Called FedEx call center and was told that even though the unit now resides in FedEx office near QueensBayMall, it will take up to a week, you heard it, 1 week, to deliver the unit to my door.

Rather, just zoom by around 2 pm today to collect the unit …

Redmi Note Purchase

How did i do that?

register

1. Register an account on mi.com

2. I chose to login using mobile phone number. During the account creation process, mi.com will send you a verification sms and assign a verification code to you.

  1. Login and verify that your account is accurate, as it will be your Mi id to access to Mi store and Mi cloud service.

Next create a text file to contain a few vital information:

  • Full name
  • Delivery address
  • Contact no
  • Valid credit card number, validity date and security number
  • Email Address

  1. Proceed to Paypal to create a personal account in order to pair that with your Malaysian banked issued credit card. This will be preferred as Mi.com uses paypal’s service to process payment.

  1. Finally, logon to Mi.com before 12pm, Tuesday, 29 July 2014, open multiple tab on your favorite web browser and

Good Luck !
