Hi Mi Fan,

When we talk about Xiaomi, and we will talk about when is the next flash sale. Same in Malaysia, we always ask for next flash sales after the current flash sale ended!

What is Flash Sale? Flash sale is an ecommerce business model in which a website offers product(s) for sale for a time period. Just like what sale go on in Xiaomi.

Flash sales always can end in second or minute for high demand products. But, sometimes it is too limited quantity and so much customer didn't get buy it!

Here, #AskMi had made a video which asking Hugo Barra (Vice President of Mi) about "Will you consider dropping the flash sale model?" Here is it.

So after watched the video above, what do you think?

Is Flash Sale bringing Advantages or Disadvantages to us as consumer? Let's Debate!

Yes. Flash Sale is Good! Bring cheaper and guaranteed fixed quantities to customer!
Against 72

I am neutral on this. Actually, it's a kind of marketing strategy to create buzz about your proucts. Xiaomi is the only one who is currently using flash sale and one plus is using invite model, rest all are using retail model. So, its a company's personal choice which one to prefer.
