Best Xiaomi Deals UK: Back To School Sale Begins

Xiaomi’s Back to School Sale is now live, and there are some great deals to be snapped up even if you’re not a student or teacher. Among them is a new release in the UK – the Redmi Buds 3 Pro – which have an early bird price of just £59.99 that ends midnight tomorrow (26 August).

Today only there is £50 off Poco X3 Pro and £40 off Mi Watch, but there are some other tantalising deals to be had too – including £150 off the flagship Mi 11, which also comes with a free Mi Watch Lite, and a £249 Redmi Note 9T bundle that packs a Mi Body Composition Scale 2, Mi Ionic Hairdryer H300, Mi Smart Band 5 (and extra strap), Mi True Wireless Earphones 2S, and a Mi Casual Daypack. Phew.

We’ve detailed the Xiaomi Back to School Sale in this separate article, but you’ll find more great Xiaomi deals listed below. 

Before you get too carried away, do note that Amazon’s End of Summer Sale is also imminent, and we may find more great Xiaomi deals there. This goes live on 26 August, running until 3 September.

If you’d rather buy in person, there are now multiple official Mi Stores located across the UK. Xiaomi products are also sold at the likes of Amazon, and in the past we’ve seen some cracking Xiaomi deals available from Chinese importers such as GearBest. Although it can still be quicker to get your hands on newly released devices when you buy from China, it’s no longer necessary to get the best prices.

Xiaomi Buying Advice

A few years back, importing Xiaomi phones to the UK was plagued with issues. Chinese ROM models do not come preinstalled with Google services, and in such cases you would need to install this yourself and navigate a Chinese menu and keyboard to get it set it up correctly. Connectivity was also an issue, with one of the three 4G bands used in the UK (800MHz/Band 20) rarely supported, and this could leave O2 users out in the cold. Thankfully, if you take care to purchase only Global ROM models, these are all a thing of the past.

Some of these issues do still apply to other Xiaomi products, however. Xiaomi laptops typically come with a Chinese Windows 10 OS, so require some know-how to install an English operating system, an OEM version of which will cost you only £10-20. With older products, such as the Mi Band 3, Chinese versions will naturally have Chinese menu icons. And many Xiaomi products shipped from China come with Chinese user manuals – Google is your friend here if you’re not sure how to get them set up.

It’s worth pointing out that any Xiaomi product you buy from the UK Mi Store will be an English version, and none of these issues will apply. They do, however, typically command slightly higher prices, and that’s largely because Xiaomi has less control over the supply and distribution costs outside China.
