How to find the best deals during Amazon Great Indian Festival 2021 sale?
Compare before you buy
The single most effective thing you can do during online festive season sales is compare prices before you decide to pay. Both Amazon and Flipkart are known to match prices for some of the most common deals during these festive season sales. Buying an iPhone during the Amazon Great Indian Festival 2021 sale? Make sure you check prices on other online marketplaces too. Getting a great deal on a big-screen TV on the Great Indian Festival 2020 sale? Make sure you see what others are offering before you buy.

This means, exchange offers, possible additional discounts on some payment methods, cashback offers, brand-specific exchange incentives, and no-cost EMI offers. At times, you can end up with a better overall deal even if the discounted price on a different platform is more.
Look out for previewed deals, plan early
Amazon Great Indian Festival 2021 sale has already started previewing some of the major upcoming offers. The online marketplace will reveal a lot more deals in the next two days. You can start making a wishlist of items you want to buy to keep an eye on how the prices shift. You’re also more likely to receive alerts (if you’ve set them up on the Amazon mobile app) when the products on your wishlist go on sale during the Great Indian Festival sale. Plan what you really need to buy so that you don’t end up with a heavy credit card bill due to a big unplanned session of impulse buying.

If you’re lucky, it’ll be available again the next day, but you don’t want to take any chances. To make sure you grab those ‘crazy’ deals, you’ll need to arrive early.
