American Express rebate, trade-in offer highlight deals
Apple is making some moves to make its iPhone line more affordable in India. Deals sponsored by Apple with partners include credit card rebates, trade-in discounts, subsidies, and modified payment plans. As a result of the plans, analysts expect "significant growth" in the region.
Indian customers who purchase a new iPhone using an American Express credit card will be paid 10 percent of the purchase price back in cash, capped at 6,000 rupees ($111). The American Express deal ends on June 10, and is applicable to the iPhone 4, 4S or 6.
Students who trade in old smartphones no more than three years old will be paid 7,777 rupees ($144). Non-students are given 7000 rupees ($130).
