Apple's iPhone 6 is a favorite of tech enthusiasts, and with its overhauled design it managed to sell in huge numbers. But some shoppers were let down by the high price tag and hoped for a price drop. Although Apple refused to make such an offer, online retailers like Snapdeal, Amazon and Flipkart have taken a step forward in giving a treat to those prospective buyers. iPhone 6's 16GB variant has received a massive discount online, with its price pegged at ₹42,999.
The pleasant surprise comes shortly after the e-tailers offered iPhone 6 at ₹46,000 in March. There have been fluctuations in the price since, but this is the first time that iPhone 6 is being offered at such a low price in India.
Going by individual product listing, Amazon.in and Snapdeal are offering iPhone 6 16GB variant at ₹42,999. You can also choose any colour (silver, space grey and gold) without paying anything extra. But Flipkart has a slightly different offer, which can be of great savings for Axis bank customers. Apple iPhone 6 16GB gold variant is listed for ₹43,475, but purchasing the handset using your Axis debit or credit card will fetch you an extra 10 percent off.
The terms and conditions page explains that the maximum discount on each card is ₹2,500. This means the cost of a brand new iPhone 6 from Flipkart, using Axis Bank card, is ₹40,975. There is a slight difference of price while choosing a different colour for your iPhone on Flipkart. The space grey iPhone 6 costs ₹43,899, while the silver variant is listed for ₹44,380. The Axis Bank discount is valid on all variants, including the 64GB and 128GB models.
The retailers haven't listed any end date for the discount, but it is not known when they plan on changing the price again.
