    So, I'm all about Reward Zone Points. I've been a Premier Silver Member for the past two years. Now I'm an Elite Plus Member. Buying these refill cards for my phone bills is a great way to earn points without making unnecessary purchases to stay at the Elite Plus level. You must spend $3,500 in a calender year at Best Buy to retain Elite Plus status. Well, every month I spend $100 on phone cards. That's $1,200. so, instead of using my credit card to pay bill online, I buy a refill card, get points, and pay my bill the same way. Very easy. And whenever I want to purchase apps, music or movies from iTunes Store, I buy an iTunes gift card. So, I spend about $1,500, and get reward gift certificates, just by purchasing things I need. It's a great way to remain Elite Plus. You do not want to buy things just to stay in Elite Plus. You buy things you need and/or want. Since Best Buy changed the Reward Zone points tier, it's much harder to remain in Elite Plus. Spending $3,500 in one year is hard, especially if you do not have Elite Plus income. Spending almost $300/month @ Best Buy is very hard. To be in Elite Plus, you probably already have all the latest gadgets. So, what else do I really, truly need? I had to get creative. After buying the refill and gift cards, I'm left with $2,000 to spend. Now I'm down to about $165/month to spend @ Best Buy. Going to need a TV later this year. Elite Plus seems within reach, even though I really do not make enough money to retain Elite Plus status. Now Best Buy needs to offer gift cards to pay my cable bill.

    I had verizon wireless for about 10 years. Last couple years I would keep getting dropped calls around my house. I called verizon they said it was my problem and that I would have to buy a special antennae for approximately $200.00. Could not quite understand how it was my problem seeing as my reception was great for 8+ years. Began researching different phone plans and realized how much more I was paying for inadequate service. I was skeptic about switching to the Metro PCS family plan, so I went on a plan on my own. No problems with reception, so a month later added my wifes' phone and went on the family plan. She is always texting and sending pictures , myself I just use it as a phone. We are both pleased with Metro. Good service.

    Invalid Cards

    I bought (15) cards for my kids and their five cell phones. Each kids gets three cards for three months of usage from each cards that costs $40 per card. ALL (15) cards arrived "invalid" at my home. I spent several hours calling to get them reissued to me and I had to return the "invalid" cards to the distribution center. I received another shipment of (15) other cards that were also "invalid". They just stuck them in the package and sent them without activation...or so I thought. The representative said the cards could not be activated BEFORE they shipped to me. Really...and you all shipped the cards to me knowing that they were worthless!!! Now four days until Christmas...$600 of my hard earned cash is stuck in worthless cards that I can't get refunded.

    I recently purchased phones for a new account with MetroPCS since they have 4 lines for $100/month!! This saved me money of my last plan, much better service, unlimited data, no worrying about minutes since they are unlimited, and no cost texting. To get the account up and running, I purchased two of these cards to cover my first month of service. Now I can purchase these cards for my daughter who turned me on to MetroPCS. Although you have to enter a bunch of numbers to get the money onto your account, it really isn't any more complicated than making an online purchase. Very nice that all $50 goes toward your account...no service fees!

    !!!!!!!!!!Best way to pay your bill!!!!!!!!

    There are many ways to pay your MetroPCS phone bill. Out of the five different way to pay your bill. 3 of them charge a fee. You can pay with this phone card or by mail. I don't recommend paying by mail. The phone card is very easy to use. Even a dog can use this phone card. There are no confirmation numbers to write down. All you need is your phone number. Then you scratch off the activation number at the bottom of the card, like a lottery ticket. No taxes or fees, just 40$ a month. And no sales tax when you pay at the store. You can even use your reward zone card to build up points.

    MetroPCS phone card is very easy to use. Just make sure you no your phone number. After sending my payment in the mail. I had many problems many times. Some times Metro didn't cash the check on time. Or Metro credited someone else twice. I didn't feel like paying the 3$ fee that the Metro store charges. I ran into the payment card at Best Buy mobile section in the store. I thought it was a great idea. So I tired it.. Ever since then, I been using the MetroPCS payment card. Its safer and fee free. Plus I get to use my Reward Zone membership card. Its all a plus plus!

    Received gift card that is not activated

    I ordered Metro PCS gift card to pay my phone bill. When I tried to use to pay the bill, I found out that I can not use the card, because it is not activated. I called the phone number on the back of the card, and I was told that I had to go to the register to activate it. I went to Metro PCS, then to Best Buy store trying to activate it, but was told that they are not able to do it. I spent hours on the phone trying to talk to somebody at BestBuy.com, I am just being transferred from one department to another. Can somebody call me to resolve the issue?

    Charge Back

    Posted
    abc1988

    Bought one of these cards two days ago, along with a new phone at Best Buy. Paid for my NEW phone line with the card over the phone that same day. Today, I received a text that there is a "chargeback" on my account and $40.00 is due immediately. I no longer have the payment card. I threw it away thinking that my account was paid up and there was no problem. I now lost $40.00 and am forced to pay with another method of payment, or let my account close. LESSON LEARNED! Keep these cards after you use them, at least for the billing cycle.

    They don't e-mail this. Other that, it works.

    Unlike other retailers, who email you the card info, Best Buy does not, according to their representative, unless it states "instant entitlement" which I could not find on this product's description anywhere. I've bought it in-store previously though, and it was an easy alternative to paying Metro to make the payment in store. (You can use it to pay online or over the phone.) Just don't buy it online unless you have time to wait for snailmail!

    In contrast to metrics advertise claims that $40 PERIOD! This product charges sales tax. Instruction mentions about confirmation # will be provided after loading, which is must if you need to call customer service. no such number is provided after loading and you can not reach customer service if u want to verify funds

    I purchased 10 of these cards because they were on sale. NONE OF THEM ARE ACTIVATED. Best Buy sent me 10 replacement cards, but the replacement cards are NOT ACTIVATED either. Best Buy store cannot perform a refund because they don't sell these cards at the store. 800-Best-Buy basically told me that there is nothing I can do and that I need to discuss this with MetroPCS!!!

    I went to Best Buy to buy a couple Huawei Valiant phones and bought these along with them. I called the number to activate the phones, read off the sim card number, the numbers off the phone and the numbers off the card to the agent. Activated and service was paid for, couldnt be easier. Metropcs has quite a deal for $40 per month.

    Tried of paying the 5$ fee at the MetroPCS Store? Pay no more! Just walk into any Best Buy and pick up the MetroPCS payment card. No taxes or fees, if you buy this card online, you have to pay the tax. The payment card is easy to use. FYI, I also get reward zone points for paying my phone bill with this card:-) Jesus is the only way to Heaven!

    I manage my cell phones with pre-paid cards. They are easy, convenient and cost effective. Even though the phone company says it can take up to 2 hours to activate, I've never had to wait more than a minute or two to have the funds applied. I will NEVER go back to a contract for phone or internet, again.

    I love buying these cards from best buy because they are very simple to use. Just call the number on the back, enter phone number, enter pin and your done! Beats paying at a metro store and having to pay $3 fee! Also earn bestbuy rewards points so double benefit!

    The review is for the payment card, not the phone, but the questions were about the phone. Anyway, the payment card does what it is supposed to do and it is easy to use. The price is excellent for what you get.

    Purchased these many times online in the past and they are great. Now, however, they are charging tax on them. Never paid tax on phone cards anywhere before. Won't be buying them here again.

    This recharge card is easy to re-fill your Metro PCS account. You can get best buy points for it as well which can be used later for any purchases at best buy. I gave only 4 stars because this product is not available online some times.

    I love the fact that I can purchase these cards at my local Best Buy store! I do not have to provide my credit card information to reload and I get rewards points also!!! The best of both worlds!

    Great, but buy in store to avoid sales tax

    When purchased in store there is no sales tax (I know this is considered a service and Michigan at least doesn't charge sales tax for services...) I wish Best Buy would fix this with all the cards :(
