Xiaomi promised to giveaway 1,000 Mi Bands for Re. 1 as part of special preview program. Registrations for the flash sale began on April 28 and there was a lot of confusion. During the event, Xiaomi mentioned first 1,000 registrants (as per most fans) will get the band for Re 1 but that isn’t the case. The company will hold a flash sale at 2PM on May 5 on their official website. Only 1,000 units will be up for grab and only 1,000 lucky consumers will get it. ‘First cum first serve’ situation to say the least.
Most consumers are expecting more than 1,000 units to be sold on May 5 but that is not the case. For the first flash sale, only 1,000 units will be available at special price of Re 1. The next flash (May 12) sale will have more number of units on sale for full price i.e., Rs 999.
As the Xiaomi Mi Band will only be available on Mi.com, it will be interesting to see if the servers stay strong post 2PM on May 5. There will be a huge rush for the Mi Band because it is a value for money device, even if you purchase it at Rs 999.
If you want to be part of the pilot flash sale and try your luck to get the Xiaomi Mi Band for Re 1, register now.
