Recharging is helping. With every recharge you bring the Cubans closer, inside and outside of the country, through the possibilities offered by the telecommunication services.
When you recharge, you turn your money into phone calls, text messages or Nauta emails, benefiting your family and friends in Cuba. This way, you allow them to be in touch with you anytime they want to or need to.
Who can purchase a recharge?
Anyone with access to the Internet and an electronic payment system can purchase a recharge in Cuba.
This transaction can be done using a debit or credit card (Visa, Mastercard or Discovery) or a Paypal account.
If you are in Cuba, with access to the Internet as well as a payment system like the ones listed above, you could purchase as many recharges as you wish.
If you don't fulfill all these requirements, you can also request a recharge from your family and friends outside the country who have access to these methods of payment.
There are simple recharges, which you can purchase every day, and promotional recharges. These last ones are limited to approximately 5 days and it is repeated almost every month. That interval, as well as the general terms of the promotion, is determined by ETECSA.
During the days of the promotion, on top of any amount of money that the sender purchases, the person in Cuba receives a bonus that can be used for calling, emailing or texting.
The bonus has an expiration date, determined also by ETECSA, and can be seen every time the balance is checked, separated from the main remaining balance. Which means, if you don't use the bonus before the date, it will be gone! 💸
