GOSF (Great Indian Shopping Festival) is here, and just like what we saw last year, there should be a lot to expect, a lot of discounts and promotions from companies and the stores participating in it. At least 400 brands in different categories are going to come up with the promotions but you shouldn’t be cheated and complain later, as you cannot trust every brand to really give you a discount. Be wise, and be swift enough to grab on to the deal if you found it is actually saving you some money.
Just recently, Flipkart’s big billion day seemed to have messed up and many buyers felt betrayed by the online stores – all the big three, Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal. Here’s a few things you need to keep in mind before choosing the best deals and actually saving money while purchasing the products.
The GOSF runs from 10th December 2014 to 12th December 2014, so you still have some time before you can jump into the shopping spree. Why not create a wishlist? That’s what I did last time when I was exploring the deals on Flipkart during the big billion day. Make a wishlist, take screenshots of the entire list that you saved, so that the pricing is shown there. Open the competitor stores and check the pricing today itself, for the same products.
Now, during the sale, you will be able to check the price currently and what it was before the sale. Based on that, come to a conclusion whether you are to purchase it and get some savings or not.
Mysmartprice has a dedicated page for GOSF 2014 where you will be able to get the best of the deals, with the best part being that you are seeing them in different categories, so no clutter at all and you can choose the products based on category.
There are many gadgets you will be seeing with price discounts, some combo offers and freebies which were not a part of the package anytime before the GOSF sale, and the next best category would be apparels. We at PhoneRadar also have the gadgets section with all the products listed with lowest price available, so that you get the idea whether the sale price is any lesser or not. So again, be wise and keep the fact in mind that you cannot get the best deals in every category but for sure there would be something exciting in electronics, apparels and wrist watches.
