Default SnapDeal now selling car audio (JBL, Auditor, Infinity, Focal etc.)

Hey all,

I recently got a mail from snapdeal offering various deals on Audio Equipment.

They seem to have plenty of brands in offering although im not sure how many options they have within those brand names.

They also seem to be offering products with and option of EMI. And are providing free installation in 17 cities .

Have a look :-

Are the prices on the higher side ?

I guess rates are ok.

Any idea how free installation is going to work? Do you visit the showroom with the product?

^ they have a tie up with Carnation, promoted by an ex-maruti suzuki MD. Once you receive the products, you need to fix up an appointment with them to get the installations done. Not sure about the quality of installation though.

IIRC Snapdeal is not a e-retailer like Flipkart or eBay. Snapdeal only channelizes deals offered by actual sellers, whether the b&m kind or the e kind. It stands to reason that both have to make money in the deals, so one cannot expect something cheaper.

One has to be truly lazy to rely on e-buying in India, other than for someone in a small town where there is not a single accessories seller within 100Km. Anyone having access to a shop should actually go to the shop physically and hear ICE products.

The physical channels are usually cheaper than the e-channels, even if one accounts for the transportation cost to the shop is a smaller location.

I just checked the prices there; all the prices after discount are around 500 rs more than what you can get in the market in Delhi. Some are more expensive on the website. And again if you buy from the market you get free installation and you just pay for the ancillaries that you use.

Snapdeal will now sell Mahindra two-wheelers!

Quote:
After purchasing the vehicle online, the customers will be contacted by the auto maker for required documents and will collect the same from them as per the customer’s convenience, it added.

“Customers can choose to pay for the vehicle either at one go or avail three/six month EMI options (0% interest)... The USP of this offer is a flat discount of Rs6,000 on the vehicle,” the company said.
Bajaj tried the online route a few years ago, failed and quietly buried it.

Snapdeal doesn't sell anything. They only advertize deals offered by dealers on anything.

I recently bought JVC KD-X80BT Head unit from Snapdeal. Saved almost Rs. 4000 plus phenomenal service from snapdeal. Got the product delivered in 4 business days. I opted for COD option though!

Did you get it installed from snap deal or did you get it done else where?
I think they offer some kind of a at your door installation at a very nominal extra cost.

JBL itself is selling online with warranty through their website.

Snapdeal, as already mentioned does not sell by itself. Whatever sold there is by authorized sellers with B&W. If the seller in snapdeal is an authorized JBL dealer, will JBL not honour the warranty
