I remember feeling incredibly frustrated, waiting for my neighborhood’s shop to finally give me a recharge card. It was as if he was doing a favor, when he climbed down from his high perch, bent down to retrieve the box where he kept the recharges, and then asked – what recharge do you want? Well, I had to go for one which I knew worked for me, but without a good rate chart, how would I know which would best suit my needs?
Later on, recharging through websites made things simpler – but there were so many packs to choose from, and I had to be near a computer to access the net and then get my recharge done. In short, BOTHERATION started there. And while travelling, especially on roaming, it is a mighty pain to find internet and recharge.
But, after top brands like Airtel brought in its mobile app for quick recharges, life is a good place to be. Why?
- Well, now you can recharge your phone, for any amount, at any point of time. Even if you are roaming, if you have a working internet connection on your phone, recharge is possible quite easily. This is perfect for me, because I often run out of balance while travelling, and I had to call home before to get the recharge done. No more of that, thankfully! And yes, the payments made are completely secure and safe, so no worries!
- Surprises! I love surprises! Do you know the Airtel app has free surprises for those who recharge over the app? You will get a coupon for every recharge you make – whether big or small, who doesn’t like discounts and vouchers? I know I do! This app quickly gives you vouchers which you can redeem easily at your favorite places. There is a wide range of vouchers from different places, to ensure there is something for everyone!
- In case you are like me, you will need to have a page where you can personalize what you want to do at that point. For an inveterate gamer like me, ordering games is a must. Now I can easily store these things on my app’s personalized page, so that if I want to make a quick recharge, or view my balance quickly to check everything is fine, I can do so easily.
