Jio discontinues Summer Surprise offer but you can still subscribe; here's how
Reliance Jio on Thursday said that it is bringing an end to the extension of Jio Prime membership offer and Summer Surprise Offer as advised by telecom regulator TRAI.
“Jio accepts this decision. Jio is in the process of fully complying with the regulator’s advice, and will be withdrawing the 3 months complimentary benefits of JIO SUMMER SURPRISE as soon as operationally feasible, over the next few days,” Reliance Industries said in a statement late Thursday.
The company, on March 31, 2017, offered three months of complimentary services to its Jio Prime customers who recharged their Jio numbers for Rs 303 or higher.
Jio had said, “Every Jio Prime member, when they make their first paid recharge prior to 15th April using Jio’s Rs 303 plan (or any higher value plan), will get services for the initial 3 months on a complimentary basis. The paid tariff plan will be applied only in July, after the expiry of the complimentary service."
With TRAI's recommendation, Jio said that it is working to end the offer over the next few days. The company said that the offer will also continue for those who have already subscribed to the plan prior to TRAI’s announcement.
“All customers who have subscribed to Jio Summer Surprise offer prior to its discontinuation will remain eligible for the offer,” Jio added.
But there is still some time if you want to subscribe to the offer before it is discontinued.
