What makes BBD stand out from other sales:
The exciting difference that Flipkart Big Billion Day has with other sales like Great Indian Diwali Sale from Amazon.in and Snapdeal Unbox Sale is they have instant discount on purchases via credit or debit cards. To give you an example:
Imagine you are buying a product for ₹10000. Assume it's priced the same on all three websites. And there is a 10% instant discount on Flipkart and 15% cashback on Amazon.in. There is also 20% cashback on CITI bank on Snapdeal but it's capped.
With instant discount you would have to pay ₹9000 on Flipkart.
With cashback you would pay ₹10000 but you would get ₹1500 back after 90 days. So you can choose if you would like to wait and get more in bank or want an instant off so you have to pay lesser.
Additionally Flipkart offers a no interest EMI option which is really helpful for large purchases. If we take the same example like previous with a 12 month no interest EMI you would get the product at ₹833. So with no interest EMI option the instant discount would not be applicable and you would pay the sale price that flipkart is showing.
Also Flipkart has something rather interesting with their exchange offers. So you can exchange your old products and get brand new ones. So find all the old electronics you wished to get rid off and buy brand new ones by exchanging them and getting that much off.
