Safaricom triple your airtime with Create my bundle Tunukiwa Kredo DaboDabo option is something I learned about today via a text message I received around eleven in the morning. It is a new option Safaricom has introduced in the *444*0# (Tunukiwa Kredo DaboDabo) menu.
What most customers using the telco are accustomed to is usually the two-times airtime (double) they get when they purchase airtime via the Kredo DaboDabo menu – for example buying KSh 20 airtime and getting 40 Shillings airtime to use within 24 hours. The airtime can be used to call other networks like Airtel Kenya, Telkom Kenya and Equitel.
But using the Safaricom Create My Bundle option introduced recently, one can actually three times their airtime (triple it) by purchasing the amount they want. So, for example buying KSh 20 airtime and getting 60 Shillings to use within 24 hours.
Here is the SMS Safaricom sent me.
‘TRIPLE your airtime, get to talk two times more with Tunukiwa kredo DaboDabo, dial *444*0# now and select Create My Bundle and get upto 200% extra talktime.’
Probably you’ve received a similar message by now.

Some observations about Safaricom Tunukiwa Kredo DaboDabo Create my Bundle
- When you buy KSh 5 airtime, you will only receive 9 Shillings airtime.
- When you buy Kenya Shillings 11 airtime, you will receive 28 Bob Talktime.
- When you buy KSh 15 airtime, the amount will be tripled. So, you will get 45 Shillings.
- When you buy KSh 50 airtime, you will receive a total of 150 Shillings airtime.
- When you buy KSh 100 airtime, the amount will be tripled. So, you will get KSh 300.
But remember these offers are tailor-made to each customer. So, what you might find in your Kredo DaboDabo -> Create my Bundle menu may not look like some of the things I have mentioned above. For example, here are the figures I get when I use the Create my Bundle feature on another Safaricom line.
- For Sh 5, I am told I’ll get 9 Bob Talktime.
- For Sh 11, I am told I’ll get 19 Bob Talktime.
- For Sh 15, I am told I’ll get 26 Bob Talktime.
- For Sh 50, I am told I’ll get 125 Bob Talktime.
- For Sh 60, I am told I’ll get 180 Bob Talktime.
- For Sh 70, I am told I’ll get 210 Bob Talktime.
- For Sh 100, I am told I’ll get 300 Bob Talktime.
Another thing you will notice is that under the Tunukiwa Kredo DaboDabo menu there are still the 200% offers that have always been the only items under the *444*0# menu until the Create my Bundle option was introduced. So, you will still find items like these listed there every time you dial *444*0#
- Create my Bundle
- Sh 10 (20 Bob airtime for 24 hrs)
- Sh 70 (140 Bob airtime for 24 hrs)
- Sh 100 (200 Bob airtime for 24 hrs)
