Reliance Jio gives Jio Prime customers 100 percent cashback when charging Rs. 399 under a new Diwali holiday promotion offer. Called Jio Diwali Dhan Dhana Dhan offer, it only applies to the Rs. 399 prepaid and postpaid plans and entitles customers to vouchers worth Rs. 400. The offer is available now. It will run until October 18, one day before Diwali. The Rs. 399 Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan package for prepaid users offers 84 GB of data at 1 GB per day, free text messages, free calls, a subscription to Jio apps, and a validity of 84 days.

The new Jio Diwali Dhan Dhana Dhan offer offers Jio Prime customers eight vouchers of Rs. 50 each. You can redeem these vouchers for future top-ups of Rs. 309 or above for full cellular plans or data add-ons of Rs. 91 and above.

Here’s the catch: these vouchers can only be redeemed after November 15, and you can only use them one at a time. You cannot combine eight coupons to get one free top-up. Think of it as a series of staggered discounts rather than a 100 percent cashback on Rs. 399 charging. The offering can be used through the MyJio app, the website, the Jio Store outlets, Reliance Digital’s large format stores, and the company’s offline and online platforms (JioMoney, Paytm, Amazon Pay, and MobiKwik).

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
