Having tasted tremendous success with OnePlus 6T launch, the company for the first time is offering the flagship device with lucrative buyback value guarantee in India.

OnePlus has announced that the OnePlus 6T buyers will get assured cashback of a maximum of 70% of purchase price on an upgrade to a future OnePlus flagship. If you intend to sell it within three to 12 months, you are entitled to get a minimum of 40% of the purchase value of the device.

That's not all, prospective OnePlus 6T buyers will get Rs1,500 cashback, Rs 2,000 additional off on exchange for the old device and up to 6 months of no-cost EMI starting January 19. Amazon is offering a total of up to Rs 12,700 discount via exchange deal.

Considering the ongoing Flipkart Republic Day sale and Amazon's Great Indian sale, this is by far the best deal on a flagship phone. Consumers who are in the market to buy a flagship phone and yet doesn't cost a bomb—OnePlus 6T—is the best you can get.

OnePlus Upgrade Programme for OnePlus 6T buyers:

  • 70% of the purchase value of their device between 3 and 5 months from the date of purchase
  • 55% of the purchase value of their device between 6 and 8 months from the date of purchase
  • 40% of the purchase value of their device between 9 and 12 months from the date of purchase

The OnePlus Assured Upgrade can be availed on Amazon.in and OnePlus Experience and Authorized stores across the country during the Republic Day sale. (19th January to 27th January)

Also, consider the fact the OnePlus is planning to launch an all-new OnePlus 7 in about three to four months, so you can buy that one for 50%-40% less than the MRP.

For instance, the base model of OnePlus 6T, which costs Rs 37,999 can now be bought for Rs less than Rs 25,299. And considering 70-percent buyback on the OnePlus 6T, you are assured to get Rs 17,709 discount while buying OnePlus 7.

This means you would have spent just Rs 7,590 to buy the OnePlus 6T and will be entitled to get Rs 17,709 discount on OnePlus 7, which will be coming later this year.
