Who Else Is Sick of All The XIAOMI Deals?

Every second deal that is posted is an Xiaomi something or other. It's gotten to the point where I move straight to the next deal as soon as I see the word "Xiaomi". Soon we will have to change the site name to OzXiaomi or XiaomiBargain. Enough already!

Rant over. Thanks for listening.

    But if it's a bargain… why not?

    • -13 votes

      I get your point. In fact, I have bought a number of their products thanks to Ozb so I do appreciate the deals, but at the same time I'm also sick of seeing the same brand name constantly come up. Make sense? Probably not. I've just confused myself.

      •  

        All the other brand you see daily too?

        Phones? TVs? Cars? You see the same brands everyday.

    I'm fairly sure you can filter them out. I'm sick of this site being ozWhinge.

    • -8 votes

      I don't want to filter them out because I have FOMO and don't want to miss a good bargain.

      • +7 votes

        So instead of filtering them so you see less bargains you just expect people to post less bargains so the entire site sees less bargains.

        • -13 votes

          Correct. I wouldn't feel bad if we all miss out

          Correct. I wouldn't feel bad if we all miss out

          @scrimshaw: Burn baby, burn.

    •  

      How do we do that? I'd be so keen!

      •  

        This may not be applicable for you but after clicking into a deal page there is a hide option underneath the report and reminder buttons. This can hide deals from certain users, shops, and tags.

          Great, thanks.

    Isn't it obvious from the vote count on the deals that people are happy with the products & prices?

      Yep, I had a feeling I would get this response. But it's late and I'm bored. So far 10 votes for YES so at least I'm not alone in my thinking. That's more votes than I thought I'd get.

    I have a solution for you OP. A personal word filter.. If you're using Chrome, download this addon, configure it to replace the words "Xiaomi" with something else like "Trump"

    Never see another Xiaomi deal again.

    •  

      +1 for you, Awesome Solution! I just hope I don't get sick of the word Trump now…

    If only there was a way to close the browser window.

      Extra yield if you sell the petrol to your colleagues.

        Even more yield if you sell it to other motorists at closed down gas stations.

          True, but just like buying a nice car selling cheap petrol to colleagues will make you look a nice guy. Improving your chances for further promotion and career progression.

    It seems like Xiaomi product constantly get refreshed on Ozbargain because sites have discount codes that last 1 day or 2.

    They get posted on Ozbargain then when the code expires another code will appear the next day and it gets posted again which most of the time is not cheaper than the first discount code.

    Maybe there should be a cool down period for the same product (1 month) for these types of deals unless the price is at the historic cheapest.

    •  

      Agree. Within the 1st 30 days.. the original post should just be updated to reflect any new coupons (even from a different seller).

      So a search would still find the cheapest deals.. but it won't pop up as a new deal anymore.

      •  

        Problem is the original deal will scroll away from the main page and nobody would see it.

    •  

      You can select an option to have expired deals hidden. I got irritated with all of the deals that only lasted 30 mins or so but were clutting the front page for days afterward.

    First World Problem…

  •  

    I used to be when I first started frequenting this website (also did not like the constant barrage of deals from online sellers, had to stop ordering from those a few years back after too many items missing in my orders and one order not even turning up. But last decade you could go gangbusters on Dealextreme, have large untracked packages of assorted items and they would all make it.).

    But I bought a Xioami Redmi 4X to replace my iPhone 4 and am now a convert, so liking the opportunity to sample more of their products (even if it is just consumerist desire for novelty items). I did just draw the line at a Xiaomi powerbank because I still actually have two working powerbanks (even if they are just low capacity generic ones).

    I used to keep buying torches on a regular basis but there's more satisfaction to be had in actually using your (outdated) purchase rather than imagining how great the new release could be.

    the guys who post coles brochures showing a 12 pack toilet roll on sale are just as bad. if i want to go and find brochures i will go find them.

  • +1 vote

    and theres the guys who look for condom ads to be famous in ozbargain folklore as they make some stupid repeated joke about oh yeah lets buy 10 packs to last me 40 yeras or what a pity they dont make them in horse

  •  

    You might be getting sick of them but other are not. I'm waiting for a good price on two Xiaomi electronics I need and this site is like god send. Just scroll past them.

  •  

    Post like these make feel it should be the opposite.. Let all proper/good deals in, whether they be gun, religious items, adult toys, etc.

    When we get these types of posts, make that user select the types / keywords they want to stop deals from viewing here.

    Lots of users want OzBargain tailored for themselves, rather than for everyone. Some people can't look past things that 'offend' them.

    I for one, want to see all bargains. If a strap on is 90% off, I want to see it. I won't buy it, but I want to see bargains. #LifeUnfiltered

    Is it worth buying any of these products from this random Chinese company??

    •  

      They're hardly a random Chinese company. They've been around a while, mostly building good quality products that try to imitate Apple designs. I'd consider them good value most of the time.

    Merged from A front page full of Xiaomi deals

    This is a screenshot of the front page I just took:

    https://i.imgur.com/nOfdLB4.png

    I'm a huge Xiaomi fan and own a lot of their products but it's getting one dimensional. I would like to see other deals rather than repeating Xiaomi products. If we can have a better way of grouping Xiaomi deals or products from chinese sellers that would be awesome.

    Thanks.

    • +1 vote

      Maybe by adding a flag to the vendors linked in the deal? : whether they are Australian or overseas based.
      If overseas whether they are in US, China/HK or UK

      then user can untick 'display overseas deals' or have these deals collapsed by default

      Actually think people post/vote for Xiaomi ‘bargains’ just for giggles when it spams the front page.

    •  

      I see a lot of deals from Zapals, LightInTheBox, gearbest and banggood on front page
      guess its good to have 'curated' deals rather than trawling through individual sites ourselves but i get your point.

    • +5 votes

      For those curious, here's the crazy ascent of Xiaomi over the last few years. The last few months should be even higher since they've recently started clumping multiple xioami products in single deals as opposed to posting them separately.

      • +2 votes

        Neat. How did you produce those graphs?

        • +2 votes

          This search matches the graph with 120 deals for Dec 2017, hopefully not done all manually for their sake.

        • +2 votes

          @awoff1: Yeah, it was done like that. I just modified the URL so that the page number was set to 50, which takes you to the last page anyway. From there it's quite easy to determine the total for the month. Just do that for every month by tweaking the URL/search and you got yourself a graph. Yes, I was quite bored so was curious enough to find the figures.

    • +4 votes

      Seems to be a strategy by these sellers to offer limited quantities at a price within a few cents of each other that has been "negotiated" by ozbargainers as a way of circumventing the posting limits for store reps.

    • +1 vote

      Considering I'm seeing posts all linked back to Light In The Box, previously on OzB, I'd see one "Bargain" from one website, then the post containing examples of bargains from that site.

      This just comes across as straight up spam.

    Xiaomi are taking over the world.
    Past year, i have bought a robot vacuum, dozens of lights, screwdriver sets and night lights, selfie stick…out of all those, the only thing I really needed was the vacuum…

    Been noticing there's so many Xiaomi bargains posted each day… as of this morning, first 2 pages have 11 deals for Xiaomi products.

    time for a name change to the site ?
    let the downvotes begin!

    I'm only joking, I'm glad there is a brand that makes cheap reliable quality products.

    I was over in Beijing and Shanghai quite recently and let's just say Xiaomi ads are everywhere in their train station.

    Imagine having to put up with those ads on a daily basis with no way out (other than not to travel via their extremely efficient subways).

  •  

    New deal… I Love XiaoMi stickers. 20 for US$1 with code XiaoMiLove. Limited to the first 100 orders or 6 minutes, whichever comes first (or some other random reason that the code stops working). Happy Shopping!

  •  

    Me and my mates have been referring to OzBargain as XBargain for a while now. My problem is the amount of low priced junk that keeps appearing like USB charges and cables. Things like their vacs and other higher priced items are perfectly fine. Just my opinion.

    Ide love to be able to filter what appears on the home page by price. So say anything under $50 doesn't appear.
