    Top Up cards and sales tax

    I am not complaining about paying sales tax but when I purchase top ups at Wal-Mart I buy the $90 cards and am charged no sales tax but VM takes the tax out.
    I don't like it that VM takes it out on their end I would rather pay the tax when I buy the card so I don't end up with a odd balance. I live in Illinois.
    I saw on here that if you buy from callingmart.com you do not get taxed at all is this true?
    Also is there any discount codes for callingmart I searched but all the codes were for other providers.

    Thanks

    Search callingmart, you'll find the 3% discount code, good on $25 cards. YOu can buy 3 or 4 and still get 3% on all. No tax... You get the code via email "instantly"... great way to go.

    Callingmart cards aren't taxed here in Texas. I've never seen anyone post on here that they were taxed for a Callingmart TopUp. Retailmenot.com is a good source for the current coupon code at callingmart.

    The way Illinois has been going I will probably have to pay the sales tax down the road they are making affiliates collect the tax if they have a presence in Illinois, I think Fat Wallet is moving out of IL. because of this.

    I have never been charged any taxes at all on my top-up card purchases from callingmart either. $25 applied to my Beyond Talk plan for $24.01 total.

    @ GIBBYTM:
    I've entered and used that code multiple times and it seems to works fine. :-D
    My toys:
    -Samsung Intercept with 8GB Micro SD card, loaded up with tons of GBA games (Fire Emblem FTW!).
    -Motorola RAZR V3m (Dark Pearl Gray) flashed to ViVo with COOL custom skins and all.
    -Motorola E815 flashed to Bell and loaded with 100s of Java games!
