Now You can Exchange your Old Smartphone with a New Xiaomi Phone Via Mi.com
Back in November 2017, Xiaomi had introduced a trade-in programme that allows users to exchange their old smartphones for a new handset. The company had partnered with Cashify to launch the Mi Exchange programme across its Mi Home stores. However, on Thursday, Xiaomi has expanded the program to its website, Mi.com. Under the new offer, users can avail an instant exchange coupon which can be used to replace an old smartphone with a new one. Xiaomi says that the Mi Exchange offer will provide the best exchange value based on the handset’s condition and its current market price.
Here’s more on how to avail this offer.
Go to the offer page on Mi.com and select the smartphone you wish to exchange.
You have to key in the phone’s IMEI number, based on which Xiaomi will offer an exchange value coupon. Upon acceptance, your Mi account will be credited, which can then be redeemed to buy a new smartphone from Mi.com.
Your old handset will be collected when the new smartphone is delivered.
To avail the new Mi Exchange offer the potential buyer will need to keep a few pointers in mind:
— Xiaomi says that if the old smartphone is in working condition and not physically damaged, it can be exchanged.
— You will have to disable all the phone locks. Further, a customer can exchange only one phone per order.
— Notably, exchange coupon is valid for 14 days, starting from the time of issuance.
— Lastly, the offer is applicable only on smartphones and not other products or accessories.
Eligible brands for Mi Exchange Program:
Note that the exchange program is available only on select handsets by companies like Samsung, Sony, HTC, Motorola, Micromax, Gionee, Oppo, Asus, Lenovo, OnePlus, Huawei, Vivo, Letv, and Google Pixel. For instance, you can’t exchange your OnePlus 5T for the new Xiaomi phone. Buyers can of course exchange their old Xiaomi phone will a new one.
To recall, the Mi Exchange program was launched in collaboration with New Delhi-based Cashify. The program was previously launched to give Xiaomi’s offline push a major boost: something that the company has been working for quite some time now, after having already proved its mettle on online sales channels. Well, now it looks like the company is looking forward to further expand its online reach as well.
