Vodafone-Apple iPhone XS, XS Max Offer: Details and T&C
Firstly, to be eligible for the offer, a subscriber should purchase the all-new iPhone XS and XS Max smartphone from the Vodafone partner portal during the offering period. In addition, the customer should insert the Vodafone SIM card inside the handset, and he/she should be on a RED postpaid plan priced above Rs 399.
If a customer falls under the above-mentioned terms, then Vodafone will offer a 20% rental discount on RED 499 or above plans for 12 straight bills. A customer will also be eligible for the discount of the next bill cycle falling on or after 15 days from the date of purchase. Do make a note that Vodafone has the right to drop the offer if the customer requests for an account migration; for example, postpaid to prepaid, national MNP, postpaid account deactivation and plan downgrade to RED 399 or RED 299.
Also, the offer benefit is applicable for a 12-bill cycle period only. This offer will be useful for users on plans priced above Rs 999 because Vodafone is already offering free Netflix and Amazon Prime subscription, and if they want to purchase the new iPhones, they can make full use of this offer and avail a discount of 20%, which makes the postpaid plan even more affordable.
