  • Have a Wishlist

Planning beforehand and deciding the products you want to buy is a good idea during the shopping festivals. Having a Wishlist will definitely help you to plan your budget. It also helps you in doing some research beforehand so that you can ensure that you are getting a good deal during the sale event.

  • Look into Sellers

For marketplaces like Amazon, Snapdeal and Flipkart majority of the products are sold by third party sellers. Pay attention to the sellers you are buying from and make sure that they are active on the platform for sometime. We recommend you to go with highly rated sellers and avoid new sellers at least during the festive periods.

  • Compare prices

Amazon Great Indian sale is one of the most celebrated sale events after Flipkart’s Big Billion Days. So Amazon may not be the only one who got a better price during this time, so compare prices on various online stores including Flipkart to ensure that you are getting the best deal.

  • Payment methods

Some products/ categories of products may have different discounts if you use a certain type of payment. So use the right payment method to get the most out of the Great Indian Sale.

  • Go through the terms

The terms and conditions for Amazon Great Indian Sale may be different compared to shopping on a normal day on Amazon. The terms will be different for warranty, returns and even for EMIs. So read the terms carefully before you complete the purchase.

  • Keep your eyes open

To get the most out of the sale, keep the notifications for Amazon turned on whether it is your phone or laptop. Since, “Lightning deals” are mostly sold out within minutes, this trick will let you be up-to-date with all the deals during the sale.
