Flipkart Turns 10 and Other Brands Join the Celebration on Twitter
E-commerce portal Flipkart celebrates its 10th birthday this year and we couldn’t be more excited. After all, it was Flipkart that introduced us to the delights of online shopping and we’ve been hooked on it ever since.
As part of its 10th birthday celebrations, they are having a Big 10 Sale from 14th to 18th May and mind you, this not just any other sale. It’s not the usual ‘deals and discounts’ fare that you come across. It’s bigger and better! You are getting cashbacks and upto 90% off on select products. That’s not all. You stand to win free foreign trips and gift vouchers too. You can also make the lowest unique bid and win big. Exciting isn’t it?
Now Flipkart decided to take the excitement to another level. They tweeted out an open challenge asking their fans and followers as to how they would celebrate their ‘Big 10’.
Swiggy was sporting enough to accept the challenge and joined in the celebration.
The food start-up that considers Flipkart an inspiration came up with this.
Flipkart readily acknowledged Swiggy’s ‘epic’ response.
No sooner, Ola responded to the challenge with a really cool gif.
Flipkart was just more than impressed with Ola’s response.
And just as we were enjoying the friendly banter between brands, Cleartrip too joined in.
Here’s how they went “the extra mile.”
….and this is what Flipkart had to say
If brands had jumped in the celebrations, how could users be far behind. Here’s what they had to say about Flipkart’s Big 10 Sale and its camaraderie with Swiggy, Ola and Cleartrip.
Well, these Twitter exchanges have only made us all the more excited for the Big 10 Sale. We’re sure you are too. So cancel all your appointments between 14th and 18th May and get ready to go on an online shopping spree.
