Amid the second edition of Amazon’s Great Indian Festival sale Amazon has announced a deal on iPhone 6s (64GB) exclusively for its Prime members. The e-commerce platform will give away iPhone 6s (64GB) for Rs 42,999 as a part of its lighting deals, which starts at 6PM today.
Apple iPhone 6s (Rose Gold, 64 GB) is available on Flipkart as well but at a significantly higher price. It costs Rs 55,200 on the site. The Space Grey colour variant costs the same as the Rose Gold colour version on Flipkart. Infibeam, which is the official distributor of Apple’s products in India, is selling the iPhone 6s (Rose Gold, 64GB) at Rs 50,111.
This special price is only applicable for Amazon India‘s Prime members. The sale starts at 6:00PM and ends at 8:00PM, but stocks are likely to be limited. During the first edition of Great Indian Festival, Amazon India put up the iPhone 6s 16GB variant on sale for Prime members for only Rs 29,999. But due to limited stocks, all units were claimed in a matter of seconds. You should expect a similar situation today as well.
To stand a chance to grab the iPhone 6s, you should be logged in and be on the Prime deal page at least 15 minutes before 6:00PM. Once the clock strikes six, you will immediately see the ‘Add to Cart’ button below the iPhone 6s. But chances are, all units are claimed in seconds and you will instead see the ‘Join Waitlist’ button. Those who are successful in adding an iPhone 6s unit to their cart will get exactly 15 minutes to checkout. If they fail to do so, the unit will be removed from the cart and added to the person who is on the waitlist.
Currently, the Apple iPhone 6s 64GB variants are listed on Amazon India with a price tag of Rs 45,999. Only the gold and rose gold variants are in stock at the time of filing this story, while the space grey units will be available on October 21. At Rs 42,999, the iPhone 6s 64GB variant offers plenty of value for money, especially now that Apple only sells the 32GB and 128GB variants, and the price for the iPhone 6s 32GB starts at Rs 50,000. Despite being a year old, it is still a capable device and can easily compete against this year’s flagship devices. It is little wonder then that despite the launch of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus most e-commerce sites tend to run out of iPhone 6s stocks during sales.
Amazon is currently hosting its Great Indian Festival, which will last till October 20. The shopping site is offering discounts as well as exchange deals on most smartphones. Amazon exclusive smartphones like OnePlus 3, Moto G4 Plus, Lenovo Z2 Plus, Mi Max Prime, Samsung Galaxy On 7 Pro and On 5 Pro can be bought at discount during the sale as well. Also, Amazon is offering 15 per cent and 10 per cent cashback for Citi bank cards for app and site users respectively.
