Safaricom has a Bonga points royalty service that rewards its subscribers with points every time they load airtime credit to their account by scratch card, M-Pesa, or third party. For every 10 shillings credit you top up, you are rewarded with 1 point. You can later redeem your Bonga points for airtime, SMS, internet bundles, buy phones and tablets from Safaricom outlets and even pay for goods and services.
First, you need to enroll for the Bonga point royalty service by dialing *126#.
You will be presented with the following menu:
Select Enroll, and then Send.
Follow through with the instructions to get registered.
You will receive an SMS notification immediately informing you that your registration has been successful. You will then automatically get 10 free points to start you off.
To check your Bonga points balance, dial *126# and select Check Bonga Points.
You will be presented with your Bonga points balance and how much they are worth. Each Bonga point is worth 20 cents (0.20 Kenya shilling).
From the *126# menu, you can even transfer your points to another Safaricom user enrolled into Bonga points. That is, provided you remain with a minimum of 50 Bonga points.
