Reliance Jio Surprise Cashback offer comes with up to Rs 3300 being promised to users, but here’s how this really works.
Reliance Jio has announced a new ‘Surprise cashback offer’, which will come into effect from December 26 to January 15, 2018. As part of the offer customers will get a cashback of up to Rs 3,300 on recharges of Rs 399 and above done on the network. The cashback will be effective on recharges before January 15, 2018. According to Jio’s website, the ‘Surprise cashback offer’ will include Rs 400 MyJio cashback vouchers, up to Rs 300 instant cashback vouchers on digital wallets and up to Rs 2,600 discount vouchers from e-commerce players.
The terms and conditions are similar to Jio’s earlier “Triple cashback offer”, which the company had announced in November. In the latest Jio ‘Surprise cashback offer’, the company will again give out eight vouchers of Rs 50 (total comes to Rs 400 in vouchers), which can be used to get recharges done on the Jio network itself. These vouchers are credited to the MyJio app itself.
Additionally, Jio has partnered with e-wallets like Amazon Pay, Paytm, PhonePe, MobiKwik, Axis Pay, and Freecharge to give a certain amount as instant cashback. However, not every e-wallet is getting Rs 300 back. While Amazon Pay users will get Rs 100 instant cashback for both new and existing customers, new users on Paytm will get Rs 50 cashback, but existing users will only get Rs 30.
New users on PhonePe app get Rs 75, while existing ones will get Rs 30 and new users on Axis Pay get Rs 100 as cashback. Once again for existing customers on Axis Pay, the cashback is limited to Rs 30. On FreeCharge too, new users will get Rs 50 as cashback while existing customers get Rs 30. On MobiKwik, new and existing users will get Rs 300 MobiKwik (as SuperCash), though they have to use the code JIOGIFT at the time of the recharge.
On the e-commerce side, Reliance Jio is partnering with Zoomcar, OYO Rooms, Yatra, Paytm Mall, Gorfers and Bigbasket. Customers will get vouchers from these partners on a Jio recharge of more than Rs 399. In case of Zoomcar, users will get 20 per cent OFF on Zoomcar up to Rs 1,000. In OYO Rooms, they will get a 30 per cent discount voucher on OYO Hotel booking and 50 per cent OYO Money cashback up to Rs 1,500. On the Paytm Mall, consumers will get a voucher for 100 per cent cashback up to Rs 2,000 on minimum purchase of Rs 10,000.
Jio has also partnered with BigBasket and is offering 20 per cent off on a minimum purchase of Rs 600. In case of Grofers, it will offer a voucher for flat Rs 300 cashback on order of Rs 1500. Finally on Yatra, users can expect a voucher with Rs 1,000 off on roundtrip and Rs 500 off on one way on domestic flight tickets. The expiry date for these coupons is March 31, 2018.
For the new year, Jio has already announced two new monthly plans of Rs 199 and Rs 299 offering up to 2GB of daily data. Despite its competitive pricing, Reliance Jio has over the past year used cashback offers also to woo customers. Along with a 100 per cent cashback offer on its recharges, it soon brought it a “triple cashback offer” to push people to take up online recharges.
Earlier this month, the company announced the Reliance Jio Happy New Year 2018prepaid recharge offer for Rs 199 and Rs 299 plans. The Rs 199 plan gives users 1.2GB daily data while the Rs 299 plan will offer 2GB data per day. Reliance Jio Happy New Year 2018 plans come with unlimited free access to voice calls, unlimited SMS, and access to Jio’s suite of apps. Validity for the new plans is 28 days each. Jio’s Rs 199 plans offers a total of 33.6GB data for the validity period, while the Rs 299 gives users a total of 56GB data for 28 days.
