Discounts & Offers On Amazon Products
Moving on, Amazon is promising some decent discounts (Up to 50% off) on Amazon Echo, Fire TV, and Kindle devices. However, we found some inconsistencies in its claims. For instance, the Echo Dot 4th generation is already listed at the same discounted price of Rs. 2,949. Similarly, the flat 64% off on the Echo Dot (3rd Generation) and Philips smart bulb combo seem invalid as the product duo is already up for grabs at the same touted price of Rs. 2,299.
You won’t have to wait for the promised discount on the Echo Show (5th gen.) as the smart speaker is already available at the price of Rs. 4,499 under the countdown deal. Besides, Amazon is promising up to Rs. 3,400 off on select Kindle E-readers, flat 45% off on Echo (4th Generation), flat 48% off on Fire TV Stick Lite, flat Rs. 2,100 off on Fire TV Stick, up to 48% off on select Smart TVs with Fire TV built-in and flat 50% off on Amazon Smart Plug.
The discounted deals and offers sound good; however, as we said earlier, don’t forget to match the before and after prices of all such products before making a purchase. Finally, Amazon is also offering up to 70% off on selected refurbished products under its Amazon renewed section, but we recommend you steer clear of such deals.
