There is a huge demand for Xiaomi phones in the Indian market. Almost all the Xiaomi mobiles are sold through weekly flash sales on Amazon.in and Flipkart.com and this has been the strategy of company since it’s debut in India few years back. The new Xiaomi phones are hard to get and if finding them with cashback or discount or offers happens very less.
Here comes Xiaomi ‘Mi Independence Day Sale‘ through which Xiaomi Android phones are sold with 10% cashback on their official Xiaomi India website. Under this scheme, you get 10% cashback on Mi Max 2, Redmi 4A and Redmi 4 smartphones. The minimum transaction value should be Rs 2,000 and the maximum cashback offered is Rs. 200 only. This is valid when you do the transaction in full through PayTM wallet.
This is definitely a marketing gimmick because 10% of Rs 6999 i.e., Redmi 4 price is Rs 699. The Xiaomi is not offering that. Infact Rs 200, which is the maximum cashback here in this sale is almost one-fourth of what advertised. Similarly the Mi Max 2 which is priced at Rs 16,999, as advertised it should give you Rs 1699 as the cashback amount but you will get only Rs 200. This is however mis-leading and in order not be caught, just like every other promotion, there is * mark (Star mark) with terms and conditions apply.
The Mi Independence Day Sale starts from 10 AM on 15th August 2017.
Xiaomi has been using smart strategies to sell their devices in China, India and other parts of the word.
