High-flying telecom operator Reliance Jio today modified its Surprise Cashback offer it introduced at the end of 2017. Under the revised offer, Jio is offering more than 100% cashback of up to Rs 700, which divides to Rs 400 vouchers to MyJio app and up to Rs 300 instant cashback to partner e-commerce portals. So Jio is no more offering e-commerce portal vouchers worth Rs 2,600 like earlier. The overall cashback Jio now offering is up to Rs 700 on a recharge of Rs 398 or above.
Customers who're recharging with Jio's tariff plans worth Rs 398 or above will now receive Rs 400 cashback vouchers to the MyJio account. These cashback vouchers will be credited as eight Rs 50 vouchers which takes the total value to Rs 400. Even though if you recharge with the plan above Rs 398, you'll get the same Rs 400 cashback.
Next up, Jio has partnered with digital wallet portals such as Amazon Pay, Paytm, Mobikwik, PhonePe, Axis Pay, and Freecharge. For Amazon Pay users, Jio is offering Rs 50 cashback, for Paytm users, Jio is offering Rs 50 cashback for new users and Rs 30 cashback for existing users. The entire cashback value with various portals is in the image below.
Furthermore, this new more than 100% cashback offer will be live until January 31, 2018. Post that, Jio may completely remove the offer or modify it with fewer or more benefits. To recall, at the end of 2017, Jio introduced a Surprise Cashback offer of Rs 3,000, under which it offered Rs 400 cashback to MyJio application, Rs 300 instant cashback to partner wallet apps, and Rs 2,600 worth e-commerce vouchers.
Also, the Rs 50 cashback voucher on MyJio application can be used only one at a time and are not transferable. Also, these vouchers are valid for maximum five recharges and up to five voucher purchases on your Jio number at any given point of time during the offer period. Overall, it's a nice move from Jio to stop offering the e-commerce vouchers as it became a hassle for users to find out the minimum value for redeeming the vouchers.
