Amazon sale started in India at 12am on May 11, giving customers offers such as discounts and cashbacks on smartphones, laptops, consumer durables, and apparels, among others. The Amazon sale comes with a lot of great offers, so it will come as no surprise to anyone if a product goes out of stock within a few minutes of it going up for sale. So to make sure you make the most out of the Amazon Great Indian Sale, here are a few tips for you to follow:
Become an Amazon Prime member
In the past couple of Amazon sales, certain offers and discounts have been exclusive to Amazon Prime members, so it would make sense to sign up for the service. The company has already confirmed Prime members will get access to Amazon Great Indian Sale deals 30 minutes before non-Prime users on all three days. Becoming a member costs Rs. 499 a year, and ensures you early access to several deals on the platform, so it would make sense to using this to ensure you get the best deals.
As part of the Amazon sale, Prime users can look forward to deals such as exclusive access to Xiaomi Redmi 4A, 32 percent discount on Sony XB10 speakers, up to 40 percent off on hard drives, 60 percent off on Sennheiser headphones, up to 50 percent off on air purifiers, 35 percent or above discounts on Garmin activity trackers, and up to 35 percent off on Fitbit Charge 2.
Use the Amazon app
With mobile users as the targets, the e-commerce giant provides incentives to use its app instead of the desktop site. For example, customers who spend Rs. 500 or more on the app in the Amazon Great Indian Sale will get flat Rs. 1,000 off on hotel bookings from Yatra.
Set alerts for deals
If a deal is yet to start, you can choose the Watch This Deal option to get alerts when the sale starts. If a product you want is out of stock, you can choose to get notified when it comes back in stock.
Load up on Amazon Pay balance
Amazon Pay users who recharge their balance during the 3-day Amazon Great Indian sale stand a chance to win Rs. 1 lakh every hour. The customers need to add Rs. 500 to their Amazon Pay balance and answer a simple question to be eligible for the contest.
Save your credit/ debit card details for faster check-out
In big sales such as the Amazon Great Indian Sale, it is not uncommon for products to go out of stock by the time you reach the checkout page. To make sure you don’t lose out on the products you want, save your debit or credit details so that the checkout time is as short as possible.
Use Citibank or Bajaj Finserv cards to save more money
The Amazon Great Indian Sale will come with its own discounts and offers, but you can save a little more – on top of the original discounts – by using Citibank cards. Credit and debit cards issued by Citibank are eligible for an additional 10 percent cashback on purchases made using the desktop site, and 15 percent on shopping via the app. On the other hand, you can use the Bajaj Finserv to avail no-cost EMIs on brands such as OnePlus, Samsung, BPL, HP, Sony, and Lenovo.
So, to get the best Amazon Great Indian Sale offers and deals, make sure you download the app and sign into the Amazon app, buy the Prime membership, and save your credit/ debit card details before 12am tonight.
