Amazon India on Friday announced the launch of a 21-day long ‘Go Cashless Mela’ to encourage customers to adopt online payments by giving away offers on Amazon Pay. The customers will avail offers and discounts on payments of mobile, DTH recharge, gas, water, and electricity bills on the platform, as well as on partner websites on making payments using Amazon Pay. The offer is now live on Amazon.in and will conclude after 21 days.
As per the offer, the customers will get various discounts and cashbacks, along with a game called ‘Mystery Wallets’ that the company says will ‘entertain’ them while they shop and pay. Here are the offers that are available on Amazon.in on the payments made via Amazon Pay:
Customers who load Rs 1,000 Amazon Pay balance will receive a standard cashback of Rs 100. On the use of BHIM UPI, the customers will receive 10 per cent cashback of up to Rs 100, for one transaction per user, the company said in a release. Further, the customers who make their first electronic payment with Visa cards will be entitled to get an additional 10 per cent cashback. And lastly, the customers who shop five or more times during the 21 days stand to win Rs 1 lakh in Amazon Pay gift certificates, the company added.
