How to buy phone airtime from your Airtel Money wallet

Airtime is one of the top consumer products purchased by Kenyans daily according to the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS).  Before the introduction of Mobile Money services in Kenya, people entirely depended on scratch cards to top up airtime. Even though it is still in use.

However, the revolution brought about by mobile money services like Airtel Money has transformed numerous payment methods, like buying airtime.

With many options in the market to purchase airtime, one of the unique benefits of buying your airtime via Airtel Money is that you get 25 percent extra airtime for each purchase. Airtel is giving more value for less, given that airtime takes up a significant portion of budgets for both businesses and individuals.
