Reliance Jio Rs 2,200 cashback offer
As part of its aggressive approach at penetrating the smartphone and telecom business, Jio announced the instant cashback scheme for new 4G smartphones. The offer is said to be valid until March 31, 2018. However, given the track record of the company’s extension of such offers, this too might be extended beyond the said date. Here’s how it works.
In order to avail the offer on the purchase of a new 4G smartphone, you are required to make the first Jio recharge of Rs 198 or Rs 299. The moment you do so, you will be credited with a total of 44 vouchers of Rs 50 each, amounting to the total cashback of Rs 2,200. This will be credited to the MyJio account. You can use these vouchers for subsequent recharges of Rs 198 and Rs 299 through the MyJio app. In addition to the cashback, you also get 60GB of additional 4G data.
