Jio Summer Surprise FAQ: All Your Questions, Answered!

There has been a lot of buzz around the recently announced Jio Summer Surprise offer, and people are still unclear on what to do next. While the official media release states that one has to do the first recharge of Rs. 303 or higher to avail the 3 months of free services, there's been a lot of confusion as to what would be the future of users who did a recharge of less than Rs. 303, i.e., Rs. 149. Not just this, people are also looking forward to the famous 'Happy Hours' confirmation. So to clear the air, we've tried to answer all your questions regarding the new Jio offer in this quick post. You can know more about the Summer Surprise offer from our previous article.

1. I have already enrolled into Jio Prime and have also done a Recharge of Rs. 303. What do I do now?

  • Literally Nothing. Sit back, relax, make a fresh list of everything you want to download and start downloading. You'll enjoy three months of free services (i.e., benefits of the RC303 plan) till June 2017 and your 303 paid plan shall be active starting July 1st, 2017.

2. I have already enrolled into Jio Prime and have also done a Recharge of more than Rs. 303 (Rs. 499, Rs. 999 and so on). What do I get?

  • Whatever plan you recharged with, you get three months of that very plan for free. Simply put, you pay for one month but enjoy 4 months of the service. For example, if you have recharged with the RC499 plan, you'd be getting 2GB High-Speed Data per day (instead of 1GB High Speed of the RC303) for 4 months (free for 3 months).
Update: Seems like you get the same benefits as of the Happy New Year offer, minus the Happy Hours. Irrespective of what pack you recharge with, if it is more than 303, you get three months of free services (with a daily high-speed data limit of 1 GB, after which speed is throttled to 128 kbps). So even if you recharged with  RC499, you'd get the same benefits for these three months as that of a user who recharged with RC303. After the Summer Surprise Offer ends (that is, after June 2017), your RC499 plan benefits would come into effect and you would then get 2 GB high-speed data per day, as per the plan.

3. I have enrolled into Jio Prime by paying Rs. 99 but haven't done any other Recharges yet. What do I do?

  • If you want to enjoy the Free services for another 3 months, do a recharge of Rs. 303 or higher on or before 15th April. Doing so, you'll be entitled to get the particular plan for 3 additional months for totally free.

4. I have enrolled into Jio Prime but have done a Recharge of Rs. 149. What do I do?

  • Relax. Take a deep breath. Take a long deep breath. You're not left out. Just recharge with Rs. 303 or higher before 15th April and you too get the benefits of the Summer Surprise offer. The RC303 Plan (or whatever plan you choose) will be activated on 1st July, and the RC149 plan (which you recharged earlier) will then follow for the next month, i.e., August 2017.

5. I have enrolled into Jio Prime and have done multiple recharges of Rs. 149 for consecutive months. What do I do?

  • The same as said above. Do a Recharge of Rs. 303 or higher and you get the Summer Surprise Offer as well. All your RC149 plans will be queued and utilized after July 2017. (Source: Jio Customer Care)

6. I have not enrolled into Jio Prime yet. What do I do?

7. What about Happy Hours? Are Happy Hours included in the Summer Surprise Offer?

  • The 3 hours (from 2 AM to 5 AM) where there used to be no data limit and cap were called Happy Hours, as, during this time of the day, the subscriber could use/download as much data as he/she wanted without worrying about the FUP. However, Jio has already stated that there would no more be Happy Hours under the 'Prime Subscription, .'' and since this Summer Surprise Offer is only for Prime Members, there's no 'Happy Hours.'
