In addition, you earn pulse points when you make voice calls and activate selected data bundles.

  • How to Earn Pulse Points 

There are several ways you can earn pulse points as an MTN Pulse subscriber. These include:

  • Making voice calls: In this case, you will earn 1 point for every cumulative 5-minute call you make, whether it be national, international, or roaming calls
  • Transferring airtime/data via the myMTN App
  • Purchasing or gifting daily, weekly, monthly, or IG/TikTok/YouTube data bundles

Whenever you earn a Pulse point, you’ll receive a pop-up message or an SMS message to notify you that you’ve earned a certain number of Pulse points for performing any of the actions we just outlined above. 

It’s important to put in mind that the number of pulse points you earn from data purchases or giftings depends on the value of the data you purchased. That means, for example, the Pulse point you will earn for purchasing or gifting N100 worth of data would be smaller in value than what you’ll get if you purchased or gifted N3000 worth of data. 

Note that 1 Pulse point equates to N1 worth of airtime balance. That is to say, if you have 100 Pulse points, it means you have N100 worth of airtime balance. 

  • How to Check Pulse Point Balance 

Checking the number of Pulse points you’ve accumulated is very easy. To check your Pulse point balance, simply *406*7#. You’d receive a text message containing how much your Pulse point balance is.
