Today is Mi Fan Festival, and Xiaomi is launching a few long-awaited products in Singapore, like the Redmi Note 3, Mi Band Pulse, 20000mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge. There are also time-limited and quantity-limited offers up for grabs from 12pm (GMT +8).
Based on past experience, it would be close to impossible to secure the deals for the majority of us. Thankfully, the world’s our shopping market. GearBest is also holding a Mi Fan Sale, and all the items above are also available on the international website. Some are even cheaper. For instance, the Mi Band Pulse sells for S$27.99 in Singapore while on GearBest it is selling for US$15.99 (est. S$22) with free shipping.
Also on the GearBest site, they are selling more Xiaomi brand products that are not internationally available. In fact, GearBest has been selling the Singapore launch items for months. The difference now is that you can buy with local warranty and with proper after sales support like firmware updates or software availability.
So, if you fail to secure a buy on the Xiaomi Singapore website, and are eager to get the products, you can check out the GearBest offer. Shipping is free, though it might take 2-4 weeks to receive the items.
