Here is one I found for price conscious customers. This trick will work for MTNL 3G users in Delhi circle. MTNL had recently launched a daily 3G data pack of Rs.20 which gives 250 MB of free data valid for 1 day. But actually I have found that this coupon is valid for 2 days and not 1 day. If you recharge in morning on any day it will be valid till midnight of next day. So one gets 250 MB of data valid for 2 days for Rs.20 only. This way in a month one gets 3.75 GB of data for Rs.300 a month only. Whereas other coupons give maximum upto 1.25 GB of data for this price in a month. So with this trick one enjoys 2.5 GB of more data a month for the price of Rs.300 . Getting 2.5 GB of additional data is way too much for price conscious customers.
But there is 1 downside to this that is the necessity to recharge after every two days. So that’s a bit cumbersome. But with online recharge through Paytm it can be done easily.
