    All I'll say is great deal.

    •  

      Work pays US$ 149 per Year… for Unlimited calls to over 40 countries (some incl Mobiles there) plus up to 3 Incoming DID phone numbers across the planet.

      For those who can justify / afford a bit over US$ 12 per Month, the annual Skype Subscription has to be a better deal.

      …just saying'. :-)

        sounds good!

        link please….

  •  

    If it looks good and textures good, the deal must smell good!

      lolwut? ಠ_ಠ

    I had issues redeeming the gift cards through skype, anyone else have any issues?

    •  

      Worked fine the last card I bought from Target at half price.

    •  

      I dint have any problems redeeming the ones from target. What was the issue u were facing

  •  

    How is the value compared to the calling cards you can purchase from those Asian shops?

        On?

  •  

    I'm assuming these can be used to top up a Skype account? What denominations are available?

  •  

    how does this work if your on a subscription? does the credit come off your account each month?

    •  

      Infinity minus any integer is still infinity..

      (To grok the above, just replace Infinity by Unlimited call time.)

      Actually, Skype keeps a separate balance on SkypeOut time, that you can use for SMS's & calls to mobiles, etc

  •  

    Also if you are not on a subscription, does the credit from the cards expire? I am thinking about getting bulk cards and putting it in my account.

      Once put into your account, the credit doesn't expire. It used to be they would suspend your account if you didn't make any use of some credit at least once in 6 months, but would reactivate it with no loss of credit on request. I don't know if they still do this.

      •  

        Thanks :)

  •  

    I don't get it. I thought using Skype app for video call and text is always free?

    •  

      Skype to Skype is free indeed. Skype to landline or mobile phones costs money.

      •  

        I use it to call relatives on mobile but it's quite expensive. I discover rebtel which is a lot cheaper than Skype but not as clear as Skype but a hell lot better than calling card.

        •  

          Try PennyTel, they're quite cheap and I've found the quality to be pretty good.

  •  

    Why can't I find anything skype related on eBay?
    Surely people sell cards on there?

      Why would you expect there to be a market for Skype cards on eBay? Who would be the sellers?

      •  

        People who buy half price Skype cards?

        •  

          I guess buyers are OzBargainers who wait for the next half price sale. :)

    Do note: anyone who actually uses skype for phone calls is paying way too much, even with 50% off.

    Pennytel's voip rates are much lower than skypes. 1.6c per minute, and 10.5c per minute for mobiles is their PAYG rate.
    Skypes is 3c per minute, and 26.9c per minute for mobiles.

    Skype also has 6.9c and 12.9c flagfall fees, which pennytel does not have.

      I actually use them for a different purpose, to have a way to make cheap calls home in a pinch from overseas on vacation.

      •  

        yes i agree with greenpossum but lets hope that folks are not using free "skype to skype" when overseas, roaming on cellular, now that might turn ugly when seeing the bill on returning home.

          Australia seems to be tourist unfriendly when it comes to free WiFi in lodgings. A lot of overseas places I stayed at provided WiFi gratis. Here they charge you for everything.

    •  

      Like most voip phone companies, Pennytel is better value than others depending on what country you call… there is not one company that is cheaper for all calls to anywhere, well not in my experience anyway…

      To prove this look at a country like Zambia on pennytel… no matter what plan you sign up for or payg the call rate remains the same… nearly 19c a minute to mobiles… same as skype…. I have found that Virgin is cheaper for calls to Zambia at 15c per minute via mobile, no internet connection required…

      Horses for courses….

      If people are looking at cheap phone calls (Mobiles) and find a cheaper rate for calling Zambia please let me know… though I think I have checked everything…

      I have been using Pennytel for years and years. I use Cisco PAP2 VoIP Box with ADSL2+ Connection. I found to call Landline is hit and miss. Voice is not that great, most of the time I hear like a robot sound. At the end, I have unused credit on Pennytel. Pennytel to Pennytel VoIP is always excellent.

      On the other hand, Skype never misses the beat, even I'm on crappy 3G signal, calling landline (overseas) is reasonable OK and quite clear.

    Any one used Skype wifi. no idea how it works in Aus

    • +1 vote

      There's very little info on it, even people on the Skype forum complain. But it's simply a way of paying WiFi providers without using a credit card. Rates vary by provider. There is no "Skype WiFi network". Presumably this is mostly of use to visitors. If you can find a provider that accepts Skype payment; there isn't even a coverage map or list of providers.

      •  

        That's very poor. I think you will waste time finding a Wifi hotspot that accepts Skype credit if at all can find any hotspots…

        •  

          Yeah, Skype doesn't seem to be very interested in promoting this.

        •  

          you can find skype wifi in Singapore airport

  •  

    This deal is good for those traditionally calling landlines via Skype - otherwise there are those Pennytel, Telsta landline addon (+$15/month for unlimited overseas call on select destinations) etc.

    Bought some at Target at the last sale. For everyone that buys this, you need to be careful about the scratch-code on the back. Dont scratch too hard or you can scratch the code right off the plastic its on.

    •  

      Nice one. Good tip. Although it sound like the materials they use are pretty crap

    •  

      Really depends on which reseller they buy from. The 7Eleven ones were on the shitty plastic the ones I bought from Coles and Woolies didn't have it on the plastic but on the actual card with the strip over it.

    NSA listen to your calls on skype!

  •  

    I'm going to clean out Coles.

  •  

    What values do Skype cards sell in?

  •  

    Can you use this to buy subscription or these can only be used as credit?

    Can you use this for any country's account like US one not just Australia based?

    •  

      They can be used for both, I did it with the last deal, when you pay for a subscription you can choose to pay from your skype balance.

      Hmm not to sure about the US one.

  •  

    Stupid question. Currently I have skype installed on my laptop.

    Does the prepaid card from coles work for skype call credit?

    •  

      lol yes… what did you think the card was for?

  •  

    Just picked up 5 cards from new farm in Brisbane. Lots in stock.

    Coles in coorparoo and at the gabba didn't have any stock

  •  

    Why every time I buy credit through Skype.com, this pop ups… ;(

    •  

      Because you bought off Skype before checking Ozbargain!
      Rule #1: Check Ozbargain before you buy anything.
