Vodafone on Thursday announced a 50 percent discount for its prepaid subscribers when buying an Amazon Prime subscription. According to the offer, the telecom operator's prepaid subscribers between the age of 18-24 can avail a one-year Amazon Prime subscription at Rs. 499, down from the regular Rs. 999 price tag. Amazon Prime membership offers access to free one-day shipping and discounted same-day shipping on Amazon.in, Prime Video, and Prime Music. As part of Vodafone's youth offer for Amazon Prime, only prepaid users aged between 18 to 24 are eligible to avail this discount.
It can be availed by signing up on the MyVodafone app and paying the amount of Rs. 499 through the app's payment modes. Once done, users can sign in to their Amazon.in account to activate Prime membership on app or website.
The telecom giant also suggests availing the offer before July 16 to be be eligible for exclusive deals during Prime Day, a 36-hour sale that will be held on Amazon.in starting 12pm on July 16. Prime Day 2018 is expected to bring over 200 exclusive product launches, exclusive discounts, new titles on Prime Video, and contests on Prime Music.
