It has been two years since Xiaomi, popularly known as "Apple of China," made its debut in India, and it is celebrating its success with three-day Mi 2nd anniversary sale starting from July 20. During the sale, the Chinese smartphone maker is offering generous discounts and offers on a wide range of its products, which its fans must not miss.

As a part of Xiaomi's 2nd anniversary sale, the company is hosting its popular "Re. 1 Flash Deals," where consumers will have a limited window to purchase Mi products at just Re. 1. On the first day of the sale, registered buyers will be offered 10 Mi 5 smartphones and 100 Mi 20,000mAh Power Banks at Re. 1. As the sale progresses to the second day, 10 Xiaomi Redmi Note 3s and 100 Mi Bands will be up for grabs and the recently launched Mi Max and 100 units of Mi Bluetooth speakers will be available on the final day.

The Re. 1 flash sales will begin at 2 p.m. every day. Registrations are mandatory for the participation in the flash deals. To do so, one must share the news on Facebook before July 19.

As one can expect, the limited quantity of the products and the steep discounts will attract a large number of eager buyers. In order to save up to 99 percent on the products' retail value, one must be alert of the timing of the flash sale and be prepared to act fast.

Here are some flash sale tips and tricks that can come in handy for those who are really interested in making the most of Xiaomi's Re. 1 Flash Deals:

  • The main trick to succeed in the Re 1 flash sale is speed and timing. Make sure you have a stable Internet connection and do not delay in participation.
  • Update your shipping address on your account and also payment details (if you prefer) to avoid last minute hassles.
  • Login to the company's official website a few minutes in advance, say at 1:45pm on the sale days (July 20, 21, 22).
  • You will see a countdown before the flash sale begins, so stay alert.
  • Close all unnecessary tabs and browsers, especially if they consume a lot of bandwidth such as YouTube, during the ordering process.
  • Refresh the Re 1 flash sale page at regular intervals. This will update the real-time countdown.
  • During the last leg of the countdown, say 10 seconds, stay alert and place the cursor on the countdown.
  • After the final refresh at one second, click buy as soon as the countdown is replaced with a buy button.
  • If you managed to click the buy button, proceed to the cart and see the item you ordered and complete the purchase.
  • Buyers must note that delaying checkouts will drain all the hard work that has gone into ordering the devices on offer.

Other than the Re. 1 Flash Deals, Xiaomi is also offering limited period price drops on various products such as Mi Bluetooth Speaker during the sale. Items that haven't been released in India yet will also be up for grabs during the sale, so if you've waited too long for the Mi Capsule Headphones and Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro Gold then here's your chance.

Smartphone users can also download the Mi Store App to enjoy some special offers on products such as Mi Max, Redmi Note, Mi 4i, and 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank.
