We discovered we were able to directly buy MTN WhatsApp data bundles using our FNB banking app. The other way we found if we wanted WhatsApp data bundles we would have to convert our airtime using the MTN App or USSD code and then buy an MTN Social Bundle or a combo special.

These are the best WhatsApp data bundles per validity period (1 Day, 3 Days, 7 Days, 20 Days, or 30 Days) and how to get them. This is based on the usage of an average person who wants to send photos and videos, watch WhatsApp statuses, and chat all day, and not someone who runs a business on WhatsApp. These bundles are also not for WhatsApp Video or Voice calls.

MTN Social bundles are data bundles that allow a subscriber to access websites or use apps such as TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, or watch YouTube videos. These bundles are valid for only a certain period of time, ranging from 1 day up to 30 days after activation of the bundle.
