Thought android 4G smartphones will always be costlier? Then you’re mistaken, one of India’s leading telecom operator Vodafone India has partnered with India’s top e-commerce marketplace Flipkart to bring entry-level 4G smartphones starting as low as Rs 999.
Launched under ‘My First 4G Smartphone‘ campaign, Vodafone India will offer cash back and Flipkart will offer an instant discount on selected entry-level 4G smartphones. You can choose from a wide range of 4G smartphones from some of the top Indian mobile brands. This includes Micromax, iVOOMi, YU, Xolo, Intex, Swipe and Alcatel.
Vodafone India will be offering a total cash back of Rs 2000 on any eligible 4G smartphone purchase from Flipkart. To avail the cash back, you first need to purchase the device at its actual price. Then you need to a recharge of at least Rs 150 per month for 36 months to get the full cash back.
Let’s break this up, once you have the device with Vodafone mobile connection, you need to recharge with at least Rs 150 per month for the next 36 months. Note that the recharges can be of any denomination totalling to a minimum of Rs 150 per month or Rs 2,700 for every 18 months.
At the end of the first 18 months, you will get a cash back amount of Rs 900 from the telco. After another 18 months, the final cash back amount of Rs 1,100 will be offered by the telco. Thus a total cash back amount of Rs 2000 on your 4G smartphone from Vodafone. This cash back amount will be credited to your Vodafone M-Pesa wallet. Also, you don’t have to return the mobile to the telco or mobile vendor to avail the cash back, as in the case of Reliance Jio’s JioPhone.
