After adjusting all the offers, the MacBook Air can be grabbed at an approximate value of Rs 38,490.

The next deal for Apple MacBook Air is available on the Paytm Mall. The e-commerce platform is running its Maha Cashback Sale that focuses on the huge cashback deals on several products. The price the MacBook Ais listed at is Rs 65,999, however, the website is giving a cashback of Rs 10,000 straight away on the purchase when the buyer applies the promo code ‘LAPTOP10000’.

After deducting the amounts under all the offers, the MacBook Air can be purchased at Rs 53,499. However, if you count the vouchers available with the purchase, the benefits go up to Rs 5,000 more.

The third e-commerce platform Amazon India is also giving away many offers on the purchase of MacBook Air.
