New Delhi: Reliance Jio’s ‘Happy New Year’ offer is ending on March 31, which means no more free unlimited data usage from April onwards. To retain its subscriber base, Jio has introduced a new Jio Prime membership plan which will allow users to continue the benefits of the Happy New Year offer for one year.
The user has to a pay Rs. 99 subscription fee and Rs. 303 monthly fee for using unlimited data (1GB cap per day) for a year. However, if you recharge through the Jio Money wallet, you can get the Jio Prime membership for free.
As Financial Express points out this workaround, and it allows users to attain up to Rs. 100 recharge if a subscriber recharges through the Jio Money Wallet app. To get the Prime subscription fee waived off, download the Jio Money Wallet app, register on it, and create a four-digit m-pin for safety.
Once the registration process is over, recharge Rs. 99 for the Prime membership plan, and you will be awarded a Rs. 50 cashback as part of their introductory offer. Jio Money is also offering further Rs. 50 cashback on all recharges above Rs. 303, and hence recharging for your first month right away will give you further Rs. 50 cashback. All in all you will receive Rs. 100 cashback, which is equivalent to the Prime subscription rate. It is important to note that the cashback will be refunded in two working days as Jio vouchers in the Jio Money app itself.
The last date for getting a Prime subscription is March 31, after which you may have to pay more for the same plan. Paytm is offering Rs. 10 cashback on joining the Rs. 99 Jio Prime plan through the app. This offer is available for all users using the promo code JioPrime. The Rs. 303 plan, which offers Prime customers on prepaid 28GB of high-speed data for 28 days with FUP of 1GB per day, will get you Rs. 30 off (for up to 2 recharges) via the app using the promo code PrimeJio. Additional benefits on recharging Rs. 303 via the app include up to Rs. 150 cashback on purchase of two movie tickets and free Jio add-on pack worth Rs. 201.
