Reliance Jio on Friday extended Jio Prime service till April 15 enthused by the response the premium service received in the past few weeks. The company said the service has been extended due to the overwhelming response from the customers.
Over 72 million Jio customers have signed up for Jio Prime membership, the company said in a statement.
“Customers who could not enrol for Jio Prime by March 31 for whatever reason can still do so by paying Rs 99 along with their first purchase of Jio’s Rs 303 and other plans till April 15,” the company said in a statement. This means all existing and first-time Jio users can still avail Prime and the host of benefits that the scheme brings along with it until April 15 provided they make their first-time recharge of Rs 303 or lower depending on the tariff they wish to chose. Prime was supposed to technically end on March 31 previously.
“This extension will provide the necessary breathing room for users to avoid service disruption during the transition from free to paid services,” the company said.
JIO SUMMER SURPRISE
Jio has also announced a Jio Summer Surprise exclusively for its Prime customers. Prime customers who make the first recharge before April 15 using its Rs 303 plan (or higher) will get complimentary services for first three months. Regular tariff plans will be applicable from July, once the complimentary service ends.
“This complimentary period will also help to familiarise Jio customers with Jio’s fully digital, self-service process of using the MyJio app to perform recharges and to set up digital payment methods for further purchases,” Ambani said.
Subscribers, both old and new, can avail the offer through Rs 99 recharge pack. There a number of ways in which this can be done. “Recharge with Rs 99 Jio Prime membership before 31 March 2017 from MyJio, JioMoney, Jio.com or nearest retailer,” notes the company.
