Group Buy - Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Special Edition Cases and Screen Protectors

Hi,

Just purchased a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Special Edition mobile and looking at buying a case and screen protector.
Found this official Xiaomi website in Taiwan that sells the

Unfortunately they don't ship directly to Australia.
But i have found a shipping forwarded to ship it from Taiwan to Australia.

$41 for 1kg EMS (4 - 6 days, excluding delays in customs)
$28 for 1kg Normal Air Parcel (10-13 days, excluding delays in customs)

They also charge roughly $25 for their service.

Let us know if anyone in Perth, WA (or anyone else if you dont mind paying the extra $5 in postage) is interested in doing this.

If we could get 9 people buying a case and screen each it would be approx $20 for the set pickup in Perth
or if there were 4 people buying a case and screen each it would be approx $25 for the set pickup in Perth

Cheers

Edit: landed price in Perth

Flip Case - $11.50
Shell Case - $9.00
Screen Protector - $8.50

  • delivery if your not in Perth, approx $5

  • Hi Rewstar

    I'm up for a group buy, and OK to pay an extra $5 for Postage Perth - Adelaide.

    Let me know when you get the numbers.

    BTW, how do we know from the ad that these will definitely fit the Special edition / International / Kate RN3 and aren't just standard RN3 accessories…?

  • Hi there, I am also keen and happy to pay extra $5 for postage Perth - Canberra.

    Has there been much interest?

  • Not really just you two at the moment.

  • I'm happy to grab a set too. Screen protector and flip case for $25? And to make things easy for you, I'm in Perth.

  • Apparently the user samehada will be stocking the cases in a weeks time for $16 including shipping.
    So going through him will prob work out cheaper.

    Not sure how much the screen protector will be.

    • Thanks for this - is there a link or any other information?

  • Also interested in this. A link for samehada too?

  • https://www.ozbargain.com.au/user/24969

    That's samehada profile, I sent him a pm asking him to explain the situation a bit more in this post, hopefully he will reply soon.

  • I'm in Perth and interested in a group buy.

  • Hi guys, I am interested. In Brissie so will pay extra.

  • Ok since samehada isn't replying I'm happy to do this bulk order.

    Just let us know what case & colour you require, I assume everyone wants a screen protector.

    I'll also need to get a $10 deposit from everyone. Once everyone has confirmed what they want I'll pm my payment details.

    Cheers

  • Thanks so much for this rewstar!

    I would like to order:

    1 screen protector
    1 shell cover dark silver
    1 flip case blue gray

    Cheers

  • Just to make it easier to work out what people are up for below is the following prices for each item.

    Flip Case - $11.50
    Shell Case - $9.00
    Screen Protector - $8.50

    • delivery if your not in Perth

    Will need at least 8 people ordering at least 2 items each for this to go through.

    Cheers

  • I'm interested in this…
    I'm in Perth and received my shiny new Redmi Note 3 "Kate" on Monday.
    I'll be in touch tonight… (still at work).

    • 1 x light silver shell case
      Will get the screen protector only if we need to meet the minimum…

  • are those screen protectors the tempered glass ones?

  • Ok. I'm in Brisbane. Interested in the gold shell case and the screen protector. Yeah, is it tempered glass?

  • I'll check with the shipping forwarder to see if he can confirm it is tempered glass.

  • No it's not glass, just a film.
    The glass one is out of stock.

    You can buy this one:

      My bad swanknation already changed to a flip case.
      Will place order tmr morning.

      Cheers

  • Thanks for organising rewstar!

    I may have missed it, but if order is placed today - any ETA on when they'll be arriving?

  • +1

    Ordered yesterday morning, the forwarder ordered the items yesterday as well.

    From the website 3-4 days for the products to arrive at their shop and for them to organise repacking ect

    Then depending how much the parcel weights, will depend on what shipping method I can go for.

    Either 4-6 days or 10-13 days.

    Then posting then within Australia, which will take another couple of days for Auspost to deliver them.

      Just wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you have put into this project - it is very much appreciated!

      Regards
      Brew

  • Any chance of adding another blue-grey shell, and protector?

    Otherwise, if someone else pikes out, I'll have them.

    • Sorry, too late.
      Order has already been placed.

    Goods have arrived at the forwarder.

    Ok parcel is on it's way, sent an email to everyone that needed to pay the final payment or if I required their address.

    I paid for the quicker shipping speed so it should hopefully arrive in Perth mid next week.

    If I missed anyone in the pm's just let us know.

  • Thanks again rewstar, your efforts are greatly appreciated.

    Just to let anyone who missed out know, there are genuine cases on pre-order available on eBay.

  • +1

    Ok all arrived and looks good.
    Have packaged them all up and will post them off tomorrow.

    Cheers

  • Thanks mate. Cover arrived today (shell). Fits well although not sure how much protection will provide as its fairly thin/flimsy. Cheers again

  • +1

    Thanks Rewstar for this undertaking - got my order today and really appreciate all your time and effort!

    For others considering buying on ebay my feedback is that the products fit perfectly - the flipcase is better than I expected, the shell is OK - similar views to "wheresthebeef's" comments above.

    • I actually have gone back to using my Kenzo silicon case now. Found that the shell, although fit, was actually a little loose and didn't appear to offer much protection.

      I did try putting a tiny bit of blue-tac in top corner of shell to try get a tighter fit but wasn't the best solution.

      Still appreciate the time effort of Rewstar.

  • Thanks for all your efforts rewstar.

    Flip case arrived today and fits perfectly, unlike the kenzo case I bought previously.

    Looks much better than the TPU case I had been using.
