 5,000 using an HDFC Bank Credit Card and the iPhone XR and the new iPhone SE will get Rs. 4,000 cashback. If you don’t have a Credit Card from HDFC Bank and only have a Debit Card, the cashback across all devices is capped at Rs. 1,500.
If you are not interested to buy a new iPhone, MacBook computer, and even iPad devices are eligible for cashback using HDFC Bank Credit Cards and the details about the same can be seen in the image above.
Do note that these offers are applicable only at Apple authorized offline retailers at the moment and not in Apple’s official online store that launched recently in the country. The new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro can be pre-ordered in these offline stores starting October 23 and will be available to purchase starting October 30. The iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be available for pre-order on November 6 and will go on sale starting November 13.
Note: The same HDFC bank offer is also applicable on other Apple products like iPads and MacBooks.
