Airtel on Wednesday revamped its flagship customer programme 'Airtel Thanks' with new offers and plans. My Airtel app has also been renamed to "Airtel Thanks" with a new UI, content and more.

Benefits and offers under Airtel Thanks now come in three tiers - silver, gold and platinum. Airtel has also for the first time expanded its Airtel Thanks benefits for prepaid customers. The revamped Airtel Thanks app also hosts content directly on the app. Here's a breakdown of everything that's new with Airtel Thanks.

Airtel Thanks - Silver, gold and platinum

Airtel customers under the silver tier will get access to basic content like Airtel TV and Wynk Music for free. Under gold tier, Airtel users get access to additional telecom benefits, premium content and financial services as well.

The most premium platinum tier comes bundled with 'VIP' services including e-books, exclusive invites and priority access to events and sales. Airtel postpaid users will now see which tier their current plan is a part of.

Airtel Thanks prepaid plan

A new prepaid plan under Airtel Thanks priced at 299 comes bundled with 28 days of Amazon Prime membership, 2.5GB data per day, unlimited calls and 100 SMS per day. Amazon Prime membership includes access to Prime Video and Prime Music. This prepaid plan will be available via retailers, Airtel's website and the new Airtel Thanks app.

With the revamped Airtel Thanks app, the telco has also integrated content on the platform. Users can now watch TV shows, movies, music videos directly on Airtel Thanks app from services like HOOQ, Zee5, and Wynk Music. The availability of content will depend on whether the user has access to such content.
