The Republic Day special sales are set to begin this Sunday, and Flipkart and Amazon have already put up various deals to attract buyers. While Flipkart’s Republic Day sale runs from January 20 to January 22, Amazon gives buyers one more day of fun with its Great Indian sale running from January 20 to January 23. This is a great time to buy mobile phones and other electronic devices at discounted pricing, as the new rules set in place by the government for all e-commerce trade will make such deep discounts impossible soon.
In this post, you can glance through the best deals on mobile phones at both Amazon and Flipkart, where a direct discount on the selling price is given, as opposed to other deals where indirect benefits of cashback or exchange bonuses are doled out. Keep in mind that the details of both of these sales are presently showing up only on the mobile apps of these platforms.
