Not long ago, I posted an article about the Airtel double data code, and since then, a lot has been going on with MTN too, as some users have started seeking the MTN double data code.
Although the MTN network has tons of incredible and cheap data bundles, when it comes to double data, you should know that it’s like a freebie.
And that has made a lot of customers start taking advantage of the offer. Think about it, why would you buy 1.5GB bundle for N1000, when you can get a whopping 3GB data for that same N1000.
That’s why I’ve brought before you the MTN double data code to show you exactly how to get double data on MTN.
Of course, you’ll discover everything from the eligibility and activation to the duration and also the MTN double data cheat code.
If you’re ready to enjoy the 2X offer, then read on.
About MTN Double Data Offer
MTN double data sometimes referred to as the MTN 100% data bonus is an exclusive offer recently launched by the MTN network to compensate customers for data subscriptions.
That simply means you can use the MTN double data code to enjoy 2 times (2X) the value of your data purchase on the MTN network.
For example, if you buy 500 Naira bundle that gives 750MB regular data, you’ll get 1.5GB instead, with the MTN double data offer.
Why this offer is called the MTN 100 percent data bonus offer is that as you can see in the example given above, you get 100% or 2X the value of your data subscription (i.e 750MB + 750MB = 1.5GB).
While this offer is amazing, it is not available for all MTN customers, as there is an eligibility requirement that comes with it.
Although, it’s very important you know the eligibility criteria of this offer, let’s see how to get MTN double data first, then we’ll talk about the eligibility later in this post.

How to Get Double Data on MTN
The MTN double data offer can be activated in two ways. The first one is the 100% working one, while the second type is 50/50.
What does that mean?
The first MTN double data offer is the YafunYafun double data offer that can be activated only on SIMs that are subscribed to the MTN Yafun Yafun tariff plan.
While the second one is kind of a cheat code that let you get 2X data value. I called this 50/50 because it may and may not be available.
Now, starting from the YafunYafun double data, how do you activate it?
MTN Double Data Code
The MTN double data code is the normal data plan code *131#, and the list of the available MTN double data plans will show up on your screen.
After dialing the double data code on MTN, you’ll see a list of normal data bundles. However, when you subscribe to any of the plans, you’ll double the volume of the package upon activation.
For example, if you buy 1.5GB for N1000, after subscribing, you’ll get an additional 1.5GB data bonus making it 3GB for 1000 altogether.
Note: This MTN double data code only works on the MTN Yafun Yafun tariff plan. Therefore, if you’re on Pulse or BetaTalk, you may not get your data doubled after subscription.

Other Methods on How to Get MTN Double Data
There are claims that you can activate MTN double data following the steps below. However, it is just like the 50/50 double data code that I just showed you above.
Chances are you may not have the offer available for you. But you can try it if you wish.

- Navigate to the messaging app on your phone and type in “DOUBLE” in the text box, then send it to 131: DOUBLE to 131.
- MTN is likely to send you a quick reply that contains some slightly long text that seems like the action is successful, forget about the message and proceed with the next step below.
- Once again, type in “PROMO” in the text box and send to 131: PROMO to 131
- As usual, MTN will inbox you with another quick reply just ignore them and continue with the next step.
- For one last time, type in “FREE” in the text box and send to 131: FREE to 131
