As the nation gears up to celebrate the 70th Republic Day on January 26, 2019, smartphone makers are offering discounts and cashback to lure consumers towards upgrading their smartphones. Amazon India and Flipkart concluded their Republic Day sales yesterday where they offered discounts on smartphones from leading brands and device makers are announcing their own offers. HMD Global, the Finnish company with license to sell Nokia-branded smartphones, has announced a new offer, where it will give 100 percent cashback on purchase on select models. The company will count you as a participant for this 100 percent cashback offer only if you buy one of the Nokia 8.1, Nokia 7.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 5.1 Plus or the Nokia 3.1 Plus smartphones during this Republic Day sale.
As one would expect, this 100 percent cashback offer does come with its own terms and conditions, and buyers will need to meet certain criteria in order to become eligible for the cashback. The company says every day one consumer will get 100 percent cashback on his or her purchase from its website. The cashback value will be transacted back to the account used by the customer to make transaction, and will be intimated on successful recharge. The offer is valid on devices bought between January 23, 2019 till January 30, 2019. The offer is not applicable for participants from the state of Tamil Nadu, the company says in its terms and conditions page (https://www.nokia.com/phones/en_in/offer-terms).
