The iPhone XR was launched in 2018 and is one of the latest iPhones in the market, apart from the iPhone Xs. The iPhone XR, which is available for Apple users in India from October 2018, has now had a very large drop in its India price from today. The new price makes the India price of the iPhone XR is even lesser than the USA price of USD 815 (approximately INR 56,000). I’ve taken the price for New York state for comparison.
The price of iPhone XR 64 GB variant yesterday on Amazon.in was INR 69,999/-
With effect from today, April 5, 2019, Apple has reduced the price to INR 59,990 for the iPhone XR. That makes it a direct savings of INR 17,000 as compared to the published price.
But, you can get it even cheaper. Apple has announced a partnership with HDFC Bank for a further cashback of 10% of the purchase price till June 30, 2019. Here are the T&C:
The limited period exclusive offer price of ₹53,900 is computed on the MRP of iPhone XR (64 GB) as reduced by (a) instant store discount of ₹17,011 and (b)10% cash back offered by HDFC Bank on usage of HDFC Bank Debit and Credit Cards. The instant store discount up to ₹17,011 is available against purchase of new iPhone XR from select Apple Authorised Resellers and stores only. The list of select Apple Authorised Resellers and stores is published at www.indiaistore.com. The 10% cashback is applied on the card transaction value, i.e. MRP minus the instant store discount. The offer of 10% cashback is also available on EMI transactions on HDFC Bank Debit and Credit Cards, on 12 and 24 month tenures only. The cash back offer is valid for transactions made using Brand EMI option on Pine Labs terminals. The cash back shall be credited within 120 business days from the last date of the transaction month on a best effort basis to all open and active card members’ accounts only.
However, you still stand to save more if you shop online with your HDFC Bank Credit Cards. Remember, the Smartbuy proposition is alive through April 2019.
So, assuming you hold an HDFC Diners Club Black Credit Card or an Infinia, you get a further 33% discount on these prices, although you get it in HDFC Bank Reward points, and these points can be used for travel bookings at INR 1 later.
|iPhone XR 64 GB||INR 59,900||INR 53,910||INR 40,133|
|iPhone XR 128 GB||INR 64,900||INR 58,410||INR 43,483|
|iPhone XR 256 GB||INR 74,900||INR 67,410||INR 50,183|
The offer shall be live only for a limited time and till stocks last. And now you know buying it online is still a better deal than buying it offline. So, if you’ve been waiting to spend that bonus that hits your account in April, this is a sweet deal.
So, if you are on the fence about a new iPhone, this iPhone XR HDFC offer is as sweet as it gets for the moment.
