Flipkart's Big Billion Day sale has started today, and according to the company's press statement, there are a lot of great offers for consumers. Some on the list include: items at price of Re 1, Upto 30 percent off on smartphones, Laptops starting Rs 15,000, 50 percent off on fashion & perfumes and toys.
And while these do sound a like a tempting deal, not every consumer was having a good time on Flipkart.
According to the reactions on Twitter, the sale hasn't lived up to the expectations of consumers. There are complaints about products going out of stock, getting the 404 error on the site and people learning about the "no refunds and cancellations" clause as being part of the items sold in the sale. Interestingly both Snapdeal and Amazon, rivals to Flipkart are also offering their own sales and deals.
Many consumers took to Twitter to mock the sale and to complain about the 404 error. Some joked that Flipkart was playing hard to get like an ex-girlfriend, while others noted that Flipkart had made IRCTC look better in comparison.
Check out a collection of tweets:

So, Flipkart is giving 44% off on Half Girlfriend. Which of course makes it just slightly over a Quarter Girlfriend. — Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) October 6, 2014
'Sold out' is to Flipkart what "Please try again later" is to IRCTC. #BigBillionDay
