Airtel has finally revealed what its Suprise offers are, by offering 30GB of free data. The Airtel Surprise offer is valid for a period of three months from March 13. The monthly limit for the offer is 10GB per month. The offer is valid only for postpaid users, and the subscribers will get 10GB of free data each month, which will total up to 30GB. The deadline for users to avail this offer is March 31.

In order to get this offer, postpaid subscribers will have to go to the MyAirtel application on their smartphones. If you do not have the app, download it from the Google Play store or Apple app store. When you open the app you will see an automatic prompt which asks you to open the ‘surprise. Clicking on that will give you 30GB of data for three months, with a monthly cap of 10GB. Once you select it, you will get a message regarding the additional data offer.

This offer by Airtel is similar to what Vodafone offered in 2016. But Vodafone’s offer was 10GB data at the price of 1GB. But Airtel Surprise offer is free of cost. Airtel earlier had the Infinity plan under which there was an option of 3GB data at a price of Rs 345. The pack offered free calls to any network in the country and 4GB data (1GB regular pack benefit and 3GB free data). For postpaid users, there was an offer to get free 3 GB data per month with all MyPlan Infinity Plans. The Rs 549 Infinity plan will be offering unlimited calling and also 6GB data per month including the 3GB free data plan. The regular plan includes free voice calling (Local + STD), free SMS and subscriptions to Wynk Music and Wynk Movies. Customers need to access the MyAirtel App to avail the offer.

          So we get data only for 3 months. How ridiculous. Being postpaid customer they should have given this offer for 1 year. I am quoting Airtel for jio.Airtel total waste expect for speed

            I tried 'claiming' this offer, after clicking I waited only to see the page 'expire'- twice. Such is the 4G service in India.And the public & telcos are in a mad rush

                      It's not a 100% correct ad by Airtel. I am using Airtel postpaid under corporate scheme and offer is not available.

                                    Not very true. Airtel is offering same old plans. They have this offer of 1.5gb data for hundred rupees. They are offering same to most of the customers. My monthly rental is around 650rs per month. I get 820mb 4g data. That's shame in these days world. I thought aurte will mend it's ways Afetr recent developments and offer good plans to existing customers. but no. I guess it's time to look for other operator's.
