If you are an Access bank account holder in Nigeria, there are probably many ways to load airtime credit to or recharge your gsm powered mobile phone but I have to say that nothing beats it best like their new easy airtime recharge recharge service using the USSD code *901*Amount#. Yes, all you need to do is dialing *901*Amount# and the amount will be loaded to your account subsequently.

Sure, one can buy airtime credit from any of the available networks in Nigeria such as MTN, GLO, Airtel or Etisalat using internet banking, ATM, Quickteller, Paga and mobile money but I have to say that this USSD option which only requires that you dial the code makes it the easiest way to buy airtime credit.

I have to also add that this is a green innovation ad they are encouraging Nigerian GSM subscribers to move away from the old method of buying recharge cards and wasting paper or trees just to load airtime when they can now do it from their mobile phone. It's really easy peasy!

All it basically requires is for the person to be an Access bank customer, use his bank registered phone to buy the airtime and it will be delivered to you afterwards.

I tried it and it worked even though I only tried buying a N50 from MTN. It was not loaded immediately but afterwards although I got an immediate reply that the request was being processed. So, if you use it and don't get airtime immediately but got a confirmation that it is being processed, no need to dial *901* again.

They also have a mobile webpage version where people can visit with their browsers and be able to load airtime using a web to dial approach. See it here

This service works in partnership with Virtual Top Up platforms for the various GSM networks and as usual, I think there is a minimum and maximum you can load per day and it would probably only work with phones that already receive sms alerts from Access bank.
