Guys I'm all set for today's sale.

- - - Updated - - -

Guys strange thing is happening. I registered for the Yureka sale and since I had problem with net I had asked my friend to login and add the mobile in the cart. He was able to add it to the cart.
Now when I try to checkout and purchase the price is showing as Rs 12,500. What could be the issue?
Did anyone face same issue?
What's the work around for this?
Till how much time will the mobile be in the cart?

Looks like your friend has also bought something, otherwise there is no reason for price hike.

No it still shows RS 12500.
Called Amazon these guys are telling the purchase needs to be done within 15 mins of the product being added in cart to avail the price of Rs 8999.
If I need the phone now then I would need to purchase it for Rs 12,500.

Crap man I had the same problem with my Redmi1s. The flipkart site will be blocked at office and there will be no power at home.
Today also same problem the site is blocked here and there was no power at home.

Actually when I logged in back around 2:45 PM I got a message that the flash sale is over.
I'm getting doubt that maybe what the CC is telling is true that somebody has to make purchase within 15 minutes for the price to be Rs 8999

IS it in your cart right now or gone?

I think they are doing it right. Flash sales are supposed to create hype and allow those who are really invested in the brand to get it for a lower price. So that 15 minute window makes sense. It will give you a sense of triumph as if you have won something.

It is also right that they increase the price for stragglers so that really interested parties have a better chance of getting one.

And perfectly right that it is removed from cart if not bought within a reasonable time because they have sold out their stock.

I agree with you partially but what about cases like me where we don't have a stable internet connection due to some problem.
I'm sure Amazon would appreciate a regular customer who purchases products from them and if he has one off day due to net problem atleast give him an option if he has in his cart to let him purchase at the price mentioned for atleast an hour from the time it was put in cart. I know the number of cases like my happening is low but still.
What does stragglers mean?
The Customer Care Rep told that the phones got sold out within 3 minutes of it going live however the product was in my cart and if I wanted to purchase it was available for me at the Rs 12999 price in the cart till 3 PM.

I'm really not sure what's this business of Online Flash sale thing. Still not able to understand this.
Specially in my place where I'm not guranteed of having power during the sale period.
Had to go through the same pain to get hold of Redmi1s.
Seriously currently I'm running tight on budget otherwise I would have gone for something better.

Bro, next sale day, attempt to checkout using your Amazon app using your 3G pack. Its a good value for money phone. That is why it is difficult to get.

That crap 3G data let me down more than couple of time during Redmi1S Sale.
Not sure how it will help this time.
One mistake I did was after my friend moved it to cart around 2:05 PM I should have made purchase from my phone using the 3G data. But I didn't want to share my CC details through Phone.
Anyways next time looks like I need to go this way.
