Jio Summer Surprise Offer Details: India literally loved every moment with Reliance Jio and the telecom base in India grown multiple times post announcement of offers by Mukesh Ambani. The competition for other companies seems to be getting denser with the introduction of Jio Summer Surprise offer exclusively for loyal customers of company.
The History: Earlier Indian Telecom operators used to false charge the customers in the name of data and ringtone services. Jio came with one-time payment plan considering the growth of Internet in India. The One time payment started giving amazing offers to the customers. (Check: Xiaomi Mi6 & Mi 6 Plus.)
During the early months before official launch, Jio came up with secret offer for only customers purchasing the device manufactured by company. During the secret offer, there was no limitation of data usage and every customer gets unlimited data daily. Sometimes usage from a single SIM exceeds 50 GB per day because of great transfer speeds. Later as the user base started growing, Jio introduces unlimited data with 4GB high speed capping which was lately reduced to 1 GB.
During this time Jio was actually testing the actual capabilities of the server in the most difficult situations. By this time the demand of 4G VoLTE handsets increased in India multiple times because of free data offerings.
From 1st April 2017, Jio decided to put a stop on free users of services. Now the customers got introduced with service named Jio Prime which entitles one to enter the prime club of loyal customers. One need to pay 99rs FRC (First Recharge) and then the services will continue to be cheap for the next 1 year. After introduction of the basic plan, Jio SummerSurprise Offer came into the market.
What is Jio Summer Surprise Offer?
It’s the offer to allow users get data recharge for around 101 rs per month (Recharge to be done of 303 rs). This plan is not valid on low value recharges of 149 rs and below. One need to first join the Jio Prime membership and then a recharge of 303 rs.
Jio Prime membership will not give you benefit of data or call services. You need to recharge with data pack thereof. After recharging with 303 rs in April, you will get complete three month free services on the existing plan. For example, If Mr. A recharges with 99rs first and then 303 rs on 4th of April, he will get free services of 1GB per day data and calling services till 4th July 2017. Before recharge of 303rs, user shall not be able to access any type of data or calling feature.
If someone recharged before 31st March with 303 pack and joined Jio Prime Membership as well, he would be able to avail free services under Jio Summer Surprise Offer till July 1, 2017.
If someone recharged with 499/999 plan instead of 303, he would receive 2 GB data per day absolutely free for next 2 months as well. We are still awaiting a confirmation from Jio whether the plan of 999 rs which has 60 days validity will get 90 or 180 days validity. However, it appears that the company is only offering it for 90 days.
Procedure to claim free data under Jio Summer Surprise Offer 2017
- Recharge with 99 rs to Join Prime Membership
- Recharge with 303/499 rs to get into a plan
- Both should be done before 15th of April to avail free data benefits.
