I am thinking to recharge with 1299 plan for my Jio number, and Top-Up when offers are available; activate the Additional data vouchers received for the top-ups as I get them. as my daily usage is below 500MB.

PS- I am currently using 98 plan (only for the first time I recharged directly with plan, and later with talktime accumulated from cashback offers recharges)
I’m thinking of the 12 month (336 days) plan because I see the data vouchers (from a section – 1GB, 2GB, 5GB etc.) are expiring (because offers were very frequent for sometime and my usage is not much. If the base/active plan would be of 12 month the vouchers will have longer validity (as I will activate as I get them) and the accumulated talktime can be used for later plan recharges.
Only Jio have a better network and Data speeds around my area…


What are your suggestions?

Seems to be a good idea as ur data usage is less.go ahead and if you don’t have main bal,accumulate first and then do this,which fulfills your both ideas. kg btw

If I activate from accumulated balance I will already have Additional vouchers for the 12 months » about 179GB.. which will be more than sufficient for 12 months.
Recharges after plan activation, from offers will make it more..

I should invest full 1299 initially, and use offers to get additional data.. that is why this post.. is it wise to invest 1299 in one go..

You would typically need 12-15gb per month.
If u recharge with 100+20+10 u can activate 98 plan and get 15gb.
Right now u can get 20, 10 freely using freecharge. Amazon will keep giving something like 30 cb. On average that makes monthly 70 cost. (or even less using two 50 recharges).
The best is to commit for 3 months with 329 plan. Accumulate vouchers over 3 months and then activate as they have 90 days validity. I am doing this.

₹1299 will give you 24gb + 130gb vouchers = 154gb for 11 months seems very less.
If you can manage with it then good for you.

U missed things sir, after plan recharge I will recharge with topups (which will give additional data vouchers, from offers) to use after 24gb of plan entitlement.

Yes I agree. But this plan works only if Jio continuously gives extra data vouchers in future with topups, if they stop then your plan might take a hit.

One thing is for sure that prices are not going to be lowered so don’t bother thinking much since data booster plans are already at out disposal. I recharged this 1299 plan for my mom last night bcz of that same reason – Data vouchers vanishing in 90 days smile

But there will be Data-Boosters which can be activated using balance accumulated from/directly from offers.

@161508

Did you get any non-Jio minutes with 98 plan ?
I’m thinking of recharging with 98 plan as I have lots of data vouchers accumulated. Also most of my contacts have Jio so almost 90% of my non-Jio minutes remains unused.

Non Jio calls can be done at 6p/min.

I have the calculations.

If you don’t use more than 500 MB average data daily then this is the best plan.

1299÷336= ₹3.86 daily

If you want to have enough talk time to recharge 1299 then you to top-up worth about 1600.

You get about ₹82 per 100 top-up.

So 16 × 82= 1312

So Data voucher worth 160 GB + 24 GB = 184 GB total for 336 days.

Or 0.55 GB per day average.

Try to maximize savings by using all the RECHARGE offers available on Amazon, Mobiqik, FreeCharge, Flipkart etc.

Most of the times you won’t get offers for 100 topups 16 times. So better go with 329 plan.

For this you need to do 100×4 topup.

Calculations would be exactly same as above (÷4).

True. only increases 5 Paisa per day.

So 329 is  the " best" plan.

Yeah. We will be short of 2₹.

Single 10₹ shot would cover 329 pack thrice.
Freeccharge would give this for free smile

I am using 98 plan as I don’t have much OffNet calling…
Thus, for 329 plan – I would be paying ≈₹35 extra for not much use.

That is why I am thinking of 1299 (directly) and then, recharge with topups for additional data use (also accumulate talktime for plan activation later).

98 × 12 = 1176 but with 1299 I will be paying 123(≈10 monthly) extra.. that can be considered as minimum of 10 recharge is available.

Everything is same for per day calculation. For you calculation, it’s 1600÷336= 4.76 per day. And for @Sins1995 it’s 400÷84= 4.76 which is same for both plans.

No bro. With 400 topup we would get 327₹ balance.
So, 2₹ short for 3 months.

Firstly you if you recharge 400 you get:

81.75 X 4 = 327 only not 329

I calculated actual talktime spent on 1299/329 recharge divided by total validity period.

1299÷ 336 = ₹3.866 per day
329  ÷ 84 = ₹3.916 per day

3.916 – 3.866 = ₹0.05

or 5 Paisa extra per day.

Which is negligible

But no recharges are available with full talktime. So we should calculate with total amount spent on that talktime. That’s what i was saying. Even by total amount spent also comes out to be same.
