    Simple Mobile Charges Sales Taxes for Recurring Credit Card Payments

    Just found out when they charged my credit card, instead of the normal $50 for 30 days for UNLIMITED Blackberry Plan, I was hit up for $50 + $5.10 in sales tax!

    Called SM Cust. Service and was told as of like 1/9/13, they tack on a sales tax for recurring credit card payments!!!

    Looks like I'll have to use the PIN method to re-up each month to avoid this sales tax! Gonna have to buy these re-up cards with a PIN to up each month. What a pain!

    Best Buy is one of the places that sell the ReUp cards. There are others that you can also buy online.

    Has anyone been charged the sales tax for automatic re-ups in NY?

    I got tmobile about two weeks ago and I was planning on doing the automatic re-ups w them...guess not??? But is there anyother convenient method of re-upping other than getting a pin and re-upping it at the last day?
    Can we buy couple of pins from online and store them in the simple mobile online account?

    it does charge sales tax for people from no sales tax state

    I also felt strange because I am from New Hampshire. Usually there is no sales tax when I purchase everything here, even a car. But Simple Mobile did charge me 1 dollar something for $25 recharge.

    I purchased recharge from callingmart online a couple of times. There was no sales tax with 3% off to get pin, sometimes 5% off. It's inconvenient but I could save some money,

    I just used "callingmart.com" and up for $50 for only $47.50. No Sales Tax! (Used coupon code: MLK125 at checkout).

    This is awesome!

    This is the way to go! Linking to a credit card for monthly recurring charges makes no sense and cost more. Plus now I can use my AMEX card to buy the re-ups. Simple Mobile did not accept AMEX.

    Too much BS with Simple and taxes now. Just use the re-up cards and you'll save like $60 in a year.
