Digi Best (RM$8 starter pack)

[Shop sales person in Bukit Indah says need to top up RM$30 upon buying, so upfront is RM$38]

I only need data, minimal call except for emergency use.
I am on Starhub Happy prepaid, where i buy e 1GB data for $5 when i go in.
Usually shared among 4 pax, 3 of them minimal whatsapp, facebook, but i play game.

I had an internet data counter app that shows how much data passes thru wifi/3G on the tethering phone. And usually when it hits 250MB on my counter, Starhub has alr said that my 1GB has been used up...WTF.

So i am thinking of getting a Malaysian prepaid card as i go in once or twice a month and may need more than 1GB of data (since 1GB is always not enough, which i dont understand). Seems like 3RM for 1GB is best deal for day pass. Is there cheaper than 3RM for 1GB within the apps coz i saw some online exclusive deals within the app on some pics shared in this thread. I am thinking of Digi, Umobile or hotlink.

A few questions:
Does the top-up 1RM in the last few days of grace/inactive period works for all the telcos prepaid? or only Digi?
What r e inactive/grace period of hotlink/Umobile? 60 days for Umobile and 50 days for hotlink.
Digi is 75 days for best, if i saw correctly on someone's post.
