Actually the dtac happy tourist card I get it because it has the 100thb worth of calls which comes in really handy.

BEWARE!!
Just had a bad experience with dishonest DTAC dealer in Platinum Mall.
For those looking to get the Happy Tourist 299 Sim, pls read and be informed.

Like many others who had googled on the various prepaid plans avail in Thailand, I decided on the Happy Tourist 299 which seem to give the best bang for my buck.

1st day in bkk, I headed for the DTAC dealer in Platinum Mall. Upon reaching the shop..
ME: Swdee Krap, Happy Tourist 299
SALESREP: (gently) Yes
..following which, she showed me a placard displaying 2 plans and pointed out one of which was 269Baht with 1 week unlimited internet.
ME: I want the 299Baht Happy Tourist
S/R: (gently) Yes, this is the plan. We do it for 269B only
..what a good deal I thought. Nothing to worry since it's an authorised dealer.
ME: Ok, I'll take it.
..went to counter paid 269B, no receipt issued. (Lesson learnt, always ask for receipt)
Salesrep plug the microsim into my iPad and tested. Data comin thru. Alrite job done.
when I got back to hotel, I plug the sim into my phone and check the prepaid balance then did I find out that I was given a Happy Tourist 49B plan + additional 199B Happy Internet (1 week unlimited)
Those 2 added up to only 248B so the salesrep had carrot me of 21B. Well, one will think it's a win-win situation right? WRONG!

The 299 Happy Tourist plan would have given me 1 week of unlimited internet without bandwidth throttle limit + free wifi(handy in case 3G fails).
But now, the 49 Happy Tourist only gives me 1 day unlimited 3G(no wifi), and the 199 Happy Internet (1wk Unlimited) only gives me 1gb of unthrottled bandwidth.

Dishonest salesrep !

Mine was marked up by 60thb. But still get what i want. not so bad.

Many dealer shops will either marked up the price or try to sell u different package. To play safe one should go the the main dtac center. Pantip plaza, central world and mbk i know have.
