Bharti Airtel has hit back at Vodafone India and Reliance Jio by partnering with Amazon for the free Amazon Prime membership for the customers. Airtel is offering one year of Amazon Prime subscription for both its postpaid and broadband users to lure more customers join the network. Airtel postpaid customers with a myPlan Infinity 499 and above are eligible for the offer, while the Airtel Broadband customers not on the base plan in any circle can avail the offer.
The Amazon Prime membership includes both Amazon Prime Video and standard Prime subscription for free & faster deliveries.

Coming to the Airtel broadband users, customers who're not on the base plan such as Rs 899 in Delhi, Gurgaon, etc. areas can claim the free Amazon Prime Video subscription. For details on eligible plans, customers can visit www.airtel.in/broadband.
The Amazon Prime Offer is on the basis of Postpaid/Broadband bill plan of the customer. Therefore, if customer downgrades bill plan to a non-eligible one, the offer will be revoked immediately.
