Amazon Great Indian Festival sale is back with deals on popular mobiles like Realme 1, Vivo V9 Pro, OnePlus 6, and many other phones and other products. The latest Amazon sale — which will run from October 24 to October 28 — will include discounts and limited-period offers on hundreds of other products as well. This time round, Amazon has tied up with ICICI Bank and Citibank to offer bundled payment offers. The sale is expected to revive some of the offers we saw during the last Great Indian Festival sale earlier this month. Amazon will be offering no-cost EMI options, bundled exchange offers, and free screen replacement on all smartphones sold during the sale. Meanwhile, Flipkart is also running its second festive season sale titled Festive Dhamaka Days sale.
ICICI Bank credit and debit card users can avail 10 percent instant discount while Citibank credit card users will be eligible for a 10 percent cashback. Amazon Pay users can get 10 percent cashback (up to Rs. 200) on loading money into their wallet, valid only for today. Amazon will also offer select products at a discount for its Prime members only.
We picked out some of the best offers available on the first day of Amazon Great Indian Festival sale so far:
Vivo V9 Pro
The Vivo V9 Pro is currently down to Rs. 17,990 (MRP Rs. 19,990) as part of Amazon sale right now. You can use the bundled exchange offer to get another maximum instant discount worth Rs. 16,191. The Vivo V9 Pro features a 6.3-inch FHD+ FullView display with a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. The phone comes with a dual camera setup at the rear and is powered by the Snapdragon 660AIE SoC, supported by 6GB of RAM. ICICI Bank and Citibank card users can avail 10 percent instant discount.
Price: Rs. 17, 990 (MRP Rs. 19,990)
OnePlus 6 (8GB, 128GB)
The OnePlus 6 (8GB, 128GB) is down to Rs. 34,999 (MRP Rs. 39,999) on Amazon Great Indian Festival sale. In case you missed out this deal during the last sale, here's another opportunity. Even though the OnePlus 6T is just around the corner, the OnePlus 6 is still a decent option at this price point. To make the deal even sweeter, make sure you use the bundled exchange and payment offers. The OnePlus 6 features a 6.28-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display and is powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC, supported by 8GB of RAM.
Price: Rs. 34,999 (MRP Rs. 39,999)
Realme 1 (4GB, 64GB)
The Realme 1 (4GB, 64GB) is available with a number of bundled offers as part of the Amazon sale right now. Although the phone is available at Rs. 9,990 (MRP Rs. 12,990), you can use the bundled exchange and payment offers to further lower the effective price. Amazon is also offering a free one-time screen replacement on all phones sold during the sale. The Realme 1 features a 6-inch full-HD display and is powered by the MediaTek P60 processor, supported by 4GB of RAM. The phone comes with a 13-megapixel primary camera at the rear and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. In our Realme 1 review we concluded that the phone offers a great performance and a good battery life but its average cameras and the lack of a fingerprint sensor are a drawback.
Apple iPhone X 64GB
The iPhone X 64GB is available at Rs. 74,999 (MRP Rs. 95,390) on Amazon Great Indian Festival sale. The phone was being sold at Rs. 69,999 during the last festive season sale on Amazon India, but it sold out pretty quickly. The bundled exchange price comes with a maximum instant discount value of Rs. 16,854. You can also avail no-cost EMI options on your purchase. Amazon is also offering a free one-time screen replacement on all smartphones sold during the Great Indian Festival sale. The iPhone X features a 5.8-inch display and is powered by Apple's A11 Bionic chip. If you're not too keen on spending a lot of money on this year's slightly expensive iPhone models, the iPhone X is still a decent buy at this price.
Price: Rs. 74,999 (MRP Rs. 95,390)
