It's raining deals. The Amazon Great Indian Sale is not yet over, and the Flipkart Freedom Sale has already started with offers across all major categories. The sale is definitely worth checking out if you're in the market for a smartphone, big-screen LED TV, smartwatch, tablet, or other electronics.
Make sure you bundle your purchases with HDFC Bank credit cards to get an additional 10% off at checkout (capped at Rs. 1500 on a minimum transaction of Rs. 4999). Also, with each purchase make sure you compare prices on Amazon before making a decision since it's their last day of the Great Indian Sale, and they might match prices.

(Update: Xiaomi has clarified the Redmi 3S and Redmi 3S Prime won't be back in stock before August 17)
