In a world where every smartphone maker is pushing 5G to consumers, Airtel has come up with a cashback offer that promotes upgrading to 4G smartphones. Customers of Airtel will be eligible for a cashback offer of up to INR 6,000 over the course of three years. However, there are certain terms and conditions to follow throughout this period. Also, you need to be a member of the Airtel Payments bank.
In essence, the benefit is available for those who are upgrading to a smartphone for the first time; that too an entry-level Android phone. Airtel is partnering with Samsung, Xiaomi, Realme, Vivo, Oppo Tecno, Nokia, Infinix, Itel, Motorola, Lava, and Lenovo on their affordable entry-level Android smartphones.

Here are all the requirements one needs to fulfil in order to avail the offer.
- The offer is applicable on the eligible smartphone bought on October 8, 2021 or later.
- The smartphone needs to be a 4G only device. Here’s the list of all eligible models.
- Buyers will have a period of 30 days to opt-in for this offer after buying the phone.
