  • Exclusive: Ahead of sale season, Flipkart's B2B arm raises $156 mn loan

After many months, Flipkart officially announced the launch of Big Billion Days offers from 20th September 2017 to 24th September 2017.

ZOPO is a brand known for offering the latest technology at the most affordable prices.

In an interview on 8 September, Amazon India chief Amit Agarwal said the company had significantly expanded its capabilities since last year's Diwali season sale. Lately, Flipkart declared the dates of its sale dubbed as Big Billion Day (September 20, 2017 to September 24, 2017) and now one more e-commerce major Amazon has declared the dates for its sale dubbed as Great Indian Festival.

Top deals in this category include over 40% off on Panasonic 43-inch Full HD TV, Sony 32-inch Bravia LED TV under Rs 23000 and LG 43-inch Full HD LED Smart TV for a little over Rs 40,990.

With reports suggesting that Amazon has been roping in big electronic companies and retail chains to cut delivery time, it is no wonder that the platform is offering up to 60% discount on white goods.

The company officially says that it will provide almost 40 percent of discount on the mobile phones like Apple, OnePlus, Samsung, Moto, Xiaomi, Panasonic and Sony.

After May this year, Amazon has come up with a yet another offer for the festive season.




Flipkart continues its tradition of Big Billion Days sale, where it offers attractive deals on a wide range of products.

Flipkart is also promoting its Unified Payments Interface (UPI) wallet, PhonePe, by giving first-time users an additional 10% cashback (capped at Rs100) on their purchases. Redmi 4 & Redmi 4A will also be available on sale for prime members.

Shop on Amazon using your HDFC Bank Debit Card or Credit Card and avail 10% Cashback up to a maximum of Rs. 4,500 per card.

Queen size bed is available at a discount of about 60%.

There will be exclusive offers on refurbished handsets from Apple, Xiaomi, Lenovo, Motorola and Samsung. Even though they're previous year flagships, these devices are more than capable enough than upcoming budget and mid-range phones.

On the exchange offer front, the company in the release mentioned that customers can now exchange their old mobiles to get discounts on not only mobile purchases but also on purchases in other categories such as Washing Machines, Refrigerators, TVs, Laptops, Tablets, ACs.
