If you too are planning to buy a new Samsung phone in the upcoming festive season, then you will get good discounts and offers in Flipkart’s Big Billion Days Sale 2020. In addition to regular discounts in the annual sale, Flipkart has also announced a new buying plan in partnership with Samsung. Dubbed as Flipkart Smart Upgrade, this plan will let you buy Samsung phones at just 70% price. Read on to know the details of the offer!
What is Flipkart Smart Upgrade?
So, if you buy a Samsung smartphone on Flipkart now, you will see a Smart Upgrade Plan option under the device listing. When you will opt for the Smart Upgrade Plan, you will need to pay only 70 per cent of the price of the phone you are buying.
You can pay this amount upfront at once or in instalments, but only through a credit card or the EMIs on credit cards.
How this plan works?
Flipkart Smart Upgrade Plan will allow you to use the new Samsung phone for 12 months. After which you can upgrade to a new phone from Samsung on Flipkart. You will need to order a new phone, call Flipkart and submit your existing smartphone.
The good thing about the plan is that you don’t need to pay anything extra for the new phone and this amount that you have already paid will be sufficient for the new phone. You pay 70% of the total price of a phone and switch to a new Samsung phone after a year. Which seems quite right as you shift to a new tech.
Moreover, in case you want to keep the purchased phone, you will be required to pay the remaining 30 per cent of the total price. However, not paying the remaining amount will authorize Flipkart to lock your device without any clarification.
To be noted, you cannot avail any other offer with this plan for example any exchange offer. This might be bad for those who are looking to replace their old phone. Still the Smart Upgrade is also not that bad, and just 70 per cent will get you the new one.
For example, you can buy Galaxy S20+ (MRP Rs. 77,999) for just Rs. 35,198 during the sale. Samsung is already offering Rs. 28,000 discount durung the sale, and after the smart upgrade plan you will need to pay only 70% and own the S20+ at just Rs. 35,198.
This is good for those who like to keep up with the latest trends in the smartphone industry. Also, as per Flipkart, this discount is available only to select users and you will have to check if you have this offer on your Flipkart.
