Vodafone announces cashback up to Rs 2200 on Micromax smartphones

Vodafone and Indian smartphone maker Micromax today entered into a partnership to offer cashback of up to Rs. 2200 to their customers. As part of the offer, Vodafone customers can get up to Rs. 2200 cashback on selected Micromax smartphones.

The Indian telecom sector has seen some major discounts in both tariffs as well as cashbacks/data bundles over the last one year. Led by Reliance Jio, these cashback offers are available on high-end phones like the iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus and Pixel 2/2 XL to entry-level phones like the JioPhone and Bharat 1.
