Now would you believe that you can get the phone for just Rs 1,000 (Rs 999 to be precise)?
Well it is possible if you go by the Flipkart’s calculations.
Here’s how it works
The Oppo F7 (64 GB) costs Rs 22,990 but Flipkart under its current Big Shopping Days sales is offering Rs 1,000 discount. On top of that you could get an additional amount of Rs 4,090 on exchanging your old device. This brings the cost of device to Rs 17,900.
Now add 10 per cent additional discount if you purchase it through HDFC credit/debit card. The maximum discount you could avail is Rs 1,500 so that brings down the cost of F7 to Rs 16,400.
Now comes the masterstroke. Flipkart is offering assured buyback offer on F7 under which you will get an assured amount of Rs 15,401 after 6-8 months on F7. This means that the effective price of the Oppo F7 will be just Rs 999!
Do note that you will get the buyback amount only as a discount on the next phone purchase from Flipkart.
This means that you can have a new phone after six months.
The deal is currently live on Flipkart. Here’s a screenshot of the calculation mentioned above.
