Jio has a lot in store for its users this New Year. Last week, the telecom operator announced two new prepaid plans for its Prime users, called Happy New Year 2018. Jio now introduces a cashback offer called the Surprise Cashback. Under this offer, Jio is offering a cashback of up to Rs 3,300 on recharge of 399. In simple terms, you recharge your Jio number with Rs 399 plan and Jio will refund back the money in the form of cashback.
Jio will offer the cashback in various ways, for instance, in the form of MyJio vouchers, shopping vouchers and more. Note: The maximum cashback that you can get is up to Rs 3,300. Let’s make this simple for you on how this cashback offer actually works.
Remember Jio introduced another similar offer called a “Triple Cashback” offer last month? Under this offer, Jio offered a cashback of up to Rs 2,599 on recharge of Rs 399 or above plans. With the Triple Cashback offer, Jio offered 100 per cent cashback to its users, but that’s not the case with the new Surprise Cashback offer. To recall, the Triple Cashback offer was earlier valid until November 25, but now Jio has extended this offer by one more month, which is until December 25.
The New Year Surprise Cashback offer will be effective on all Rs 399 recharges done before January 15, 2018. Under Rs 399 plan, Jio offers 70GB of 4G data for 70 days — with 1GB of daily data limit. Like the other Jio plans, it also offers unlimited voice calls to local and roaming numbers — to both Jio and other networks.
Here’s how the Surprise Cashback works:
— First, if you plan to recharge your Jio number via MyJio app, Jio will offer cash back of Rs 400. The cashback will be made in the form of MyJio cashback vouchers. This also means that on recharging with Rs 399 plan via the MyJio app — you will get cashback of Rs 400. There’s no mention on when will Jio credit the voucher, but all that is known is that it will be credited to your MyJio app and will be in the form of eight vouchers of Rs. 50. After the voucher is credited to your account, you can head on to the “My Vouchers” section of your MyJio app and redeem it on your next recharge. It seems, you can redeem one Rs 50 voucher at a time — which means that you’ll get the total Rs 400 cashback over a span of next 8 recharges.
— Second, if you recharge you Jio number via other wallets like — like Paytm, AmazonPay, AxisPay, FreeCharge, Mobikwik and PhonePe, you will get a cashback of up to Rs 300. This, as Jio claims, will be an instant cashback, which means that you’ll get Rs 300 transferred to your respective e-wallet as soon as you make the recharge. Note: the cashback will be made only if you recharge your Jio number with Rs 399 plan. This means, out of the Rs 399 — on recharging via e-wallet, Jio will offer Rs 300 cash back and you’ll actually need to pay Rs 99 from your pocket.
— Third, if you recharge your Jio number with Rs 399 plan via MyJio app or any other platform, Jio will offer up to Rs 2,600 discount in the form of shopping vouchers. So basically, you get done with Rs 399 recharge on your Jio number, and the telecom operator will provide you which shopping vouchers which you can use it on the respective e-commerce stores. These vouchers will be credited to your MyJio app, after which you will be able to redeem them. Here are the offers: 20 per cent discount on Zoomcar which is up to Rs 1,000, 30 per cent on OYO Hotel booking and 50 per cent OYO Money cashback which is up to Rs 1,500, 100 per cent cashback on Paytm Mall, 20 per cent discount on BigBash, and Rs 300 cashback on Grofers order of Rs 1,500, Rs 500 off on domestic flights through Yatra, valid only on one-way bookings. These partner e-commerce vouchers will be valid until March 31.
All the recharges to avail the cashback should be done before January 15. Also this offer is only for the Prime members.
