Virgin Mobile has launched a new prepaid price plan which gives users free bonus mobile data and text messages (SMS).
The operator will also offer prepaid customers free airtime on Sundays, based on how much a user spends recharging their account.
The Sunday bonus will see users receive 20% of their recharge for the proceeding week as free airtime on Sunday – which can be used for calls, text messages, or data.
For example: If you recharge with R20 during the week, you will get R4 on Sunday for the day, for free.
The prepaid price plan and bonus data/SMS offers are detailed in the tables below.
|Virgin Mobile Prepaid Rates|
All Virgin Mobile prepaid bundles are valid for 60 days, and receive either the My Bonus, or My Bonus and Group Bonus rewards.
Airtime bundles are available in the following denominations.
|Virgin Mobile Bonus|
|R20||My and Group Bonus|
|R30||My and Group Bonus|
|R50||My and Group Bonus|

Along with the new prepaid rates comes the My Bonus rewards, which give users bonus data or SMSs with every recharge. Users can choose between free data or text messages every 30 days by dialing *108#.
The validity of the the bonus data or text messages is dependent on the initial recharge value – as shown below.

Group Bonus gifts users’ friends with free data when the user recharges with R20 or more.
While the users can choose whether they want bonus text messages or data when they recharge, Group Bonus friends will only receive free data.
Three friends can be selected every time your recharge. To enable the “group setup”, dial *108#.
