Yes, Jio has extended the Happy New Year Offer until 15th April 2017. This is due to the extension of Jio prime subscription. This 15 days will be a buffer period for the users to join Jio prime membership and get complimentary offers.

What happens if I have not subscribed to Jio Prime Membership by 15th April 2017?

After 15th April 2017, you will be converted to the normal Jio user and you have to recharge any plans to continue to use the Jio services. Please note that you will not get the additional benefits like the Jio prime members and also you will not get the Summer Suprise offer.

What is Jio Summer Surprise offer and what are the benefits?

Jio has announced the new Summer Surprise offer for the Jio prime members. The Summer Surprise offer will extend the Jio paid benefits for next 3 months with a minimum recharge of Rs.303 or higher values. This is a complimentary offer by Jio for the Prime members alone.

The users will get the benefits of the paid packs available. In order to get the Summer Surprise offer, you must be a Jio Prime member.

Jio Summer Surprise offer will be applicable to all Jio Prime members who recharge for Rs.303 or more with the corresponding pack benefits. The corresponding paid service will activate after July.

What happens if I recharged for Rs.499 or higher values?

The corresponding pack benefits will be applicable for 3 months as a complimentary offer. Check out the above image for clarification.

What is the minimum Recharge Value to get the Jio Prime + Jio Summer Surprise Offer?

You have first subscribed to Jio Prime by recharging your Jio number for Rs.99 and then you have to recharge with minimum value plan of 303 or even higher plans to Summer Surprise Offer.

Hence the minimum amount you have recharge to get the benefits is Rs. 99+ Rs. 303 = Rs. 402.

How long the Jio Summer Surprise Offer Valid?

If you subscribe for Summer Surprise Offer on or before 15 April 2017, the validity will be until June which will be around 3 months. Your paid tariff plan will be applied only in July, after the expiry of the complimentary Summer Surprise Offer service.

What if I Recharged for Rs.149?

If you recharge for Rs.149 you won’t get the Summer Surprise Offer benefits, hence you can recharge again your number with Rs.303 or higher value to get the additional benefits. After the complimentary service of 3 months, then Rs. 149 (FRC) benefit will be available in the 4th month July and the benefits of Rs.303 or higher value you recharge will be available in the 5th month August.

Which is the best Jio Summer Surprise plan to Subscribe?

I would suggest you subscribe for the Rs.499 Plan, which will give you 2 GB / day for 4 months and it is one of the best budget plans.

Will I get the unlimited data between 2 AM to 5 AM on the Summer Surprise Offer?

This offer is yet to be confirmed by the Jio team. We will update once we get the official confirmation. Watch this space for the updates.

What if I recharge multiple times to get the additional data (Buy one get one offer), will all the recharges are not valid?

Don’t worry. No matter the number of recharges you paid for additional data. All the recharges are accountable, but the benefits will be available after July. Until that you will get the Summer Surprise Offer.
