I generally don't buy from India, someone in the family and friends keeps going back & forth from Dubai. I just make them get 2,10lbs packets at once.
And I know one of the ON's distributors. He provides me 5/10lbs packets with importer slip and verifiable authenticateon code for good prices.
Healthkart etc charge stupid prices.
So how much does is cost in general

ooof should've ordered the second iPhone from here there - had HDFC too. I didn't realise the price was being offered elsewhere as well, I ordered the second one also on Flipkart without any extra card discount.

 

can't cancel and order from RD now, its already out for delivery, will be here in a couple hours I guess

From sources like Healthkart, anywhere between 11-14k/10lbs. 

From the distributor I know, 9500/10lbs.

From Dubai, 6500-6800/10lbs.

yep. usually its one bank partner, they have 2 lined up this time.

happy they had Axis, I think I'm the only person in this country without an ICICI card :fear1:

wish I had it though, could've gotten bank discount on the second iPhone purchase as well.

PS. Airpods Pro deal on Amazon was pretty sweet. Got it at 15K/- after HDFC discount.

It looks like most deals on FK/Amz are still active? was that mad rush at midnight all a prank?

Or have I missed something, have prices increased?

How did you get airpods pro for 15? What was listing price

Haha thank you. One phone is for my dad, and the airpods pro is for my mom.

That was the plan initially, I only bought one for myself because the price was quite good.

 

A bit off-topic, but I still don't feel 100% right about this.

1. Its on my parents money. Since I'm still studying, I don't have money enough to spend on an iPhone.

2. I had to buy a phone later this year anyway, was gonna go for 5A. Only bought cuz deal was solid, and parents encouraged to go for it.

3. I have been on sub 10K phones forever. I have had "friends" who are complete pricks, walking price-tags, boasting about their iPhone purchases (on their parent's money as well).

Saying stupid sh*t like "apple logo means you have class" or "koi gareeb ko iPhone dilao". absolute wankers.

Just because I can afford it doesn't mean I have to purchase it.

 

I did not want to buy an iPhone before because I did not want to be like these idiots. But I think my mentality defines it better than the actual purchase itself.

I am not "friends" with these idiots anymore, though I still see them on a daily basis in society campus.


Now that you have it, enjoy the phone and don’t be a prick like them.

Had to hear this from my friends too who always bought Peti-Pack phones and i always buy used. Today i have a business and they are barely managing it. I would say don’t bother 😇

hmmmm idk if that will work, don't think FK will just go with it and refund. 

Its not their fault as such - I just didn't know RD was also offering same price with card discount.

 

FK had all the buzz with this pricing tbh. Anyway I don't think its going to work that way, probably just take it.

Its natural bud, once you start earning, treat your parents then :P. Plenty of time for that. I've always had this guilt as well. Just try to research whatever you're buying, spend weeks doing it. I bother tons of people and know all pros and cons before buying anything. And if there's a crazy deal, its perfect!

If your parents encouraged you to go for it, then enjoy the phone :) What's more important you have this realisation, it'll go a long way. And as someone already mentioned, as long as you're not a prick like them, which I don't think you would be considering you already have had this important realisation, its all cool! Thank god you're not friends with those anymore, such people are too toxic.

Everything has its own time! So try not to feel guilty, easier said than done, but there's always a time for everything! Once you start earning, treat them!

 

 

EDIT:

Guys any idea if anyone's gonna offer the iPad pro M1 lower than the current 65.9k on Amazon?

I do consume much of it, but I don't delete. 1080p gets replaced with 4k, 4k with remux etc. 

I use a Windows program to generate searchable file names, uploaded to my Google drive. Easily search for what you want to re-watch, plug the HDD in and voila ! :D

Oh, I guess your are not married yet 🤣

I guess I had better friends. Oh wait, I had none 😬 Kidding but thankfully the company I had were too middle class like me and grounded, so no such influence or opinion. It also varies city to city, I mean my city, Kolkata, is not really known for extravagant lifestyle anyways.

I don’t have a desktop gaming PC. I am looking for a monitor to connect to my Dell XPS 13 inch laptop. My main uses would be to watch TV shows, YouTube, office work and playing indie games on my laptop.

 

So, I am looking for a 1440p IPS panel which has great colors. 60fps would be sufficient for me.

 

I am considering this monitor. Let me know your views about 

 

1) Image quality, colors etc

 

2) Sharpness with 1440p on a 32 inch monitor

also if you have other suggestions, please let me know 

Then the one you shared might be better for your requirement. Check reviews.
