E-commerce portal Amazon India announced the Summer Sale offering deals across a wide range of products including consumer electronics, mobile phones, fashion products, laptops, audio devices, smartwatches and more. Under this sale, customers will get cashbacks, no cost EMIs, bank offers and exchange discounts.
The Amazon Summer Sale will begin on 13 May and end on 16 May, the same four days that Flipkart has chosen for its Big Shopping Days sale. It is obvious that Amazon India has selected these days to compete with Flipkart’s Big Shopping Days sale and it will be interesting to see which company comes out with better offers.
