Imagine when you’re making an important call and you discovered your airtime got exhausted at the middle of the call, and you are scared of borrowing airtime from your service provider because of the 15% commission and also while there is no ATM machine near you to quickly recharge from your bank account. Then the best option for you is to use the USSD codes to buy airtime from your banks.
Why USSD code Option is the Best
Ø It is easier and faster to use.
Ø It does not require ATM machine before it could work.

To Recharge Your own Line
Just like I have said earlier, If you want to buy airtime for your phone then simply dial the USSD code *894*Amount# (It must be on the phone number you registered with the bank).
Hence, Your account will be credited with the value you entered. for example, dial *894*100# will credit your phone with NGN100 airtime.

To send recharge card from your First Bank account to your loved ones, you will need to enter the USSD code, amount and the person’s phone number.
For example, dial *894*Amount*Phone number# that is, *894*100*07012345678# will send NGN100 airtime to 07012345678
