iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus went on sale in India on September 29, and there were several offers prior to the launch as well as during the Amazon and Flipkart sales the week after. Now, Paytm and Yes Bank have joined hands to unveil cashback offers, which are valid from Tuesday, October 10 to Thursday, October 12. Users will be able to avail up to Rs. 15,000 in cashback on the Paytm wallet, making it quite a lucrative deal.
The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus cashback offer is valid only on the Paytm website or app. Yes Bank credit card customers who buy either of the smartphones from Paytm website or app will get Rs. 6,000 cashback in addition to the Rs. 9,000 cashback that Paytm is offering. Totalling Rs. 15,000, the Rs. 6,000 cashback will be credited back to the Paytm wallet on or before November 20, while the Rs. 9,000 cashback will be credited within 24 hours of the product getting shipped.
The Rs. 9,000 cashback offer on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will apply if users utilise a means of payment different from Yes Bank credit cards. They will not be eligible for the Rs. 6,000 cashback offer, which is meant only for Yes Bank credit card users buying the smartphones from the Paytm website or app. Paytm notes that the offer is valid only until stocks last. To give users some perspective of what they will be paying, the iPhone 8 price in India is Rs. 64,000 for the 64GB variant and Rs. 77,000 for the one with 256GB storage. iPhone 8 Plus 64GB and 256GB storage options are priced at Rs. 73,000 and Rs. 86,000, respectively.
We've reviewed the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and found that though many have argued that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus feel like 'S' upgrades, our experience shows that in many ways they offer more improvements than the jump from the iPhone 6s to iPhone 7 cycle.
