Various e-commerce platforms in India keep offering seasonal discounts frequently to clear old stocks. Flipkart is presently offering hefty discounts on electronics with its ‘Super Value Week.’ lasting until 24th June, 2018. While many popular smartphones are falling into the category of the discounted products, Google’s 2017 flagship, the Pixel 2, is one such offer that appears to be a steal.

However, with Flipkart’s offer, the Pixel 2 is available with immense benefits that bring the price down to as low as Rs 9,999. The discount combines the benefits from Flipkart’s flat discount, several offers from banks and Flipkart’s Buyback Guarantee program. Note that the Buyback Guarantee program costs an additional Rs 199 and can yield the maximum value for your smartphone within a period of six months from the date of purchase.
