India’s leading telecom operator Airtel and smartphone maker Samsung has announced a partnership in which Airtel will offer a cashback on a range of Samsung Galaxy J series 4G smartphone. The top four models from Samsung’s Galaxy J-series range – J2 (2017), J5 Prime, J7 Prime, and J7 Pro – will be available with cashback offers. Under this partnership, all devices will come bundled with Airtel’s recharge pack of Rs 199 that offers 1GB data/day and unlimited calling.
Company said that the Rs 1500 cashback will be disbursed to customers over 24 months. At the end of 12 months, customers who have done recharges (in any denomination of their choice) worth Rs 2500 will be eligible for the first instalment of Rs 300. They will be eligible for the second instalment of Rs 1200 provided they complete another set of recharges worth Rs 2500 over the next 12 months.
“This partnership with Airtel gives us another opportunity to enhance consumer experience, bringing together our popular Galaxy J series smartphones with their services at affordable prices. Today, every third smartphone sold in India is a Galaxy J series device. These smartphones are packed with several India-centric innovations developed at our R&D centres in the country under the Samsung ‘Make for India’ initiative,” said Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer, Samsung India.
The offer is available across India starting January 7, 2018. Anybody can purchase the smartphones from any Samsung retailer and get the recharges done at any Airtel retailer. After sales support for the device will be provided by Samsung through their service network. The ownership of the 4G smartphone is completely with the customer and there is no need to return the device to Airtel/Samsung at any point to claim the cash benefit.
