Flipkart has yet again arrived with its Big Billion Day Sale. The online retail giant has in fact gone ahead and revealed that its next big sale, in anticipation of India’s 72nd Independence Day, would be held between August 10-12, 2018. Also, even if the offers haven’t yet been revealed, Flipkart has announced that it would be definitely holding blockbuster deals, price crash offers, rush hour deals, The Freedom Hour, and hourly deals during the 72-hour sale period. Amazon India is also, in fact, conducting its Freedom Sale that kicks off a day earlier, on August 9.

Apart from that, a ‘rush hour’ with ‘revolutionary deals’ would be held between 12 am and 2 am on August 10, i.e, at the start of the Flipkart sale.

Other than that, hourly deals would be held during the entirety of the 72-hour period, similar to the Lightning deals that have previously been held during Amazon India’s sales. Lastly, a ‘Freedom Countdown’ would be present on all three days of the Flipkart sale, between 7:47 pm and 8:18 pm, with 31 minutes of price drops on products across categories.
