Amazon India has announced its Great Indian Festive Sale. It will kick off at 12:00am on 13 October (Tuesday) and is scheduled to run till Saturday.

Interestingly, Amazon will face stiff competition from its rival Flipkart, which was the first to announce its five-day Big Billion Days programme. Both the online sales events will start tonight and continue for the same number of days.

Unlike Flipkart's sales event, which is an app-only shopping event, consumers can access Amazon's deal both on its app as well as the web. However, people using Amazon app can enjoy special privileges like having access to the deals 15 minutes before they hit the website and 15% additional cashback for HDFC card users.

What to expect from Amazon's Great Indian Festive Sale:

The online retailer is expected to offer a wide range of items, including apparels and smartphones. It has announced that one lucky shopper, who has purchased an item that values over Rs 299, will win 1kg of gold everyday till the shopping event lasts.

One of the gadgets that Amazon will offer during the sales is OnePlus 2, which will be available from 8am onwards from Tuesday. The online retailer has announced an additional cashback of Rs 1,500 on HDFC bank debit and credit card (valid on EMI too).

The OnePlus 2, which is priced at Rs 22,999 for 16 GB and Rs 24,999 for 64 GB, sports a 5.5-inch full HD LCD screen with 920x1080 pixels (401 ppi pixel density). Under the hoods, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 series processor, Android 5.1 Lollipop, 16 GB internal memory and 3 GB RAM, and 64 GB and 4 GB RAM (no microSD card slot), 13 MP main camera, 5 MP front snapper, and a 3,300 mAh battery.
