Mi India and Flipkart today announced a special festive surprise for its fans who have never given up trying to buy a Mi 3.
On October 6th, approx. 25,000 Mi fans who tried to buy Mi 3 at least five times or more will find the device added to their cart on popular e-commerce site Flipkart. These fans will now get a chance of buying the Mi 3 without having to register or hit the "buy" button.
Mi India has had a great response from fans till now, making available more than 300,000 Mi phones since its launch in India two months back.
The lucky fans eligible for this festive surprise will be notified directly on October 5th that they will have the Mi 3 made available directly in their cart on October 6, 2014. These lucky fans will have about 1 to 2 hours to checkout. If there are dropouts or a fan declines to purchase the device a second batch will have the device in their cart the same day.
Manu Jain, GM and Head of India Operations at Xiaomi said, "We would like to pay tribute to our most passionate fans through this little gift of recognizing their passion for our products. Even though, they have repeatedly tried to get the device and failed, their determination to get Mi 3 clearly sets them apart as fans that any brand would be lucky to have."
He further added, "We do recognize this and have taken this initiative to provide them direct access to purchase the Mi 3. We wish all our fans a happy Dussehra, Eid, and Diwali, and thank them for their love and support."
