Xiaomi announces Mi Exchange Program to exchange old Xiaomi phones for new ones
Xiaomi has launched its new trade-in program called Mi Exchange to make its handsets even more budget-friendly. Xiaomi has been expanding its network by offline channels after opening a number of Mi Home stores in India. The Mi Exchange program is available at all Mi Home stores across the country.
Speaking about the trade-in program, the company has announced the Mi Exchange program in a partnership with Cashify which lets users exchange old smartphones for the new ones. So, whenever a new smartphone from Xiaomi arrives, you have the option to exchange your old Redmi or Mi smartphones which further reduces the price for the new Xiaomi smartphone.
To check how much price your phone can get, you can visit the Cashify website, enter your phone model and follow the procedure. When you exchange a Xiaomi phone, a Cahsify team will inspect the old smartphone and quote a price depending on the condition of the phone. The amount can be redeemed as a discount voucher while purchasing a Xiaomi smartphone.
Customers can also avail the smartphone delivered at the doorstep and get the differential amount. However, in this case, the entire amount has to be paid upfront. An employee from Cashify will come and inspect the old smartphone, handing over its value as cashback.
This is not the first time in the country, there are other trade-in programs also run by Samsung and OnePlus. Flipkart also runs similar programs.
