Jio effect: Airtel launches 100% cashback offer
To counter Jio's new cashback offer, Airtel has come up with its own scheme: 100% cashback when you recharge with a Rs. 348/349 unlimited pack. However, the offer varies among customers: some might get 100% cashback on other packs, and others might get different cashback values. The Rs. 349 pack offers unlimited calling and data (300 minutes and 1GB data daily) for 28 days.
Log in to the My Airtel app. It will show you the offers available on your number. To get back the entire cashback amount, you have to recharge multiple times. You can use the money on over 1mn outlets across India that accept Airtel Bank payments. However, Airtel hasn't announced till when the 'Diwali offer' will be available.
This comes days after Jio launched a 100% cashback offer on its 399 plan. Subscribers would get eight vouchers of Rs. 50 on their MyJio app. However, it increased prices and reduced validity of several packs yesterday, signaling a potential end to India's telecom wars. Since Jio's entry, the industry suffered heavy losses as rivals were forced to drop rates drastically to retain customers.
