For all time clients, MTN has its loyalty program. This loyalty program works on the scheme where according to your activity and usage of MTN you get additional points on your account.

MTN data bundles are activated with the special code you get from the operator. The duration of the bundle begins on the day you enabled it or with a free SMS with the code. For example, if your contact with the company says that you should pay every 5th day of the month, it is doesn’t mean it will stop your bundle. If it is a monthly bundle, in case you start it on the 10th day, it will work until the 10th day of next month with no matter if you paid for your contact or not.
