The Big Diwali Sale by Flipkart is going to end on 16th October, whereas Amazon’s sale will end a day after i.e. on 17th October. During this period the two competitors are offering massive discounts of a wide range of products including smartphones, TVs, laptops and other devices.
Besides the discounts, the two brands are also giving special offers to debit and credit cardholders who can avail instant 10 per cent discount on their purchase.
