The Flipkart Big10 sale is live now and is all set to offer huge discounts and cashback deals to consumers across a range of products. Flipkart had been betting big on the Big10 sale launch since the past few days and it does look pretty good with the cashback offer from PhonePe and HDFC instant discount offer.

Flipkart might not set high standards like they did with the 2014 Big Billion Days sale, but Big10 sale should look pretty decent.

While the sale’s up and live now, there are a few things that you should know to shop faster and save bigger. Here are key takeaways.

Electronics are saved for later

The sale’s live with TV, other appliances, fashion, lifestyle and household furniture deals starting today. The smartphones and other electronics deals will be going live on the Flipkart Big10 sale starting tomorrow, May 15.

Extra savings with PhonePe and HDFC

Flipkart is offering extra savings with PhonePe and HDFC cards. PhonePe is Flipkart’s in-house UPI app that enables users to send, receive money and pay at merchant points using Unified Payments Interface (UPI). Flipkart integrated PhonePe into the Flipkart mobile apps lately and allows shoppers to pay for their orders online with PhonePe. Get PhonePe on Google Play Store for Android or for iOS on iTunes App Store and sign up with your primary bank-linked mobile number to get going.

Flipkart is currently offering 30% cashback on PhonePe-paid orders with maximum cashback clocked at Rs 300. Buy for Rs 1000 with PhonePe for maximum savings. Note that the offer is applicable only on the first order during the Big10 sale being paid with PhonePe.

Successive orders paid with PhonePe will not entitle you to this cashback savings. Plan your purchase and pay for your first order between May 14 and 18 with PhonePe.

HDFC has partnered with Flipkart and is offering 10 instant discount for Flipkart Big10 orders. The minimum purchase needs is clocked at Rs 6499 and maximum instant discount is clocked at Rs 1500. You can buy upto Rs 15000 for maximum savings.

The HDFC offer is not applicable on corporate and commercial cards. You can use the card multiple times during the Big10 sale, until you get to save Rs 1500 per card.

A few items are not applicable to the HDFC card discount during the Big10 sale, and these include a few Samsung tablets, smartphones, Redmi Note 4, Redmi 3S and Redmi 3S Prime. It is suggested that you check the offer details on each item page during purchase to see if the item’s applicable against the HDFC offer.

Faster checkouts with wallet

If you are done shopping with your PhonePe and HDFC offers and have plans going upwards, you can always have your Flipkart wallet loaded or PhonePe wallet loaded to shop faster. Having these loaded helps you to checkout faster.

There would be no 3D secure card authentication or you wouldn’t need to wait for OTPs to arrive. This particularly helps during flash sales.

Lucky winners, MakeMyTrip vouchers are just eyewashes

It’s suggested that you do not spend time evaluating your chances against the lucky draw offers and MakeMyTrip vouchers. These are purely eyewashes, or at least come with a few caveats. There are tens of hundreds of terms that you will have to bind by if you wish to redeem these vouchers, and these are honestly a waste of time/
