Signing up or refilling with the promotion minimum, customers will receive a “Superbono” (Super Bonus). Following the refill, customers will receive a text (SMS) message to choice either two days of free internet of up to 1 Mbps or two days of unlimited text messaging.

But, there are catches.

One, to make the choice, customers are required to send back a text message which will cost ¢500 colones.

Two, the refills cannot be accumulated. That is, if you refill two times ¢1.000 you do not get four days, always two. Or if you refill at one time ¢2.000, again, only two days and not four.

Three, the ¢500 cost is for each Super Bonus you activate.

Four, text messaging is only for local operators (no international texting) and does not include premium, such as adding photos or videos.
