Jio appears to be doing a lot lately when it comes to providing discounts, cashback, and new plans for its users. The company had to take a tough decision of revoking its unlimited calling facility last month and it has ever since been trying its level best to incentivize its customers. The latest addition to the company’s efforts is the extension of the Jio Phone Diwali offer.
On top of this, the company has recently announced discounts on its INR 444 and INR 555 plans. In case you want to know how to avail them, you can head to our existing coverage of the same.
Jio Phone Diwali offer extends for yet another month
Last month, Jio kickstarted the Jio Phone Diwali 2019 offer that let the interested buyers get their hands on the Jio Phone at a special price of INR 699 during the Diwali season. In addition to a straight-up price cut of INR 801, the Diwali 2019 offer provided data benefits up to INR 693 to the buyers. Summing it all up, the effective price becomes somewhere around INR 1500 which is equal to the actual price of the device itself. It, however, must be noted that in order to avail the extra benefits, one has to get a minimum recharge worth INR 99 done. Furthermore, buyers will also have to buy a Jio SIM card to avail the offer.
Owing to this, the company has reportedly seen an overwhelming response from the customers that has motivated it to extend the offer for one more month.
“Under the Jio Phone Diwali Offer, Jio Phone witnessed an unprecedented record demand during the past 3 weeks, due to which Jio has decided to continue the onslaught for 1 additional month (November). The feature phone users who were not able to join the Jio movement during the Jio Phone Diwali offer, now get another month to avail the benefits of the festive offer and migrate to Jio Digital Life” – official statement by Jio.
