Skype Credit

2 Dec

Skype is giving away credits. W00t! I got this in my email today:

Hello ***********,

As a thank you for using Skype, we’d like to give you a little gift that can do a lot. We’re giving you some free Skype Credit so you can call worldwide to anyone you like, on their mobile or landline using Skype for up to 75 minutes* – for free.

It’s perfect for when you can’t make a free Skype to Skype call.

Start using your free Skype credit today by following these three simple steps.

1. Sign in to your account at

2. Copy the voucher code below:

3. Paste the code into the voucher box

And that’s it – happy calling.

For credit vouchers, the Skype Credit will be applied to your Skype account. *75 minutes is based on the Skype Global Rate of 2.3 cents per minute (US Dollars) to call landlines in 30 countries. See list here. If your Skype Credit balance is not maintained in US Dollars the amount of free credit will be converted to your chosen currency at the conversion rate seen in the currency exchange section on ‘My Account’. The actual number of minutes you can redeem with this offer may vary based on your calling destination and whether you call a landline or mobile phone. A connection fee may apply; see here. Offer expires December 31st, 2011.

Being the ever so suspicious me, I didn’t click on the link. Since I’m logged in to Skype anyways, I tried looking in the application where I could redeem vouchers. If you go to your account, and a new page will pop up and there’s a redeem voucher link at the lower part of the page.

Thank you Skype!

I wasn’t able to post anything yesterday because I had to go with my kid to his field trip. I salute all teachers! I don’t know how they do it. Seriously, just 10 minutes in a bus full of kids and I was already getting a migraine attack. It was a stressful and exhausting day, but it was fun. My kid had a blast! We went to Philippine Air Force Museum, Jose Rizal’s execution site in Luneta, Manila Cathedral, Mall of Asia for lunch, Manila Film Center, GSIS Museum, and Star City. The last leg of the trip felt like a workout lol! I was so tired I didn’t even bother having snacks when we got home. Anyway, I’ll post about these places later on. Ciao!
