The redemption window for mobile phones is from 12PM to midnight on October 6 while for other products the redemption will be allowed between 8PM to midnight.
The customers are allowed to choose Cash on Delivery (CoD) or Credit Card, Debit Card, Payment Wallets, Net-banking or E-Gift Vouchers, to complete the purchase during the redemption window. The pre-booking can be combined with other offers and discounts.
