Jio Prime extended for a year for free for existing subscribers. And here is how you can get it.
Open the MyJio app on your phone, while connected to Jio’s 4G mobile data network. This will auto-login you to your Jio account. JioFi users can to do the same, i.e. by connecting to your device’s Jio Wi-Fi.
The app should display your Jio mobile number on the main screen. Towards the top left corner, a new banner has been added which reads “Congratulations, Extend Jio Prime for a year, Free”. and a button which says “Get now”.
Tap on the banner, and the app will now bring up a screen with the message “JioPrime is getting bigger, you are a valued JioPrime member. And we are extending one full year’s subscription absolutely FREE for you”.
Below this text, the app lists your phone number and your name, with a “Proceed” option on the bottom. Tap on the Proceed button, and the app should say: “Request raised successfully. Your request to avail free Jio Prime membership for a year has been registered successfully. We will get back to you shortly.”
There has been no confirmation SMS or email from Jio yet. But since Jio Prime ends at 11:59 PM on March 31st, i.e. tonight, we can expect the service to renew JioPrime from April 1st.
It is unclear whether the renewal will be done free for people who don’t follow this method. So, it is better to be safe and try it, than missing out on the offer.
