|Reliance Jio has tied up with 22 handset manufacturers and will offer to new as well as existing subscribers cash back of `2,200 if they purchase a smartphone and recharge it with the operator’s `198 or `299 plans.|
The operator accounts for 50% of the 4G handsets market share and through the ‘Football Offer’, it aims at increasing its subscriber market share.
Under the new cash back offer, its fourth since November 2017, all existing and new Jio customers, who purchase a smartphone and do a recharge with its Rs 198 or Rs 299 plans, will become eligible for 44 vouchers of Rs 50 that will be credited to the customers’ MyJio account.
The latest offer is valid from February 16 to March 31, 2018 and Jio subscribers can use vouchers for recharges till May 2022.
Jio has partnered with 22 handset makers including Huawei, Samsung, Xiaomi, Noika, Motorola, Micromax, Panasomic, LG and Blackberry. However, the offer is applicable only on the Indian variants of eligible devices.
The Jio Football Offer is available for all eligible devices, whether purchased from brick and mortar stores or from e-commerce sites in the country during the offer period.
Jio’s cash back offers have become sharper and more frequent since it hiked tariffs by reducing the validity of the voucher in October 2017.
The first such offer was launched in November 2017 and expired on January 15. The second cash back offer expired on January 31, while the third one expired on Thursday (February 15).
