Pay for $300 Att prepaid plan with prepaid cards

I was given ATT prepaid cards, $300 worth. I wanted to sign up for the $300 annual plan that is prepaid. When you go through the online setup, there is no way to pay with the pre-paid cards. It only takes credit cards. 

Anyone know how to get around this? I also want to port over another number so would be bringing over 2 lines. 

When I call the prepaid customer service number, you can't talk to anyone without an account. 

No one answers on the FB Messenger.

When I call the post paid line, they have no clue about pre-paid and always tell me to call the prepaid line, but no one answers as I mentioned above. 

When I went to the ATT store, no one there had a clue. 

I have tried every angle to get simple questions answered from ATT to sign up but am stuck.

I’m pretty sure there is no way around it. The $300 plan is online only and there is no way to purchase online using prepaid cards.
