IndiaiStore, the official website for Apple distributors in India, is trying to appeal to buyers by offering low-cost EMI schemes.
iPhone XS EMI Schemes
As per the EMI calculator on the page, the entry-level 64GB iPhone XS can be bought by forking over Rs 4499 per month for 24 months. That brings the total amount to Rs 107976, so you’ll be paying Rs 8076 more as interest.
As always, there are terms and conditions to this offer. The Rs 4499 figure is inclusive of a 5% cashback on Axis Bank and Citi credit cards. GST will be applied on the interest component of the EMI, over and above the EMI mentioned above.
If you want to buy the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max outright, an Axis Bank or Citi credit card will grant you 5x reward points. On the online side of things, Flipkart (iPhone XS/iPhone XS Max) is offering no-cost and low-cost EMI schemes. For instance, Axis Bank and Bajaj Finserv customers can avail no-cost EMI plans for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
