Fill out a special reload form at a Western Union location, and then give the completed form, reload amount and any associated fees to the agent. Your minutes are available very soon after the agent processes your request.

You can buy prepaid cards at gas stations and large stores, such as Walmart. In its brick-and-mortar stores and at Walmart.com, where you can purchase e-cards, there are various denominations for such brands as Straight Talk, TracFone and AT&T Go Phone.
