Not wishing to reflect badly on the poster but IMHO Skype is not a bargain at any price. I rejoined about 6 months ago after an absence of 10 or so years. It has become extremely difficult for me to do anything. I bought $25 worth of time 3 months ago and just last week had to go thru a process to "renew" it as they cancel your $'s if you don't use them in 3 months. Not a major issue but just another way to make things more complicated than they need to be. I searched some of their prices and found that it cost .33 a minute to call certain places in the Ukraine. Skype Is so high that they make Ma Bell look like Queen of the May! They also play a game with accounts. After being a member for 1 week they had 6 different accounts open in my name. They eventually corrected this but it seems to be starting over again.

Skype is still not expensive than google voice, not even worth it at half price

What service(s) do you use to call Ukraine? Also call Ukraine and have found Skype on promotion to be the cheapest...

I use it for sub with a separate phone number attached, so I can accept regular calls on my Skype. It's convenient and cheap enough for me.

Skype charges connection fee per phone call, while Google voice doesn't. So that it will be cheaper on Skype for long-time call but Google Voice is better for short-time call.

Is there a better alternative to call Canada from the US? Wife's family lives in Canada, and we pay $3 a month for unlimited minutes over skype along with a local number to access Skype-To-Go. So worth it.

Thanks! That's almost as good as the Newegg coupon deal from 2014..
(bought the $50 Skype credit for only $25 after coupon code on Newegg)

I forgot... how many minutes or hours after the purchase does Newegg
email the Skype code?

exactly 36% discount, according to my calculator?

like I said above, not as good as the 50% off Newegg Skype deal from 2014. Frown

If you have Office 365 subscription, you can use Skype call Canada for free.

I know that if you charge it to account, It won't expire, but if you leave it uncharged, It expire in half year. I have similar bought from chat&vison as skype voucher, it expired without refund, what a rouge company by Skype.

a better way to go is VOIP (voice over internet protocol) telephone which is marketed by a number of different companies. I have been using OOMA for the past six years and it has been off line for less than half an hour since I joined. Actually I have the older (original) equipment so my internet is totally free but I elect to pay $120 a year for the OOMA Premium service which give me an additional phone number and various services such as call logging, blacklisting, and other extras. Long distance Is totally free in the US and Canada. The sound quality is the same as any regular telephone company and you can not tell the difference. Unless you can find a used OOMA (original) you will be forced to use the newer more modern unit which will cost approximately $10 a month. I am not sure if the second telephone number is included or if there is an additional charge. The newer unit has features like call forwarding to your cell phone and other perks.
