Exclusive news: Existing Skype customers can make unlimited calls to mobile phones and landline numbers for free.
Crazy offer here, guys! And I don’t want you to miss this. Skype has silently launched an international offer (you saw it first here) where anyone can make calls to any mobile phones (restricted to seven countries) and landlines (around 40 countries).
I will update this post with more details. I have added the update below. Our reader (and a good friend) who sent me this tip confirms that he is able to make phone calls from India (using Skype app on his computer) to US (to mobile number) just fine.
Follow the instructions given below to activate your one month Skype subscription for free:
Go to this page — Skype International Offer.
Click on the “Claim you free month” button. Log in to your Skype account, or create a new one.
Enter your personal details. The first month subscription (costs $13.99) will be waived off completely, as you can see below.
Choose your payment method. Note: Yes, You must add your card details. You can use a credit card, debit card, PayPal account, or Skrill account to make the $1 payment. Don’t worry, your money will be refunded.
Enter the details of your card.
Verify payment, and wait for Skype to setup your account. They will email you the details.
Update: Rahul was charged Rs. 68 (about $1.25). The money was refunded to the account after 10 minutes. Great!
Update 2: I was charged Rs. 1 (about $.02). Weird!
Update 3: Offer valid for existing Skype customers who have registered with Skype for more than 29 days.
Update 4: As pointed out in the comment section, we can make free calls worth 10.49 Euros. But Skype says “free unlimited calls worth 10.49 Euros.” Skype also mentions that you can make unlimited calls to landlines. This is a bit confusing.
You can make calls from Skype to mobile phones and landlines to the following countries: Canada, Guam, Hong Kong S.A.R. China, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Thailand and United States.
Update 5: Free one month subscription activated! [Screenshot]
Thanks Rahul for the tip.
