This post is all about the MTN Weekend Plan.
Hurray! Weekend is here again, and I guess you’re thinking of an amazing weekend where you’ll spend time on social media, chat with friends and family, make video calls, and even stream live football matches (especially for Chelsea, Arsenal & Man U fans) Lol.
While these are very good ways to spend your weekend, the only thing that may be stopping you is the high cost of data (I guess).
But since the introduction of the weekend plans on many Nigerian network operators, overthinking how to get cheap data plans on weekends is just a waste of time, for some network operators like Glo have made it available.
What about MTN?
I mean does MTN have weekend plans?
I have been getting this question for a long. But there is some controversy about the answer. Some people say MTN has a weekend plan, and some say they don’t.
Well, here in this post, I will your thoughts on whether the MTN weekend plan is available or not.
Without further ado, let’s get started!
About MTN Weekend Plan
Unlike the Glo Weekend Plan, the MTN network doesn’t have an official weekend data plan.
Although, formerly, MTN has a form of weekend data plan that comes in a bonus after subscribing to a specified data bundle on your MTN line. This weekend data bonus is called “MTN WowWeekend”.
This special offer was usually sent to qualified users via SMS. Below are some examples.
- Special offer! Buy 100MB for N200 and get 500MB FREE data. Dial *131*113# to activate. Dial *131*4# to view the data bonus. Bonus Valid for 24 hrs.
- Special offer! Buy 750MB for N500 and get 3.75GB FREE data. Dial *131*103# to activate. Dial *131*4# to view the data bonus. Bonus Valid till Sunday 11:59 pm.
However, MTN has discontinued these special offers, and users are no longer getting this SMS.
Moving forward, the fact that there isn’t an official weekend data bundle on the MTN network doesn’t mean there aren’t other interesting data plans for MTN users to enjoy on weekends.

How to Buy MTN Weekend Plans
Technically speaking, there are weekend plans on MTN, but there are still awesome data plans that serve as a replacement for the MTN weekend plan.
Just like the Airtel Weekend Plan, this plan consists of two bundles. One last for just 24 hours (in other words Saturday only), while the other lasts 2 days (Saturday and Sunday).
They can be activated using the code below.

How to Use MTN Weekend Bundle
Since the MTN weekend plans are not like normal weekend plan, the way to use them is quite different.
You can subscribe to this MTN data plan on Saturday morning and start using it till Sunday and even beyond. This is because it is just a regular data plan that is very cheap. So, it works like the regular data plans.
Just since you intended in using it during the weekend, you can subscribe to it on weekends.
MTN is without a doubt the largest telecommunication network operator in Nigeria, and with those exclusive data plans, they are always on top of the table as one of the best, if not the best.
I believe by now, how to buy weekend plan on MTN, and how to activate MTN weekend plan should not be a stress for you anymore.
