What Is an Airtime card?
With cell service being available in increasingly more rural and remote areas now, many people are cancelling their landlines and using cellphones for all calling. Airtime cards help consumers choose how they pay for cell services.
An airtime card is a small plastic or cardstock card that is sold in many department and convenience stores. When the card is purchased and the back is scratched off, a short code is revealed. Entering that code into a cellphone that’s set up to use the particular airtime card allows you to make calls, surf the Internet or send text messages, according to Net10. Each card has a set price and offers a specific amount of mobile usage.
Many cellular services that use airtime cards charge more per minute than those with monthly plans. Some services charge a very small daily fee for each day that the phone is used, even if only for a few minutes, according to 20Something Finance. These daily fees quickly use up the balance of a prepaid card. Buying a prepaid airtime card with a higher price tag tends to save you money per minute of call time.
A monthly cellular plan is the most common alternative to using prepaid airtime cards, but it’s not the only one. Cellphone users who like electronic voucher distribution system but who find going to the store to purchase another card a waste of time may enjoy a service that involves connecting a debit or credit card. Prepaid airtime top-up services allow you to connect a payment source through a Point of Sale terminal at the reseller’s or merchant’s store, then buy minute packages directly from your phone.
