It has been quite an enjoyable ride for Micromax's YU brand in India, with seven consecutive flash sales for the widely popular Yureka smartphone. The affordable handset has brought a new level of competition among smartphone manufacturers to deliver great specs at cheap price.
Micromax is already among the leading smartphone vendors in India, thanks to the newly-released YU brand. The success story continues, as the eight flash sale for the Yu Yureka is expected to go live on Thursday, 5 March via Amazon India at exactly 2PM.
If you were unable to purchase the Yureka smartphone in last week's flash sale, you are probably not alone. Several users reported a glitch with the reverse timer on the Amazon shopping site, which did not show the 'Buy' button at 2PM. The company had 30,000 units on sale last Thursday, which went out of stock in just 6 seconds.
If you were among the ones to successfully complete the Yureka purchase, your purchase tricks worked well. Those who missed the opportunity can follow the following steps to get a better chance of buying the handset this week.
- Register for the 5 March sale as registrations done for the previous sales are not valid.
- Login to your Amazon.in account a few minutes ahead of the sale time.
- Ensure your shipping address is correct and updated on your account.
- Constantly refresh the browser window to stay at par with the Internet countdown.
- If you are good at multi-tasking, try opening two-three browsers to increase your chances of adding the phone to cart.
- Once the reverse timer widget ends, add Yureka to your cart.
- If you were successful in adding the phone to cart, take a breather as you get 15 minutes to make the payment and checkout.
- If you fail to check out in 15 minutes, the handset becomes available to those who have joined the waitlist.
- In case you missed to add the phone to cart, join the waitlist and you will be alerted when a smartphone becomes available.
Registrations for Thursday flash sale are open and will close tomorrow, 4 March midnight. Be sure to sign up before the window closes.
