Nigeria's Glo rewards subscribers with 200% recharge bonus


Nigerian mobile network firm Globacom has introduced a new tariff plan which gives its prepaid subscribers up to 200% instant bonus everytime they recharge.

The company said through its promotion plan called 'Bumpa' customers can enjoy a 200% recharge bonus everytime they recharged with airtime worth N100 and above.

Globacom’s marketing coordinator Adeniyi Olukoya said that Glo Bumpa was conceived to give additional superior value to subscribers and enable them to fulfill their passion of staying connected with friends, family and business associates beyond what their standard recharge credit would have given them.

“In order to bring unprecedented value to our loyal subscribers, we have configured Glo Bumpa in such a way that it allows subscribers to use their bonuses to text or call any network in Nigeria and also to browse the internet," Olukoya said.

"This unique move is unsurpassed in its novelty and gives our subscribers not only great value but the freedom to utilise their bonuses in any way they want,” he added.

Olukoya further explained that Glo Bumpa comes with a flat rate of N4 per SMS to all networks, while international SMS will be charged at N10 per SMS.

“In addition, Glo Bumpa also offers free night calls, a long-term bonus validity of 30 days and no rental fees,” he stated.

Olukoya also said that Glo Bumpa was available to all prepaid subscribers on the Glo network and those on other networks who port to Glo.

According to him, the tariff plan would enable subscribers to continue enjoying 200% instant bonus for as long as he or she is subscribed to Glo Bumpa and kept recharging.

“We are committed to delivering bigger and better value to our subscribers in terms of competitive tariffs and product offerings.

"As we march into the New Year, our subscribers are going to see more propositions that will deliver unlimited value to them and reinforce our vision as Africa’s biggest and best telecommunications network,” Olukoya concluded.
