Shopping @ Indiatimes


Hi All,

I was just browsing when i saw that indiatimes is offering additional 10% festival discounts on almost all TVs, be is LCD/LED/Plasma.
Is there any catch on it? It clearly says offering manufacturer warranty and home delivery.
Is it worth buying from the website?

Please suggest.

Thanks,

Re: Shopping @ Indiatimes

Not sure about now, but 5-6 years ago I had bought a phone from them. Theoretically the warranty would be there, but practically you may be able to avail it or not is not guaranteed. A few gotchas that you should keep in mind before making an electronics purchase from them.

Who is the seller (Indiatimes or 3rd party)? If 3rd party forget about warranty. Indiatimes will assume no responsibility after the sales. 3rd party may or may not actually pass you the warranty. Check beforehand.

Check for the availability of the service centers of the brand you are buying. In case you land up with something faulty, their after sales support is (at least it was 5-6 years ago) pathetic.

All in all, if you can find similar deals from other places, go for them. I don't recommend Indiatimes for electronics shopping.

Re: Shopping @ Indiatimes

I suggest stay away. If you have a very good bargaining skills you will get a better price with local dealer with a sure warranty.

Re: Shopping @ Indiatimes

I have not shopped at indiatimes. A friend tried buying the 51e550 as they were giving 5K discount and had a hard time as it came cracked or some such problem. Also most of the non serious etailers do not own anything - they just ask some dealer to send it to you. Hence it seems like if one wants to etail - stick to the ones whose full time business is retailing

Indiatimes , Timtara - Not Recommended (timtara and tradus also for that dont but its not good at all..)
Flipkart , Infibeam - Recommended ( I have shopped many things ranging from mobiles , books , batteries etc and was never disappointed)
