On Flipkart, you’re sure to get the best deals and discounts on electronics, appliances, furniture and clothing.

But, like most of us, if you’re hoping for a more profitable way to use your old smartphone, don’t worry, the Flipkart Buyback Guarantee has your back. Read on to understand how you can make your brand-new smartphone both affordable and profitable.

No more second thoughts about buying a new smartphone

The biggest concern for smartphone enthusiasts when buying a new model is what to do with their existing device, which is still relatively new and efficient. With buyback guarantee, your existing smartphone will not only be in great hands, but will also help reduce the cost of your new smartphone.

The Buyback Guarantee means that Flipkart provides an assurance to purchase your current smartphone from you at a pre-fixed amount. In addition to giving you the ideal exchange value, Flipkart will make sure you receive a guaranteed price for the same phone, when you buy your next smartphone on Flipkart.

For example, let’s take the Samsung On Nxt and the Samsung Galaxy S8. You can avail a buyback guarantee for your On Nxt for a policy price of Rs. 199. This provides an assured value for the device, which is Rs. 6,000. Now, if you wish to buy a Samsung Galaxy S8, you can sell your On Nxt to Flipkart for the value of Rs. 6,000, and reduce the cost of S8 from Rs. 57,900 to Rs. 51,900*!

There is another advantage. You no longer have to worry about the original cost price of your current phone. Continuing with the example of the Samsung Galaxy On Nxt, you can check its current price, which is Rs. 14,900. With Buyback Guarantee and a policy price of Rs. 199, the effective price of the same device becomes as affordable as Rs. 9,099!

Buyback Guarantee ensures your dream smartphone is no longer beyond your reach.

  • The smartphone you return should have an undamaged screen, and must be in working condition. Also, you must return the original box, charger, and accessories if you wish to claim the full Buyback Guarantee value.
  • The smartphone on which you want to claim the Buyback Guarantee should not be older than 6 months to 8 months.
  • The discounted rate is available for your new smartphone only if its price exceeds the cost of your current device.
