5 Bonga Points to Mpesa Services to Try in Kenya

Bonga Points to Mpesa Cash Services Kenya

Given that your Bonga Points now expire after 3 years, you no longer have the luxury to wait until you’ve accumulated enough to buy that discounted phone from Safaricom shops.

You can either spend them via Lipa na Bonga to buy goods and services from local shops, or you could do what many people are now doing:

Transfer Bonga Points to cash.

Now, Safaricom doesn’t have this Mpesa redemption option, but there are some great Bonga Points to Mpesa service providers that you can leverage.

Before converting bonga points to cash

You need to know the worth of the Bonga Points you wish to convert. You can use the Safaricom Bonga Points calculator by following these steps:

  • Dial *126#
  • Choose the option that says Lipa na Bonga Points. (Usually no. 2)
  • Then Select Bonga Calculator. (Usually no. 3)
  • Note: Unless they’ve changed the order, pressing 126*2*3# should take you to step 3 directly.
  • Select the first option that says 1: Points you wish to redeem
  • Enter the number of points you want to convert to cash, say 1000.

Alternatively, most Bonga Points to Mpesa services mentioned in this blog post have a calculator to help you calculate the worth of your Bonga points. But Money.ke also has its own.

You can use our Bonga Points calculator here

You will then receive a prompt that says: You require 1000 Bonga Points to Make a payment of Kshs 200. Proceed to Pay.

Your Bonga Points worth, in the above case, is Kshs 200. This is the amount you will enter when using the following services.

The amount you will receive via Mpesa will be lower than 200 since the conversion services do take a cut. This cut varies depending on the service you choose to work with. That’s how they make money.
