Getting 7GB for just N350 to browse for the week may sound like another cheat, that’s what I thought too but it doesn’t seem to look like one. If you’re banking with FCMB, you’re eligible for 7GB data for N350 only on MTN and Airtel.
While this offer is not officially announced, it is unclear if FCMB is behind the bonus to support customers in during this lockdown period or just another loophole from MTN and Airtel.
If you ask me, it doesn’t seem to look like a loophole.
However, our point of interest is that, you’ll receive 6GB data bonus when you buy 1GB for N350 on MTN or Airtel.
I don’t have an FCMB account, can I use that of my family or friend?
Absolutely, you can use another persons FCMB account to buy the data and receive the data bonus.
Does it Work on Other Networks? (Glo and 9mobile)
I can’t say for sure, initially it was believed to be just MTN, but then decided to try on Airtel, and it worked. This doesn’t guarantee it’ll work on other networks but if you can take the risk, no problem.
Follow the simple step by step guide below to activate the 7GB data on your MTN and Airtel Sim.
How to Activate 7GB For N350 on MTN and Airtel
- Transfer N350 to your FCMB account or that of your friend. Skip this if you already have funds in your account.
- Using the registered phone number on the FCMB account, dial *329#.
- If you’re buying for other Sims, select buying for others option and enter the Sim you want to buy for.
- Now, select Data from the options.
- Reply with 2 to purchase 1GB data for N350.
- You will receive a message immediately after the purchase that you now have 6GB data bonus plus the 1GB resulting in a total of 7GB.
How to Check Data Balance
To check your data balance, simply fail the USSD *131*4#. You’ll receive a message with all the active data plan on your Sim.
Can i Accumulate The Data?
Yes, you can purchase the data plan as many times as you can. There’s currently no limit to the number of times you can buy the data plan and receive the 6GB bonus.
The initial 1GB data is valid for 24hrs, the bonus data which is 6GB is valid for 1week.
That’s it. Enjoy while it last.
