Jio kicked off the Jio Phone Diwali 2019 offer last month, giving buyers a chance to purchase the Jio Phone at a special price of Rs. 699 during the festive season. Jio claims to have received an overwhelmingly positive response for the offer and has now extended it by another month that will span November 2019. In addition to a price cut of Rs. 801, Jio will also offer data benefits worth Rs. 693 to customers, taking the total benefits tally to roughly Rs. 1,500, equivalent to the cost of the phone itself.
“Under the Jio Phone Diwali Offer, Jio Phone witnessed an unprecedented record demand during the past 3 weeks, due to which Jio has decided to continue the onslaught for 1 additional month (November). The feature phone users who were not able to join the Jio movement during the Jio Phone Diwali offer, now get another month to avail the benefits of the festive offer and migrate to Jio Digital Life”, Jio said in a statement.
As part of the Jio Phone Diwali 2019 offer, buyers can purchase the 4G-enabled Jio Phone at an upfront cost of Rs. 699, which translates to a discount of Rs. 801 on the Jio Phone's original asking price of Rs. 1,500. Jio will also offer data benefits worth Rs. 693 to customers that will be credited in the form of cellular data worth Rs. 99 for seven recharges in a row.
However, it must be noted that the minimum recharge value must be Rs. 99 per month in order to avail the extra benefits. Buyers will also have to purchase a Jio SIM to go with the offer. The Jio Phone Diwali 2019 offer is now live and will go through the whole month of November. You can learn more about the terms and conditions on this page.
