Double data bonus is becoming one of the best way for a network provider to keep its customers. Many of us enjoyed the MTN double data offer which was valid for 6 months but we became unsatisfied when MTN discontinued the offer. A tweak was shared a while ago, on how to get the MTN double data offer using the IMEI of the latest smartphones which most of us might still be enjoying, but still seem unsatisfied.
Airtel seems to have taken everyone by surprise as the big telecommunication company seems to have introduced a data bonus that gives you 150% data bonus when you purchase Airtel’s android data plans. This data plan gives you 500MB when you purchase a N200 plan which is originally a 200MB data. So, when you purchase a N500 plan, instead of getting the normal 750MB, you get 1.8GB , it’s that simple.
One major problem with double data offers is SIM eligibility. It is quite unfortunate that not all Airtel users will be able to enjoy this double data offer. The offer is meant for only those Airtel users who got a text message from Airtel, that reads,
‘Free 150% Data Bonus, Just For You!Get 1.8GB for just N500 valid for 14 days.Hurry, dial *418*2# now to enjoy this amazing offer every day for 6 months’
This data offer is more like MTN double data offer when it comes to validity period. The eligible subscribers can only enjoy it for 6 months, meaning that when the eligible subscribers subscribe for any plan like the N500 plan, you get a whooping 1.8GB data to surf and download from the internet for the next two weeks or less depending on your data usage. If your subscription expires, do not panic as you will keep on enjoying the 150% double data bonus for the next 6 months.
How to subscribe for the 150% data bonus
Kindly pick up you Airtel SIM and recharge any amount of airtime, maybe N500, dial *418*2# to get 1.8GB data valid for 14 days.
If you are not an eligible subscriber, you can go for the Airtel’s 100% data bonus offer. Simply dial *144# on your Airtel SIM to know if you qualify for the Airtel double data offer. If you are eligible, you will see a message saying,’Enjoy Double Data Offer for 6 months‘.
