Check out these crazy “Surprise Deals” from MTN

Posted by

After losing millions of subscribers in recent months, the largest mobile network operator in Nigeria, MTN is taking drastic measures to win back the hearts of her customers. Few days ago they greatly improved the data allocation in their mobile data plans. The new development is this “Surprise Deals” reported by a few Nairalanders. See the screenshots below:

MTN Surprise
Load N2000 and get 5GB of data and N2560 worth of airtime to call all networks

The screenshot shows a package that offers users an astonishing 5GB of data plus N2560 worth of airtime to call other Nigerian networks.

  • Simply load N2000 airtime, and
  • SMS D2000 to 131.

Note: Some Nairalanders tried this and received 2GB of data instead. Still a good deal though.

MTN Surprise
Load N5000 and get 5GB of data plus N6500 worth of airtime for calls

This is another good looking offer. You get 5GB of data and N6500 worth of airtime to call other networks.

  • Simply load N5000 airtime, and
  • SMS D5000 to 131.

Personally, I love plans like this that combines data and voice calls. It would be interesting to see the response from other mobile networks. It can only get better for we users.
