Mera Cashback Sale: Paytm takes on Flipkart and Amazon with cashback heavy sale
Two of the heavyweights of Indian e-commerce, Flipkart and Amazon, are taking each other on with another round of shopping festivals. However, they are not the only players trying to cash in on the upcoming festive season. Paytm has joined the party with a four-day shopping event called Mera Cashback Sale (20-23 September), offering cashbacks of up to Rs 20,000. There are discounts on select products too.
The catch with cashbacks is that the amount is added to the user’s Paytm wallet post the purchase, and not a cashback on the credit card, for instance. You will be able to later use that cashback balance on Paytm to buy something else, send money to others, recharge prepaid phones, pay for apps on Google Play Store, book flight or movie tickets, and more. Here are some of the exciting deals on Paytm Mall.
