Telecom major Bharti Airtel has announced that it would celebrate January 16 as ‘Mi Day’ across its 133 stores in 6 cities – Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and Kolkata.
Starting 3 PM on Friday, Mi India fans will be able to simply walk-in to the nearest Airtel store and walk-out with a Redmi Note 4G without any pre-booking. The devices will be sold on first-come-first-serve basis till stocks last. The Mi Day will be held every week subject to stocks being available. This will be in addition to the ongoing booking process where customers can get a confirmed appointment at a store of their choice to purchase the Redmi Note 4G by visiting the Airtel website.
Airtel prepaid customers can purchase the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G at the store on recharging their connection with at least 1 GB 3G data pack. The sale is also open to Mi India fans using other telecom operators’ services provided they purchase an Airtel prepaid (with at least 1GB 3G data) or postpaid connection.
Customers purchasing the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G will also be provided a 4G SIM. Existing Airtel 3G users can enjoy 4G speeds on their new Redmi Note 4G at the same tariff as their existing 3G plan, without activating any special 4G plan. In cities where Airtel 4G services are not yet available, customers will be automatically upgraded to 4G at the same tariff as their existing 3G data packs once 4G services are launched in their city.
