At the onset of Diwali, Flipkart, Amazon, and Snapdeal are all set to commence their customary annual site wide sales that offer great deals and discounts on products in most categories. Flipkart’s annual Big Billion Day sale begins on October 2 and will go on till October 6, where the e-commerce giant will offer discounts, exchange offers and much more on varied range of products including smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets. The e-commerce giant has now unveiled a sneak peak on what it intends to offer to its customers ahead of the sale starting on Sunday, and some great deals are up for grabs.
As is the case with the Big Billion Day sale, there are many offers up for grabs, but the most notable ones include discounts on the Asus ZenFone 2, LeEco Le 2, LeEco Le 1s Eco, and Moto X Play. There’s a huge Rs. 10,000 discount on the Asus Zenfone 2, and the smarphone can be purchased for just Rs. 9,999 in the five-day sale period. The LeEco Le 2 will be sold for Rs. 10,499 instead of its original price of Rs. 11,999, and the LeEco Le 1s Eco gets a Rs. 2,000 discount and will be sold for Rs. 7,999.

The 16GB and 32GB Moto X Play smartphones can also be purchased at an additional discount of up to Rs. 4,500 using the Flipkart exchange offer.

Furthermore, Google Chromecast 2 will also be sold at a discounted price of Rs. 2,999, down from its original price of Rs. 3,399.

The Lenovo 10400mAh Power Bank is also up for grabs for just Rs. 799, which translates to Rs. 1,700 discount on the product. Bose headphones are also up for grabs at a 30 percent discount. There’s also a whopping Rs. 11,000 off on the Microsoft Xbox One 1TB variant, and the Honor T1 8GB tablet can be bought for just Rs. 3,999 during the sale period (actual price Rs. 6,999).
Apart from electronics, fashion and garments section will offer at least 40 percent discount on clothes, footwear, watches, sunglasses, and other accessories for men and women. Televisions from Vu and BPL Vivid start at Rs. 11,990, and come with the Flipkart exchange offer for further cut in prices.
Home electronics and appliances get discounts as well, the most notable being the Onida 6kg front-loading washing machine for Rs. 15,990. The original price of the washing machine is Rs. 22,990. The Prestige Air Fryer can also be bought during the Big billion Day sale for just Rs. 3,499 (original price at Rs. 6,995).
Its worth noting that Flipkart offers 10 percent instant discount to all SBI debit and credit card holders on all their purchases. There might be a purchase limit cap for this instant discount to apply, but there’s no clarity on that yet. We strongly recommend users to register themselves on Flipkart and save their billing and card details for smooth and quick checkout. If tradition is anything to go by, the Big Billion Day will see huge traffic leading to instant product sell-outs, payment lags, and website glitches. We do hope that Flipkart has upped its game and has a glitch-free sale week this year.
