Earlier last week, telecom operator Vodafone announced its partnership with Amazon to offer 1-year of free Amazon Prime membership worth ₹999 to its RED postpaid customers. And now, Vodafone is showing some love to its prepaid customers as well, as it is offering 50% discount on Amazon Prime membership, bringing the cost down to ₹499.
Vodafone has announced its ‘Youth Offer on Amazon Prime’ as a part of which it’s offering its prepaid customers a discount of 50% on Amazon Prime membership. However, as evident from its name, this offer is only available to Vodafone’s young customers, in particular, the ones who are aged between 18 and 24.
Amazon Prime membership in India costs ₹999 for one year, but, with this offer, Vodafone prepaid customers between the age of 18 and 24 can get it for ₹499. With Amazon Prime, customers get access to unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows on Prime Video, unlimited music on Amazon Music, and, early access to deals and discounts on Amazon.in as well as fast shipping.
How to get Amazon Prime membership at a discounted price of ₹499?

Based on our personal experience, we can strongly say that Amazon Prime membership isn’t worth spending ₹999 a year, but for ₹499, you can give it a try.
Commenting on this partnership with Amazon, Avneesh Khosla, Associate Director, Consumer Business, Vodafone India, said, “In today’s hyper-connected and digital world, youngsters are looking forward to new experiences.
