The year is about to end and e-tailers like Flipkart and Amazon are all set to lure customers once again with their deals and offers. With Christmas and New Year on the horizon, Flipkart is the first one to take the plunge with its Big Shopping Days 2017 which will be held from December 7 to December 9.
While Amazon India did introduce some deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday last week, Flipkart did not utilise the opportunity. Now we know why as the e-commerce giant will be hosting its own Big Shopping Days from December 7 to December 9. As with all the sales this year, Flipkart and Amazon have garnered much traction for their irresistible offers on both products old and new. Flipkart will begin its last leg of sale for this year from Thursday and we won’t be surprised if that is followed by Amazon India’s sale next week.
