If you have been using Airtel and never receive bonus open airtime recharge it could probably be that you are not on the right tariff plan that is in charge of that. Bonus is always exciting! especially when it is as high as 8x in value.
The Airtel tariff plan that categorically gives a bonus on all recharge is the Airtel SMARTCONNET. It gives a credit bonus of up to 8 times the value of your recharge and double data offer for the first 90days. It is the default bonus plan of Airtel for prepaid customers. other sources that give a recharge bonus of up to 10x are bundles not plan, these bundles include; the SmartRecharge, talkmore 5x, 6x bundles, and voice+ bundles.
This tariff plan is equally important for both calls and browsing geeks as it will cut off from their recharge card and data expenses.
How the Airtel SmartConnect Works and Benefit
If you recharge an Airtime of N200, the credit will automatically be multiplied by 8 and equals N1600. This bonus credit will be split for usage into both voice and data.
Your recharge bonus will expire in 7days of recharge however, your main credit will never expire unless exhausted by you.
How to Migrate to Airtel SMARTCONNECT
SMARTCONNET tariff comes as default, there is no migration code for it. you automatically be in it once you purchase and register a new Airtel SIM. unfortunately, you cannot directly migrate into the tariff plan from your current plan if you are an old SIM user.
However, if you are an old Airtel Sim user and wish to migrate to a smart connect tariff plan, simply do any of these;
- Perform a sim swap from any Airtel KYC near you and your new sim will be on Airtel smartconnect
- Contact the Airtel customer support center by sailing 111 from your phone if they can migrate you from their system.

the call rate is pretty high up to 67k per sec approximately but applied on the bonus alone.
