Amazon Great India Sale – 11th May – 14th May
Earlier, this Diwali, both the players fought a battle by their sales named as Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale and Flipkart Big Billion Days Sale.

Looks like Amazon lost this battle. But game is not over yet, Amazon is ready to cover up the defeat in the last sale.
Kalyan Krishnamurthy, CEO (Flipkart) said : It’s not a sale, it is much bigger than that.
“Flipkart’s 10 years have been all about the Indian customer and we’ve received an immense amount of love and support over the past decade. The Big 10 sale is our biggest by far after Big Billion Days and it’s our way of thanking customers for that overwhelming response,”
Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos in an earnings call earlier this week reaffirmed that :
“the company is working hard on its Indian operations. He said Amazon.in is the fastest-growing and most-visited e-commerce destination in India, adding the company will continue to make technology and infrastructure investments in the country.”
People love discounts in India, if discounts offered are genuine and this sale will be massive and good for sellers to make up after the losses suffered by demonitisation, said by an Amazon seller.
