Amazon Summer Sale has kicked off to rival the Flipkart Big Shopping Days, with offers on mobile phones, LED TVs, laptops, gaming consoles, and more. The Amazon sale will run from May 13 to May 16 and will feature more than 40,000 deals, according to the company. Just like the Flipkart sale, Amazon is also offering bundled exchange offers and no-cost EMI options. The e-commerce giant has tied up with ICICI Bank to offer 10 percent cashback (maximum Rs. 1,500) to its credit and debit card users, and instant discount on some products as well. Amazon Pay users will also get 10 percent cashback (maximum Rs. 300) during the sale.
We have handpicked the best deals in tech from the first day of the Amazon sale. We will continue to update this list regularly during the day so make sure you keep coming back to get the best of the Amazon sale today.
Before we get to the deals, here are some simple useful tips that can help you save more money and make better buying decisions:
- If you haven't already, get an Amazon Prime membership. It comes with a lot of benefits, the biggest of them all being free fast shipping with no minimums. Prime members get access to exclusive deals during these sale events.
- Since Flipkart is also running its Big Shopping Days sale, make sure you cross check prices on both sites before buying.
- A lot of deals will be available in the Lightning Deals format. These deals are available only for a limited period and have a small amount of stock. To make sure you're able to grab these, keep money loaded in your Amazon Pay balance, so you don’t need to fiddle with OTPs.
- Use bundled exchange offers and ICICI Bank instant discount whenever possible.
