Xiaomi is known for hosting festival sales from time to time. In India, the company has grown to be favourite among shoppers for attractive contests and discounts on its entire product range. This Diwali, Xiaomi is bringing back its sale and there's a lot worth looking forward to.

The "Diwali with Mi" sale brings good old discounts to latest products, including smartphones like the Redmi 4, Mi Max 2 and Redmi 4A, as well as accessories the Mi Band, headphones, Bluetooth speakers, power banks and air purifiers. But these discounts are just the tip of the iceberg.

The real offers are towards the end of Xiaomi's offer page. From September 27 to September 29, shoppers stand a chance to win exciting prizes without having to spend anything. Well, except for the Re 1 flash sale, where customers will need to pay a single rupee if they are to order a product on sale.

Xiaomi's Re 1 flash sale is a popular promotion to engage shoppers. Since there are limited quantities during the sale, it's based entirely on first-come-first-served basis. And if prior sales are any indication, the Re 1 flash sale won't last for more than a few seconds.

There will be two flash sales each day, the first one at 11 am and the second at 5 pm, on September 27, 28 and 29. Time is of essence here, so the first ones to login and place their order will be the luckiest.

According to the Re 1 flash sale terms and conditions, buyers will have to complete the purchase within two hours after adding the product to the cart, which itself is a difficult task.

In our experience, the best practices to stand a chance to buy products during the Re 1 flash sale by Xiaomi are:

  • Login minutes before the sale begins
  • Update your card details and shipping address to avoid last minute hassles
  • Decide which product you're going to buy and keep the page ready
  • Once the sale begins, click on buy button and proceed to checkout
  • Do not delay while checking out, as the order might get cancelled
  • Make sure you have a stable and fast internet connection on your PC/ mobile app
  • Don't lose sight of the sale page during the final few minutes
  • Avoid using any plugins or tools that promise or guarantee you the purchase. Xiaomi "reserves the right to review and cancel orders under this sale in case of any suspicious or fraudulent activity."

Xiaomi hosts several contests besides the Re 1 flash sale. Shoppers can grab coupons at 10 am every day during the "Diwali with Mi" sale.
