How To Strike The Best Deal While Shopping Online

Online Shopping Logos1
Festive season in India has already started and online shopping websites like Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal seem to be in no mood to leave any stone unturned to maximise their sales this festive season. Flipkart for example, came up with massive discounts on its Big Billion Day sale on October 6. It offered some of the products like Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and Nokia Lumia phones at 90% discount. It even sold many items for just Re. 1. Flipkart however received a lot of criticism both from customers as well as from the manufacturers. Amazon India is also running a Diwali Damaka week on its website, while Snapdeal is trying to woo the customers by offering rock bottom prices as a part of its Diwali Bumper Sale.

Okay, it dates back to sometime in 2011 when I first noticed this bug in Windows Live Mail desktop client (and it hasn’t been fixed till now).
