The sales and discount season that Flipkart and Amazon started about 10 days ago continues, with both online retailers announcing new deals and deals. In a way, these deals are and the deals are better than those available during Amazon Great Indian festival Sale and Flipkart Big Billion Days, but somehow they are worse. However, they are mostly the same.
This time Flipkart started the sale of Dussehra from 22 October and will run until 28 October. After October 28, the company will start the big Diwali sale, which could end up in Diwali. Amazon, meanwhile, hasn’t officially announced an end date for its Great Indian Festival Sale, and that too is likely to extend all the way to Diwali.
At the same time, Amazon has now announced a new sale called Happiness Upgrade Days where it mainly offers the same deals it has been offering for almost the last 10 days.
However, there is a big change. Other banks have now joined for immediate discounts. And HDFC Bank is out of the game. “Customers can save big with an instant 10% bank discount on Axis Bank, Citibank and ICICI Bank on credit and debit cards and EMI transactions. They can get an instant 5% discount plus reward points up to 5% with Amazon Pay’s ICICI Bank credit card, ”Amazon said in a statement.
On the Flipkart side, SBI is out of the game. Instead, in the big Diwali sale, Axis Bank card users will get an immediate 10% discount.
As for smartphones and gadgets, in most cases the new offers on Amazon India and Flipkart are the same as they have been offering in the last week or are slightly worse. For example, the iPhone 11 which was priced at Rs 47,999 during the Great Indian Festival Sale is now at Rs 49,999. While it’s possible that once Flipkart and Amazon get closer to Diwali, we could still see more successful deals.
