Now Xiaomi comes up with Mi Diwali sale
Chinese company Xiaomi has started selling its products through offline retail outlets and its own branded stores, but the focus on online market still remains strong. After the recently concluded Big Billion Days sale by Flipkart and Great Indian Festival sale by Amazon, Xiaomi has come up with a three-day Diwali with Mi sale (27-29 September) on its own online store Mi.com offering discounts on smartphones, power banks, fitness band and WiFi routers.
Besides direct discounts, there are plenty of other deals which can save you a few bucks. SBI credit and debit card users will get an extra 5% cashback on transactions of more than Rs8,000. The bid to win offer allows users to bid for a product (the bid cannot be more than the actual price of the product) and take away a product at a lower price. Xiaomi is also giving away discount coupons of up to Rs500 on accessories bough through the Mi shopping app.
