Reliance Jio has been asked to withdraw the ‘Summer Surprise offer’ by TRAI. Now as Jio has stated in its statement, this doesn’t affect people who had already claimed the offer. So if you had already moved onto the Jio Summer Surprise pack, then you’re safe.
Has Jio withdrawn the offer already? Is there a chance to claim it still?
As Jio’s statement claims, they are in the process of withdrawing the offer. According to the website, this will take place over the next few days, though there is no deadline given as such. So yes, it looks like there is still time to claim this offer, if you are going for a recharge on the Jio website.
We tried recharging a Jio number, where Summer Surprise had not been applied, and the offer was still valid.
So this ‘Summer Surprise’ offer is totally free right?
Well, not technically since you are paying Jio a total of Rs 402 (Rs 99 for the Prime membership and Rs 303 for the recharge) in order to get extra three months of free period. If you’ve already made this payment, your free service will continue for the next three months uninterrupted and Jio’s paid recharge will kick in from July 2017.
