Airtel offering 100 per cent cashback on Rs 349 recharge. Conditions apply
The tariff war continues. And it's not going to end anytime soon.To commemorate the festive season, Jio introduced a limited period offer called the new Dhan Dhana Dhan -- under which the company offered a 100 per cent cashback to customers on recharging with Rs 399 plan. This Jio offer was for a limited period and is no longer available. Airtel has never been very far behind to counter Jio at every step. Continuing the same, Airtel has introduced a new offer -- under which the company is offering 100 per cent cashback on recharging with Rs 349 plan. This is also a limited period offer and is available only for the prepaid users. But then, Airtel users will get the cashback in installments and there are some conditions to get the offer.
The Rs 349 cashback offer was introduced back at the time of Diwali alongside the new Jio Dhan Dhana offer and is still available. However, this is also a limited period offer, as mentioned by Airtel and may end anytime soon. But then, as of now, Airtel hasn't revealed the last date of the offer. So, how does this offer actually works?
This is not a direct cashback offer and the refund will be made in intervals. Airtel prepaid users will have to recharge their numbers with Rs 349. While recharging, the customer will have to pay the recharge amount, but then, they will get the refund of the entire money (Rs 349) in the next few months. It should be noted that the cashback of the Rs 349 will be made in 7 installments -- this means that the total money (Rs 349) will be refunded over the period of 7 months. To avail the offer, the Airtel user will have to head on to My Airtel application and recharge with Rs 349 (only) via Airtel Payments Bank.
How and when will Airtel refund the money?
The user will not get any refund for the first month. The cashback will be offered from the next month, and only Rs 50 cashback will be available at a time. For instance, you recharge your Airtel number with Rs 349 today. For now, you'll make the payment. However on your next recharge, starting next month Airtel will offer a cashback of Rs 50. This will continue for the consecutive 7 months at a stretch.
This means that, Airtel will refund back Rs 349 over a period of 7 months. The calculation goes like - Rs 50 (every month) X 7 (months) = Rs 350. It is noteworthy that, this offer is applicable only on Rs 349 recharges. The offer is listed on My Airtel app.
Under the Rs 349 plan - prepaid Airtel users will get up to 28GB of data for 28 days. There is a FUP limit of 1GB data per day along with unlimited voice calls to any other network.
