Compare the Mobile Prepaid Top Up Validity

When I find out the information and do the comparison, my head was becoming bigger and bigger when I look at the hotlink official website. Their design are so complicated and like a maze, the search engine also useless, no result found for any search term. @@

It’s quite difficult to put all in a chart, due to different reload methods and amounts, the validity will be different. But I’m trying to make it easy for you to understand it.

Telcos Reload Amount Validity
Celcom RM 3 – RM 9 3 Days
RM 10 – RM 19 7 Days
RM 20 – RM 29 15 Days
RM 30 and above RM 1 = 1 Day
DiGi RM 5 – RM 99 RM 1 = 1 Day
RM 100 120 Days
Happy Any Amount (minimum RM 5) 60 Days
Hotlink vary ??
*Special thanks to kellaong,
refer to his comment
RM 3 5 days
RM 5 5 days
RM 10 10 days
TuneTalk RM 3 – RM 5 RM 1 = 1 Day
RM 10 11 Days
RM 20 22 Days
RM 30 50 Days
RM 50 75 Days
RM 100 150 Days
RM 200 270 Days
RM 300 365 Days
RM 500 548 Days
RM 1000 730 Days
U Mobile Any Amount RM 1 = 3 Days
XOX XinXun Any Amount RM 1 = 1 Day*

* Only XOX XinXun top up validity can be accumulated up to total 368 days. Other telcos validity are based on the newer expired date.

U Mobile validity is the best one among the others, where you can enjoy 3 times extra validity, while Celcom reload amount below RM 30 is the shortest. For TuneTalk subscribers, we recommend you to reload RM 30, because the validity is the longest compare to other amounts.

Grace Period

Operators Grace Period
Celcom Xpax 50 Days
DiGi Easy Prepaid
DiGi Best Prepaid
90 Days
Happy Prepaid ??
Hotlink Bagus 5 Prepaid 90 Days*
TuneTalk Mobile Prepaid 45 Days
U Prepaid 100 Days
XOX XinXun Prepaid 60 Days

* Hotlink subscribers unused credit in grace period will be remain in your account for the first 30 days, then it will be forfeited on the day 31 of grace period. Other operators subscribers credit will be remain along the whole grace period. All operators are forfeited your balance after grace period. (Special thanks to ST for providing the official statement from Maxis. Please refer to his comment for more information.)

U Prepaid grace period is the longest one while TuneTalk Mobile Prepaid grace period is the shortest among telcos.

Please do let us know if you found the top up validity information on Hotlink official website and show us the url in the comment box below this article.

    Hi there, first of all I enjoy reading your blog and I will continue read πŸ™‚

    With regards to your post on mobile topup validity you noted with * that hotlink topup balance will be forfeited on the 31st day onwards in the grace period, I asked in Maxis forum and the staff replied it will not be forfeited unless account is deactivated at the 91st day. Now I'm confused if the staff is not fully aware of it or you might have been provided with inaccurate resources.

    Here's the link to the forum –

      Hi ST,

      Thank you for helping us to correcting the mistake.

      First of all, I have to explain it to you on how we gather the information as well as ensuring the accuracy. We firstly refer to the official website, then try go google the official website if there is any missing part and finally we called to official operator to get the information.

      We will no go further step if we found the info on the first step. For your information, we found the info here (

      Look at the first 30 days grace period (deactivate with balance), and next 60 days grace period (deactivate without balance). So we assume it is forfeited.

      Since you have the official answer from Maxis, we have corrected our statement and we appreciate your help to make us better.

      Thank you.

    Hi RMValues,

    From the link you have given me, it totally makes sense why you would think that the credit will be forfeited on 31st day in the grace period. I would have thought so myself. I have clarified further with the staff in the forum and they said the link was meant for old plan, not Bagus plan…lesson learnt, never fully BELIEVE hotlink website unless it specifically mention that it is applicable for 'whatever plan'.

      Hi ST,

      That's why I also mention in the post that Hotlink website is like a maze, really lack of accurate information as well as confusing. But I'll still try to get the correct information before publish it.
