Airtel Kenya has announced that its customers will receive a 25% airtimes bonus once they buy the airtime through Airtel Money, the company’s mobile money platform.

All pre-paid Airtel Kenya customers have the chance to enjoy the bonus airtime for their purchases via airtel money either through the USSD code *222# or by using the My Airtel app. Customers can also buy airtime for other recipients via airtel money and they will receive 5% bonus airtime.

To check for their bonus airtime, customers buying airtime for themselves will dial *131*1# and when purchasing for other numbers, they will check for the same via *131#. The 25% extra airtime for self-top up will be valid for 24hours and can be used to make calls and send texts. There is no limit to the number of times customers can get the extra airtime as long as the purchases are made within the 24hours.

In a statement, Airtel Kenya, Managing Director, Prasanta Das Sarma said, “We know the festive season is a time that many of us communicate frequently with our family and friends and so, we are happy to offer our customers bonus airtime every time they buy the same using Airtel Money. Now more customers can take advantage of this offer as we are expanding our network coverage across the country.”

Airtel Kenya continues to grow its Airtel money business, through exclusive distribution channels, acquisition of new agents; simplified onboarding experiences and offering great benefits for both to its agents and customers. These efforts are aimed at ensuring that Kenyans across the country have access to airtel money services and are able to make seamless transactions via their mobile phones.
