Jio Republic Day offer - How to select the right plan for your usage in 2018?

Reliance Jio plans are confusing. Especially the ones that are released for the 2018 Republic day on January 26th. While most mobile operators give larger value per rupee when you opt for higher plans, it's not the case with Jio.

 

As an example, you get 4GB per day at Rs 799, but you get a lot more of 5GB per day at a cheaper cost of Rs 509, for the same 28 days validity!

 

So here is a small analysis suggesting the best plans.

 

Another great feature with Jio is that Jio allows multiple plans to be active at the same time. That is if you want 3 GB per day, you can either opt for 3GB/day data plan, or you can have a combination of 1GB/day + 2GB/day data plans at the same time.

 

So using this technique, lets see what are the best ways to the required data, that provides cheapest cost per day.

 

On the overall, you want the best value for buck (cheapest Rs per GB per day), go for the Rs 448 recharge (2 GB per day, 84 days).

 

If you want 3 GB per day, go for 2 recharges of Rs 448 (2GB per day) + Rs 448 (2GB per day).

If you want 4 GB per day, go for 2 recharges of Rs 448 (2GB per day) + Rs 448 (2GB per day).

If you want 5 GB per day, go for 3 recharges of Rs 448 (2GB per day) + Rs 448 (2GB per day) + Rs 448 (2GB per day).

 

Below are high-cost low-value recharges that you should avoid at all costs - Rs 799, 999, 1999, 4999, 9999.

 

Impressive right? I am one of those penny wise pound foolish guys. I work a lot in making a decision like this, but will blow off larger chunks of money with instinctive purchases, food and luxury vacations :-(
