Only three weeks after hitting the store shelves in India, the Galaxy Note 20 is already available at a significant discount as part of the newly announced “Samsung Days.” The pre-festive promotion allows you to avail a flat Rs 9,000 price drop in combination with a bank cashback worth another Rs 6,000 for HDFC card holders. Consequently, Samsung’s stylus-equipped flagship is available at only Rs. 62,999 ($855) from Samsung.com and the company’s very own Experience stores in the country.
The promotional period runs from today through Wednesday, September 23rd. And an equivalent of a $200 price drop makes the Galaxy Note 20 appear like a way more sensible purchase as well. Because while the device is quality, it was clearly priced to make the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra look better.
The first of many Galaxy Note 20 discounts to come
Needless to say, expect many more discounts on the Galaxy Note 20 family in the coming months. Not just because the series’ original pricing leaves a lot of room for such promotional activities, but also due to the steadily rising competition. Right now, Indian consumers are also able to take advantage of a major Microsoft 365 discount if they purchase either the Galaxy Note 20 or Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
Meanwhile, this promotion is yet another reason for third-party resellers to be unhappy with Samsung. But as the company continues focusing on driving its online sales, it makes sense for it to focus on direct-to-consumer channels. In any case, if you’re on the fence with the Galaxy Note 20, don’t feel pressured by this promotion as more are bound to follow in the coming months.
