Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has been doubling down on its broadband plans for quite some time now. BSNL initially launched the Amazon Prime benefit offer for the subscribers of its broadband plans who get a connection with a monthly rental of Rs 745 or more. But then, later, BSNL made a change to this offer and notified that subscribers with BSNL broadband plan of Rs 499 or below would also be able to get Amazon Prime benefit, albeit with a catch. While the Rs 745 broadband plans ship this offer, any broadband plan subscribed for 12 months is going to get BSNL broadband subscribers the Amazon Prime benefit.
How to Get Amazon Prime Membership on BSNL Broadband Plans Below Rs 499?
BSNL has introduced changes to its cashback scheme on broadband plans alongside adding new benefit in the form of Amazon Prime membership. BSNL is offering up to 25% cashback on its broadband plans and the plans include DSL, Bharat Fiber and BBoWiFi. Existing or new BSNL customers choosing broadband plans below Rs 900 (including the ones priced below Rs 499) are eligible for the cashback offer and Amazon Prime membership.
BSNL is providing 15% cashback on broadband plans priced below Rs 499; 20% cashback on broadband plans priced between Rs 499 and Rs 900 and 25% cashback on Rs 900 and above broadband plans. That said, customers have to choose the same plan for 12 months (one year) to be eligible for the cashback offer. And if a customer chooses the plans in the price range mentioned above, BSNL will be offering them one-year of Amazon Prime membership for free. So if a BSNL customer chooses a yearly broadband plan, the company will provide up to 25% of cashback and Rs 999 worth of Amazon Prime subscription for free. For the unaware, Amazon Prime membership benefits include free access to Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Music, faster product shipping and early access to any sales on Amazon.in.
BSNL is also providing cashback on annual landline plans (without broadband data). The BSNL landline plans of any denomination will offer users 15% cashback if a customer chooses it for one year, but do make a note that there won't be any Amazon Prime membership on offer with landline plans.
