Airtel recharge offer: Get Rs. 6000 cashback on purchase of new smartphone

Before Reliance Jio launches its JioPhone Next, Airtel today launched Mera Pehla Smartphone program that will offer Rs. 6000 cashback for users who purchase new smartphones. This will require users to recharge Rs. 249 or above for 36 months, after which they will get full cashback. This is available to customers who purchase a new smartphone priced approximately up to Rs. 12,000 from leading brands. Over 150 smartphones are eligible for this benefit, says the company.

The customer will receive the cashback in two parts – the first instalment of Rs. 2000 after 18 months or 1.5 years and the remaining Rs. 4000 after 36 months or three years. To know more about the program and the list of eligible handsets, users can visit Airtel’s website.

If a customer gets a device priced Rs. 6000, the customer will get full cashback by the end of three years. Airtel also offers one time free screen replacement by Servify worth up to Rs 4800 with the estimated cost of screen replacement for a Rs. 12,000 smartphone. Once a customer is on an eligible recharge pack, the screen replacement enrolment can be done on Airtel Thanks App within 90 days.

The plan also comes with Airtel Thanks benefits  that include a free Wynk Music subscription and a 30-day trial of Amazon Prime Video Mobile Edition. You can check more details and the list of eligible models on
