It’s not just Amazon. Flipkart is also hosting a surprise Big Shopping Days sale from July 16. The e-commerce giant will be hosting the Big Shopping Days sale starting July 16 at 4PM. The sale will continue until July 19. With the Big Shopping Days sale, Flipkart is looking to compete with its rival, Amazon India. Amazon will be hosting Prime Day sale on the same day, on July 16 (12PM afternoon), and end on July 17 (00.00 hours).
During the Big Shopping Days sale Flipkart will be offering big discounts on products across categories, including smartphones. For the sale, Flipkart has partnered with State Bank of India (SBI) to offer an instant discount of up to 10 percent. To avail the SBI offer, customers will need to shop with their SBI credit card. There are other terms and conditions attached to the discount offer, which Flipkart is yet to reveal.
Both Flipkart and Amazon start their big sales on July 16th, where Flipkart is giving 44 hours of extra offers and discounts. The Amazon sale is offering discounts and offers on almost all products across different categories and Flipkart is not doing anything different here. But, Amazon is also adding content to its digital streaming platform Amazon prime Video for the sale. However, the sale benefits are only for the Amazon Prime members which is not the case with Flipkart. Anyone with a will to spend money can take part in the Flipkart sale. Also, Flipkart hasn’t revealed the entire terms and conditions for the sale, so we can’t say anything for sure, as of now. Amazon India also claims that this year’s Prime Day sale will be bigger than that in last year and will be on for 36-hours straight. Last year, the sale was live for 24-hours only. The e-commerce giant says that the Prime Day this year will see over 200 exclusive new product launches from top brands including Bosch, Acer, Intel, OnePlus, HP among the other. There will be discount offers on Amazon Echo devices, All New Kindle, Fire TV Stick, Kindle Oasis and Kindle Paperwhite. Flipkart is still offering more sale hours than Amazon and the Rush Hour deals from Flipkart are similar to the Prime Day Flash Sales on Amazon. The sales on the platform go live in 5 days. Stay tuned for more updates from the e-commerce giants.
