Get $20 worth of Skype credits for only $10 [Updated]

It's Friday, and that means people are already daydreaming about the weekend. They want to go out and see friends, maybe do some hiking or catch a ball game. Others just want to catch up with some friends remotely via Skype but might need some credits to to make calls.

The Slickdeals.net website has pointed us to a deal that might help you out in this regard. It offers a link to the CollegeBudget website that gives folks a way to get $20 worth of Skype credits for just $10. The only restrictions are that you have to either have an .edu email account or a Facebook account. That should cover almost everyone.

Once you pay for the $10 of Skype credit you get a code via an email. After that, you simply sign into your Skype account page and then type in the code in the voucher page to claim your $20 in credits. The countdown on the deals page indicates it will close just a few minutes before midnight Eastern time. That's not a lot of time to take advantage of this sale so people who are eligible and who want to save some money on Skype credits should act quickly.

UPDATE: It looks like the deal has been extended for the next 14 hours, so if you missed the offer last week, you can still take advantage of it today!

VoipConnect is way cheaper (1/100 of the price for countries I call).
I haven't used Skype for phone calls in a couple of years.

Nice to see more proof that Neowin has become a place for people to whine, b****, and complain about anything Microsoft does. Give a 50% discount to virtually anybody who has a computer - well they are evil because they are not giving that discount on my terms and need to be attacked over it. Just plain pathetic.

yeah I thought it was only students but anyone with a Facebook account can use the deal. People are nuts, seriously!

Wait how is this a ripoff? I was thinking about getting it, I probably will have to use Skype's paid features one day...

It is a ripoff because Microsoft is not giving him money. He is a (as his profile says) "Linux Lover" which means Microsoft needs to cater to his every need, give him free stuff, give it to him on his terms, and even then he reserves the right to complain about it publicly because he is entitled to receive even more from them. A discount? Not good enough, Microsoft must give it to him for free even if it costs them money.

But remember, many of the people here, and even some of the staff, think this is a place that forces hate against Apple/Google/ABM.

Oh okay, it seemed like that's all it had to be

Just for you soldier1st:
*Buys $20 Skype credits from Microsoft*

Yeah

EDIT: I was going to buy it I swear, but then that meant putting in financial info and I became lazy so yeahh..

Office 365 University offer was great! I got 60 Skype minutes free a month, including Microsoft Office apps and 20GB more of space for SkyDrive.
