Airtime and Recharging > Online Recharge Promotion


Online Recharge Promotion

Online Recharge Promotion Overview

VMSA will launch an online recharge promotion for prepaid and postpaid customers by offering them bonus data with every airtime purchase via our website.


What does this mean? Customers can buy airtime online and they’ll get bonus data for free, zero, zilch, nothing! Awesome hey! 

How much bonus data is given away?

Bonus data will be equivalent to the standard recharge denomination values.

  • E.g. Recharge with R10 and get 10 MBs.
  • E.g. Recharge with R100 and get 100 MBs

If a customer recharges with a variable amount, they get bonus data equivalent to the denomination lower than the recharge value.

  • E.g. Recharge with R24 and get 20 MBs
  • E.g. Recharge with R150 and get 100 MBs
Recharge Amount Recharge Data (MBs)
R10 - R19.99 10 MBs
R20 – R29.99 20 MBs
R30 – R49.99 30 MBs
R50 – R99.99 50 MBs
R100 – R249.99 100 MBs
R250 – R499.99 250 MBs
R500+ 500 MBs
