When I opened my Gtbank Gtcrea8 account last year, my main aim was for strict savings. I just created the account, collected and activated by Atm card and just left it. I didn’t bother registering for any Internet banking or whatsoever. Now, most times I expect payment in this same account, it sometimes comes without a Credit Alert, I’d have to walk down to an Atm machine to check my account balance.
I heard about the short code *737# used for all Gtbank mobile banking activities. I tried it with my card and I was told my card was Inactive or so. I had to chat with Gtbank customer care on their Facebook page where I was given an alternative.
To check your Gtbank account balance without using the *737# short code or Internet banking, simply send a text message with the Number Registered to the bank account in this format – BAL ‘Account Number’ to 08076665555. e.g, BAL 0179850278 to 08076665555. You’ll be charged a normal SMS fee of ₦4.00 and your Account balance would be sent to you immediately.
More Info: The Amount limit of a Gtcrea8 account is N1M.
