- Flipkart Big Billion Days sale is open to all customers and not just Flipkart Plus.
- Similarly, the Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale is open to all customers and not just Prime users.
- There are a number of top phones selling with discounts in the two sales.
Both the Great Indian Festival sale at Amazon and the Big Billion Days sale at Flipkart are now open to all users, and not just the Prime or Plus members. Flipkart had started the Big Billion Days on October 15, with the first day of the sale reserved for the Flipkart Plus members. Amazon, similarly, started the Great Indian Festival sale on October 16 with the first 24 hours reserved for the Amazon Prime members. The Flipkart sale will go on till October 21, though chances are that it will be extended because Amazon hopes to run its sale for as long as one month or until Diwali.
A quick look at the deals that are available on the two e-retail sites show that both are well-matched in terms of what they are offering, though Flipkart seems to have a slight edge. Not only it has phones and gadgets at a better discount, it particularly has better fashion brands that are offering products at better prices, likely because of its strength in that area due to Myntra. For example, if you are looking for sports shoes, Flipkart has some killer deals while Amazon is lacking.
While at the same time, Amazon has the best deals on Amazon products, like Echo smart speakers and Kindles, and Amazon Basic or Solimo products. These are all exclusive to Amazon.
Coming to smartphones, Amazon is offering a great deal in the form of the iPhone 11 for a price of Rs 47,999. Flipkart, meanwhile, has a deal on the iPhone SE 2020 for Rs 26,999 and the iPhone XR for Rs 47,999. It also has the iPhone 11 Pro at Rs 79,999.
For bank partnerships, Flipkart has tied up with State Bank of India, and SBI card users are getting an additional 10 per cent discount on Flipkart deals. Amazon is working with HDFC this time, and HDFC card users are getting an extra 10 per cent discount on Amazon deals.
