Is the 15% of across all products or is it for selected products only. Any clue?

I would love to believe its across products but don't know for sure. Am sure there will be a max cap on cash back too. Had noticed a 'max benefit of 1750/-' in one of the site, cant recollect which one.

Both are good cameras:

Nikon 3300D has more mega pixels if that matters to you.

For Canon - I would say that instead of 1200D one may seriously consider the 600D or 700D due to a minor but extremely helpful feature - The Swivel Screen.

This really helps in situations when you quickly wanna capture something without lying down on the floor / road and without getting into awkward positions. (believe me you really will have to lie down on the ground to take good shots

Another option would be to buy the camera body only without the stock lenses and then buy some quality lens(es) of your choice.

So example - you could go for the body of a 700D and fix a nice tamron/sigma lens to it.

After putting faith in Mr Amir Khan have ordered goods from snap deal. Little bit nervous as have heard horror stories of people receiving bricks instead of mobiles in their packages. Keeping fingers crossed. This is my first order with them. Any idea with standard delivery how fast they deliver? Expected deliver dates seem next week.

I regularly get stuff from SnapDeal and have never faced any such horror stories and it takes them around 3-4 working days to deliver from the date of shipping.

On the 9th I had ordered a set of Wheel covers for my colleague's WagonR and it was delivered on 11th night at 9pm. I had used COD though.

Got some really good stuff at attractive discounts from Myntra last night. Logged in exactly at midnight to pick up the some shirts, trousers and blazers.

MRP = 27.x thousand
Cost to me = 11.x thousand.

All, please note - Amazon cashback to be credited 'by Jan 2016'
So, you will pay the price you see on screen now & get cashback 2.5months later.

I ordered the Mi4 @ 12499 (500 off by using freecharge offer)
500 cash back on my HDFC maestro Debt card.

So, effective price 12K

--

Ordered Mi Pad on Amazon @ 9999 INR.
will get 1490 INR cashback (by Jan 2016) i.e. 15% on HDFC card
(Mipad fit my requirements, but was beyond my budget of 10K.)

Cheers,

Ace.

By Joe, Myntra is fast.

I placed an order after midnight yesterday and they attempted the delivery an hour or so back. I wasn't at home so requested a reschedule.

I was eyeing a vacuum cleaner on amazon.in http://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B00J...A14UQ4H17XUX90 and over the last 2 days the price has cut down by 1000 rupees.

From 7495 it came down to 7095 yesterday and today its listed at 6495. Is it the sale effect? I really want this product but not sure whether waiting for another day or two or maybe till 17 Oct is a good idea.

Any of you guys know how these sale tactics work?
