How to Borrow Airtime from Glo
Glo offers a service called “Borrow Me Credit” that allows subscribers to borrow airtime and pay it back later. Here’s how you can do it:
1. Check Eligibility:
Before you can borrow airtime on Glo, you need to ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria. To check if you’re eligible, dial *321# on your Glo line. If you’re eligible, you’ll receive a notification confirming your eligibility. If you’re not eligible, you may need to recharge and use your Glo line for some time to become eligible.
2. Borrow Airtime:
Once you’re eligible, you can borrow airtime by following these steps:
- Dial *321*Amount# on your Glo line.
- [Amount]: Specify the amount of airtime you want to borrow (e.g., 321100# to borrow N100).
- You’ll receive a confirmation message indicating that your request for airtime has been granted, and the borrowed amount will be credited to your account.
When you borrow airtime from Glo, you’re essentially taking a loan that needs to be paid back. Glo will deduct the borrowed amount along with a service charge from your next recharge. The service charge varies depending on the borrowed amount.
4. Check Borrowed Airtime Balance:
To check the balance of the airtime you’ve borrowed from Glo, you can dial *321*8# on your Glo line.
Borrowing airtime from Glo is a convenient way to stay connected even when you’re low on credit. Whether it’s for emergency calls or just to maintain your communication with loved ones, Glo’s “Borrow Me Credit” service provides an easy and accessible solution. Just remember to repay the borrowed airtime when you recharge next to continue enjoying the benefits of this service. With this knowledge in hand, you can confidently use Glo’s airtime borrowing feature and ensure that you’re never stranded without credit when you need it the most.
