Jio Happy New Year Offer ended on 31st March and with that came the announcement of another offer from Jio as ‘Jio Summer Surprise Offer’! The ‘Jio Summer Surprise Offer’ offers free data and other benefits till the end of June 2017, followed by the pack benefits that you recharged for in the next month, i.e. July.
This announcement of Jio Summer Surprise Offer offering free benefits to those who recharged for Rs. 303 under Jio Prime came as a shock to those who recharged for the entry-level Rs. 149 pack. I was one of those who chose to go with Rs. 149 Jio Prime plan (2 GB plus 1 GB for 28 days), as I wanted to test the network quality first.
When I contacted Jio Customer Care, I got to know that I too can get the benefits of ‘Jio Summer Surprise Offer’ if I did any recharge above Rs. 303 on or before 15th April 2017.

For e.g.: Users recharging with Rs. 303 pack after Rs. 149 will get 1 GB/day till June end, 2 GB (and 1 GB extra for 28 days) in July, and Rs. 303 plan benefits in August.

For e.g.: Jio users recharging with Rs. 499 after Rs. 303 recharge, will get the free benefits under the higher plan first, i.e. Rs. 499 plan in this case.

If you are a Jio postpaid users and want to enjoy the benefits of Jio Summer Surprise Offer, then you first need to enroll under Jio Prime by paying Rs. 99. Post that you should subscribe to any postpaid plan of Rs. 303 and above.
You will get the same benefits as the above-mentioned prepaid plans and will get the first bill in July. In case you wish to discontinue before July, you will still need to pay the bill.
The Case With MNP
In case you are migrating to Jio and want to get the benefits of ‘Jio Summer Surprise Offer’ then your number should be ported into Jio network before 15th April along with plan payment of at least Rs. 303.
We do not know whether Reliance Jio would allow the users to upgrade/downgrade their upcoming tariff plans, or change the sequence of plan activations, but it would be better if they do. It would help many like me who opted for Rs. 149 only to test the network quality of Jio and would happily upgrade if the network quality meets their expectations.
