Flipkart’s The Big Freedom Sale has been announced. The online retailer has gone ahead and revealed that its next big sale, in anticipation of India’s 72nd Independence Day, will be held between August 10-12, 2018. While offers haven’t yet been revealed, Flipkart has announced that it will be holding blockbuster deals, price crash offers, rush hour deals, The Freedom Hour, and hourly deals during the 72-hour sale period. Amazon India is also conducting its Freedom Sale that kicks off a day earlier, on August 9. The sale will, however, run until August 12.
As part of Flipkart’s The Big Freedom Sale, users can avail a cashback of up to 10 percent with Citibank credit cards, however the upper amount limit is not yet known. Flipkart has revealed that blockbuster deals and price crash offers will be held every eight hours during the sale period. Apart from that, a ‘rush hour’ with ‘revolutionary deals’ will be held between 12am and 2am on August 10, i.e, at the start of the Flipkart sale.
Other than that, hourly deals will be held during the entirety of the 72-hour period, similar to the Lightning deals that have previously been held during Amazon India’s sales. Lastly, a ‘Freedom Countdown’ will be held on all three days of the Flipkart sale, between 7:47pm and 8:18pm, with 31 minutes of price drops on products across categories.
