Pro tips for Flipkart Big Shopping Days

Lot of us wait for the Big Billion Day for many months to get our hands on our favourite gadget or phone. However, some of the most wanted items may go out of stock even before we could reach checkout. We are enlisting 7 ultimate tips you should keep in mind while ordering items during the Big Billion day sale offers.

Keep things ready beforehand

Most of us have a FlipKart  account, however if you are new to FlipKart, create your account. If  you are using the app to shop, make sure that you have the latest version of the app installed. Also, if you have a poor internet connection we recommend to use the app, as it is optimised to use less data. Once your account is set up, add your address and ensure that FlipKart will deliver to that address. Sometimes FlipKart doesn’t deliver to certain addresses. This is applicable to how you pay as well. Add the payment details beforehand to ensure smoother and easier checkout. After all, you don’t want to make a mistake or slow down to type your 16-digit card number when the sale is on!

Watch the products closely

Creating a Wishlist to watch the products you want to buy is a great idea. If you are not seeing a lot of price difference for items that you want to buy, it is a good idea to wait to see if the price drops. By the end of the Big Billion day sale period, prices dropped for many products that were not massively discounted during the initial phases of sales.

Do your research and be ready

Finalise the product you want to buy before the sale starts. Do your research about the brands and the product you want to buy. Read customer reviews and ensure you are buying the right product. Doing the research while the sale is on will jeopardise your chances of getting the product you really want to buy.

Pay attention to sellers

When it comes to marketplaces like FlipKart and Amazon, most people don’t realise that although we buy from these stores, the products are being sold by the third party sellers. Pay attention to this carefully as some of the sellers may not sell regularly and will not be around after the Big Billion day sales. In such cases, you may not get any after sale support for products bought from such sellers. We recommend you to buy from highly rated sellers both in terms of ratings and the no. of ratings. Avoid new sellers during the Big Billion day sales as it may not always turn out to be a positive experience.

Always compare prices

Flipkart’s Big Billion day sale is one of the most discounted sale events in India. However, Flipkart may not be the only store to sell products cheaply during this time of the year. Amazon’s Great India sale also features great savings. So, do compare the prices between stores to make sure that you are getting the best deal.

Payment Methods

You can get more discounts depending on the payment option you choose. To the extent possible, avoid the COD option during the Big Billion Dollar Sale to enjoy the extra discounts. You can find all available offers for various payment methods in the Payment section below.

Go through the terms

The terms and conditions for Big Billion Days are different compared to normal shopping on Flipkart. This includes replacement of the items instead of returning it and many other terms. So read carefully before you buy to avoid any disappointment later.
