nearbuy announced the lucky winner today and we couldn’t be more jealous!

Last week, we announced in our article that nearbuy, India’s first hyper-local online platform, was giving one lucky winner the chance to watch Coldplay perform in Abu Dhabi on New Year’s Eve. The winner would get return flight tickets along with concert passes for two as the prize! And guess what, it’s a sold out show! Sounds like a deal right out of Santa’s sack, doesn’t it? All you had to do was register on or log in to your existing nearbuy account and buy the zero-priced offer. That is it! The lucky draw began on 5th December and ended today, i.e. the 21st of December. And finally the D-day arrived.

Lady luck has showered her love on Saurav Dasgupta and he was announced as the winner on nearbuy’s Facebook and Twitter page. He will get to invite one SPECIAL person to accompany him on this dream trip. If you aren’t jealous yet, just picture bringing in the new year with confetti exploding right out of the stage and Chris Martin dancing amid the shimmering sight. Check the announcement link right here.

As much as we can’t help but burn with jealousy, we’re happy for Saurav Dasgupta and his plus one. We wish them the happiest of new year and hope this trip is everything they imagined it to be like.

But for the rest of us, there is another great piece of news. nearbuy is also giving one lucky winner the opportunity to invite three friends along to lounge at The LaLiT Golf & Spa Resort in Goa! The trip is inclusive of return flight tickets and stay for three whole days! The property is situated across 85 acres of Goa’s coastline and is deeply influenced by the Baroque-Portuguese style of architecture.


All you have to do is log in or register on and purchase the zero-priced pass. It’s exactly the way you purchased the Coldplay NYE passes. Then, get three of your besties to buy the zero-priced pass as well and sit back, relax and hope you are the lucky one this time. The contest is running in full swing since the 28th of November and will end on the 31st of December. Your clock is ticking my friend. So register here.
