How to enjoy 25% extra data bonus for 6 months on MTN

by Johnson Daniel

Everyone is seeking for means that can be taken to receive more data for a lesser price, in as much as we have some cheap data plans on all telecom networks, the data received by each individual isn’t just enough. Experts have said that “the human want is insatiable,” day by day, I couldn’t agree any less.

Despite having data bundles like 200MB for N50 on MTN, 1GB for N200 on 9mobile, 7GB for N1500 on Glo & 6GB for N1500 on Airtel, we still want a cheaper bundle.

One good way we can get a cheaper data bundle is by locating a particular offer made available to the customers by the telecom operators. Telecom operators like Glo & Airtel have offers that rewards their customers with more data at the same price which literally spells out that the data is cheaper, I don’t know if you catch my drift.

What I’m referring to is Glo’s 125% extra data offer and that of Airtel is the double data offer, if you are lucky enough, you will get a triple data offer. All of these comes when you follow certain procedures and purchase data on the respective telecom networks.

Here now, MTN users have their own data bonus offer, to spell it out for you, using this data bonus offer, you will get 25% data bonus for each data bundle you will purchase for the next 6 months after activation. This simply means that if you purchase a 100MB plan, you will get 125MB the same thing with a 1.5GB plan, you will receive 1875MB, that’s what the 25% is meant to do, add a specific amount of data to the purchased data.

How to enjoy 25% data bonus on MTN

What you should do is to purchase a 4G or 4G+ MTN SIM or upgrade your existing MTN SIM card to a 4G MTN SIM, if it’s a 4G SIM already, skip that process and continue reading. Look for a 4G enabled-device, insert the 4G/4G+ SIM card and send “LTE” to 131. You should receive a message from 131 that reads;


Congratulations! You have activated the MTN 4G Bonus offer. You will now enjoy 25% free data on every data plan you purchase for the next 6 months. Dial *131*1# to buy data. Thank you

When you do, subscribe to a data plan and you will get a 25% bonus for that plan. To know if your SIM card is 4G capable, send “4G” to 131, you will receive an SMS telling you if your SIM or device is 4G ready. To check your data balance, send 2 to 131 via SMS or dial ∗131∗4# on your phone.scrnli 3 10 2020 7 46 52 PM

Benefits of using an MTN 4G SIM card

Apart from the much better data experience, you will also enjoy the 4G upgrade offer. The offer will be available to all customers who newly upgraded their SIMs to 4G/LTE and newly activated or already using 4G/LTE SIMs.

  • Free 4GB upon upgrade to 4G SIM valid for 7 days
  • 100% bonus on every N500 to N5000 data bundles purchased from month 1 to month 3 after upgrading SIM to 4G

If you do not have an active device offer and you newly upgraded your SIM to 4G, you will get the free 4GB bonus and be able to enjoy both 100% and 25% bonus data.

However, if you have an active device offer upon upgrading your SIM, you will only get the free 4GB bonus and will not be able to enjoy the 100% and 25% bonus data.

In other words, if you are having an active device offer and you newly activated a 4G SIM or you are already using a 4G SIM, you will not be able to enjoy the 25% bonus vice versa if you do not have an active device offer. The 100% bonus for newly upgraded customers will be available only on N500 to N5000 data bundles purchased.
