MTN Ghana to Phase Out Scratch Cards by June 2024

Effective 30th June 2024, MTN Ghana will phase out its scratch cards, originally introduced in 2020. This means that from 1st July 2024, customers will no longer be able to recharge using unused MTN scratch cards.

In a statement released on Thursday, May 23, 2024, Chief Sales and Distribution Officer, Samuel Addo, announced that customers can redeem the value of their scratch cards via credit transfer at any MTN Customer Experience Centre.

Aligning with Digitalisation and Environmental Goals

This initiative is part of MTN’s strategy to lead digital solutions in Ghana and support the Government of Ghana’s digitalisation agenda. Samuel Addo emphasized that phasing out scratch cards will help protect the environment, empower customers to drive digital usage, and enhance customer service efficiency.

“The phasing out of the scratch cards is one of the avenues to help us protect the environment, empower customers to drive digital usage and make customer service delivery more efficient,” stated Addo.
