Jio announces 'Buy One Get One Free Recharge' offer for Prime users

Jio announces 'Buy One Get One Free Recharge' offer for Prime users

Similar to the previous HNY offer, the Prime membership too will provide users with an FUP limit of 1GB data for each day.

Plans north of Rs 799 also offer unlimited roaming calls, both incoming and outgoing. Now, Jio introduced Jio Prime membership which started on Wednesday, March 1st and will go on till march 31st.

Instead of announcing plan changes publicly, companies are discreetly introducing new offers and plans directly to customers. It was nearly like a similar offering from every operator before Reliance Jio entered the scene and now, there has been a big fall in the prices and increment in the services offered by the same carriers for the same prices.

The attractive plan of the both is the Rs. 342 one as it offers unlimited calling along with 28GB of data per month along with FUP of 1GB per day, same as the JioPrime plans.

⇒ Unlike the Vodafone and Airtel offer, this offer like Reliance Jio's offer is only for select subscribers. Prime members will get some additional benefits compared to regular subscribers if they subscribe for any of the plans.

Head of VR content Jason Rubin said this will facilitate expanding the VR ecosystem, and that this price is "sustainable". Of course, all these prices doesn't factor in the cost of the hardware needed to run the VR headsets in the first place.

The Rs4,999 plan under this offers 100GB 4G data with 30 days' validity to non-Prime users and 350GB 4G data with 180 days' validity to Prime users.

Big difference - No matter where you are, calling from your Jio number will be free. Airtel unveiled a new prepaid Rs. 345 plan which offers 1GB 4G data per day but users will be able to use only 500MB during the day and the remaining 500MB can be used from 3 AM to 5 AM. Customers who choose to buy this plan before the expiry period can avail the same offer for the next 11 months and get free data offers.

This one is meant for both Prime and non-Prime users looking for a cost-effective worldwide calling plan.

Note: Vodafone has issued a clarification that the Rs. 346 plan is a "segmented offering" that is only valid up to March 15th.

Earlier, the cheapest "Infinity" plan was the Rs 549 plan which offered 3GB of 4G data along with 100SMS/day, unlimited local/STD calls to any operator and free incoming roaming calls. A customer can make voice calls up to 300 minutes per day, and beyond that, he will be charged at standard rates. "(Do Jio) Why pay 2999 when u can get 56GB @499 without calling us", Jio tweeted. The only limitation here is that their internet speed will be reduced to 2G speeds if they go over the 2GB limit in one day. But they are offering only half the data i.e. 14GB for 28 days.
