Last December I was looking to buy my first smartphone. I wanted to purchase it online because it's always economical that way and reliable too if you get it from trusted and popular websites. My budget was upto Rs.12k, and I wanted to get the best android phone out of it, so my 1st choice was Micromax Canvas series.
In the middle of the month, choosing which one to buy from that series, I encountered something called GOSF... the Greatest Online Shopping Festival, a Google initiative, on its second day of running out of total 3 offer days. Researching it more, I discovered some really great cashbacks, discounts and bargains offered by almost all of the online retailers.
By that time, I had made up my mind for Canvas HD A116 white. So I looked for the best discount under GOSF on Flipkart, Infibeam, Tradus, Snapdeal, Indiaplaza, Saholic, etc. Flipkart was offering a cashback of 10% on some credit card transactions under GOSF, while on Infibeam I encountered a much better offer of direct discount of Rs.2000 from the selling price of the phone. Hence on the last day of GOSF, I went to my friend's quarters and using his credit card got it for just around Rs. 10,150/- (using my blog affiliate link too).
But if I had known about GoPaisa that time, my search would have been optimized better. Still better late than never, I plan to use their site's discounts, coupons, bargains for any online shopping in the time to come.
