Amazon Prime Video was introduced in India last year in December under the special introductory price of Rs.999 which was immediately slashed to Rs.499 and has stayed the same since.
But in a bid to lure even more customers to its Prime service, which not only gives them express 1 or 2-day delivery and early access to deals but also gives them unlimited access to Prime Video for a year, Amazon has come up with a limited time offer for new Prime subscribers.
Under this offer, users can avail a cashback of upto Rs.300 when they recharge their Amazon Pay account with Rs.500 or more.
The offer is valid for those who purchase the Prime membership and add the Amazon Pay balance by 28th June.
But It Will Cost Your Rs.499, Not 200
Once you’ve enrolled in the Prime membership, you have the option of availing a cashback of 20% on recharging your Amazon Pay wallet with Rs.500 or more.
Now, the maximum cashback that can be availed under this offer is Rs.300. Since 20% cashback is on offer, by my calculations, users who recharge the Amazon Wallet with Rs.1500, will receive a cashback of Rs.300.
Those recharging the Amazon Wallet with Rs.500 will only receive a cashback of Rs.100.
The offer isn’t applicable for existing Prime members or those whose trial ends after 28th June.
Amazon has been going head to head with its global competitor Netflix and indigenous ones such as Hotstar to gain more followers for its Prime video app and given its low price, has been fairly successful in the India market.
Even if you aren’t interested in the cashback offer, Amazon Prime video subscription is not only cheap at a little over 40 bucks a month, it will expose you to numerous amazing avenues for entertainment too — bang for the buck.
