Telecom giant Airtel has rolled out a referral program for its postpaid users. According to the programs, the company will provide a Rs 150 discount on the bills to the users taking part in the program. This means that Airtel prepaid customers will get Rs 150 discount coupons for each friend that they invite to join the network. In addition to awarding the user referring, the company will also award a Rs 150 discount coupon to the referee who will join the network. The company is allowing postpaid customers to generate a referral link from the “My Airtel” app.

According to a report by Telecomtalk, the ability to generate the referral links is only limited to the mobile app at the time of writing. Taking a closer look at how the process works, interested users only need to follow three steps for the referral. The Rs 150 discount will be provided to you in the form of three Rs 50 coupons. The coupons will be added to your My Airtel account “within 24 hours” of successful activation of the Airtel postpaid connection by your friend or family member.

There is no limit on the number of people that an Airtel postpaid customer can share their referral link with. Though, the company will only give rewards for a total to ten successful referrals.

Another thing to note here is that the discount coupons can only be used while paying for the postpaid bills of “the registered numbers for both the referee and the referrer.” This means that you can’t just use the referral awards to pay for bills for any other postpaid number.

To generate the referral link, users need to go to the notifications area in the app and then tap on the notification for the postpaid referral scheme. Tapping on that notification will navigate you to the screen where you can generate the referral link.
