On January 27, 2015 at Bangalore the leading e-commerce retailer Amazon.in announced an ‘Exclusive Access Sale‘, which is on an invite-only basis of the YUREKA. This is an exclusive sale which has been hosted for the contest winners and the customers who had booked YUREKA earlier but were unable to avail the product due to some uncertain issues. The sale is expected to go live on Wednesday, January 28th from 2PM to 3PM.
The customers who will be eligible for participating in this sale will be receiving and email invite from Amazon.in. Amazon has specified that the following criteria for the customers will be eligible to participate in the sale tomorrow :
1. Contest winners who have won the YUREKA as part of any contest that was hosted by YU across their social media channels
2. Customers whose orders had to be cancelled when they purchased the YUREKA at the MRP (Rs. 12,499) instead of the sale price (Rs. 8,999) during the first sale hosted on January 13th
3. Registered users who were unable to purchase the YUREKA as their payments were declined
4. Customers who received a defective or damaged YUREKA handset
Yureka is the very first device from a company named YU which is launched with Cyanogen OS and would be receiving exclusive OTA firmware updates and support in India. With the rising population of Android phones, YU will unleash a new era of development for Android in India, the reason being that it allows the users to root their device to run endless amounts of customization on their device without voiding their warranty. This would offer an enhanced and updated product experience, which is currently not supported by any other brand in the country.
The third weekly sale for YUREKA is scheduled to go live on Thursday, January 29th on Amazon.in from 2pm onwards for all the customers who have registered themselves for this sale.
