Free SkypeOut in US and Canada to end soon

Thursday, December 14, 2006

Although Skype is ending its promotion of free SkypeOut calls to landlines in the US and Canada on December 31, 2006, they are offering a new promotion for 50% off the cost of unlimited calls between the US and Canada for one year. The typical price is $30 per year, but if you subscribe before January 31, 2007, you can get on the unlimited calls plan for only $14.95/yr and you'll get the following coupons:

  • $30 off Polycom Communicator speakerphone
  • $30 rebate on Netgear WiFi Phone for Skype
  • $10 off Motorola Wireless Internet Calling Kit
  • $10 off Motorola Talk and Tunes HT820 Bundle
It's interesting, albeit expected, that this promotion follows its free calling promo. Let's see if Skype is able to turn its users into paid subscribers and eventually make a profit for parent company, eBay.
