After a massive Prime Day sale last month, Amazon is all set for another major sale this month. The Great Indian Sale is making a comeback this August. The sale will start from 9 August and will run until 12 August. Amazon has tied up with State Bank of India to bundle card based cashback offers.
The Great Indian Sale in August will offer discounts and cashback offers in almost all product categories. Amazon India will offer discounts on Apple iPhone, Bose, OnePlus, Lenovo, Motorola, Mi, Sony, Samsung, Kindle, PlayStation 4, and several other top brands and their products.
If you are looking for a great deal on a big-screen TV or wearable fitness bands, the Great Indian Sale will definitely have something in store for you. Other product categories like electronics, fashion, and entertainment will also see price drops up to 80% during the sale.
Great Indian Sale in August: What To Expect
Apart from the traditional Great Indian Sale offers, this time you can expect a large number of Prime exclusive deals on top brands. This comes as a result of Amazon’s deeper push of its Prime membership to Indian customers. Prime Day sale ensured a lot of new members signed up for the yearly membership.
Prime Exclusive deals will be special Lightning Deals which means select products will be available at a discount for a limited time, for Prime members only. A few Lightning Deals will also open up around 30 minutes early for Prime members.
If you’re still on the fence, we suggest you sign up for Prime membership. At Rs.499 a year (current discounted price) it’s well worth it. It comes with access to Prime Video as well. It couldn’t get any better than this.
Top Offers Expected During Great Indian Sale
August and September are going to be two interesting months to buy an iPhone. The prices for Apple iPhone are likely to get a discount during the Great Indian Sale owing to the upcoming announcement for the new iPhones. If you’re looking to buy the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus, you may end up with a pretty good discount during the Great Indian Sale. The stocks, however, shall be really limited.
Another major brand that might see a decent discount is Bose. Don’t expect anything huge, but considering how expensive Bose products normally are, any discount would be a good discount. We spotted a few good deals on Bose headphones during the Prime Day sale.
We’re also expecting the top deals on Kindle e-readers to make a comeback. You can also expect to score a great deal on Sony PlayStation 4 gaming consoles. We’re also expecting around 40% discount on FitBit fitness trackers.
The Great Indian Sale will be a good time to upgrade to a big-screen TV and pair your purchase with a decent soundbar.
