Globacom Announces New Jumbo Sim Card With 200k Airtime Preloaded

It’s good times for GLO subscribers and soon-to-be GLO subscribers. GLO has announced a new tariff plan for its vast users that comes with a whopping 200,000 worth of airtime preloaded. All new Glo SIMs now also come preloaded with N200,000 credit for Voice and Data usage.

GLO announced the new Jumbo SIM plan and a plethora of other great offerings at a media launch that held at Mike Adenuga Towers (MAT), Victoria Island, Lagos, on Monday. GLO brand ambassadors, representatives of the Nigerian Communications Commission and the Nigerian Lottery Regulation Commission (NLRC) were present at the event.

GLO seems to be breaking new ground in customer appreciation as this would mark the first time any GSM operator in the country will pre-load SIM cards with a huge sum of airtime value, which can be used for calls, SMS and data.

Existing GLO subscribers can lean in on the bonanza too. Just dial *224#, and you’ll be migrated to the Jumbo plan and qualify to enjoy N200,000 bonus airtime. New subscribers will receive N200,000 airtime value upon successful registration and activation of a GLO line. The Jumbo Sim card costs N100.

To unlock the 200k bonus, customers must recharge their phone with airtime as low as N100. Each recharge unlocks a certain percentage of the 200k bonus until it is exhausted completely. The table below explains the percentages.

Recharge Amount (=N=) Main account (=N=) Bonus Account (=N=) Additional Data Benefit(MB) Data Worth (=N=) Total Value (=N=)
100 100 500 50 1,600 2,200
200 200 1,000 100 3,200 4,400
500 500 2,500 250 8,000 11,000
1,000 1,000 5,000 500 16,000 22,000
5,000 5,000 25,000 2,500 80,000 110,000


For example, if a customer on Jumbo recharges N100, his/her FREE N200,000 is depleted by N2,200 which is made available for his/her usage as detailed in the table above. N100 goes to the Main account, and N500 goes to Bonus account and he/she receives 50MB data bonus (valued at N1,600). Main account is for any type of usage (data, SMS, local and international calls) while voice Bonus account is for only Glo to Glo calls at 80k/s.

The Jumbo bonus lasts for 6 months. After 6 months of activating the Jumbo plan, the bonus will expire. The unlocked bonus has 30 days validity, i.e. the customer has 30 days to use the unlocked data and voice bonus. Customers can check locked Jumbo bonus balance by dialing #122*24# and dial #122*23# to check unlocked Jumbo bonus balance.

Glo is looking to have a big harvest of new subscribers through the Jumbo SIM bonus and the everyday bonanza campaign in which dozens of Glo subscribers will win cool prizes including LED TV sets, 4G-LTE phones, generators, refrigerators, Microwave ovens and 4G-LTE MiFis. One lucky Glo subscriber will also win a brand new car every Sunday throughout the promotion.

Glo Free Data Day also comes up on Tuesday, 31st October 2017 for Glo customers.
