Dear Dimers,

As Big Billion Day and Great Indian Festiva are approaching, I know that like me a lot of people must haveput their purchases on hold to avail the benefits. The next challenge is to have the specific bank cards to actually gain something from these sales. I came up with the following as a workaround to have multiple cards. Any inputs and previous experiences would help me and as well as others. So, please feel free to comment.

1. Big Billion Day, Flipkart: Axis (debit/credit) + ICICI (credit)

Amazon pay icici card is pretty easy to generate and is free for lifetime. I just got one approved and got a cashback of 600. This is a standalone standard ICICI card and should work. Both ICIC and Flipkart couldn’t answer my questions on the eligibility for discounts though.

2. Great Indian Festival, Amazon: SBI

There’s an option in SBI net banking to generate a one time use prepaid debit card. I have used it earlier but don’t know if it will be valid for the discount.

Amazon ICICI card works fine on Flipkart during sales. I had used it last time to purchase phones and got instant discount of 10% plus the regular 1%.

in my experience, similar offers are there. Use some price tracking tool and you will get some insight.
All should be 10% up to 1500 or 2000.

Last year it was upto 5K right ? FK?
Then Amazon too added 10% upto 8K cashback for 50k+ purchases
That too individual limits were there.

I think you are right. I don’t remember that accurately. It would be great if the limit is higher as I have to get a lot of appliances this time.

Extra prime cashback right ?
That was also a good deal. Not exactly sure about the purchase time but got Mi TV 49" for 27k effective with this offer

Hope something like that comes this time too.
Best would be with hdfc card, 10% card discount + 10% amazon pay cb + smartbuy🤑

Got for my sister
I suggested them to get Iffalcon 55" 4K but they were adamant on getting Mi 49" rolleyes
Personally I did not like the picture quality too, its not bright enough at all. It doesn’t even deserve to be called HDR TV
and the OS is slow + it lags (They have no issues lol)

I am planning to get OPTV if they price it around 50-60k this sale time, let’s see

Haven’t checked personally apart from seeing the older 55" model @ the Mi Home Store once
For what’ve found online
The newer launch (55" 4K non-sleek model) has a better display (10bit vs older 8-bit) which means the later supports HDR better

Anyways I wouldn’t recommend them both as Xiaomi might launch newer gen models pretty soon
Now that Motorola and OnePlus are also in the TV game, its gonna be competitive like the phone market
One con with all these 40k 50k tvs is the hardware (to run the software/Android TV). These all have mediocre specs especially the internal storage. I hope OPTV comes with atleast 3/4GB RAM & 32/64GB RAM and sets the trend

I checked the 55inch model at Mi Home. The panel doesn’t look me that bright and doesn’t looks 4K at all
