Amazon Prime Day 2019: Great Picks for travellers

I did not manage to look at the Amazon Prime Day 2019 sales yesterday, but there is still a great deal on travel going on which allows for  INR 2,500 discount on tickets when booking with Amazon Flights.

Remember, the Prime Day sale, which ends today, is offering a blanket 10% off, up to INR 1750 when you buy things with the HDFC Bank Credit Cards, Debit Cards and even when you purchase on EMI, as long as you are buying worth more than INR 3,000. Further, if you end up buying more than INR 50,000 worth, you get another INR 1,750 cashback into your Amazon account for future purchases.

I thought I’d put up some of my favourite deals from the Prime Day sale, in case you are looking to check out stuff from the filter of a business traveller.

Apple Airpods at INR 11,699

Apple Airpods are a must have for those on the move, and using a lot of Apple devices. I had the first variant from last year, but Shipra nicely gifted herself those, so I’ve been looking for a good deal on these to be able to pick up one for myself for a long while. The new ones are the same as the old one, but come with the new Apple chip which allows for better pairing. While they cost INR 14,000 on a normal day, today they are going for INR 12,999. When you plug an HDFC Bank Credit Card number, it goes down further to INR 11,699. Mine are on their way now.

Bower & Wilkins PX Noise Cancelling Headphones for INR 32,450

The Bower & Wilkins PX are the headphones I’ve been using for a month now, and they are doing pretty well for me in terms of delivering some great sound in my ears and cancelling sound while in the air or on the ground. While I will write a full review sometime soon, they are good is the summary judgement. And they are available for a 10% discount price right now, making it INR 34,200. On paying with the HDFC cards, you get it for INR 32,450.

There are some other great deals on cheaper Noise Cancelling headsets as well, such as the Sony WH-1000XM3.

There are about 5% discounts on the entire range of Apple products as well, and the whole range is available.

a product on the pageAmazon just put out their AmazonBazics Set of 3 suitcases on sale as well for INR 10,999 which will eventually go for INR 9,899 when you pay with the HDFC Debit or Credit Cards. They are also available on individual pieces if you don’t want to buy the entire set. I’ve used a similar suitcase from Travelpro, and it worked pretty well for a few years.

I’d encourage you to check out the Prime Day sale if you haven’t done it so far! There is some interesting stuff there.

What is your favourite pick from the Prime Day 2019?

  1. Hi Ajay

    How are the B&W NC headphones as compared to Bose?
    The latter are 10/10 on Noise cancellation, but only 8/10 on sound quality, IMHO

    Was hoping to get feedback from someone who has done a side by side comparison
