Citibank India has tied up with Apple to offer attractive cashback offers on the Cupertino-based firm’s wireless AirPods and Apple TV products. As part of the offer, consumers can receive cashback of up to Rs.5,000 on the purchase of an Apple AirPod or Apple TV through both EMI and non-EMI transactions from January 20th to January 28th, 2018 using a Citibank credit card. However, do note that the cashback offer is not valid on Citibank Corporate cards. It should also be noted that this offer is only valid at Apple reseller stores, so you will not be receiving any cashback if you make your purchase online.

The Apple AirPods, which are priced at Rs.12,900 in India, could be yours for an effective price of Rs.7,900 after the Rs.5,000 cashback. Similarly, you will be able to get the standard Apple TV with 32GB storage at an effective price of Rs.9,100. The Apple TV 4K with 32GB storage is available for Rs.12,430, while the 64GB Apple TV can be yours for an effective price of Rs.14,480. You will receive the cashback amount of Rs.5,000 on any of the above products within 90 business days from the date of purchase. Needless to say, the cashback will only be offered on the first transaction per card.
Apple AirPods offer a one-tap setup for all your Apple devices and can connect automatically as soon as you take them out of the charging case. Powered by the Apple W1 chip, the AirPods include optical sensors and a motion accelerometer that lets them detect whenever they are in your ears. The additional accelerometer works in conjunction with Beamforming microphones to make sure your voice is heard clearly when talking to Siri. In terms of battery life, Apple claims the AirPods delivery up to 5 hours of listening time on a single charge.
