New Virgin Mobile prepaid rates with bonus mobile data and free airtime

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.
