iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, Lumia 1320, and More in Tech Deals of the Week
This is probably the best week to grab a great deal on the iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, or the iPhone 5c. We’ve got a deal on a wireless mouse and keyboard combo, laptops, budget 5.1 speaker system, and a whole lot more.
1. Discounts on iPhones all this week at Amazon
Amazon is running a week-long promotion this week on almost all iPhone variants. The offers will be a mix of flat discounts as well as EMI offers on specific credit cards. Today’s offer is valid on iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c. You can get cashback up to Rs. 8,400 on iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s, and up to Rs. 5,000 on iPhone 5c. You’ll need to pick an EMI option, and pay using an HDFC credit card to avail the offer. The cashback amount will take care of the interest component that will be charged to your account, so you end up with an almost interest-free EMI offer itself. In case you pay using a different card, and pick EMIs, you can still get an Amazon gift card worth Rs. 5,500 with an iPhone 6, worth up to Rs. 6,300 with an iPhone 5s, and worth up to Rs. 3,500 with an iPhone 5c.
Pro tip: Keep an eye out for special Lightning Deals on Amazon this week if you’re eyeing an iPhone. The week-long sale will also include flat discounts but the stocks will be limited, and the deals will be packaged into the daily Lightning Deal.
