Just like you love your pet, your room, your beautiful practical bag, Christmas food or decorating the Christmas tree. :) The app works like a miniature website, too mobile friendly to be true. It’s called MobileRecharge.com and it’s FREE to install on any Android or iOS device. Does it suit you? Perfect go ahead then… The app is the result of expat brainstorming and constant feedback, both for inexperienced and experienced users, so basically as easy as “yes, sir.”

Next you’ll be guided to make your recharge from scratch, by filling in few fields, as mentioned above. Or if you’re one of the old friends you can use a previously recharged phone number. If you’ve used a top up coupon before you already know the drill. ;)

But don’t forget to enter the top up coupon correctly in the checkout! OK? :)

Are you a Spanish speaker?

Then get the app in Spanish. ¡Qué bueno, qué bueno! no?

Just fill in a simple ONLINE form

We’ve all filled in a simple form at some point in our life. Imagine this is the simplest one you’ve seen! Here’s what it looks like.

MobileRecharge.com FORM

  • Country stands for the country where your friend or relative whose mobile phone you want to recharge lives.
  • Operator stands for the local telecom provider of that person, more specifically the network the number you want to recharge belongs to. You’d better ask instead of assuming, since many port in their phone numbers to other companies for better deals. But that would spoil the surprise, right? Yet, Christmas is not yet here, so may not make the connection. See what we mean? :)
  • Phone number is the mere prepaid phone number you want to use your top up coupon to recharge.
  • Amount is the section where you can play according to your budget. 5% discount is as big as the amount you send.

Double check the prepaid number you want to recharge, and don’t forget to enter your top up coupon 18XMASLIFE5MR. 

How do I pay?

Good question! You have several options according to your preference. You can use your PayPal account or any Visa or Mastercard credit or debit card.

Any top up service is a transfer of goods, not a currency exchange service. So, you may not have the same money equivalent that you get with a bank or a financial institution. There is a minimal processing fee of up to $2 according to the destination. It covers all the international transactions that are made to make the international online top up ready in seconds. Also, you may notice a local fee added if you use your top up coupon to send credit to certain countries. Relax, there are few countries that require that.

Oh, something else. It’s the most sanitary online environment. The app and the website are fraud-proof, as confirmed by the labels down the homepage. Have a look! 

Send a FREE SMS to Cuba or Mexico along your top up

If you’re using top up coupon 18XMASLIFE5MR to recharge a mobile phone in Cuba or Mexico you have the option to add a free SMS to the person you’re sending it to. So, customize your message as you please. This is a good chance to talk about your gift or send a thought that was boiling for a while, or just say hi, so that he/she knows who topped up their phone.
