New Delhi, Oct. 30 :UC Browser from UCWeb, Alibaba Mobile Business Group, has tied up with leading ecommerce company Amazon.in for an exciting 14 day ‘Diwali Shopping Carnival’, offering attractive discounts and sales to users ahead of Diwali.

Through this exclusive partnership, running through November 2-15, UC Browser, India’s No.1 mobile browser with over 51 percent market share (as per StatCounter) will offer additional discounts to its lucky users on items listed on Amazon.in across various categories. On offer are items from several categories, including mobile phones, laptops, beauty, personal care, home decor, apparel and more.

The Diwali Shopping Carnival is open to users of UC Browser who will win discount coupons, gift cards and surprising prize vouchers in UC Browser’s ongoing Diwali contest. A lucky coupon winner can avail an additional three to five percent discount over and above the offer on Amazon.in. The gift card and vouchers can be used for purchases on Amazon.in.

Announcing the partnership, Kenny Ye, MD, UCWeb India, Alibaba Mobile Business Group, said, “As is our annual practice, we want to be part of the festive cheer by offering deep discounts and exclusive offers for shoppers across all age groups.

This year, we have gone a step further and tied up with Amazon.in, in an exclusive deal. UC Browser users and last-minute shoppers can now benefit with additional discounts across thousands of products on Amazon.in.”
