The Nigerian banking sector in recent times has started a series of activities that has definitely being making life easier for us, and this time, I’ll be introducing you to the First Bank Instant Airtime Top-Up (recharge) service.
Just like the Guarantee Trust Bank Airtime Recharge Using USSD shortcode and SMS post I wrote a while back, First bank also has a similar feature for her customers to easily buy recharge or airtime simply by dialing a set of numbers on your mobile phone.
All you need for this to work if you bank with Nigerian First Bank is your phone number being linked with your bank account. As long you receive your bank alert text messages on your mobile phone, your are 100% qualified to use this service. Follow the steps carefully to instantly purchase airtime or recharge credit as it is most times referred to using your First Bank account.
To recharge your mobile line, dial *894*AMOUNT#
Let’s say you wish to recharge N2000 (Two thousand Naira) airtime on your linked mobile phone line, all you need do is dial *894*2000# . Your line would be credited with the amount while your First Bank account gets debited.
Note: If you want to make use of this service, you should note that you are limited to N3000 daily airtime recharge transaction on this platform.
I hope this post helps.
