It is that part of the year where we see discounts and sales almost everywhere. From your favourite brands to outlets, shoppers can find the best deals. But if you're the kind of shopper who would refuse to go from one store to another, two of the biggest e-commerce giants Flipkart and Amazon are hosting sales in India next week.

Amazon announced "Amazon Prime Day" sale, which will kick off on July 16 and run for 36 hours straight. As most of you can imagine, Amazon will offer steep discounts on a wide range of products that it sells on the platform during the sale. But Amazon's chief rival Flipkart is taking on the e-commerce giant.  

Flipkart has confirmed that it will be hosting Big Shopping Days sale starting July 16, but it plans to outdo Amazon by an extended the sale for 80 hours compared to its rival's 36-hour sale. If the past sales are any indication, online shoppers will find great savings on products ranging from electronics to fashion and more.

With both sales going live at the same time, shoppers might be confused about which platform to choose. Here's a quick comparison of how Amazon and Flipkart are making its shoppers' worthwhile during their respective sales.
