The pilot launch of the Flipkart Plus is already here (which will be available for everyone from 15th of August) and we are not happy with the way Flipkart handles the Flipkart Plus subscription and how it actually works.
How to get Flipkart Plus Membership?
According to Flipkart app, I need to have 50 Flipkart coins to join Flipkart Plus membership programme. Getting 50 coins is once again quite complex.
Going by the terms and conditions, Flipkart will credit each coin for a purchase of an item on Flipkart worth Rs 250. Ex: If you buy an item which is worth Rs 1000, Flipkart will reward you with 4 Flipkart coins. Additionally, Flipkart only offers a maximum of 10 coins on a single order. So, even if you buy a smartphone worth Rs 30,000 you will receive a maximum of 10 Flipkart coins.
To get 50 Flipkart coins, one has to spend a minimum amount of Rs 12,500. Do note that one has to make at least 5 separate purchases on Flipkart worth Rs 2500 or more to get 50 Flipkart coins.
Flipkart will not consider the previous purchases made on the platform and no Flipkart coins will be provided for the same and users have to make fresh shopping to get Flipkart coin.
After collecting 50 Flipkart coins, a user can get Flipkart Plus membership by redeeming those points.
