Following the extension of the COVID-19 lockdown for another 21 days, Airtel Uganda has introduced a new campaign that encourages subscribers to become community champions by loading airtime for their friends and families safely and conveniently using Airtel’s digital solutions.
The Airtel Uganda digital solutions include: the My Airtel App; online recharge portal which is available on the Airtel website; USSD channel using Airtel Money wallet; and through the App and website, the customer can either pay through Airtel Money or Credit/Debit cards.
As part of the campaign, the community champion gets 3% airtime back instantly as a reward for recharging their family & friend. The cashback is received instantly and goes to the subscribers main account to be used without any validity restrictions.
Community Champions can earn their 3% instant cashback from transactions as low as 100 shillings. For debit, credit card and other wallet options, there is a minimum threshold for recharge of 150,000 shillings to receive the 3% airtime back.
How to become an Airtel Uganda community champion
To use the Airtel self-care app, subscribers simply have to click on ‘Buy Airtime’, enter mobile number of friend or family member (or) choose from contacts, enter amount they want to recharge, choose a payment option & complete payment.
Subscribers using feature phones and cannot download the app can also be part of this promotion by buying any airtime for friends & family through USSD Airtel Money menu & earning the cashback of 3%. They simply have to Dial *185#, Select Airtime/Bundles, Select Buy Airtime, select for another number, Enter Mobile number, Enter Amount and Enter PIN to confirm payment.
