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.
But, you can get it even cheaper. In April, Apple had announced a partnership with HDFC Bank for a further cashback of 10% of the purchase price till June 30, 2019. However, you still stand to save more if you shop online with your HDFC Bank Credit Cards. Remember, the Smartbuy proposition is alive all this month.
But when you pay with an HDFC Bank credit card, you get another 10% instant discount, not even a cashback, on buying the phone online. That means, for the 64 GB phone, your net price comes to INR 53,910.
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.
|Variant||Price||Paid with HDFC CC||Paid w/ Infinia/DCB|
|iPhone XR 64 GB||INR 59,900||INR 53,910||INR 36,120|
|iPhone XR 128 GB||INR 64,900||INR 58,410||INR 39,134|
|iPhone XR 256 GB||INR 74,900||INR 67,410||INR 45,165|
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 HDFC iPhone XR offer is as sweet as it gets for the moment.
