Apple dealers and e-commerce retailers in the country are offering discounts going from Rs 5,000 to Rs 25,000 for your existing smartphone. According to sources, Maple, Reliance Digital and many others are offering a maximum buyback price of Rs 25,000 for devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Note 5 etc, while previous generation iPhones should also fetch the same amount.
One caution here is that most Apple resellers are offering the iPhones without any offline discounts, which basically means that you will be getting the discount on the original asking price of Rs 62,000 for the 16GB iPhone 6s and Rs 72,000 for the 16GB iPhone 6s. The top tier 128GB models of the iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus are priced at Rs 82,000 and Rs 92,000 by Apple India officially.
On the other side, you can purchase the 16GB iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus for just about Rs 45,499 and Rs 57,000 respectively through e-commerce retailer Flipkart. So, it makes sense to avail the cashback or buyback promotions from e-commerce retailers as you end up saving more that way.
Fortunately, Flipkart is running an exchange promo up to Rs 20,000 on the smartphones as well, which again favours devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 etc. Getting larger cashback on older devices might be difficult though.
The end result here is that you’re certainly going to save more money if you purchase the iPhone 6s or the 6s Plus through Flipkart. A Rs 20,000 discount tops on entry-level iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus will bring the cost down to just Rs 25,499 and Rs 37,000 for the respectively, which is really cool.
Also, you can head over to your nearest Maple, Croma, Reliance Digital outlets to check out the deals they’re offering. This offer is through an Apple endorsed promotion, so all of Apple’s resellers in India should be running them.
