The day one of the Amazon Great Indian Sale was blockbuster by all accounts. Amazon India released a statement on Monday evening that it was the “biggest day ever” for the company that officially entered the country a little over three years ago.
Amazon released the list of highest selling products on day one of the Great Indian Sale, and interestingly, it includes some products that were being sold at MRP, which underlines our belief that these big shopping festivals are more about signup up new users rather than offering killer deals to regular online shoppers.
The best selling products on the first day of the sale in the mobile and electronics category include the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, the Moto G4 Plus, the Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro, the JBL GO Bluetooth speaker, the Noble Skiodo 48-inches full-HD LED TV, and Panasonic TH 32 inches HD Ready LED TV.
The Xbox One didn’t make it to our top picks from Amazon Great Indian Sale day 1 because a successor is already out, Kinect is dead, and the unit hasn’t yet received a price cut in India to bring it at par with other markets, but that didn’t stop the likes of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag & Dance Central Spotlight bundles with Kinect available at Rs. 29,999 from increasing Amazon’s Xbox sales by 25 times on Monday. What do we know, right? McAfee software available starting at Rs. 99 saw a similar surge, according to Amazon India.
So what does the day two bring? If you are looking for great deals on mobiles, there’s some good news and some bad news. The bad news is there aren’t a whole lot of new deals going live today. The good news is that all of our top picks from yesterday in the mobiles category are still live, so you still have time to grab them. Here are some of our other picks from Day 2:

Here’s another set of deals that’ll be live for the duration of the sale. Amazon is offering discounts on its Kindle range of ebook readers, including the All New Kindle at Rs. 4,999, a fantastic price for anyone looking to buy their first e-book reader. If you have a little bit more to splurge, you can consider the Kindle Paperwhite with built-in light, which comes in Wi-Fi and 3G variants, both of which are available at a discount of Rs. 2,000. That isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen on these Paperwhite models, but a good deal if you need to buy one right now.
