Update: It looks like the promotions is taken down by Skype, probably due to popular demand.
Among the many technology products we use, there’s one company in the communication space which most of us will definitely know: Skype.
Skype allows users to communicate with one another by voice using a microphone, video by using a webcam, and instant messaging over the Internet. Calls to other users within the Skype service are free of charge, while calls to landline telephones and mobile phones are charged via a debit-based user account system.
As of August 2013, there are over 300 million users globally using Skype to keep in touch with their loved ones.
Recently, we found out that the company is discreetly offering Skype Premium – including Group video chats, screen sharing, support, and no ads – for free!
The offer comprises a twelve month group video calling subscription and must be redeemed on or before 30th April 2014 and commences on the redemption date. Skype account required and subscription may only be redeemed in respect of one Skype account. Group video calling can be between three (3) or more (up to a maximum of ten (10) people).
Why is it interesting? Normally, Skype Premium is worth $107 per year.
Here’s how to get the deal:
- Go to https://collaboration.skype.com/promotion/ and sign up.
- You’ll receive a voucher code in your email in 24 hours
- Go to http://skype.com/go/voucher, and enter your voucher coupon code.
- Enjoy your Skype premium credits for free!
Is this legit?
We are glad you asked. We asked the same question too, knowing that there are a lot of suspicious voucher and deal promotions spreading around. Well the site looks legit as the links are from the original Skype.com domain, in this case, it is: https://collaboration.skype.com/promotion/
Phishing sites usually runs on third party domains.
The email that you’ll be receiving should be something like this:
Merry Christmas from all of us at Vulcan Post!
