Apple launched its latest iPhone 7 series in India and other parts of the world, but the premium price tag may not be suited for many. For such shoppers, there is an alternative to stay a part of Apple's ecosystem.
Apple's 2014 flagship, the iPhone 6, has received a generous price cut in India, specifically on Flipkart – one of the largest e-commerce platforms in the country. With the latest discount on the iPhone 6, the 16GB variant costs as low as Rs 33,990 instead of Rs 36,990. But that's just the straight-cut discount and additional cash back and exchange offers make the deal sweeter.
Buyers can avail up to Rs 22,000 exchange bonus, get 5 percent off on Axis Bank Buzz credit cards or Rs 3,000 flat cashback on Citi back credit cards. To make it convenient for buyers, Flipkart is offering no cost EMIs on iPhone 6 purchases.
Comparatively, Amazon India is offering the 16GB variant of iPhone 6 at Rs 34,999. The retailer is also giving 50 percent assured buyback within 6 months of purchase and 40 percent assured buyback within 15 months of purchase. So if you are planning to upgrade your smartphone temporarily, Amazon.in gets you a sweet deal.
On Snapdeal, the iPhone 6 16GB costs Rs 36,990 and as far as the offers go, there is a flat Rs 500 instant discount on all credit and debit cards. Shoppers can also exchange their old devices and get up to Rs 20,000 off on the iPhone 6 purchase.
The limited period offer is valid only on the 16GB variant of the iPhone 6, while the 64GB and 128GB are selling at their regular prices. This may not be the biggest price cuts in the recent days, but it is certainly worth something if buyers are serious about buying the iPhone 6.
Apple iPhone 6s series witnessed the biggest price cut last month, saving buyers up to Rs 22,000 in wake of the iPhone 7 launch. The 128GB variant of the iPhone 6s was brought down from Rs 82,000 to Rs 60,000 and the high-end iPhone 6s Plus, which was priced at Rs 92,000, was shot down to Rs 70,000.
