The Flipkart Big Billion Days and Amazon Great Indian Festival sales kicked off for everyone today, putting the popular iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 up for grabs at their lowest ever prices. The iPhone 13 went on sale early on Flipkart for Plus members, while the iPhone 12 offer was live for Amazon Prime members a day before on September 22. The iPhone 13 was selling for under Rs 50,000, while the iPhone 12 was available for under Rs 40,000 on Amazon. But these too-good-to-be-true offers last only a few minutes.

Right after the first batch of the iPhone 13 ran out of stock, Flipkart replenished the stock but this time the offer on the iPhone 13 was less sweet. Instead of the price of around Rs 48,000, the iPhone 13 is now available for Rs 56,990, which is still lower than the regular price of Rs 69,900. The iPhone 12, on the other hand, is now selling for Rs 44,999 on Amazon as compared to the earlier discounted price of Rs 39,990. But you can still shave off money on these deals.

How to save more on your iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 deals

Exchange discounts - Over and above the upfront discounts on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 during the Amazon and Flipkart sales, there are exchange offers that you must go for if you have an old, used phone that you want to get rid of. If you want extra discounts on the iPhone 13 or the iPhone 12, sell your old phone. However, remember to do your research on who is offering the best exchange value. Both Flipkart and Amazon have announced there will be a bonus on exchange offers, so you are likely to get Rs 3,000 - Rs 4,000 over and above the value of your used phone. For some phones, the exchange offer deals on Amazon and Flipkart may be the best you could get, but for the rest, try to get estimates from other trade-in websites, such as Cashify.

Exclusive credit cards - One of the reasons why buying a product during festive season sales makes sense is the credit card discount. Shopping websites tie up with various banks to offer cashback and discounts on your purchases. But these discounts are always capped at a certain limit. For instance, a 10 percent discount or cashback on buying an iPhone 13 with an assumed price of Rs 49,990 should be Rs 4,999, but since the cap is Rs 1,500. To maximise your savings, you could go for a branded credit card. For Flipkart, you should go for the Flipkart Axis Bank credit card and for Amazon, you should apply for an Amazon Pay ICICI Bank credit card.

Both cards earn you a cashback of 5 percent on most of your purchases on their respective websites. And the best part is that this cashback is not capped. So if you are buying the iPhone 13, you will get Rs 2,499 back as 5 percent of the offer price. In comparison with the regular offer, you are saving Rs 1,000 more on the iPhone 13 deal on Flipkart if you use a Flipkart Axis Bank credit card. Similarly, buying the iPhone 12 from Amazon using an Amazon Pay ICICI Bank credit card will save you more money than using the card that is temporarily a part of the sale.
