Airtime Bonuses For Staxxers in Kenya

2 min readMay 24, 2022

Hi there Staxxers,

We are very excited to announce that Stax users in Kenya will now get extra airtime (bonus) whenever they use Mpesa to top up their airtime on the Stax app.

The Bonus

Stax allows users in more than 6 African countries to send and request money, buy airtime, pay bills and transfer money between their own accounts with or without data or stable internet connection. That’s right! Stax works offline; and, in addition, gives you complete control of your money by enabling you to manage your multiple banks or mobile money accounts in one app.

To go a step further and starting with Kenya, buying airtime on Stax now comes with an extra benefit.

Every time you buy airtime (of at least 50 ksh) and pay using your Mpesa on Stax, you’d get between 3% & 5% in bonus.

How Does It Work?

  • Buy at least 50 Ksh worth of airtime on the Stax app and pay using Mpesa.
  • Immediately after the successful transaction, you’d instantly get credited with the bonus.
  • The bonus goes to the number is airtime both for. i.e. if you buy for your phone number, the bonus is credited to your number. But if you buy for a friend, the bonus goes to their number.
  • The airtime bonus is only available to users in Kenya.
  • Bonus is available for only airtime purchases between 50 Ksh and 10K Ksh
  • You need an airtime balance of at least 1 Ksh and enough MPESA balance to pay for the airtime you want to purchase. For example, if you plan to buy 50 Ksh airtime, you’d need at least 50 Ksh in your Mpesa plus 1 Ksh in airtime balance. Likewise, if you plan to purchase 300 Ksh airtime, you’d need at least 300 Ksh in your Mpesa plus 1 Ksh in airtime balance.
  • The 1 Ksh airtime deduction is a telco fee and it doesn’t change, no matter the amount of airtime purchased.
  • However, your airtime bonus increases the more airtime you buy. for instance: 50 Ksh gives you a 3% bonus. 100 Kshgives you a 4% bonus. 200 Ksh gives you a 4.75% bonus. 500 Ksh gives you a 4.80% bonus. 1,000 Ksh gives you a 4.90% bonus. 10,000 Ksh gives you a 5% bonus
