GLO like other Nigerian Telecommunications company allow eligible customers to borrow airtime or data in advance and pay back on later recharges.

To break it down, if you run out of airtime while making an important call and need at least N100 worth of airtime to continue the call then you can simply borrow on your GLO line and pay back next time you recharge, provided other alternatives like VTU top-up or recharge card purchase are not viable or out of reach.

It works same way for borrowing data, that is, if you need at least 500MB of data to stream a sporting event online then you can simply borrow data on your GLO line and pay back with subsequent airtime purchases depending on your eligibility.

What do I mean by Eligibility?

Your eligibility status determines if you can borrow airtime or data on your GLO line and it depends on certain conditions stipulated by your network provider, in this case, GLO.

To be considered eligible to borrow airtime or data, you must have met the following conditions;

  • Be a GLO user for not less than four months on your current line.
  • For the “Borrow me data’ service, the user must have been active for at least three months.
  • Be a prepaid customer.
  • You average monthly usage must be at least N200 worth of airtime.

According to GLO, the tables below indicates how much you can borrow in advance based on your average monthly usage.

Denomination (N) Time on Network (Months) Average Monthly Refills Average Monthly Usage (N)
50 2 4 200.00
100 2 4 400.00
200 2 4 800.00
500 2 4 2000.00
1000 2 4 5000.00

For Data

*321#: Borrowing airtime on your GLO line

You can borrow on your GLO line when you exhaust airtime on your phone in one, two easy steps. Simply dial *321*amount#. For example;

  • To borrow N200 worth of airtime, dial *321*200#.
  • To borrow N500 worth of airtime, dial *321*500#
  • To borrow N1000 worth of airtime, dial *321*1000#

Note:

  • The GLO borrow me credit service attracts a charge of 15% of the value of whatever amount you borrow. If you borrow N500, your GLO line will be credited with N425.
  • You cannot borrow again until you have paid your outstanding debt. That is you immediately become ineligible to borrow any further once you have taken a loan.
  • You can make calls within Nigeria to all networks and outside Nigeria using borrowed credit.
  • You can browse the internet with borrowed credit.
  • There is no minimum balance to qualify to use the borrow me credit service.
