Can we get back on topic - discounts on top up cards? Thanks!
Do good. Be kind. Have fun.
I've used Walmart for VM top-ups. They don't charge tax, and give a few cents discount. Lots of the other sites I've used started surcharges on VM, so that's the best deal I've found. But you have to be careful with Walmart or they will reject your purchase and cancel your order - although they email you your pin number, as a security measure, your billing address/paypal address has to match the address you have on your Walmart online account.
I have been lurking for some time here but never had a reason to register and post until now. It seems I have done something rash and ordered this: item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=16575521985
165 Yuan turns out to be(from my online credit card transaction summary):
ALIPAY TAOBAO.COM - HANGZHOU , CN Pending -27.86 US
It was a PITA getting an Alipay account and adding money to it but I finally did it and ordered 1 "card". Not sure what happens now so I will post later with the results. I have heard that Alipay is good about refunds so if this is a scam then I will use the "Refund" button and see what happens.
Perhaps Alipay has improved. I used it and was disappointed by it. They used to "credit" the account. I couldn't withdraw it. I could only apply on future purchases. If I am not mistaken, Taobao, Alipay are part of Alibaba. There were many scams on Alibaba, Aliexpress over a year ago. While they've cut down on the scams, they still happen.
Honestly, I am even afraid of crazygametime.com and its severe discount. It just sound too good to be true. However, at least crazygametime.com is "one individual" and not millions of unknown merchant gathering together.
I've yet to hear VM , Boost shut down your account due to fraudulent code. I did hear Tmobile would shut your down if you enter a fraudulent code.
Results of ordering this: item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=16575521985:
Seems that this is a physical card and not a VM code. I had instructions to email the VM code to me but I guess they don't speak English and mailed the card to the fake address I put in my alipay account. From what I can tell, there is no way to enter a US address in aliplay or taobao but it's all Chinese to me ;-)
They don't charge tax at all? So, if I buy a Virgin Mobile top-up card worth $40, they will charge me only $40 and I can top-up $40 on my account at VM?
As mentioned in the deals thread below, Target will have airtime for 10% off on 2/24. That is in addition to the 5% off for using a red card.
Right on, 44.99 for two months paylo service, thanks for the heads up!
I used this today: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Virgin-Mobil...item460da1a082
I received $60 to my VM account in less than 5 min.
Here is another one but his ratings are non-existent: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Virgin-Mobil...item4ac1fd4b0d
I have had no problems so far with these kinds of Ebay classified ads but buyer beware. My last $60 refill cost me $37 no tax but that deal is long gone.
Hey guys i have some extra 60$ Pins available if anyone wants to purchase.
Going rate at the moment is ~$42.
I can do Paypal/Ebay.
