Are you looking to buy any Xiaomi products but are sick of flash sales?
Then you are at the right place!
Here I’ll be telling you a super secret trick that will ensure you that you get the product! And no it’s not any script or extension. It’s something that’s present in every browser and works on the principles of HTML, something the entire internet relies on.
PS: The trick will work only if the product is already in your cart. So if you have managed to add the product in the cart, do not delete it and simply wait for the next flash sale to try this trick out and get the product in your hands.
So, What’s the trick?
- First things first, go to your cart 10 minutes before the sale time with the product already in stock. It will look something like this:
- Notice, how the ‘PLACE ORDER’ button is grayed out? Well, here’s where HTML comes into play. In Google Chrome, head over to the ‘3 dots’ in the top right corner. Now follow this path: 3 Dots – More Tools – Developer Tools
A small window will pop up and look like this:
- This is where you can edit HTML content on the page. Click on the window and use CTRL + F. This will open a search bar within the window. Now type ‘PLACE ORDER’ and you will be sent here –
- Notice how the button is disabled? Right click on disabled and click on Edit as HTML. You can now edit this code.
Simply change disabled to enabled and viola the trick is done!
So, What now?
- Click outside the Developer box on the cart screen and you will notice that the ‘PLACE ORDER‘ button is now enabled!
- Click on place order and it will take you the check out screen. However, as the flash sale has not started yet, Flipkart will tell you that the product is out of stock and give you an option to go back to your cart! DO NOT DO THAT
- Instead wait for at least 3 minutes before the sale and then keep pressing F5 repeatedly. This will refresh the screen.
- Keep refreshing every 3 seconds until the product is back in stock and you are given the option to chose your payment option. This should happen approximately 30 seconds before the flash sale time. Yes, you read it right! 30 seconds before!
So, that’s it, chose your payment method, make the payment and wait for your Redmi note 5/pro/Mi Tv to arrive. Cheers!
