The official online store called the Airtel Shop and can be found at shop.airtel.com. The company’s online shop offers telecom services along with products like smartphones, mobile phones, mobile and broadband plans, Digital TV services etc. You’ll find all the popular mobile brands at your online Airtel shop including Apple, Samsung, Nokia Sony, LG, HTC and BlackBerry. To offer better services, the company has partnered with online retailers such as; Infibeam and Buildabazaar.com.
According to a recent report of the IAMAI (Internet and Mobile Association of India) has suggested that, India’s e-commerce market has grown over 500 percent in the past three years and even growing at an average rate of 70 percent per annum. It’s expected that, Airtel and Infibeam’s partnership will probably treat as a game-changer of Indian e-commerce sector.
Airtel has decided to offer up to 33% discount on mobile phones with exclusive Airtel plans for example; 500MB free 3G data for 1 month on select phones. Here are some good deals; you can currently grab your favorite Samsung Galaxy Note with double benefit on 3G recharge for just Rs. 32,700/-, while the Nokia Lumia 800 can be yours for just Rs. 23,338/- with 2GB of 3G data per month for 4 months.

Even more they are also selling digital TVs along with offer broadband connections. They also offer some cash back opportunity for example; Rs. 500/- cashback on new broadband connections and Rs. 250/- cashback on new digitalTV connections. Like all other popular online stores, Airtel Shop is also offering some great benefits to its customers like; Cash on delivery (COD), payment by cheque /cash/draft, net-banking, credit / debit card, cash card, mobile payments, EMI offers are also available.
Really the offers are very good but the choices are less. But one thing Airtel doing right that, they are offering products at a fairly competitive price than other online stores. I’ve noticed that, most of the products are coming with a lesser or quite competitive price. I found Airtel shop is currently listed the LG Optimus Sol E730 for just Rs. 16,403/-, while one of the India’s popular online retailer Flipkart is offering it for Rs. 16990/-, which is nearly 500 rupees lower than the listing price at Flipkart. Whatever it may be, one thing is sure that customers are going to be benefited due to these great steps by companies.
