A new feature has been rolled out by Idea Cellular dubbed “Validity Accumulation” to enable its prepaid subscribers now shell out for a long-validity pack, but the same made active at a later date. So far, the subscribers of Reliance Jio were offered with a “My Vouchers” feature that enabled them to be priced for an offer at a prior date. The newest feature surfaced days after a recharge pack worth Rs 398 was rolled out by Idea launched with features such as 100 SMS every day and 1 GB data together with free roaming calls and validity of 70 days.
Now the Idea subscribers, with the Validity Accumulation feature, can get a long-validity plan that can be made active at an afterward date, as reported by TelecomTalk. For example, customers recharging with the pack worth Rs 398 two times will obtain its gains for 140 Days—additional 70 Days apart from the actual 70-day validity. If the customers selected the identical plan for three times, the gains will be applicable for 210 Days. Customers should make a note that they will get the benefits from the plan even though the operator has upgraded its charges with new plans.
However, it has not been disclosed by the company about for how many times a user can utilize the new feature to go for the benefits on an extended time period. Similarly, it is not apparent whether the new feature will be obtainable for all prevailing Idea packs or merely for few of them. Also, no specific discounts are been offered by the Telco when going for several recharges at once.
Having mentioned that, the most recent step by Idea seems to be quite of use for users seeking to hold on to a specific plan for an extended duration. Often new packs are added by the operators and thrust aside their prevailing ones.
