The Airtel Double offer promo has been going a while. On July 2018, I activated the Airtel 5.5GB with N2500, and received 11GB, and also Airtel 12GB with N5000 bundle, which gaves me 24GB and they works.
Right now, Airtel 2500 gives you 5.5GB (4.5GB + 1GB Night) and note that the Night Data is usable 1AM – 7AM Daily. While the Airtel N5000 gives you 12GB (10GB + **2GB Night), Night Data is usable 1AM – 7AM Daily.

How to Subscribe to Airtel 2500
So I decided to try it out on my Airtel Sim and it worked; I recharged with N2500 from my bank transaction dialed the above code and this was the message I received;
– Receive:Your Airtel Android 2.5GB Bundle plan + No PAYG has been activated

How to Check your Airtel Data Plan
There are numerous ways to check your Airtel Data Plan, but to confirm if you received the 100% data plan, then you’ll have to make use of *140#. This was the message, I received!
Your Balances are: 4500MB till 25-Jul.

What If I don’t receive the double data offer?
Most times, Airtel won’t automatically send you the Congratulations message, neither, will they top-up your Data balance, but if within 24hours, there is no change or message, then you will be left with no choice than to use the 5.5GB through the month of July!
It is now up to you and your SIM card!
