Skype is offering unlimited and free global calls for a month to its existing customers. The trial must be redeemed by the end of the day today (November 15) and only applies to people who have been registered with Skype for more than 29 days. Thankfully, for most tech enthusiasts, chances are you’re already a Skype member. Unfortunately, like most trials, you’ll need to include your payment information so that Skype can automatically bill you (the fee is $13.99 per month) if you don’t cancel before the month is up.
The offer is not available in China, Korea, Russia or Taiwan, Skype said, and it supports calls to mobile and land lines only in Canada, Guam, Hong Kong S.A.R. China, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Thailand and the United States. Land line calls are supported to more than a dozen additional countries.
It’s not a bad deal if you plan on using Skype in the future anyway, but I probably won’t sign up since I don’t place enough monthly calls to make the recurring $13.99 fee worth it.
