Xiaomi is a name you must be now familiar with. With it’s impressive smartphone lineup Xiaomi has made up a place for itself in the Indian market just as well as it has in China and none of the Indian brands could follow the examples set by Xiaomi. Their phones are not “cheap” but simply affordable. They have always been the best in build quality in the budget smartphone market. Xiaomi India is celebrating its 2nd anniversary with a 3-day carnival from July 20 to July 22 where there are special offers, deals, and discounts. Users will be able to buy select Mi phones and accessories for as low as ₹1 including discounts for other accessories. Moreover, the company has also launched a mobile game through which you will be eligible to get free coupons to purchase products from the Mi official store.
According to Xiaomi’s 2nd anniversary sale on the company’s events page, customers will be welcomed with the popular “Re. 1 Flash Deals,” “Price Drops,” “New Items,” “Special Offers” and “Non-Stop Deals.” Of all the offers, Xiaomi’s Re.1 flash deals are quite intriguing and it won’t be the first time for Xiaomi to host such a sale. However, the products available on the upcoming Re. 1 flash sale are entirely different from the ones offered the last time and are worth fighting for.
The page is a little overwhelming and a little less informative I feel so let me break it down into simpler readable form for you.
₹1 flash sales
This is probably the most exciting part of the promotion. At 2 PM local time, every day between July 20-22, Xiaomi will have 10 devices and 100 accessories available for just ₹1. Here’s what’s on offer each day:
- July 20th: 10 x Mi 5 & 100 x 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank
- July 21st: 10 x Redmi Note 3 & 100 x Mi Band (White LED)
- July 22nd: 10 x Mi Max & 100 x Mi Bluetooth Speaker
To be eligible for the flash sales, you need to go to the celebration website and share the promotion on your Facebook page. Otherwise, no flash sales for you! You’ll also need cat-like reflexes to get in before the other billion people click buy.
In addition to the Re. 1 flash deals, Xiaomi is also offering price cuts on some of its products. The company’s Mi Bluetooth Speaker will be available at a discounted price of Rs. 1,999 instead of Rs. 2,699 during Mi anniversary carnival. Also, lucky fans will begranted their wish-list by Hugo Barra on July 18. Fans must add the products to their Mi Wishlist and tell Barra why he must grant that wish. Lucky winners will be chosen and the products in his or her wish-list will be shipped.
