New Delhi, July 3: Jio has announced a new cashback scheme for its JioFi portable 4G router. The move is seen to boost the sales of the JioFi device. Under the new offer, customers will get cashback of Rs. 500, which effectively brings down the price of the JioFi device to Rs. 499. Jio had slashed the price of the JioFi from Rs. 1,999 to Rs. 999 in September last year. The offer is effective starting today, July 3, and there is no last date revealed so far. The JioFi can be purchased from Jio Store, as well as company's official website and other e-commerce websites such as Amazon and Flipkart, among others.
To get this JioFi cashback, the buyer needs to buy the device and a new postpaid SIM that will be used in it. The buyers will be offered a postpaid plan of minimum Rs. 199 value, and pay the bill for the same for 12 months. After the 12-month period, users will get Rs. 500 cashback in the form of credit that will be adjusted against the next bill cycles. If Jio postpaid plan is concerned the Rs. 199 plan offers 25GB of data and free voice calls, unlimited SMS, and subscriptions to Jio apps.
For prepaid Jio in last month gave additional 1.5GB data per day on all plans with a daily data cap. This means all the plans between Rs. 149 and Rs. 799 will get 1.5GB data extra per day for the entire validity period.
