    True but they were originally made for paygo before the monthly plans were created. I used them back when they had 10 cents a minute.

    Since I asked the original question, here's how I understand it based on the replies. You add the card $ to your account, not directly to a plan purchase. You then have 90 days to use those $'s as you choose. Apply it with a separate transaction to a monthly plan, add on data, or whatever else ATT offers. As mentioned, just don't have more $ in your kitty then you can use up in 90 days. It appears some are thinking the cards are directly used to buy a plan like some actual plan cards you see for MVNOs. Am I wrong ?

    You are not wrong. These cards are pretty much a cash balance in your account to be used for any purpose. For example when it is time to renew cost of your current monthly plan will be deducted from it.
