Refill Egift Card Expiration


    When does a refill Ecard expire? 


    i purchased a 10.00 Egift refill card online from Walmart as a test and applied to my balance.  I would like to purchase 3-4 $80.00 refill cards for my prepaid $75.00 account and hold on to them for a few years and use when need.  Or maybe give them away in the future as gifts.


    I believe there is a 90 day expiration, but does that start when I originally purchase the card  online from Walmart?  Or when I apply the pin number to my Tmobile account and redem the card? 




    This from Walmart:

    Redemption Instruction have changed. Please follow the instruction below.

    To redeem this pin:

    1. Dial 1-800-385-1977 from your mobile phone or from any phone.
    2. Enter the pin number when prompted.

    Unused minutes expire 90 days after re-demption

        Good question. Since the minutes aren't on your account until after you redeem the card, the 90 day expiration window wouldn't start until after you activated.

            So, are you saying the E refill card can be kept indefinitely before activating?  I googled it and, couldn't get any info on this matter.  I only need it to hang around for a few weeks since, I reup on my birthday (in order to remember each year) and, today is cyber Monday November 26th and Target has a bit of a deal for today only.

            Thanks for your help
