The telecom sector is seeing a lot of catfight among all the major players. In order to attract more customers and retain the existing ones, most players are going for predatory pricing or bombarding with additional benefits with recharges or plans. Vodafone is also doing the same and in a bid to keep its dominant market share intact, it has been offering freebies to all its prepaid customers whenever they make any kind of recharge.
The offer was launched almost a month ago for all Vodafone Idea prepaid customers. Under the plan, Vodafone is currently offering some or the other kind of benefit to its customers who make even the smallest kind of recharge. Hence, even if you make a small Talktime recharge, you will eligible for a reward.
The rewards range from free Talktime to extra data, cashback and caller tune for prepaid customers. The best about the offer is that the customer gets to choose the kind of benefit he/she wants to enjoy. Hence, if a Vodafone Idea customer wants to enjoy extra data, the subscriber can choose that. If more Talktime is preferred, that can be chosen over the others.
However, in order to avail the benefits, the subscriber needs to install the MyVodafone app or use the SMS-based system to activate the benefits. Every time a Vodafone Idea customer recharges, regardless of the value, the customer will get an SMS revert with a call to action. The customer needs to dial the USSD string *999# or go to My Vodafone or My Idea app to choose from an array of freebies and select the preferred offer. Post selection and consent, the freebie will be added to the customer’s number.
Vodafone Idea customers need to know that the offer is only valid until the first week of September 2019. Post that, these benefits won’t be applicable on any recharge.
This offer from Vodafone Idea clearly seems to be an answer to Airtel’s recently introduced #AirtelThanks benefits program that also offers lots of freebies and extra benefits to Airtel telecom and broadband customers upon recharging with the higher-priced plans. Jio doesn’t have any such benefit program for its customers but the operator still beats all of them when it comes to aggressive pricing and bundling extra benefits.
