Buying a premium smartphone is as much about the device as it is about the ownership experience that follows the purchase, and that’s another area where Flipkart excels. The platform has come up with several disruptive schemes and incentives that have cemented its place as the only online shopping destination for premium smartphone buyers. Take, for instance, Flipkart Smart Upgrade Plan that’s powered by Samsung’s Galaxy Forever program. It allows customers to purchase select Samsung handsets at just 70 percent of their actual value. This means customers can get popular smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy F41 at just Rs 10,860 instead of at BBD price of Rs 15,499. Similarly, the flagship Samsung Galaxy S20+ can be theirs for only Rs 35,198, a difference of Rs 14,801 compared to its sale price of Rs 49,999. Likewise, they can have the amazing Samsung Galaxy Note10+ for a year by paying just Rs 38,998 instead of Rs 54,999 during the Big Billion Days sale.
These prices can either be paid by upfront or in the form of EMIs that are easy on the pocket. A year after that, they can upgrade to a new device and return the old one. This program has been created especially for those who seek quick upgrades and low cost of ownership, have evolving needs, and are constantly on the lookout for phones with latest innovations.
Buyers of vivo smartphones are also in for a treat this Big Billion Days sale as the brand’s devices priced above Rs 10,000 will get a massive assured buyback guarantee of 70 percent! This means that you will get back as much as 70 percent of the phone’s value back if you exchange the device within 9-12 months of purchase. What makes the deal even sweeter is the cost of this plan — customers can get this 70 percent assured buyback guarantee on vivo smartphones at just Re 1! This plan covers all premium smartphones such as the vivo X50 and X50 Pro as well as the upcoming vivo V20 model.
Customer assurance is a big priority for any online marketplace, and Flipkart has that covered in a major way. The extended warranty program, Flipkart’s Complete Mobile Protection covers all kinds of repairs that your phone might need after its warranty period expires. What’s even better, this protection plan will start at a jaw-dropping price of just Re 1 during the sale! All these things make sure that once you’ve bought your premium phone from Flipkart, you will stay assured that the platform will have your back in case anything goes wrong.
When you’re buying a new phone, you always consider trading in your current device, and Flipkart is the best place for that. If your old smartphone is in working condition, Flipkart makes sure that you get the best exchange value for it, even if the screen is cracked! In fact, the better the condition of your smartphone, the more value you get upon exchanging the device. Now that’s the kind of service you can expect from a platform that has remained India’s preferred destination for premium smartphones for so many years! The no-cost EMI options are simply the icing on the cake and ensure that buying a premium smartphone doesn’t break the bank for the customers.
For premium smartphone buyers, nothing can be as comforting as the Flipkart Warranty Assistant.
