Master List of Reputable Discounted Prepaid Airtime Vendors

Prepaid airtime cards
Prepaid is about saving money and not being locked down to one provider. Prepaid plans are typically less expensive than comparable postpaid ones. You can save even more by purchasing prepaid airtime at a discount. Here's a roundup of currently available refill airtime discounts.

CallingMart.com. One of the oldest and best known online airtime sellers, CallingMart sells airtime for over twenty operators. CallingMart's everyday prices include a 1% to 5% discount on purchases over $18 for some providers including Airvoice, H2O, Verizon and GoPhone. The code CA3P-1207 provides an additional 3% off the same operators.

Almost every month, CallingMart has a sale that lasts for a week or two that offers 10% off AT&T GoPhone; 5% Off Verizon, H20 and Airvoice; and 3% off Red Pocket airtime. The sales are usually holiday themed and occur around a holiday.

Last year TracFone increased its wholesale prices on airtime for all the TracFone brands including TracFone, NET10, Simple Mobile, Telcel America and Page Plus. Most online vendors no longer offer discounts on airtime for the TracFone brands and some, including CallingMart, charge a fee, 2% in CallingMart's case, on TracFone brand airtime.

Megasaver.com is one vendor that still discounts Page Plus airtime. Use the promo code 5off for a 5% discount on Page Plus. This is a limited time offer with no set expiration date. H2O refills are also 5% off at Megasaver

PrepaidRefill.com, which is associated with Megasaver,  is currently offering discounts of 3% to 4% on Page Plus, H2O and easyGo airtime.

PinCheap.com sells airtime for most operators and offers discounts on many. Currently discounts range from 0.5% on TracFone and Page Plus to 10% on AT&T GoPhone.

All the vendors listed above do not collect taxes on airtime. However, in most states your are still liable for uncollected taxes on online purchases and are supposed to report and pay them on your state income tax return.

Target.com and Target Stores have frequent week long 5% off sales on prepaid airtime. If you purchase using a Target Red Card you get an additional 5% off. There's a current online-only sale that ends today. Target only offers T-Mobile, Boost, Verizon, GoPhone, Verizon Prepaid, Sprint Prepaid and Cricket airtime online. The same brands and many more, including TracFone, Virgin Mobile, Simple Mobile, Ultra Mobile, Univision, H2O and Virgin Mobile are available in store. Target collects all applicable state and local taxes both online and in store.

You can also find discounted airtime on eBay but I do not recommend it unless the seller is an actual mobile operator like TracFone or Red Pocket or a national retailer like Best Buy.  There have been multiple recent cases of eBay vendors selling airtime purchased using stolen credit cards or other fraudulent means. Innocent users have had lost money and/or had their service cut off after using eBay purchased airtime that was later identified as connected with illegal activities.

I'd like to make this post the go to resource for finding prepaid airtime deals. If you know of a reputable source of discounted airtime that's not listed above please mention it in a comment and I will add it to this post.

  2. Target purchases are usually subject to the local sales tax. In some areas that can be as much as 10% or more!

    1. Ultra is based in California, they are required to collect CA MTS tax, which varies from 5.9% to 19.7 depending on locality, from CA residebts

    2. Ultra's $19 plan is now $24.32 for California residents(incl Tax) however, I use a 406 area code (Montana) and no sales tax.

    1. airtimeclub.com doesn't appear to be a secure (https://) site. I don't recommend entering payment information on a non-https site.

    2. Payment is processed on the PayPal website. I trust PayPal over almost any other site.

  5. I use Callingmart for purchasing several diffrent carrier brand refills. Callingmart has a price match policy. I have used it several times purchasing Pageplus refills without issue. Still earn points on those purchases too.

    1. "Lowest Prices Guaranteed
      CallingMart guarantees the lowest price of wireless refill PINs online. CallingMart will match any lower price from a reputable competitor website for up to 7 days from the order date. The lower priced item must be available for purchase and should be an exact item match of the purchased product from us in terms of product refill value and plan, delivery method of PIN or minutes, delivery lead time, and payment method. Marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon, Bonanza and other similar sites where prices are dictated by individual sellers and not by standard reseller pricing are not eligible. This offer does not apply to International Top-ups due to the price differences driven by the foreign currency exchange. To avail of this offer, please send an email to customerservice@callingmart.com with the order number and the page link of the lower priced item and a refund for the difference will be issued upon price and listing verification."

    2. Another Thumbs-up for Callingmart - purchased multiple times at discounted price

  6. I live in a state with no sales tax (Alaska), and run a 5 line Cricket Group Save plan. Can I get 10 % off by using a Target Red Card (-5%), added to Target prepaid airtime cards (-5%)? That would make a great deal even better!

    1. Yes you can stack the 5% PIN discount and the 5% Red Card discount for a total savings of 9.75%.

  7. www.epinrefill.com

    Sells NET10 monthly plans for prices that vary from a nickel less than face value to $1 more than face value. No taxes or fees.

  8. "Target collects all applicable state and local taxes both online and in store."

    Dennis, this doesn't seem to be true in California? I think even you and or/Christine have mentioned this.

    1. I don't recall ever saying that but if I did I was wrong.
      I bought a airtime card at Target Jan 2 and was charged California MTS tax. As retailer operating in California, Target doesn't really have any choice, they are required to collect California taxes for purchases made in California or online by California residents.

      Delete
    2. My mistake.

      I'm also in California and haven't had to pay MTS on online refill purchases at Target. There are posts on Slickdeals saying you don't have to pay them at Target B&M either, but I find that hard to believe.

      Delete
    3. I think there might have been a glitch last month were Target wasn't collecting MTS, even in stores. I bought one refill at a CA Target store in December and no MTS was charged but this month it was.

      Delete
    4. Try an online order (email delivery.) I just went through the checkout process until I had to hit submit, and it did not show any MTS being added.

      Delete
    5. I just tried it and you're right.

  9. How does one get notice of a Callingmart sale? Do they send emails to account holders?

    ReplyDelete

    1. They sometimes send emails but they very consistent about it.

      The best way is probablt to use a free web page change detection service like visualping.io to monitor http://marketing.callingmart.com/promo/

      Or just check that page or CallingMart's Facebook page daily.

      Delete
    2. Callingmart emails re promo codes are pretty consistent for me.

    3. Email arrived

  10. Check https://www.ezlipa.com/ they offer up to 10% discounts. I checked with them and they seem to have most networks except Sprint and it's MVNOs'. They 10% discount was for ATT

    1. No sale!

      Not a chance I am going to enter my phone number to see prices. Show me the carriers refill prices first so I can decide if I'm interested, IF I am ready to buy and load to phone is the only option then I can decide whether to proceed and enter my # or not.

      Delete
    2. I agree, asking for your number first is questionable. The ezlipa dot com domain is barely a year old and doesn't seem to linked to or recommended by any reputable sites. Not confidence inspiring.

  11. Dennis, you should include www.Moosewireless.com The have discounts for pretty much all prepaid carriers. At&t Gophone refills get a 12.7% discount on the $100 refill when you use the reoccurring SWATT coupon code.
