Customers have the choice to purchase bundles on auto-renewal or as a one-time option. If you fail to buy a bundle, Airtel will charge your Ksh0.2 per MB.

Another important thing to note is that you will consume the free 500MB first if you buy a bundle that qualifies for this offer. Moreover, you can gift another number a bundle with free 500MB.

To buy any of the above data bundles, dial *544#.
