Under this offer, customers who bought any LAVA phone, experienced the product for 30 days and in case they did not like the product for any reason; returned the phone within 30 days from the date of purchase and got their money back! Highlight of the challenge was on-the-spot refund for their returned handset; which LAVA executed on-ground seamlessly for customers.
