Today is 1st of March and starting from now, we all have a 30-day window to pay Rs 99 and get the Jio Prime membership subscription. So, does it make sense to join the club of elite members who get special offers from Jio? Who are eligible to be Prime members? How to get it? Let’s find all the answers
Well, before raising further doubts or questions, let’s talk about the benefits of Jio Prime Membership and how does it stand against other have to offer.
Jio users have been enjoying the benefits of free 4G data and unlimited voice calling for a while now. Well, with Jio Prime membership, they can avail the same offer by paying Rs 303 per month for next one year. That means you can continue to enjoy free unlimited voice calling, 4G data and SMS till 31st March 2018. Of course, it also includes the Fair Usage Policy (FUP) which came into effect on 1st January; your 4G data speed is limited to 1GB per day (28GB per month), post that usage your data speed will be throttled to 128kbps. For Prime members, Jio is also offering extra data on other plans such as Rs 499 and higher.
Well, Rs 303 is not a small amount, especially when it comes to paying for the mobile bill. But, let’s compare it what other telecoms offer. Vodafone is currently offering 2GB 4G data and unlimited voice calling for 28 days for Rs 245 to select customers which is still costlier than Jio. According to recent reports, Airtel is offering 14GB of 4G data, unlimited voice calling for Rs 349 to counter Jio’s offers, but it only seems to got half way there.
So, moral of the story is that no other major telecom player has anything better to offer. So, it perfectly makes sense to opt for Jio Prime membership subscription. Even considering my case where I completely rely on my Wifi network and never use mobile data, I would gladly pay Rs 99 for Jio Prime to enjoy benefits when I need to.
Talking about eligibility criteria, everyone who owns a Jio SIM or will get one before 31st March is eligible to get Jio Prime Membership.
Now, coming to the last question, i.e., how to get the Jio Prime membership?
You could enrol for Jio Prime Membership by paying Rs 99 at your nearest Jio Store, Jio Partner Store or Reliance store. You could also get it from My Jio or Jio Money app.
So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead make it the best Rs 99 you’ve spent.
