What kind of recharge app is best for you?

Are you using the right kind of online recharge app? If you’re not sure, this article is for you.

Recharges for phones and bill payments for a variety of purposes – these are tasks that you do every month. There is no getting away from them. So why not make the going easier, and the task more financially rewarding? At least, that’s what online recharge app makers figure.

But if you’re using an online recharge app, are you certain that it is the best in its class? Here’s how you can find out – look for these attributes –

* No hidden agenda – just recharging.

Most recharge apps in the market promise you the moon for recharging your DTH or prepaid connection – but there’s always a catch. You must click on an ad, or answer a question, or fill out a small survey before the promised cashback or discount is given to you. And after doing all of this, there is no guarantee that the payment gateway is a secure channel or not. It is wiser not to fall for these gimmicks – the best online recharge apps don’t expect anything out of you, other than using their platform to do the recharge within minutes.

* Multiple uses in one app.

However, even the best online recharge apps in the country today are falling short on one front – they are only offering a payment interface and little else. This means that you often need several different kinds of apps for different uses – one to pay your utility bills, another to do recharge, yet another to stream movies and TV shows, and still another to do money transfers. But if you download and use the myAirtel app, you get multiple functionalities in one app: it is an online recharge app, bill payment and money transfer facility, it has the excellent Airtel Payments Bank on it, and you also get access to Airtel TV and Wynk Music, among others.

* Regular Cashback offers and discounts.

On the subject of the myAirtel app, it is pertinent to note that it offers regular cashback and discounts every time you wish to recharge your connection or pay your postpaid bills. There are not many online recharge apps that offer cashback so frequently – so you should grab this opportunity at the earliest! Discounts and cashback result in additional savings for you.

* Chance to modify or change the current pack before recharge.

Also, there are not many online recharge apps that offer you the opportunity to modify your existing DTH or prepaid phone pack at the time of effecting the recharge. You can choose another pack, or add more channels to your DTH or prepaid phone pack. Also, Airtel subscribers are offered quick recharge options on the app (these are for pre-set amounts) to effect a faster recharge. This saves time for you.

* Add-on benefits on the app.

Apart from the benefits mentioned above, the myAirtel app helps you manage your finances and bills in a streamlined manner. If you have subscribed to the Airtel myFamily Plan, then the app helps you track the usage easily with just a flick of your finger. You can see all the various accounts on the screen, and also manage them effectively with the app. Meanwhile, you can use the Airtel Payments Bank (now tacked to the myAirtel app) to make and receive payments. It can also be used as a savings account with the Airtel phone number as the account number.
