The Independence month promises to be a special one for shopping enthusiasts in India. The two giants of Indian E-commerce – Flipkart and Amazon have locked horns in a discount war once again. The exciting part of this clash is that it is the first one to happen after the Government of India drafted new guidelines restricting huge discounts for online marketplaces in India.
Amazon had earlier come out with the Great Indian Sale (Aug 8th-10th) which it claimed to be a huge success. While the discounts were not very huge, the company pushed its Prime subscription for faster delivery to win over customers.
As the attention shifts to Flipkart Freedom Sale (Aug 10th-12th), there are more exciting deals and discounts to look forward to. Since Flipkart’s sale begins after Amazon, there is more time for the Bangalore-based company to edge out Amazon on big discounts and offers.
Here are some exciting deals and shopping offers to look out for, along with tricks for more savings at the Flipkart Freedom Sale.

Just a day before the big sale, Flipkart went live with the new Xiaomi Redmi 3S smartphone with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The limited quantity phones that were available on an open sale went off the shelves in minutes (8 minutes to be exact).
While there were expectations for the Redmi 3S to be available for the Freedom Sale, the phone remains out of stock till now. Would it be available again before the sale ends? We’ll have to wait and see!
