Idea Cellular offers cashback up to ₹2,000 on Karbonn phones
The scheme will be available from February 1.
Amid a raging price war among telecom operators, Idea Cellular on Tuesday lined up for its customers fresh cashback offers on various smartphones and feature phones from Karbonn.
The cashbacks range from ₹1,000-2,000 depending on the handset, and will be available from February 1.
A cashback offer of ₹1,500 on Karbonn Smartphones (A41 Power, A9 Indian) and ₹2,000 (on Yuva 2) will "considerably bring down the cost of ownership of 4G devices for Idea customers", an Idea statement said.
For A41 Power, A9 Indian (priced at ₹2,999 and ₹3,699 respectively), ₹500 will be credited in the Idea Money wallet at the end of 18 months, and the balance ₹1,000 at the end of 36 months.
"To avail the cashback on A41 Power, A9 Indian and Yuva 2, customers need to have a cumulative recharge value of ₹3,000 for the first 18 months and the same amount during the next 18 months period," it added.
The statement said customers can go for ₹169 recharge which will give them unlimited local and STD Calls, free roaming, 1GB/day Data, and 100 SMS per day, with 28 day validity.
In the feature phone segment, the company has announced a cashback of ₹1,000 on Karbonn handsets (K310n, K24+ and K9 Jumbo).
"For availing the offer on feature phones, Idea customers need to do a cumulative recharge of ₹2,700 in the first 18 months to get cashback of ₹500, and another ₹2,700 between 19-36 months to get the remaining ₹500," Idea said.
Cashback will be offered in the form of talktime in the customer's main account, it added.
The move comes at a time when telecom sector has entered into a fresh round of tariff war and offers. Recently, Reliance Jio decided to offer 500 MB extra data to its subscribers using 1GB and 1.5 GB per day data packs with effect from January 26.
It also announced lowest rental plan of ₹49 in which it will offer unlimited voice and data for 28 days for JioPhone subscribers, effective January 26.
