Xiaomi is offering a new discount on some of its smartphones if you purchase them from Flipkart. SBI Credit Card users can avail an instant discount of Rs.500 on select Xiaomi smartphones, TVs, smart devices, audio products, and more. Eligible phones include Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi 5A and Redmi Y1 to name a few. Read ahead to know more on how to avail this offer and other details.
Xiaomi Rs.500 Discount: Offer Duration, Other Details
The ongoing Flipkart offer for a flat Rs.500 off on select Xiaomi products started at 10:00 AM today (July 10) and is scheduled to run until 12 July midnight. The offer can only be availed once for every SBI Credit Card. Other than SBI Credit Corporate & Commercial Cards, all SBI Credit Cards can avail the offer. You will need to make the purchase using the card as payments made via Internet Banking or through services such as PhonePe cannot avail this offer.
The terms and conditions page also mentions that the cart value being paid by the SBI Credit Card has to be at least Rs. 7,500 to avail the offer. This makes the situation slightly confusing as some products, such as the Redmi 5A, cost less than this limit. It is unclear if more eligible products need to be added to the cart or if the discount will be applicable to all eligible products regardless of cart value. Another uncertainty arises from the fact that products such as the Redmi 5A and Mi TVs are only available on weekly flash sales which might not coincide with this offer period.
Xiaomi Rs.500 Discount Offer: Eligible Device Prices
The Redmi Note 5 Pro is among the list of smartphones that are being offered within this discount scheme. The 4GB RAM variant of this phone retails for Rs. 14,999 and will have it price drop down to Rs.14,499 with this offer. The 6GB RAM variant of this device is also eligible for this offer and will have its price come down To Rs.16,499 from its standard retail price of Rs. 16,999. The phone is currently available to purchase directly from the Flipkart website and app.
The Redmi 5A is also being offered with this discounted offer on Flipkart. However, it is worth mentioning that the phone is not currently available for purchase and its current Flipkart listing does not specify when the next flash sale will be conducted. Furthermore, there is the issue of the Rs. 7,500 minimum cart value mentioned in the terms and conditions of this offer which might prevent potential customers from buying this phone as both storage variants fall short. The 2GB RAM + 16GB storage model of the Redmi 5A costs Rs.5,999 while its 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant costs Rs. 6,999. If customers are able to make a purchase without fulfilling the minimum cart value condition, the phone would be purchasable for Rs. 5,499 and Rs 6,499 respectively.
Also being offered at a discounted rate is the Redmi Y1 in its 3GB RAM and 32 GB storage configuration. This phone is readily available for purchase on Flipkart and will cost Rs. 8,499 after applying the discount. A 5% additional discount is applicable on Visa cards if this is one of the first 3 purchases being made from that specific card.
Then we have the three Mi TV variants from Xiaomi which are also among the eligible products for this SBI Credit Card discount offer. The 55-inch Mi TV 4 normally retails for Rs.44,999 and will be purchasable for Rs.44,499 with this offer. Similarly, the Mi TV 4A 43-inch and 32-inch models can be bought for Rs. 22,499 and Rs.13,499 respectively. While neither of the three televisions is available for sale today, their next sale has been specified to take place on Flipkart tomorrow afternoon (July 11).
