Ahead of its billion-day big sale, Flipkart has opened reservations for some of the offers it will be offering in the holiday sale. The e-retailer says some of its upcoming offers can be pre-booked between 11-14 October.
To pre-book a deal, consumers will need to pay the Re 1 token amount. After the deal opens on October 15th for Flipkart Plus members or October 16th for regular users, consumers who have pre-booked an agreement will have 24 hours to make the remaining payment.
Interestingly, the bank offer to SBI cardholders will receive a 10% discount on most offers will not be applicable if a consumer pre-books a deal. Flipkart notes on its support page: “The bank offer will not be applicable to pre-booked items even if the combined value of the items are eligible for the bank offer. Bank offers cannot be beaten with this early booking offer. “
Another key point to note is that not all offers can be booked in advance. Only the offers available on the pre-booking page can be used with this method. This means that many of the successful offers are not part of the early booking offer. For example, Flipkart will sell the Galaxy S20 + for Rs 49,999 in the Big Billion Days Sale, but that deal isn’t open to pre-order.
Most of the offers open to early booking are for clothing, shoes, household and kitchen items, etc.
Both Flipkart and Amazon are preparing to kick off holiday sales. While Flipkart will run its holiday sale from October 16 to October 21, Amazon will begin the sale from October 17, and the company has not yet revealed the end date. There are reports that Amazon’s big Indian holiday sale will last a month.
