Here’s more proof that you shouldn’t take all Indian online festive offers at face value

A data analyst compared list prices of products before and during the sales and found that the mega 50% to 80% discounts were ‘in name only’.

Nothing new. If you have a price tracker then you can check it yourself.

There are always a few products on good discount but rest are on regular price.

I took the sale at face value and bought 7a at 4500, post cashback.
Two months ago, I had bought the exact mobile at 5600.
Can you do the math and tell me if it was indeed a sale or just fooled me?

May be it’s not.
I felt posting only news articles like this and creating topics on who died, policy changes, who won and similar things is really self promotion

Most often, it is not the 70,80% offers that people shop for, but rather the small discounts alongwith cards+ cashbacks, specially for electronics, big appliances etc. I m sure these eletronics form the biggest part of these sales.

Amazon usually gives good offer of 10% off + 1000cb on 5000 for fashion purchases.

Otherwise, if you will track the price, you wont find much difference. It is in these extra discounts+cards+cashbacks that the sale becomes useful for.

I prefer buyhatke extension from chrome. There you can check the prices. Flipkart provides by default.

most sales item have 15-20% addl discount than normal price. even the aricle itself proces that. add the extra cashback due to various card offers and the price difference becomes significant. but that is only for those rational buyers who want to buy specific items, keep that in wishlist and then use the benefit of sale. for the compulsive buyers, just word “sale” is enough to buy things they do not even need.

Forgive the article writer, he don’t know where and how to make the best out of it. In front of a dimer, he’s a newbie at best. stuck_out_tongue

ask flipkart or redmi who sell the mobiles and fix prices

they cleared the stocks and launched redmi 8a + redmi 8

same thing with amazon – redmi 7 – stock clearing was done in this sale

now who is fooling whom – ask the manufactures and retailers
