- The subscriber should be able to access the offer through MyVodafone app
- The Amazon Prime membership will cost Rs 499 instead of Rs 999 for the Vodafone prepaid subscribers
Update: Vodafone confirmed that this offer is coming soon for all the prepaid customers across the country. At the moment, we’re not sure on the timeline though.
Vodafone is known for its unique offerings in the industry. The UK-based telco has a unique offering under its sleeves for its prepaid subscribers aged between 18 and 24 range. With the increasing competition in the prepaid and postpaid segment, the telecom operators are finding refuge in content-based offerings to boost the sales of their plans. While Bharti Airtel has racked up its postpaid plans with Netflix subscription to increase its attractiveness, Vodafone and Idea are shipping Amazon Prime membership for their customers. Also, there is the fact to consider that the users who are most attracted to these plans are the youth. Whether it is any OTT platform, Netflix or Amazon Prime, you will mostly find the people between age 18 to 24 with most subscriptions to their name. To have more attention of these subscribers, Vodafone has introduced an ‘Amazon Prime for Youth‘ offer.
Vodafone Amazon Prime for Youth Offer Details
The Youth Offer by Vodafone will avail the Amazon Prime membership to the subscribers between age 18 and 24 at just half the price. It is worth noting that Vodafone has rolled out this offer for prepaid customers and this will not be valid for the postpaid subscribers of Vodafone. Vodafone, in its website, has written that when Vodafone subscribers between 18—24 age buy a one year Amazon Prime membership, they will get 50% off on the total subscription amount. It is also worth noting that the Amazon Prime subscription will get the users to access not only perks like faster delivery and access to Prime sales, but they will also be able to access Amazon’s music streaming platform, Amazon Prime Music and its OTT platform Amazon Prime Video which hosts thousands of on-demand videos and TV series.
For postpaid subscribers, Vodafone is already providing free Amazon Prime subscription for one year with all its postpaid plans starting at Rs 399.
Things to Keep in Mind
Without the Vodafone U prepaid offer of 50%, a regular Amazon Prime membership would set back the buyer by Rs 999, however, combined with this offer, subscribers of Vodafone prepaid plan would be able to get it for Rs 499. Vodafone has also detailed that to avail the offer you will first need to download the My Vodafone app. After downloading the application, you will need to tap on the banner which you see on the front to make use of the offer provided to you. In case you already have the MyVodafone app, and you aren’t able to see the banner, then you will need to update your app once. Vodafone has also clarified that in case you are already an Amazon Prime member then the offer won’t be of much use to you unless you use it after your current subscription expires. Also, people in the age of 18 to 24, who are using someone else’s SIM card won’t get the benefit, and they will have to get a new Vodafone SIM in their name along with the eKYC to take advantages of this offer.
