Compared with other VoIP service providers, I show particular love for Skype for its great voice quality and cheap international calling rates. Of course, cheap rates do not mean free. If you do a lot of international calling, you will find it is still a big part of your regular expense. So it is very awesome to make free calls with Skype. And today we are going to share you with a way to get free Skype calling credit. Hotspot Shield is a very popular VPN which offers service for you to change your IP address and bypass the Internet block. And now if you are using Hotspot Shield for one time, you can get 1 Euro free calling credit from Skype.And special thanks to Doni for sharing this resource with us.
How to get this free Skype calling credit
- First of all, you need to download the Hotspot Shield free version to your computer. If you already have the software, you can go to step 2. If you do not have the software, just download this software here http://hotspotshield.com/. When I tried to download this Hotspot Shield, there was a problem and I failed to download it. And I used Google to find another place to download the software. If you meet the same problem as mine, use Google or drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will sent the software to your email Inbox.
- After you have successfully downloaded the software, run it and install it. When you open the client, a new tab in your browser window and try to connect you with Hotspot shield server and assign you the new IP address. After you are connect to the server, go to step 3.
- Go to http://skype.hotspotshield.com/banner.php,click Get Free Voucher Now and get your free skype calling credit. You will get a unique voucher code and go to step 4.
- Login into your Skype account, and go to https://secure.skype.com/account/voucher/redeem/. Enter the Skype voucher code and you will see your account be credited with 1 Euro credit.
And note that the Hotspot Shield software just change your IP address and will not hurt your computer. If you want to get more Skype calling credits from Hotspot Shield by installing the software more times( which I do not encourage to do so), I think this will not work unless you clear your cookies or change your IP and change your MAC address. Anyway, try it yourself.
