Though you cannot completely compensate the difference, atleast some big difference can be brought if you are ready to search for best macbook deals before you buy.
Ways to Buy Macbook in India
Purchase Apple Products Offline
Walk to the Apple Retail Stores (Reliance iStores or Digital Store or Chroma Store) to choose your favorite macbook or imac. Get the prices and compare them before you choose the place to purchase. The place makes no difference as Apple warranty is covered anywhere for Macbooks. Only iPhone has Limited Warranty, where you got to take the phone to the country and store you bought from.
Purchase Apple Products Online
Growing ecommerce industry also brings great growth when we see the online shopping carts these days. eBay, Letsbuy and Infibeam. Remember, you have to wait for festival seasons or any events to see some great deals and discounts on macbook and other apple products when you purchase using any of the mentioned shopping website. The deals and discounts are ofcourse not given by the Apple directly. Its given by the Retailers to push some good number of sales.
Macbook Student Discounts and Offers
Apple products generally don’t get festive offers. The only offer which is open around the year is Students Offer. Apple gives away special discount of 6% or 12% (depends) for the college students. All you need is a valid college id card proof and a copy of any bill paid to the college.
Since Apple gives international warranty for MacBooks you could ask your friend/relative to get a macbook at a cheaper rate for you from foreign countries.
Letsbuy.com and infibeam.com have similar kind of 6% off for MacBooks available for everyone. But Ebay India has got some really cool sellers who sell at very less price. Ebay has a Deals of the week section where you could find a Macbook Pro with deal price at any given time.You could save up to 15% in the deals of the week section. But you will have to wait, check frequently and grab the right one.
Moreover Ebay has official Festive prizes in which it gives away exciting gifts for people purchasing products on Ebay. At present Ebay is running a Republic Day offer, where you can get a Samsung Galaxy Y for purchasing above 50k or Samsung Galaxy S2 for purchasing above 2 lacs.
Trust No Body, Read Reviews and Feedbacks
It is not just for the eBay, for any other shopping carts that you choose to purchase from, make sure you have completely gone through the reviews about the seller and the products he have sold. Trying to purchase a product from new seller is totally upto your risk and do take up power seller and star ratings of seller to decide who will be the right one and trusted one. Because once you received the product you may have to send it back to them, if it didnt match your requirements. The courier charge is totally yours and you get the refund for only what you have paid. Why wasting some hundreds or thousands with courier ? you could buy some accessories to your laptop using that.
- Its a general fear to make high cash transaction in Ebay. Few tips to make sure the seller is Trustable.
- Look for the percentage of positive feedback the seller has got.
- Make sure he has already sold similar Apple/MacBooks before
- Take time to read the reviews given by the previous buyers
- Send a personal message to seller and ask if he could deliver the product to your current location
- Don’t fall for the cheap price, be aware of the delivery time of the product
- If something goes wrong with the delivery, then use Security / Resolution Center to record all the conversation that happens between you and the seller to make the refunding process go smooth.
