Buying AC - Online / offline?

Deal Cadet

What has been your experience with AC installation between online & offline?

i am getting any model for 7.5K to 10K cheaper online but worried about proper installation and if its worth taking the risk for savings

No difference. Go for online if you are getting it cheaper. Personal Opinion.

You can’t get extended warranty with buying AC from Amazon/Flipkart. 

There are so many threads here in last few weeks, even I have explained a lot about such things. 

Can you atleast provide which model is 10-12k cheaper online as compared to online. For me, either they are same or offline is cheaper.

@Faug this is the one i am eyeing:

offline, it is 46k final (1k card offer, delivery charges etc)

online, it is 35k final (4k icici card offer, NCEMI discount, cashback coupon)

installation & accessories extra for both

yeah that is my concern as well regardless of savings. there was only 1 daikin authorised service center near me as per daikin website and i had called to enquire about the installation and they said we dont do it and just cut the call.

So far purchased 3 AC's online and 2 offline. Those 3 online ones are Voltas and bought those on Croma/TataCliq cause of additional warranty and free standard installation. Other 2 are Carrier. 

No difference with regards to installation and after sales service, online or offline. 

Having said that, I will not buy such appliances on Flipkart. Amazon, I may. TataCliq is my preferred online site for such items. 

At least in Pune for offline shopping of home appliances and electronics, you can't beat Vijay Sales.
