Airtel Merges Smartconnect with Family and Friends Package
Airtel merged its Smart Connect package crafted to provide new customers with six times value on every recharge to include a Family and Friends feature. This happened on November 4, 2016 at 1:28.
You have to add up to four Airtel numbers as Family and Friends by dialling *311*2*Airtel Number#, if you really want to benefit from the Family and Friends bonuses on each recharge.
Also, installing BBM, Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp or any other social network enables you to enjoy free social bonus on every recharge you perform.
Airtel SmartConnect was formerly a premium default bonus plan made specifically for new prepaid customers. Once a customer buys a new SIM card, gets it registered and inserts it in a device, he/she begins to enjoy six times bonus plus other amazing bonuses on every recharge of N100 and above.
If you recharge N200, you will get N200 in your main acoount balance and further receive a bonus of N500 for vouce calls to all networks. That’s not all as you will receive another N500 for 100MB data including N200 airtime to call family and friends, and extra bonus of N200 for BBM, Facebook, Whatsapp, and Twitter. This makes it a whooping N1600 airtime recharge on every N200 recharge card you load.
The additional N2000 airtime you will receive is to access your social media accounts. According to Airtel, the SmartConnect package airtime in your main account will remain valid until fully exhausted while all the bonuses given has seven-day validity period.
If for the period of 7 days, you fail to recharge so that your bonus can be rolled over, you will lose all unused bonuses.
Dial *126*PIN# to recharge, and you can check your Airtel account balance with *123#.
