Flipkart Craziest Deals

Hi Fellow shoppers,

I am glad to see you people hooked on to this particular deal from flipkart which is running between 4pm to 6pm today i.e 22nd sept 2014.  Flipkart offering deals from Rs 1. Also, there are some crazy deals with 90% flat OFF , 99% OFF on MRP or Flat @ 99 etc.
As flipkart claimed regarding the sales of its Xiaomi mobile phones mi3 and redmi 1S which gets sold out in few seconds on deal opening day.

I can think of two different aspects of this deal as they are also getting sold out in seconds :-
Firstly, It seems flipkart is taking due advantage of Xiaomi sales and selling out all the years old stocks @ 90% OFF sale rather than throwing them away. It may also be a trial test if they can sell age old products from their stock. :-D
Secondly, I feel like they have switched to some new server or trying a load test on the server by giving away this deal and who knows they have restricted per item sale limit to just 10 or 100, which will let them know the server load capacity.
The saddest part of flipkart is that it is the best rated online store in India but after switching themselves  to multi-vendor e-commerce site, most of the common items are not available to basic Pincodes of India where any newly launched website can deliver with ease.


Apparently, it can also be said that they are promoting the FLIPKART FIRST by selling offers @ Re 1 , as being a normal customer you will have to pay a delivery charge of Rs 40 which is applicable on orders below Rs 500. (When flipkart was launched it was selling items with free shipping on no minimum purchase value, I personally bought many a times during that period) This can be easily seen in the promotional mail of this particular offer sent by marketing team to the customers which shows a flipkart first link at the bottom.


I didn't buy anything from this deal but saw every product before getting sold out.
They were selling cheap chinese Deos @ Re 1, Aerial7 tank Headphones @ 90% OFF, live tech headsets @ Re 1, unbranded wallet (men) @ Re 1. Joma shoes 70% OFF etc.
Whatever the motive behind this kind of crazy deal by flipkart it is a win-win situation for both and I wish flipkart keeps offering such deals in future also for their customers and they include more delivery pincodes under delivery areas list. I have seen flipkart removing many smaller items also from the delivery area list which were previously available before it getting multi-vendor.
