    I was just looking for another way to refill monthly Since callingmart stopped selling refill PIN cards. KeepCalling.com (click Mobile Recharge) has them at 5% off face value without taxes (23.75 for $25, 33.25 for $35), instant email PIN, has a reward system, & accepts paypal for security.

    My referral code: 32nhkx (You get some reward points too).

    I'd be interested to hear if you know of a better price somewhere else. This thread could be used to keep track of the latest deals.

    Sometimes i know dollar stores will carry top-up cards so i always look into those types of places when i go. Also did you know about registering a cc on file?

    Used your referral code to create an account. Hope the bonus points make a nice albeit late anonymous Christmas gift from me. Going for the 5% off deal, figured I might as well top off for the rest of the semester, haha! :D



    ETA: That was fast. Got a call from them, confirmed my order and info, and now I've gotten instructions on how to top up. I've saved $4.48 on about 4 month's worth of topping up as I'd already bought $50 worth of top-ups from CallingMart (another place I'd recommend, look for discount codes while you're at it!). If I'm feeling bored, I might top up for more months, haha.

    Calling Mart doesn't carry Virgin Mobile PINs any longer.

    I just went tonight on the off-chance they'd started carrying them again and they have cards in the new denominations with a 1% discount.

    And the coupon code ca3p-1207 also still works for 3% off.

    I used this new place, keepcalling last night and probably will not again. Their cart is horrible and their link to refills is buried. Now that calling mart has VM USA again I will be going back there.

    I only used keepcalling because I need a small top-up until payday (wife's account had $18 on it) and callingmart only has $35, $45 and $55 cards now.

    They must have added them back to their line up. Cool, thank you.

    No, according to CallingMart's official statement:

    Code (Text):

    2. -------- Original Message --------
    3. Subject:     Virgin Discounts Discontinuation
    4. Date:     15 May 2012 16:41:29 -0400
    5. From:     pins@callingmart.com

    8. Our Dear Customer,
    9.  
    10. We would like to thank you for your continued business
    11. with us!
    12.  
    13. We are sending you this email to inform you that there
    14. will be price changes with Virgin Mobile refill products.
    15. Effective June 1, 2012, Virgin Mobile will reduce their
    16. discounts to all resellers to the level that it would
    17. not be profitable anymore if we sell their products at
    18. any discounted prices. Given this, please be advised
    19. that the "ca3p-1207" coupon code will no longer apply
    20. to all Virgin Mobile Refills after May 30, 2012.
    21.  
    22. Even though it may not be worth it any more for us to
    23. sell it even at non-discounted price, we will continue
    24. to provide this product for your convenience and save
    25. you at least on sales tax versus if you get it from a
    26. retail store (We will do our best to still offer you
    27. Loyalty Reward Points for every purchase but this is
    28. not finalized yet at this time).
    29.  
    30. Thank you again for your business and we hope you will
    31. always find callingmart as the most convenient place
    32. to get your wireless refills and other telecom needs.
    33.  
    34. Sincerely,
    35. callingmart Customer Service
    36.

    If you buy it tax free online from callingmart.com or one of the other retailers yes, $45 is all you will pay.

    How does it work with the cards? I don't actually want to coordinate buying the PINs and enter them in every month at the renewal date. Can I buy say $100 to $200 worth, load them up in my VM account, and then have VM deduct $35 on a monthly basis?

    If I do that would I avoid paying the e911 charge my state charges my through VM and the 7% sales tax, at the risk I lose my balance if I switch out of VM?

    The largest card you can purchase from callingmart.com is $60. If you purchase more than one card in a month there is a delay (to ensure you're not a resaler buying bulk from them).

    You can add as much as you want to your VM account, they deduct a month from your balance each time there is enough to make a month's payment (I am currently paid up for the next 2 months).

    WOW!!! I emailed this company and just called them to try and see what I would get when buying "X" amount of top-up from them and they could not tell me! So it sounds like it could be a great deal, but no one at this company will say what it is I would be paying for! :-(

    Virgin Mobile doesn't give discounts to resellers for their cards any longer. From what Callingmart has said, with the 1% discount they give they're barely breaking even.

    I have noticed that the grocery store I used to by my VMU cards before CM.com has stopped carrying them.
