Republic Day : INDIA : 26th January 1950: A day which is and always be remembered by every INDIANS as this is the day when Constitution of India came in to force as governing document of India by replacing the Government of India act.
As Republic Day is just few days ahead, most of the online retailers are also participating by bringing best of best offers and discounts to the online shoppers. When everyone in this country are busy with event preparation for Republic Day, some online retailers have also painted their portal in tri-colours (Saffron, White and Green) and Asoka Chakra.
The best part is that for next few days, you can find the best offers on many products and can save money while you shop online. Online shopping is not just buying it from a specific portal for a product that we are looking for, instead it should be getting that product at lowest price so that some money can be saved which can be used for other expenses.
After going through most of the portals, some of the best offers that I think people would get benefited are as stated below.
These Offers are named as REPUBLIC DAY SALE.

First, let's talk about the Cash Back Offers. The reason for bringing this at first section is that if an online shopper has the specific card on which the cash back offer is there and the product of which he/she is looking for has some discounts then he/she will get the double benefit of Cash back and as well as of discount.


The above picture clearly states that if shopping done by using a HSBC Credit or Debit Card and if the minimum purchases are worth Rs 10,000 then the customer will be eligible for getting 10% cash back. Also the maximum cash back per HSBC card that a customer can avail is Rs 3,000.
Smart Shoppers can take this offers in buying Mobiles, Tablets, Laptops, Gaming Consoles and any other electronic items as the cost of the mentioned items are normally greater than Rs 10,000.

If noticed couple of years back people use to wait for sales at Offline stores like in Malls and Complexes and even I use to do so and the reasons for to buy at Offline stores was to get the feel of the footwear purchased and mainly to get the perfect size. Normally even in sale, I was never satisfied by the discounts given by stores as it use to be very less. Now there is no need of waiting for sale as frequently the online retailers come up with one or the other offer and choosing a perfect size is also not a challenge any more. The best part of the online stores are that they have this replacement policy where in the items can be returned within specified time if the item is faulty, wrong size or any other reason. No charges has to be paid during replacing the items. In this Republic Day sale, there is really a good offers on both Men and Women's Footwear.


This is my personal experience when I go to shop for Kitchen or Home Appliances at Offline Stores. The margin of profit kept on from small items like Spoon, fork, Toaster to Microwave is really huge. One of my friend has Home Appliances Offline store and I had a chance to look at the Stock Sheet. The sheet is divided in to 3 sections, ITEM NAME, DEALERS PRICE, Maximum Retail Price. Dealers Price is the one at which the Retailer gets the product from the Whole Seller and the MRP is at which the product is sold to the Consumer. Now I being close when ask for discounts and just to win my confidence he opens the sheet and tells that take the item at Dealers Price and he justifies saying that he is making No profit on the products which I have purchased but Hang On, that is only on the sheet. Actually he gets the product for more 6 to 10% less than the Dealers Price. Think If the stores sells the product on MRP. The profit is huge. Anyway now for any item I browse online and get best offers.


As Innovation has become a part of our daily life and every day we see new things, electronics and computers are the one which are the major part of these changes. Very hardly we can see that a person using a laptop which is 5 to 10 years old from now. Also shelling out money on laptop every time when there is new model in the market doesn't make sense as the cost of laptops are high when launched. More over getting the right price for the old laptop is difficult and people compromise on the price that they are not happy with. Now this online retailer has come up with Laptop Exchange offer where in the old laptop can be exchange for a new one where in the maximum amount quoted for old laptop is up to Rs 9000.

Smart Shoppers can choose a laptop which costs between Rs 30,000 to Rs 40,000. Let's choose a Laptop which cost Rs 39,000. Exchanging of Old laptop fetched Rs 9,000. Now the cost of the laptop is Rs 30,000. Use HSBC Credit or Debit Card and get 10% Cash Back on it i.e. Rs 3,000. Logically the cost of the Laptop for you is Rs 27,000 which is actually a great deal on Electronics.
