Flipkart kicked off
its 'In-a-day Guarantee' service with some selective Indian cities last year. The online retailer has now announced that the service is now available in 50 cities.
The Internet retailer giant announced the news on Twitter and said, "The wait is now over! In a day guarantee in 50 Indian cities at Rs. 50! Offer valid for 2 days."
The company as an introductory offer has slashed the price of its 'In-a-day Guarantee' service to Rs. 50 from Rs. 90 for two days on orders above Rs. 5,050.
For those unaware, the 'In-a-day Guarantee' service initially was available to customers in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Noida and Pune. Now the offer includes Kolkata, Agra, Ahmedabad, Ajmer, Ambala, Bhatinda, Bhubaneshwar, Chandigarh, Chandannagar, Coimbatore, Davangere, Durgapur, Erode, Faridabad, Goa, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Hissar, Hosur, Howrah, Hubli, Jaipur, Kanchipuram, Kharagpur, Kota, Ludhiana, Madurai, Meerut, Nagpur, Nashik, Navi Mumbai, Panipat, Panjim, Patiala, Pondicherry, Salem, Secunderabad, Thane, Thanjavur, Tiruvallur, Tiruppur, Tiruchirappalli and Vellore.
In April, Flipkart also introduced a 'Same-day Guarantee' delivery service in select cities, which can be availed by paying an additional Rs. 200 per item and is only available for orders placed before noon.
Earlier in June, Flipkart announced an annual subscription service for frequent shoppers, called Flipkart First. The service is available for interested customers for a subscription fee of Rs. 500 per year.
Notably, the Flipkart First service is similar to the Amazon Prime premium subscription service in the US.
