Airtel Announces Freebies to Customers: 10GB Free Data, Netflix, Amazon, Zee5 Premium Subscription

Airtel keeps churning out new ways of keeping its subscriber-base with innovative offers. The company has succeeded in holding onto its customers inspite of the onslaught of attractive offers from rival Reliance Jio.


Airtel is offering exclusive benefits to select subscribers under the #AirtelThanks reward program. The offer includes free access to premium content, offers on smartphones, shopping vouchers, and several other deals from partner companies. The Airtel subscribers contributing a monthly average revenue of Rs. 100 or above will be eligible for the deals. The key highlights of the reward program include free subscriptions to Netflix and ZEE5.

Free Netflix Subscription for Three Months

Airtel users subscribed to Infinity Postpaid plans, priced at Rs. 499 or above will be eligible for a free three months Netflix subscription worth Rs. 1,500. The offer will be applicable for the existing as well as new Netflix subscribers. In order to avail the offer, you can head over to the #AirtelThanks section in the MyAirtel app or the Airtel TV app and activated it. Note that the existing Netflix subscribers will get the free credits in their accounts only.

The cashback will be provided in the form of vouchers: one Rs. 2,000 MakeMyTrip voucher and 50 recharge vouchers of Rs. 50 each.

Upcoming Benefits for Airtel V-Fiber Users

For now, the exclusive offers from Airtel are meant for its postpaid and prepaid subscribers. However, the telecom operator has announced that it will extend the offerings to its Airtel V-Fiber home broadband subscribers in near future. Airtel has also stated that benefits will totally depend on the estimated value a customer brings. The commited customers subscribed to higher plans for a longer period of time will get more offers. These offers will include access to Airtel’s red carpet customer care that deals in top class service and network related problems.

With a massive subscriber base, Airtel is one of the top telecom operators in India. Although, Reliance Jio rolls out the most cost-effective recharge plans with unlimited data and other benefits, Airtel still manages to maintain the lead. The Infinity postpaid plans from the telco are particularly popular. Besides, Airtel also offers complimentary subscriptions to exclusive content and other freebies with its high-end plans. The telecom operator has recently rolled out several data-centric and long-term validity plans to attract more users.
