Amazon has announced that its annual Prime Day event in India will be held on July 26th and 27th. During this mega shopping festival, the e-commerce website offers great discounts on a wide range of products. Well, with the Prime Day event just around the corner, the e-commerce website has announced a new program in India for Prime members, named Advantage — Just for Prime. This unique program offers huge benefits to smartphone buyers in the country. Let us have a look at the Advantage — Just for Prime programme in detail.
Amazon Advantage — Just for Prime program benefits
The Advantage — Just for Prime programme, as the name suggests, is exclusive to Amazon Prime members. It extends the benefits of the Prime membership by offering additional discounts on smartphone purchases to members. Here are all the benefits that you can expect to avail:
1. Six months free screen replacement
Let’s start with the most exciting benefit of the Advantage — Just for Prime program, the free screen replacement offer. The new program from Amazon offers free screen replacement for six months on select smartphones. So, if the screen of your phone breaks within six months of purchasing the device, you can get it repaired for free. You won’t have to pay a single penny. Here is how much money you can save with this offer:
Let us take a smartphone that costs Rs 14,999, for example. The average cost for replacing its screen will be around Rs 6,000. Similarly, if you take a mid-range smartphone that costs Rs 24,999, its estimated screen replacement cost is Rs 10,000. And if you consider a high-end smartphone that costs Rs 54,999, the cost for replacing its screen will set you back by Rs 19,000. With the new Amazon programme, the screen replacement is completely free. As you can see, you will save anywhere from Rs 6,000 to Rs 19,000 on the screen replacement under the Advantage – Just for Prime program.
2. Extended no-cost EMI tenure
You already get the no-cost EMI option on many smartphones on Amazon India. Now, the Advantage — Just for Prime programme extends the EMI tenure by up to six months. So, if a smartphone is being offered with up to 12 months of no-cost EMIs, the EMI tenure will be increased to 18 months. The extended EMI tenure varies depending upon the model of the phone.
With the extended no-cost EMI tenure, you can save a significant amount of money that you would have to rather pay on the EMI interests. Moreover, with the extended EMI tenure, the upfront cost for purchasing a smartphone will reduce significantly. This makes it easier for buyers to choose a smartphone of their desire. It is worth mentioning that the extended no-cost EMI offer is valid only on HDFC Bank credit and debit cards.
Savings of up to Rs 25,016 with Advantage — Just for Prime
If you combine the six-month free screen replacement and the extended No Cost EMI tenure offers, your total potential cost savings could range anywhere from Rs 6,653 to Rs 25,016. That is a significant amount of saving. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to pay a single penny for all these benefits if you are already an Amazon Prime member. I’m sure that the Advantage — Just for Prime program will attract a lot of customers to Prime.
Smartphones covered under Advantage — Just for Prime
At this point, you might be asking, which smartphones are covered under Amazon Advantage — Just for Prime. Well, a total of 15 smartphones are covered under this offer at the moment, from Samsung, Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, and iQOO. Below is a list of smartphones covered under Advantage — Just for Prime program. We have also listed the benefits you will get with these smartphones under Amazon’s new program.
