Posted on: October 26, 2022, 04:55:53 AM
I will share all the Airtel recharge codes here, and if you want to learn how to recharge your phone from your bank or ATM and use USSD codes, then you are at the right place.

Airtel mobile network is one of the best and most popular networks in Nigeria, when you think about fast and affordable data and airtime, then remember Airtel, they help their subscribers to connect with their family and friends seamlessly.

To make your Airtel line function, you must at least recharge your phone once in a while, and that is why you must be familiar with Airtel recharge codes which will enable you to recharge your phone whenever and however you want.

This page will not only show you how the Airtel recharge code but will also help you with tips on how to recharge your Airtel line from your bank and other methods.

How to recharge Airtel card

As I said earlier, recharging your phone is not just buying Airtel from sellers and inputting the codes on your phone there are other fast ways to recharge your phone without any stress.

However, to load your Airtel recharge card, you need to dial the Airtel recharge code, which is *126*PIN# click on the send button to send, and you will see a notification that shows that your phone has been recharged.

For instance, if your Airtel recharge card has the following recharge numbers 6638 8988 7749 5828, to recharge the card, dial *126*663889887749# and then send to recharge your phone.

Airtel recharge code*126* recharge card PIN#
How many digits are Airtel recharge16 digit numbers
Code to check Airtel airtime balance*123#
Customer care number of Airtel111

The info I provided above has shown that the Airtel recharge code is *126*. But remember that Airtel recharge cards contain 16-digit numbers, always remember to recharge your phone in this format *126*your recharge card pin#.

Airtel Bonus recharge code

Recharging your phone and getting the exact amount written on the card is not enough. But don't worry, there is a way to get a bonus from Airtel Nigeria if you follow my instructions correctly.

First, you must use a special Airtel recharge code to get a reasonable bonus to give you more airtime than a normal recharge code.

Airtel Bonus code is 500

If you need to get a 5X bonus from your recharge, you must use the *500*PIN# to recharge your phone. Using the Airtel Bonus will help you to get more Airtel that can be used to call family and friends. To help you understand what I meant by getting 5X of your airtime recharge when you recharge your phone with a 500 worth of Airtel recharge card, you will get 2,500 in return.

Amazing right? That is not the only method to get a bonus from Airtel, but you can also try *555*PIN#, and you will get more airtime than you paid for. However, you can still get an extra airtime bonus with *241# to use the 141 code, follow the instructions below.

  • Pickup your phone and dial *241#, the special bonus code.
  • A pop-up message will appear on your screen with 20X airtime bonus options.
  • Choose from the list and send it to receive your bonus.

Note: Airtel Bonus gives you more airtime for less, but most of these free airtime gotten while using a special Airtel Bonus recharge code might not allow you to use it for data subscription and some might have a tight validity period. To check your Airtel Bonus balance.

Airtel bank recharge code

Let's not forget that most recharge card sellers normally add extra, #20 or more, when buying recharge. However, if you wish to solve that problem, you must learn how to recharge your phone from your bank. As long as you have the money you bank, you can use it to conveniently recharge your phone.

But since we use different banks, the Airtel bank recharge code will be different from one bank to another. But you don't have to worry, I have listed Airtel bank recharge codes for different banks in Nigeria.

Airtel data code

We have discussed more Airtel airtime bonus codes and airtime recharge, but it's time to discuss the data codes. We already knew that to buy data from any network, not just Airtel, you need to recharge your phone and then proceed to a data subscription. So let's assume that you already have enough airtime for the data subscription, all you need is to dial the Airtel data code, which is *141#

Dialling the Airtel data code, which is *141#, will show you data subscription options like:

  • My Offer
  • My Area
  • Data Bundle
  • Other recommended data plans

Airtel is my offer, and my area is the best option for those looking for special data offers, especially for those new to the Airtel network. However, if you wish to go further, you must select the data Bundle option to see Airtel's Daily, Weekly, and monthly data plans.

Alternatively, you can still subscribe to the Airtel data plan directly using the recharge card Pin just as you recharge your phone. To try this method, the code you need is *143*Recharge card Pin#

For instance, if you buy an Airtel recharge card with 1000 with the pin 3663 4488 6467 3478 and wish to buy maybe 3GB for 1000, what you will do is dial *143*3663448864673478#
