As expected, Xiaomi and Flipkart managed to execute a flash sale in seconds, yet again. 50,000 units of the Redmi Note went 'out of stock' in mere six seconds. However, looks like, some users who managed to grab a unit plan to make easy money by selling it online.
It was barely an hour that the Redmi went on sale at 2PM and was subsequently sold out, we saw several lucky owners take to Twitter, eBay and even the comments section of articles to reveal that they are willing to sell the just-booked Redmi Note.
For instance,take a look at this ad on eBay, wherein a user has posted a screenshot confirming he/she has managed to grab a unit of the Xiaomi Redmi Note. There are several such advertisement asking interested users to pay somewhere between Rs 999 to Rs 1299 and the device will be shipped to their address with a COD option. Buyers can then pay for the device when it reaches them. However, it is very difficult to vouch for the authenticity of these offers.
The eBay listing below show the Redmi Note priced at Rs 8,999 being sold for Rs 15, 400.
Some users have also taken to sell their just-booked Redmi Note and revealed their email addresses and phone numbers. Some have even posted screenshots confirming a unit of Redmi Note in the cart.

Besides, several users have also started commenting on Xiaomi Redmi articles on news portals, asking interested buyers to contact them.
There is a trail of comments wherein several users have started leaving their contact details for those who couldn't get their hands on the Redmi Note. We wouldn't be surprised to see the price shooting further and a longer trail of such messages once the Redmi Note is delivered to those looking to sell it.
