Hi guys,

I believe I found the solution. I found a website that sells digital Esso gift codes which should be the same as the ones PayTM gave. And on the site I found it said this.

Gift Cards are compatible with the Esso Speedpass+™ App, allowing you to reload your account and pay at the pump with ease!

How do you use the Starbucks card?
Just added it as a new card in my Starbucks app. Then joined the cards.

Very few people go through the trouble of using a data-only plan to run a VOIP app on their phone as their PRIMARY line
I did say up front that the majority of people use conventional phone lines. Which diminishes the importance of VOIP not one bit. No one familiar with the VOIP market denies that millions of people use VOIP on an ongoing basis. And that usage is in many cases their primary service. Accurate numbers are hard to come by and VOIP usage is commonly under reported. A Google search shows that current estimates of individual VOIP users range from various sources is reported as between 100 Million and 1+ Billion users.

The vendor here is just denying access to all VOIP users because that is a simple, sledgehammer approach to routing out a small percentage of abusers. So they just concentrate on the majority of people traditional telcom service.

You say that "very few" people set up a data-only plan to run VOIP. But we only have to look on this site to see that just one such data only plan thread on RFD has a score of +236 and runs 447 pages. And a lot of people in that thread state that they are using it for VOIP as well as data per se.

It seems that a lot more people use VOIP than you imagine. You can dismiss it as "very few people" but a minority in the hundred(s) of millions is still a lot of users. And no small number of people arbitrarily excluded from the offer here.

PayTM also excludes conventional landlines (POTS) because they can't receive texts. More reputable organizations have a silicon Sally to give people on landlines the verification code verbally.

I suspect there are far more people being excluded because they're on landlines than because they're on VoIP.

That said, perhaps PayTM's exclusion makes some sense since you can't use their app on a landline. But you could use it on a tablet or smartphone that's only on WiFi, etc. Most homes, stores, shopping centers, etc. do have WiFi.

Those of us on this type of plan necessarily have a cell number associated with our SIMs. In the case of Fido that number can receive texts for free and works fine with PayTM's offer. [I have $10 to prove it ;) ] The problem some of these folks face is that they've requested Fido to block calling and texting on their line, thus precluding their participation in PayTM's offer. That's not a failing in the data plan. They painted themselves into that corner.

I don’t quite understand the rewards layout. For example, under the Amazon best value option, it says $480 for 1500 points with $500 scratched out. I’m looking at that as if we can redeem 1500 points for a $480 gift card which I doubt is correct. When I go to redeem that option, it allows me to proceed to checkout too. Can someone clarify plz? Thanks.

For 1500 points combined with 480$ from your pocket. You get a 500$ gift card

What they are saying is for 1500 points + $480 cash, you get a $500 Amazon gift card. 1500 points are usually good for $15 gift cards so with this offer you are getting $20 for 1500 points (plus you have to pay $480 out of pocket).
