It’s raining offers and discounts during the Diwali sale, as producers and sellers fight it out to attract maximum buyers jostling to grab the best deals. While shops are running extra hours and giving discounts and gifts to attract customers, e-commerce sites are competing with each other to give the best deal to lure more buyers.

While popular e-commerce sites like Amazon and Flipkart are offering up to 70-80 per cent discounts on select items, customers may still get more discounts and cashbacks!

This is possible because along with the sellers, banks and other organisations are also competing with each other to make customers use the payment instruments issued by them.

Bank Offers on Amazon

For example, if you make a minimum purchase of Rs 5,000 on Amazon, you may get 10 per cent additional instant discount up to Rs 1,500 by making the payment using credit cards of RBL Bank, Bank of Baroda, Federal Bank and AU Small Finance Bank. You may also get the same benefit by making payment using debit cards of RBL Bank and Federal Bank.

However, customers will get a 10 per cent instant discount up to Rs 750, if they make payments using the debit card of AU Small Finance Bank on a minimum purchase of Rs 5,000.

On the other hand, you may get an additional instant discount of 7.5 per cent on Amazon by availing the EMI transactions option offered by HSBC Credit Card.
