The festival season is here and it's a good time for bargain hunting on shopping websites. Whether you want to pamper yourself or buy gifts, these websites are a great place to avail good discounts on a range of products.
However, confusing price lists, less than reliable comparison charts and endless searches for the right thing to spend your money on can have you confused. So, we give you a lowdown on some of the most convenient online shopping and gift sites.
The best thing about Flipkart is that it does not charge you for the delivery of your purchase and it offers discounts (up to 35 per cent) on new book titles. Once you select your book, you can give your shipping address and proceed to checkout for payment or opt for a cash-on-delivery.
We ordered a PC game DVD - at a 25 per cent discount - which was delivered within five working days, while a hardcover book ordered via cash-on-delivery arrived within 48 hours. The packaging used was excellent - the book arrived in a paperback-sized cardboard box and the DVD in a scratch-resistant cover.
Verdict: Expect to have a good experience, which may prompt you to visit the site again
