In addition to this, Vivo is also offering an additional discount of Rs. 1,000 on purchase made via select bank cards from ICICI Bank, SBI Bank, OneCard, IDFC Bank, Federal Bank, Yes Bank, Bank of Baroda, and IndusInd Bank credit card EMI transactions. This makes the effective price Rs. 14,999. However, the additional off is only valid till September 30.
On the other hand, the Vivo Y02t has received a price drop of Rs. 500, bringing down its price to Rs. 9,499, as compared to the launch price of Rs. 9,999, for the sole 4GB RAM and 128GB storage model. However, there is no additional bank offers on the purchase of this smartphone.
