Airtel Nigeria has announced the introduction of SmartConnect 2.0, a new offer which offers new prepaid customers six times the value of every recharge they make.
The SmartConnect 2.0 is specifically designed to give more value and enrich the lives of telecoms consumers, also empowering them to do much more as well as succeed in their personal and professional endeavours.
The new offering is specially created for new prepaid customers joining the Airtel network. Nigerians, who desire to enjoy the benefits of the newly introduced package, will need to buy a new Airtel SIM card, register it and recharge to enjoy six times the value of every recharge.
For instance, when a new customer recharges N100, he/she gets N600 total airtime value instantly, while a recharge of N1000 gives N6000 instant total airtime value.
For a N100 recharge, customers get N100 in their main account, an additional bonus N250 for calls to all networks and N250 or 50 MB data while the N1000 recharge gives customers N1,000 in the main account N2500 for calls to all networks and N2500 or 500 MB data.
Customers are expected to recharge their lines by dialling *126*pin#. The airtime value in the customer’s main airtime has no validity expiry; while bonuses have seven day validity. Customers can continuously roll over their bonuses if they recharge their lines within the seven day validity of their existing bonus.
Announcing the SmartConnect 2.0, Head, Public Relations Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Femi Adeniran said the product reaffirms Airtel’s commitment to offer a unique telecommunication experience and amazing opportunities to new customers on the network.
