Gear up for the online Shopping sale on Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal

Shopping a few years back used to be a more planned event, especially while buying consumer electronics. Buying a smart phone or a refrigerator was something big and often a lot of thought and planning went into it. I remember getting a new hotwheels car every time my results were out. Slowly and steadily the cars turned into video games and mobile phones. I’m pretty sure all of you reading this would have also gone through this phase. However with the advent of online shopping in India, things have changed drastically. We no more wait for an event / festival, rather we wait for online Shopping sale to kick off. Because who doesn’t love discounts and freebies !

Unless you are living under a rock, you should be aware of the huge online shopping sales lined up for you. DuringΒ Navratra, most of the e-commerce giants will be coming up with online shopping sale to lure customers. Flipkart recently announced the dates for their Big Billion Day Sale that would commence on 2nd October and go on to 6th October.

Snapdeal too is looking to grab a slice of the online shopping fever as it has also plans to hold sales first time after rebranding. So I’m pretty sure, that it’s going to be a tough choice to make during the online shopping sale on Flipkart, Amazon or Snapdeal as each one of them would have something different.

Tips for Shopping and Saving Online

  • Make a list of products that you are looking for, because you don’t want to buy anything and everything that is available on sale. So it’s better to have a list of items and target them specifically during sales.

  • Prefer to use your credit / debit card as these e-commerce sites usually have discounts when you pre-pay for your orders. Many sites will have tie-ups with specific banks, but that doesn’t mean you need to have cards from all of them ! If anyone in your family has a card of particular bank make use of it and save more.

  • Look for Wallet Payment options of the sites. Snapdeal specially after acquiring Freecharge should have special promos and discounts when paid for orders through Freecharge Wallet. So load your Wallets and keep ’em ready !

  • Almost all the shopping portals will have special offers / preview sales exclusively for mobile apps. So if you haven’t already installed their apps, this is the right time to to download and install their apps and save big during the online shopping sale. Install the Flipkart Mobile App from below.

  • Most importantly, look for products that are sold by genuine sellers. Look for the Flipkart Assured Logo on Flipkart, Amazon Fulfilled on Amazon and Snapdeal Plus on Snapdeal. There will be many sellers selling the same product, but make sure to buy from these sellers as it will minimize the chances of a counterfeit product being received. If your product doesn’t have any of these sellers, then go for the seller with the highest review.

  • Pro Tip: If shopping on the website, be sure to activate incognito browsing mode and clear the cache / cookies before opening the website. People have reported that the prices vary sometimes as the sites have cookies that track your inclination towards a specific product.
