NEW! How Cubans abroad get the chance to send Triple Bono again!

Cuba opens up more to Cubans abroad, this time by offering a long awaited Cubacel promo. If late 2017 the Cuban government announced their availability to facilitate citizenship acquisition for children born to Cubans abroad and give up some restrictions upon Cuban emigrants, it is now open to re-launch the Triple Bono campaign from Cubacel. Don’t blame us for making putting all these together. They may not be comparable, but the impact is strong among Cubans abroad in all cases. You may wonder “When was the last time Cubans abroad got the chance to send Triple Bono to their folks in Cuba?” Good point! :)

Most of the Cubans abroad hardly remember the last time they got to send Triple Bono, the classic recipe. But despite Cubacel monthly generosity, the Cuban fans on kept hunting for the Triple Bono campaign on their top ups of mobile phones in Cuba. And although Cubacel has tried different recipes lately, that kept away any pattern similar to Doble or Triple Bonus, these stayed the best options. And luckily, we have both in May 2018. Long live the promotional era! :)

How to use the Cubacel promo in May to send “Triple Bono”

No philosophy, only eyes wide open!
The option is open for recharges between 20-60 CUC. Check your pocket, weigh your budget, count the people in Cuba you want to send Triple Bono Cubacel, and and decide between the following order values on 20 CUC, 40 CUC and 60 CUC.
Somehow strange, the Triple Bono tradition got its name from Triple Recharge (triple top up balance) actually. In fact, it has always been about 200% FREE extra Cubacel credit when you send Triple Bono. But once Cubans abroad called it Triple Bono, it stayed that way.
In May, if you’re a Triple Bonus nostalgic, you need to pick wise. Here are the values that can help you send Triple Bono Cubacel to your relatives and friends.

  • YOU send
  • 20 CUC
  • 40 CUC
  • 60 CUC
  • Cubacel Bonus
  • 40 CUC
  • 80 CUC
  • 120 CUC
  • They receive
  • 60 CUC
  • 120 CUC
  • 180 CUC

MORE than Doble Bono in the house. Sí, sí!

    • 25 CUC + Bonus 40 CUC = 65 CUC
    • 30 CUC + Bonus 40 CUC = 70 CUC
    • 50 CUC + Bonus 80 CUC = 130 CUC
 If you select any default top-up value between 25 CUC to 50 CUC in the online form on, you’ll actually pick more than Doble Bono. That is, more than 100% free extra Cubacel credit promo. Is that what you plan for a while for your cute cousin, warm-hearted mom, or the big dancer in your life? ;)
