Best Buy [bestbuy.com] has Cricket Wireless Refill Cards on sale 20% Off if purchased with Cricket phone or sim card.

Currently Cricket Sim Cards are $1 as listed on this Front Page deal.

This deal is not as good as 157 thumbs Front Page deal but it is comparable.

Using the deal above you could obtain a $70 Cricket Refill Card for $59.85 w/ Target Redcard.

This Best Buy deal will score you a $70 Cricket Refill Card for $62.81. With my 1.5% cash back, I ended up paying $61.87 per $70 card. This is including the $1 sim card.

This deal beats prior Cricket Wireless Refill Card deal last month where you ended up paying $63.18 per $70 card.

Before anyone goes and talks about the tax and prepaid service fees, below is the breakdown of the Best Buy deal.

Item Subtotal $56.99
Store Pickup FREE
Estimated Sales Tax $4.70
Prepaid 911 Service Fee $1.12

Total $62.81

Thanks!

Most people aren't cheap enough to return a $0.99 sim card.

No. You'll be fine. I had this same concern a while back too. These cards will give you an account balance on the cricket wireless website. Since you're signed up for autopay, it'll just deduct that same amount you've been paying. So if you're in the $40 plan with $5 autopay discount, you still have $35 deducted from your account balance.

Basically, buy these cards. You'll save money.

Why do they add sales tax and 911 fee? Cricket already includes fees and taxes in their price. So you're getting double charged at least on the 911 fee and maybe the sales tax as well. Target online orders don't charge these taxes and fees.

But if you buy in Target store they do charge sales taxes

because it's a physical gift card. it is pretty stupid that they don't have an egift version. At the very least it'd save them shipping costs.

no, you auto pay will pause until the credit(s) from these gift cards run out. When you are out of credits, your auto pay will take effect again. I'm pretty sure that the $5 discount stays too because your still signed up for the auto pay service, but you have credit on you account that'd apply first.

I think he was asking about the autopay credit... You do still receive that credit. Basically, you're still doing autopay, it's just that the payment is coming out if your account balance and then when that runs out, your payment will go back to coming off your credit card on file.
