Just weeks before the launch of its latest flagship smartphone the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung has announced new offers for its existing flagships devices in the market. It seems that the company is aiming at the customers who may not be looking at the Note 9 as their new smartphone. All these new offers are available on the Samsung India online Shop. According to the sale event “Move-up to Galaxy”, the company is offering benefits up to Rs 12,000 including cashback offers up to Rs 6,000.
In addition to that, Samsung is also offering cashback deals for HDFC card owners for up to Rs 6,000 or Rs 6,000 discount as part of the Exchange bonus. This offer comes days after reports emerged indicating weak sales for the Samsung Galaxy S9 series in comparison to the expectations of the company. These offers may be an attempt on part of the company to bolster the sales by attracting users with such discounts. The amount of cashback available on all the three devices and benefits is different when compared to each other.
To break down the offers, users will get Rs 6,000 cashback if they use HDFC Credit Card and a Rs 3,000 instant cashback that is applied during the checkout process. EMI offers start from Rs 5,740.89 per month for the Samsung Galaxy S9+. Users can also get up to Rs 6,000 off on select models or up to Rs 3,300 off with the help of the Samsung upgrade program.
