Tech giant Apple, announced the launch of Red variant of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last month. Now from last week, pre-orders went live in India. More excitedly, Amazon India and Flipkart brought the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus red 128 GB variant with a flat discount of Rs.4,000! They are priced at Rs.66,000 and Rs.78,000 respectively. Although, these are said to be just limited period promotional offers.
Initially, iPhone 7 red 128GB variant was priced at Rs.70,000 while iPhone 7 plus red 128GB variant was priced at Rs.82,000. But due to promotion, these two variants received a limited time discount offer. Additionally, there is also a discount offer available on Amazon India website. The exchange amount is up to Rs.8,550 depending on the device being exchanged. The problem is that one person can opt for only one offer, either the discount or the exchange offer. People can’t avail both the offers at the same time. This might act as a setback for sale on the Amazon India website.
Flipkart is also offering an exchange offer that can be as high as Rs.16,000. As a bonus offer, one can also avail the discount offer with it. Quite amazing! Although the amount of discount will depend on the device that will be exchanged. Still, the option to get both the offers is a great move from Flipkart.
Amazon India initially declared that they would start selling those two variants from Friday. And the offer would be available only on the initial day. The 256GB variants are also available at their original prices. The prices are Rs.80,000 and Rs.92,000 respectively. Although, these aren’t mentioned on the official website.
The previous month, apart from declaring the red variants of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple also announced the iPhone SE with heavily increased storage. Apple didn’t end the surprises with it; they also declared a brand new iPad with improved display and the all new A9 chipset. Apple is all set to give quite a competition to all its rivals. Amazon India and Flipkart was known as the top two online shopping websites of India are giving huge discounts to bump up their reputation.
