In India majority of the population uses a mobile phone. So the question is how do you recharge your mobile phone when the balance runs out? Do you buy the recharge vouchers from the shops or pay online from the network`s portals? These are really boring methods. Someone has spiced up and innovated an online method. Yes, it is none other than FreeCharge. They have made the process of recharging easier.

The coupons and vouchers are very lucrative. So you get the coupons which are valued just equal to or more than the recharge you do. So this is phenomenal.
I am using this service since last 3 years from my college days. The coupons are of various popular brands including McDonalds, KFC, brands from travel, e-commerce and many other companies. So you get discount vouchers and deals which are just useful for cost saving for the user. So have you used this service? If not then do recharge from FreeCharge.
The best thing is that you can recharge not only your mobile phone but also your DTH provider. Earlier it was only for prepaid mobiles, but now they are offering service for the Postpaid mobile phones too. There is a service where in you pay through your debit/credit card or through online banking. But it also has a FreeCharge Credits service. Where in you can deposit money as FreeCharge credits and use those credits to recharge your mobile without using bank details or payment information again and again.
This saves a lot of time.

Select the network operator. Then you can enter the amount of recharge. If you are not sure of the amount then you can check the Tariff Plans. The Tariff Plans for Vodafone were in very detail. I was able to choose from the Full Talk time offers to the 2G, 3G data plans. So you can choose the plan as per your convenience. I selected a 2G data plan of Rs.125. Then tap on “Recharge Mobile”. You will be taken to the screen where you can choose various coupons. This is the most exciting part of this small process. You can select the coupons which are equal to the recharge value.
There are various coupons of many brands for both online and offline retail. The coupons are classified into some categories. These include Food, Store, Care, Clothing, Travel, etc. The coupons are very lucrative. They include coupons of brands like McDonalds, PVR Cinemas, KFC, Barista, InfiBeam, Café Coffee Day and many more. Some of the coupons are paid and many of them are free. But the paid coupons are available for very very nominal cost. These coupons help you to get good discounts and save your hard earned money.

Where in you can put in money in your freecharge account and then use it to do the payments without again and again paying using online bank accounts or putting in debit/credit card numbers.
I did paid from the freecharge credits. But if you don`t have any credits then tap on “Continue”. You will be asked to pay using online banking, debit card or a credit card. So many options to do the recharge which is very awesome. I used the freecharge credits and believe me that the recharge was done in a lightening speed.
Stopwatch was used and exactly 32 seconds were taken to do a successful recharge from opening the app to do the payment using the freecharge credits. That too was done on a 2G network with ease. Is`nt it cool to recharge a 2G data plan using a 2G network.
