Apple’s iPhones are indeed one of the best premium smartphones you can buy today. And while it is tempting to buy one, most of us are often disappointed and steered away due to the hefty price tag. If you’ve been waiting to upgrade from your existing smartphone to a new iPhone without having to spend a bomb, today is probably the best time to do so. Flipkart and Paytm are offering some good discounts, cashback and buyback offers to entice the iPhone buyers. We have listed a few major deals here to help make your iPhone buying easier.

A few caveats first. Paytm is offering cash back that will come in your account and you can only use it for making payments via Paytm. The cashback is given as a store credit in your Paytm account within 24 hours, and it can only be used to buy any product on the site or to pay for your mobile, landline or utility bills. Meanwhile, Flipkart has exchange offers and the exchange discount depends on the smartphone you are exchanging and its condition. You can get a maximum buyback value of Rs 23,500, which is valid on iPhone 6s Plus. That said, lets look at the offers.
