Just like last year, Flipkart is organising Big Billion Days sale this year too. However, this time there are two changes in the sale. First, this year the sale will go on from 13th October to 17th October i.e. 5 days unlike just 1 day last year. Secondly, the sale will be app-only this year.
The reason for so much hype for this sale is that last time, there were huge discounts on various products like 16 GB pen drives for ₹ 1, etc. But some early buyers misused this offer and bought in high quantities which emptied the stock. Consequently the late buyers created backlash on social media. I did not buy anything since I was in college that day. But after seeing proof on Quora, I can say that the sale was genuine. So this time, I am waiting for it.
If you are thinking of buy something, wait till 13th October and check for the product on Flipkart.
For now, you can take the following 3 steps to make sure that you don't miss the sale:
1) Download the Flipkart app: If you haven't downloaded Flipkart app yet, download it now. Yeah, I know you hate buying from app but you don't want to miss the sale. So download the app till the sale.
2) Add Products to Wishlist: If you need to buy something specific, add it to wishlist so that you don't end up buying useless products instead of useful products.
3) Get 4G or be at a WiFi hotspot: If you are a professional, then you can't bunk college so you need to make sure that you have sufficient speed to play fastest finger on discounted products.
