MTN Nigeria has a Welcome Back Offer that gives subscribers 4GB data for 1000 naira. Find out if you are eligible and how to subscribe to this data bundle.
Have you ever heard of the Biblical story of the prodigal son? He collected his inheritance and went away to squander it, later came to his senses and decided to return home. His father welcomed him back by throwing a party.
MTN’s Welcome Back Data is like that party for prodigal subscribers. If you have not carried out any activity – voice calls, SMS, and data – on your MTN line for a period of 60 – 180 days, MTN offers you a number of special data bundles, including a 4GB data for 1000 naira plan, as incentives to get you to do so.
MTN Welcome Back Special Data Bundles
So, if you are a prodigal subscriber by the above definition, you are automatically eligible for the Welcome Back Data Offer, and you will be able to buy any one of the four (4) discounted data plans. These data plans include the following:
- 4GB for ₦1000, with 30-day validity
- 2GB for ₦500, with 14-day validity
- 1GB for ₦200, with 7-day validity
- 250MB for ₦100, with 3-day validity
All of these plans work on 2G, 3G, and 4G connections. You will also be able to use them in a feature phone, smartphone, tablet, or even modem and mifi.
MTN 4GB data for 1000 naira
This is the largest bundle in the Welcome Back Data offer. It gives you 4GB data for just N1,000 for a period of 30 days.
Do I qualify for 4GB data for 1000 MTN Welcome Back offer?
As has already been mentioned, this offer targets those who have not carried out any activity (voice calls, text messages, Internet) for 60 to 180 days i.e. 2 months to 6 months. If you are unsure though, there is a way to find out if you qualify for the 4GB data for 1000 naira bundle and other Welcome Back Data packages.
