"Flipkart Festive Dhamaka" Days sale starts "October 24"

Flipkart has announced the second round of promotional sales from October 24. Called the Festive Dhamaka Days it will directly take on Amazon India's Great Indian Festival round two which will also start on the same day. More specifically, Flipkart will be hosting the Festive Dhamaka Days sale from October 24 to October 27. Flipkart Plus members will get early access -- much like Amazon Prime members -- starting from October 23, 9PM.

The Flipkart Festive Dhamaka Days sale announcement comes close on the heels of the announcement of the second wave of the Amazon Great Indian Festival sale that starts October 24. Moreover, this sale will begin for all the customers starting on October 24, unlike the Big Billion Days sale that opened for the Flipkart Plus members three hours earlier than the actual timings for the sale. However, it doesn’t mean that Flipkart Plus members won’t be able to enjoy the benefits such as free delivery for orders less than Rs 500.

The first wave of festive sales saw Flipkart and Amazon India both raking in large profits and clearly both the e-retail companies will be looking to continue the momentum in round 2 as well. Both Flipkart and Amazon India reportedly clocked $2 billion in revenue in their recently concluded Dussehra sales. Although both the companies don't divulge numbers, Flipkart said it has recorded "over 70 percent share of entire Indian e-commerce market in the 5 days Big Billions Day sale, matching scale with global marquee retail events."
