GTBank Airtime Recharge Code

Ever need to buy airtime, going to a shop / store nearby to purchase one seems likely. How about sitting down wherever you are and dialing a code from your mobile phone to purchase airtime directly from your bank account, sounds more interesting.

If you are a GTBank customer, then you can do that using the GTBank airtime recharge code which I will be introducing to you.

What is the GTBank Airtime Recharge Code?

The GTBank airtime recharge code is the GTBank mobile USSD code which is “*737#”. It is 3 digits in number and also easy to memorize.

With this code, you can buy airtime directly from your bank account in just minutes anywhere you are. How do you do this?

How to use the GTBank Airtime Recharge Code to buy Airtime?

If you want to buy airtime, it is either you are buying it for yourself (Self Recharge) or you are buying it for someone else (Third Party Recharge). The GT Bank airtime recharge code works for both ways and using it is pretty simple but before you can purchase airtime, you need to create your transaction pin (if you have not).

Your transaction pin is used to secure all transactions you make with the *737# USSD code. To create this pin;

* Dial *737*5# (or dial *737# and reply with “10”)

* Select if you are using your Debit Card or not  

* Input the last 6 digits of your Debit Card or 10 digits of your account if you chose without debit card

* Create a 4-digit PIN.

The pin should be something you can remember easily because you will constantly make use of it as far as the *737# code is concerned. With your transaction pin created, you can now go ahead to buy airtime by following the below instructions;

• Self Recharge; To buy airtime for yourself, dial *737*Airtime Amount# from the phone number registered with your GT Bank account. For example, let’s say you want to recharge your line with N1,000, you will dial *737*1000#.

• Third Party Recharge; To buy airtime for other people, dial *737*Airtime Amount*Phone Number# (E.g. *737*1000*09061333155). The third party can also be your other phone numbers not connected to your GT Bank account.

After a successful recharge, you will be notified and your bank account will be debited with the recharge amount.
