This means that a consumer can buy the phone at Rs 3,999, after availing the full exchange discount. Buyers can also avail an extra discount of Rs 5% on Axis Bank credit cards.

There is a list of smartphones that are valid for the exchange offer. Since this discount depends on the model that users exchange with, it is interesting to note that the maximum discount of Rs 24,000 can be availed only by trading in an iPhone 6S, which is a higher-generation model than the iPhone 6. This means, to avail the maximum discount of Rs 22,000, a consumer needs to exchange his/her iPhone 6S with iPhone 6.
