If you buy airtime in bulk this can a great way to save. The other great thing about it, because you are paying much less for the airtime compared to buying it from a store is the fact that you can make your money back, with a profit, if you sell it to store or to friends and family. The airtime you purchase in bulk from the supplier is sent to you via text message. However, this does not always guarantee that you will receive your vouchers. Many people that participate in these deals are in it to make profits. It is a great way to earn a few extra pennies. You could transfer the airtime if you prefer or you could keep it for yourself.
There are many suppliers out there that sell, Cell C, MTN and Vodacom vouchers and you can take advantage of this and buy airtime in bulk that you can later sell from behind a vending machine or just pass out to friends and family through generosity. The other thing that you should also find out is how long the vouchers are valid for. Most of the time the vouchers are valid for 24 months from the day it is purchased, but it is always better to be sure. The voucher numbers are sent through via SMS and many of the suppliers will not take responsibility for any undelivered voucher numbers.
Making cash deposits to purchase airtime will allow you to save on fees and you will be charged transfer costs when doing it through your bank. Make sure that you have a look at all the options that are available and make sure that you have done the necessary research to be sure that you are doing the right thing with the right people.
