I had been getting mine at 30% off.

How do some of these people make money like this?

Is there something fishy going on here?

I do not wait till the last minute to buy my refill. If I see it, I get it, but I dont want to have few hundreds balance on T-mobile.

I just figure opportunity once gone doesnt come back. :-)

I see.

I wonder if T-mobile ever recall or get a balance out if it turn out to be fraud.

Does T-mobile sell at least 30% discount to some merchant?

if it was bought with a stolen credit card they take it away from you its up to you to get your money back from where you got it from . also tmo does do promotions where they offer it for less but only to merchants

I did get a $35 for $50 but had to wait 18 hours.

I got a $70 for $100 yesterday and have to wait about 18 hours also.

I say its a pretty good deal man. I hope these deals last forever.

30% discount is steep. Plus all the transaction and junk fees that seller have to eat. Where is the profit margin?

What am I complaining? Nothing. :-)

I see some of the sellers are selling it from outside USA.

If you can get a $100 for $50?

I am doing some more investigation.

Yeah I'm puzzled as to how they buy so low and still sell pretty low.

hmm, good question better question do you look into it and decide to skip it or do you buy and not worry about it.
I would say if you buy with paypal if it does turn out to be a scam and your money is lost paypal usually refunds you.

EBAY shoppers,

This quick guide is to make you aware of many fradulent prepaid refill card offers that are increasingly available on EBAY.

You may see a classified ad, or an auction, offering a T-mobile, Boost Mobile, etc. refill cards for almost 50% of the face value.

Do NOT buy these refills. These sellers (usually not in USA) buy airtime with stolen credit cards and re-sell it on EBAY.


This can happen to you:

After you complete your purchase, you WILL receive a refill confirmation from your cell phone provider, so it will appear as all is well. You've got your refill for an awesome price, you left positive feedback, life is good.. NOT!

Several months later, you will receive a call from your cell company, telling you that you owe them whatever the face value of your refill was, plus tax. This is because the charge on the stolen credit card gets reversed by its legitimate owner, and now YOU owe the full amount to your service provider. When they learn that the credit card used for the refill was stolen, your prepaid account will be suspended, and the purchase will be reported to the authorities.

You will then need to go to the local police office, filie a police report, turn in your receipts from E-bay and Paypal for the transactions to the police, and contact E-bay's and Paypal's fraud departments, to clear your name with the service provider, Ebay, and Paypal.

Red flags to look for:

1) The seller requires for you to provide your cell phone number with your payment (NEVER, ever, give out your cell phone number, when buyng a refill on EBAY.)

2) It is a classified ad, or an auction that contains a link to another web site (the "onlinekey.org" is one of them.)

3) The price is TOO LOW to be true.

4) Broken English in the auction/ad description. (this is usually because the seller does not even speak English because he/she is in China or elsewhere, and used online "language translator" to convert description of the ad into English.)


Below is one such seller:

Ebay Seller: huangke050828 from China
with email - emorycode@gmail.com
Website: www.onlinekey.org

Yah man, I am confused myself now after reading your chat with tmo.

I did some more research yesterday that if you buy from the reseller that might have this fishy discount, your refill will not work anymore.

I dont know why this this.

The part I read above from ebay says that Tmo will come after you for that money many mths later when the consumer found out later.

Tmo is cutting down on discount to reseller. 30% off is unbelievable!

ive been using ebay for most of my refills hopefully everything is ok i think for the most part if your buying directly from a USA buyer the waters a little less murky also do what i do once you pay check the email make sure they are verified if they are not just open up a dispute with paypal immediately

I see 83 for 100 now. This seller is Buy It now, not Classified Ad and has 1100+ feedback and ebay protection eligible.

Even thought Callingmart say Tmo have no more discount, I dont know how these sellers can get at least 17% discount and that $70 plan becomes $53 now. You see what I see?

New sellers selling $50 and $100 refill today. All Buy Now, which is safe than Classified Ad.

I find one that is cheaper to buy two $50 vs one $100.

Happy savings. I like saving this type of money! Why would u want to do contract and pay more.

I've bought these refill cards for some time now. I have even bought a few and resold them on eBay for an few extra bucks. I've been saving on my bill this way since before monthly 4g was introduce back in the flexpay days. Currently I get a 100$ for less then 68$. I've never had a problem and yes with a refill card, they cannot "snatch" the refill amount back.

Nice. They have them back in stock. I've been using this since last fall.

I have to jump on this before they sell out again.

Saw a "Buy it now" for $39 plus .78 ebay bucks. Thats 20%+ saving clip.

I use common sense. Buy It Now is save VS Classifed Ads. This seller also sells other cards beside Tmo. And you can leave comments with Buy It Now.

Go for it boyz.

Don't these expire after 90 days? Can I have more than three months of credit in my account?

Nice, they have that one. But, the $40 for $50 pin is a better deal. Almost 2 months on my $30 100 min/unl text/unl data (5GB).

So 20% off is the norm.

Why did CallingMart says they are loosing the discount and cant do it anymore?

Here is this seller that has 1000+ feedback and he explains why he is able to sell the card at such a big discount:

================

On a side note we receive a lot of messages and questions on how are we able to provide refill cards for such a low price.
The answer is simple, we purchase large amounts of T-mobile smart phones on the carriers main website and unlock them to resell them in our country, most of these phones come with a 50$ refill card coupon to start up the service, and since we cannot sell these coupons in our country, we put them up for sale on ebay.

================

There you have it. I do know electronics, cars and buffets(lots of food, hence obesity) are cheaper in USA than anywhere else in the world. EXCEPT for health care which costs alot here.

There you have it. Enjoy hunting.

Yes you can, in the USA you may not be able to but in other countries with other laws you can.

Sellers are disappearing and Callingmart offers no discount anymore. I can even visited websites that I use to buy from. They are no longer selling OR they charge Higher then Face Value for the card

I did manage to get it at $40 (for $50 value) about 2 weeks ago from 2 diff sellers. You just have to keep on looking everyday and within every hour.

As good as its gonna get.

Callingmart says Tmobile cut down on their profit and yet this site can do it.

I don't think there is a good legit answer on the truth.
