Attention AT&T Prepaid and AT&T Prepaid prospective customers, this deal is for you. AT&T's $80 prepaid refill card is currently on sale at Walmart for $62.40.

In my area taxes and fees tack on an additional $6.66 making the total purchase price $69.06.
More About AT&T Prepaid And This Deal
If you want extra savings moving forward, you could purchase a couple of these cards to use at a later date. The refill cards will be sent to you by way of email.
The product image says that the refill card has a 90 day expiration date. I assume that means you have 90 days to add the refill card code to your account before it loses its value. A poster on SlickDeals where the deal was first publicized claims that they have held onto the cards for over 2 years in the past without having them expire.
A little over a year ago AT&T rebranded its prepaid brand from AT&T GoPhone to AT&T Prepaid. AT&T's prepaid card policy may have changed with that rebranding. Many other posters in the SlickDeals thread state that once the card is purchased you have 90 days to add it to your account before it expires. Once added to your account, the credit is valid for about one year. This is probably what is correct. There is a limit to the amount of discounted prepaid cards that you can buy per account order. A maximum of 2 cards are allowed per order.
