Samsung On 7 Pro: Similarly, Amazon is offering Rs 1,200 off on the Samsung On 7 Pro, which is currently available for Rs 9,990.

It’s Worth Spending a Bit More on Protecting Your Device and Appliance
So if you’ve already made up your mind about what to buy between Oct 17 – 20 during the Amazon ‘Great Indian Festival’, it also makes sense to give your new device/applaince complete protection with an Extended Warranty or Damage Protection Plan. There’s often a misconception that spending on these plans are way expensive and a waste of money. But the fact is, these plans hardly cost 5% of the device/appliance price and they extend its life by at least one or two years.
The OnsiteGo Extended Warranty and Damage Protection plans depend on the price of your product. Once you purchase the plan, it ensures hassle free service with free pick, repair and drop, at no extra cost. All repairs are done at the brand authorized service centers across India. It also offers a timely repair or replacement guarantee. If you plan to buy a large appliance like a TV, fridge or washing machine during the Amazon ‘Great Indian Festival’, you need not worry as OnsiteGo offers free at-home service for large appliances. This means, an executive will be sent to your location to repair your appliance. All this at just a fraction of the device’s cost is not at all a bad deal. You also just have to pay once while buying the plan, after which repairs are completely cashless.
Confused Which One to Choose? Extended Warranty or Damage Protection?
We’d recommend buying both, to fully cover your device/appliance after the expiry of the manufacturer’s warranty. Here’s what the plans cover…
1) Extended Warranty: This is an extension of the manufacturer’s warranty by 1 or 2 additional years with added benefits. The plan is applicable for all devices and appliances.
2) Spills & Drops Protection Plan/Damage Protection Plan: This can save you from all the problems associated with fixing your device after any physical or liquid damage. The plan is available for smart phones, tablets, cameras and laptops for a maximum of 1 year.
