Airtel Online Stores To Sell SmartPhones With EMI Options For Prepaid Users

by September 25, 2018

Bharti Airtel wants to take its online sales through a smartphone a notch higher. The company offers a range of smartphones and devices that will come with attractive EMI options and bundled recharge plans. While the schemes were only available for Airtel’s postpaid users, the company has now announced that it will extend the same benefits to prepaid users.

To begin with, three smartphones are available for Airtel’s postpaid subscribers. These smartphones include the Nokia 7 Plus (review), Nokia 6.1 Plus (review) and OPPO F9 Pro (review).

According to reports from the Airtel store, when users choose the smartphones mentioned above, they are given a choice to select between a postpaid connection or a prepaid one. If the user opts for “Prepaid”, they receive Airtel’s bundled recharge offer of 1.4GB daily data for the next full year. Under the scheme, the users enjoy unlimited calling with no FUP to any network. The plan also enables the users to send 100 SMSes every day. The plan is very similar to Airtel’s Rs 199 offering wherein the same benefits are enjoyed by the users for 28-days.

The smartphones mentioned above can be purchased from Airtel’s online stores by paying a small down payment. The remaining payment can be made in Easy Monthly instalments (EMI) for a period of up to 12 months. The EMIs will also factor in the cost of Airtel’s bundled plan. While the total cost with EMIs over a period of twelve months might be higher than Flipkart or Amazon, it still enables users to make that dream purchase without having to pay the entire cost of the smartphone all at once.
