Couldn’t get it to work. I followed the link, it asked me to sign in, and then from there it just went to “my account”…didn’t say anything about crediting the minutes. Did you get it right away?
On another Skype note…this offer led me to sign into my Skype account online and check my recent calls and balance. Did you know that in about mid January, they started charging a “connection fee?” I am in Europe most of the year so I use Skype for all my calls and have always enjoyed the 2.1 cent calling to the US. Now, if I have a call that lasts for under a minute, I am charged $0.06 instead of $0.021. I certainly don’t recall being notified of this. Hmmm…
I wonder if Skype has thought this one through and used regional marketing managers to verify the move. At least for Cantonese speaking people “24″ = “easy death” if you read it out. I can imagine very few people from the southeast part of China would use this.
A better alternative would be “28″ which would signify “easy wealth”.
Just thought I’d share since many Chinese people avoid “4″s.
