MTN Pulse Points – What Are They, What They’re Used For, & How to Get Them


What are MTN Pulse Points?

Simply, MTN Pulse Points are simply points, or in this case, rewards you get for being and performing activities as an MTN Pulse tariff plan subscriber, which can later be exchanged or redeemed for free data.

These activities include making calls with your line, buying data plans, or even sharing airtime and data with the MTN mobile app.

1 Pulse point earned is equivalent to 1 naira, so the number of Pulse points you have can be exchanged for any data plan that is worth that amount.

For instance, if you have 500 Pulse points in your account, then you can exchange these for any data plan that is worth ₦500.
