So the answer to the previous question would be, NO. You can't pay a 'contract' plan bill with a prepaid card.

There's a lot of confusion in this thread about T-Mobile balance expirations. If you have a Monthly Prepaid account that deducts a certain amount, like $30, from your account balance every month, you don't have to worry about your balance expiring. Every month when your account is charged, it will extend the expiration date for your funds 90 days. If you want to verify this for yourself, put in a couple of month's worth into your balance and use the T-Mobile app and note the date it says in the "Use By" section. Then, after your account gets charged the next month, you'll see the the "Use By" date has moved back a month, despite you not having added funds to the account.

The 90 day expiration is used for Pay As You Go accounts where you add an amount of money and pay for minutes and texts. Basically once you added say $10 to your account, you had 90 days to use it or lose it. However, if you added more money to your account before the 90 days were up, it'd extend the expiration of the existing funds. With the Monthly Prepaid plans, you're being charged every month, so your expiration date is always being extended.

That being said, I wouldn't add a bunch of cards to my account. You never know when there will be a great deal from another carrier or maybe you'll want to convert to a family plan or something. You don't want to end up losing the money in your account or having to stay with T-Mobile just to use up your balance.



Yes, I buy a bunch of them at a time and just keep them in a folder in my email. When it's time to use them, I click on the link on the email and go to the Target site and retrieve my code. I enter it into my T-Mobile account and delete the email from Target. I recently used a card that I bought in February. Their gift card center site can be finicky though so I'd recommend getting all the codes after they're sent and putting them in a text file or in a draft message in your email account so you'll have them available as needed.

Yes. That's always how I pay mine. But it has to be prepaid.

Depends on the state and sometimes even city. But if your local Best Buy charges sales tax, then your local Target does too. I'm in California and if I buy online and get an emailed code (as opposed to a physical card mailed to me), then I don't pay tax.

Because there is 11 day that people would have buy those for full price, and now that they know about it they will wait to buy it in 11 days.
