The ‘more credit’ recharge option gives them a bonus of up to 30% and 30 days’ validity on every recharge. There is a 5% bonus on every ‘more time’ recharge as well.


“Our Pay as You Go® customers rely on du for exceptional value and rewards. The new recharge offer not only provides our customers extra credit every time they recharge but also an extended validity period that allows them to use the credit as per their convenience. This is proof that du is committed to finding new and exciting ways to reward its valued subscribers,” said Farid Faraidooni, EVP Commercial, du.


Customers who recharge with the ‘more credit’ option (valid for all types of calls) will earn the following bonuses: 15% with AED 20; 20% with AED 50; 25% with AED 100; and 30% with AED 200. They will also get a validity period of 30 days on all recharges.

In addition to the new bonus offer, prepaid customers will continue to receive free SMSs automatically, every time they top up their accounts, as part of du’s current ‘Free SMS’ promotion. Recharge cards worth AED 20 give two free SMS; AED 50 cards give five free SMS; AED 100 cards give ten free SMS; and AED 200 cards give 20 free SMS.


In addition to this, customers can participate in the Recharge, Win and Save Promotion, organised jointly with National Bonds, by first registering through an SMS with the word ‘draw’ to 1116. Then, they can enter the draw simply by recharging their du line with ‘more credit’ or ‘more international’ recharge options, or by purchasing an Elite or Premier Plan. A recharge amount of AED 20 qualifies for one entry into the draw. AED 50 for two entries, AED 100 for five entries and AED 200 for 10 entries – so the more customers recharge with du, the better their chances of winning big.
