At the launch event earlier today, Xiaomi said that it had partnered with Reliance Jio to provide cashback of Rs 2,200 on both of its newly launched Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro smartphones. When Xiaomi said that it's instant cashback, everyone was taken by surprise, and to make things even more worse, Xiaomi did not even reveal the mode of cashback. Well, both the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro smartphone buyers will receive 44 vouchers worth Rs 50, which can be used only for future recharges on MyJio application.
To get the instant cashback of Rs 2,200 users should recharge with either the Rs 198 or Rs 299 tariff plan. Post the recharge; vouchers will be credited to the customer's Jio account. And as mentioned, these vouchers can be used for future recharges on MyJio app itself, and a user can not use more than one voucher for each transaction.
Alongside the cashback offer, Xiaomi also said that both the smartphone buyers would also receive double data on the first three recharges. So if you recharge with the Rs 198 plan, you will receive instant Rs 2,200 cashback and double data benefit too. The Rs 198 Jio tariff plan offers 2GB data per day, unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day for 28 days. So the plan basically offers 56GB of 4G data, but for the Note 5 and Note 5 Pro users, the data benefit will be doubled to 112GB. And they can enjoy the same benefit with the first recharges.
This is an excellent offer nonetheless, and if you're a heavy data user, you can recharge with a better data benefit plan to enjoy insane data.
This is not the first time Xiaomi partnering with Reliance Jio as both the companies collaborated for the Rs 1,000 cashback offer for the Xiaomi Redmi 5A. Already the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro smartphones are excellent value for money smartphones and the Reliance Jio offerings made the deal even better.
Xiaomi, earlier today announced the Redmi Note 5 at Rs 9,999 and Rs 11,999 alongside the special Redmi Note 5 Pro smartphone, which costs Rs 13,999 for the 4GB RAM variant and Rs 16,999 for the 6GB RAM variant. Both the phones will be available exclusively on Flipkart and Mi.com from February 22.
