Flipkart is also offering users the chance to pay Rs 99 extra, and get a buyback guarantee up to Rs 44,000 of the value of the phone. This can be availed when exchanging the iPhone 15 months later.

Buyers can also avail up to Rs 23,000 off on exchanging their old smartphones. However, when exchanging an old iPhone, consumers will get an extra Rs 3,000 over regular exchange. Further, buyers can get an additional 12 percent off if they are planning to exchange their current smartphone. They can do so by running a test on the device via the Flipkart app.
Discounts and cashback

Besides these, customers can also avail extended warranty with pickup and drop. They can also get seven day repair/replacement guarantee.
