Xiaomi offering Rs.1 devices and price cuts to celebrate 2nd birthday in India
Xiaomi‘s second anniversary in India is coming up and to celebrate, the company is planning a massive three-day festival of price drops, flash sales and giveaways. Between July 20-22, Xiaomi fans in the sub-continent will get to enjoy all manner of discounts, games, surprises and other things designed to make buying electronics more fun. There’s a confusing array of stuff going on (like any good birthday party), so we’ve broken it down for you below.
Rs.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 Rs.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.
Mi Store special offers
Xiaomi has also bundled several items for the duration of the celebration, but only via the Mi Store app. Here’s what’s on offer there:
- Buy Mi 5 Gold and get a FREE Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro Gold
- Buy 20,000 mAh Mi Power Bank and get a FREE LED Light Enhanced or USB Fan
- Buy Mi 4i and get a FREE USB cable plus USB Fan
- Buy Redmi Note 3 and get Rs.100 OFF Redmi Note 3 phone cases
- Buy Mi Max and get Rs.50 OFF Mi Max phone cases
You can check into mi.com at 8 PM on July 18 to find out what the special mystery offer is. Apparently you’ll “face off with Hugo” for offers Xiaomi “guarantees will be worth it”. So add that to your calendar, folks.
New Mi gear
Xiaomi will also be releasing limited runs of new Mi products every day at 10 AM, so again, you’ll have to be fast to have your cake and eat it too. You’ll be able to pick up Mi In-Ear Capsule Headphones for Rs.999, In-Ear Headphones Pro Gold for Rs.1,799 and the 10,000 mAh Mi Power Bank for Rs.1,299.
Confused yet? There’s also price drops on – well, one – product for the birthday-cum-anniversary celebration. But it’s a doozy, especially if you’re in the market for a Bluetooth speaker. The Mi Bluetooth Speaker will be discounted from Rs.2,699 to just Rs.1,999 for the three days.
Free Mi Max game
From July 14-19, you can play a card matching game on the 2nd anniversary website or in the Mi Store app to win a free Xiaomi Mi Max. You know the game: flip over a card and find the matching card. Match all cards in the fastest time possible and get yourself a free Mi Max. There’s one to give away each day.
You can play five times or share the game to social media for unlimited attempts. There are also coupons worth Rs.11,500,000 to be won by playing the game. Note that each coupon can only be used individually, so you can’t combine multiple coupons on a single items. These expire at end of the three days.
Free Mi TV!
Finally (yes, we made it), there’s a free Mi TV for one lucky Mi fan that buys something through the Mi Store app during the three-day celebration.
So that’s it. Don’t forget to check in for Hugo’s surprise, try your luck on the card-matching game and see if your reflexes are fast enough to snag a Rs.1 deal. Let us know in the comments what you’ll be going for and check back in if you manage to get one!
