Amazon Great India Sale is almost over, and if you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of days, or if you’ve finally recharged your mobile data pack and are coming online after a hiatus, this might be a good time to get a quick refresher on Amazon’s latest deals extravaganza.
The first day of the sale saw great numbers for Amazon India, with Monday being the “biggest ever day” in the company’s history. While the second day didn’t see a lot of new deals in the popular mobiles and electronics categories that we tend to track, the best deals from day one continued to be available.
Day three has a similar theme, so if you’ve seen this article on the previous days and didn’t see anything you like, today is likely to be no different. However, since these deals are still available, we thought best to share them with those who might have missed them earlier, and we do have a new pick right at the top.
