As regular travellers, we keep on the use of technology all the time. There are gadgets like the Bose noise cancelling headsets that make our lives easy on the road, and then there are devices that we are on the lookout to upgrade like my current laptop. There are tonnes of travel essentials on sale now!
This year’s first big sale has already begun on Amazon India and Flipkart, and here are some great offers we thought would be of use for all of you! Amazon is also professing an instant 10% discount for HDFC Bank Card users, and Flipkart is offering 10% off for Citibank Card holders. So take your pick before it goes away!
Google Pixel XL INR for INR 35,990 (53% off)
Google Pixel claims to have the best smartphone camera in the world, and it does indeed perform very well in low-light. Top it up with unlimited image and video storage on Google Photos and Android OS which has not been modified by the manufacturer or added bloatware. On Amazon, you get another 10% off with HDFC Bank Cards, and on Flipkart, you get 10% off with Citibank cards.
Seagate 1.5 TB Portable Hardrive for INR 3,999 (56% off)
I’ve been on the lookout for a decent hard drive for some time now. We keep running out of space in the cloud and off it. Glad that I postponed my purchase because I just found the Seagate hard drive marked down by almost 60%
MacBook Air for INR 54,490 (30% off)
Apple’s MacBook Air changed the game forever. I know of people who have owned one for over five years now, and the computer keeps going strong. I might just jump on the bandwagon too. Ajay tells me this is a great price to consider the MacBook Air. Add the 10% off for HDFC Bank card holders, and we have a gem!
Bose QuietComfort 25 NoiseCancelling Headphones for INR 15K (40% off)
This is one travel essential that Ajay swears by. He never leaves for a long trip without his Bose. Try them out. They are cheaper than the US of A right now here.
Victorinox Spectra for INR 10,950 (45% off)
Victorinox bags are going at almost 50% discount. The reason I love them is that they are smart, durable and come with a lifelong warranty like no other. The customer care is prompt with repairs and replacements.
There are tonnes of other discounts as well on the Amazon and Flipkart sales, and I’m sure you are all looking to get some great deals as well.
What is your best find in the sales? Do share in the comments below.
I got a mail from HDFC stating you can still get 10x on Amazon. You can use SmartBuy to “Compare and Shop” – this will give you both 10% off (current offer on HDFC Amazon) and 10x points.
It can be a good mention for your readers.
Victorinox luggage is expensive even though 50% off.
Bose headset is a good deal. Worth it.
Pixel is the older generation phone!!! Pixel 2 is the current release.
“They are cheaper than the US of A right now here.”
I guess not. Bose is currently selling these QC25 at a reduced price of 179 USD here in the US of A.
FYI, that offer is for the Pixel (1st generation) which was released in October 2016 and is NOT water resistant.
The Pixel 2, released in October 2017 IS water resistant and is IP67 rated.
