As a result, prepaid plans have become affordable, calling has become free on most plans, and data has become cheaper. And while there are constant revisions in prepaid plans, the postpaid plans don’t see much of action. Recently, both Airtel and Vodafone revised their postpaid plans to offer more data and among other benefits.

A part of offering on Vodafone postpaid plans include complimentary Amazon Prime subscription for one-year. In terms of benefits, users get free two-day prime shipping, along with subscription to Amazon Music and Prime Video. And these benefits are applicable for Rs 399 postpaid plans and above. Now, Airtel has also revised its postpaid plans to offer complimentary Amazon Prime subscription for a year.

According to TelecomTalk, Airtel postpaid customers on Rs 399 plan can now redeem free Amazon Prime membership worth Rs 999 for one-year. To redeem, users need to download My Airtel or Airtel TV app, where they will find a banner to redeem the Amazon Prime membership. Do note that if you already have Amazon Prime subscription, you’ll have to wait until it ends.

Additionally, customers also get an access to Airtel TV and Wynk Music, and a Rs 51 Amazon Pay gift card. Lastly, Airtel is also offering Rs 50 discount on the bill for first six months, which brings down the effective cost of the plan to just Rs 349.
