Most commercial banks in Nigeria now have a USSD banking platform, and you can expect UBA to be among them. After all, they are a reputable banking institution not just in the country but in Africa at large.
UBA USSD banking is nicknamed “919 Magic Banking”. As an account holder with the bank, there are a lot of benefits that come with using this service. For example, you get up to a 50% bonus on every airtime purchase. This is really cool because the airtime transaction is how we are going to get our data.
How to Use UBA Bank USSD Code to Buy Data
Well, unfortunately, there is no direct way to buy data from UBA USSD Banking. The only thing left to do is to buy airtime from the service and then move to your network provider to buy the data. So the airtime you’ll buy must be the cost of the data you want.
- To buy airtime for the phone number linked to your UBA account, dial *919*Amount# i.e *919*500#
- To buy airtime to a phone number not linked to your UBA account, dial *919*Amount*Phone Number# i.e. *919*500*08123245657#
- Once you’ve gotten the airtime, you can now buy the data you want from your network provider, which is always done instantly.
The daily recharge limit on UBA USSD Banking is N5,000. Also, to get the 50% airtime bonus, you must recharge at least N500 from 9:19 AM. Only the first 100 customers from the time will be rewarded and it is capped at N500 i.e. N1000 airtime recharge gives you an extra N500. Any recharge above N1,000 will still give you a capped bonus of N500.
