Pingo is a VoIP based international calling card service that offers great service at excellent rates. Pingo offers all the standard features offered by any calling card such as PIN-less dialing, speed dial, access numbers, and auto recharge. As you can see from the table below, they have some great rates (even comparable to Betamax providers). You can find out the complete rates here.
|Country||Rate (US cents)||Country||Rate (US cents)|
However, to encourage new customer trial, Pingo is sweetening the deal with free international calling credits that you can use to make calls (details and coupon follow).
So what’s the deal?
Option A: If you sign up with $5, you will get $4 off, i.e., you only need to pay $1 to get $5 account credit or about 80% off the above rates.
Option B: If you want more minutes, you could sign up with $20 and you will get $14 off, i.e., you only need to pay $6 to get calling credits worth $20 or about 70% off the above rates.
The effective calling rates under the two options are given below:
|Country||Rate – A||Rate – B||Country||Rate – A||Rate – B|
Mind you, the rates above are in US cents and not dollars. These are some real good rates!! Where else would you be able to call India for 0.39 cents? Don’t be misled by the higher rates for option B. Although you pay slightly more as compared to the first plan, you get lot more calling minutes. Further, even with the slight increase, the rates are lot better than any other service provider that you can find. Keep in mind that this offer is valid only for new accounts only, so make sure you make the most of it.
How to avail the deal?
- Go to the offer page (make sure you use only this page) and click Sign up.
- Use the coupon code “onebuck” during the sign-up process for the discount to be applied.
If you haven’t heard about Pingo or never tried their service, this is a great opportunity to explore Pingo. Unlike the Betamax services, Pingo has a full fledged customer service. The call quality is very good and you will not be disappointed with the service. With $1 at stake, you really have nothing to loose!!
