You can officially pre-order the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in India now up until September 29 when the handsets go up for sale. Offline and online outlets alike are dishing out a number of deals to entice buyers into booking the devices early.
Official Apple partner Flipkart is serving up an iPhone 8 exchange scheme worth Rs 23000, Rs 3000 more than its standard value. There are also no cost EMIs up for grabs at Rs 5334/month, 10% off with SBI Debit and Credit Cards, 10% cashback on transactions done via PhonePe, an extra 5% off on Axis Bank Buzz Credit Cards, and a Rs 10000 cashback for Citi Credit and World Debit Cards.
Amazon India is trying a different approach. You’ll have to choose between 2 offers. One bundles in a 70% Jio buyback offer and Rs 10000 cashback for Citi Credit and World Debit Cards and the other an additional Rs 10000 off upon exchanging any iPhone and no cost EMIs starting at Rs 5334/month.
Reliance Jio’s buyback deal is also available via its own site, Reliance Digital shops, and Jio outlets. The iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus will have to be returned in a good working condition within the time period of 1 October to 31 December 2018. Moreover, you’ll have to be an active Jio subscriber who either pays Rs 799 per month for a year or Rs 9588 in one go.
It should be noted that the 70% buyback will be based on the invoice value and be handed over in the form of a voucher which can be redeemed at specific locations. Finally, Infibeam has also begun taking pre-orders for the iPhone 8 pair but doesn’t appear to have any active schemes other than EMIs starting at Rs 3043.
