Giveaway: Skype Wireless Headset & Voucher (3 Winners!!!) - CLOSED!

Because you enjoyed my last Skype giveaway so much, the wonderful people at Skype are giving away three more fabulous prizes! :)

Ever wished you could save money on your phone bill? Are you looking for a way to cut your cell phone bill? Check out Skype, a whole new way to communicate! With Skype you can talk, chat and video call anywhere in the world for free* through your internet connection!

You can also send a text message directly from Skype; forward a call to your cell phone; or set up an online number that friends and family can use to make a local call from their old-fashioned phone to your Skype, wherever in the world you are.

3 Lucky Readers will each win a FREETALK Wireless Headset and a 3 month, UNLIMITED WORLD Subscription Voucher! :) The headset itself retails at $79.99!

"This is the headset for anyone who wants to have it all. Super wideband audio, simple to use, luxuriously padded and it sets you free from the computer. Now you can have your Skype calls from where you want."

This would make a wonderful father's day gift - wouldn't it be nice to be able to connect with friends and family -wherever they are in the world? I'm the queen of multi-tasking so for me, the wireless would be super helpful. Wouldn't it great to be able to talk while having your hands free to fold laundry, give yourself a manicure or cut coupons?!

Features:
  • Proprietary technology designed to deliver the highest quality audio clarity.
  • 20Hz~20KHz headphone frequency response.
  • USB Plug- and-Play, no need for complicated pairing or set up, no software installation required.
  • At least 5.5 hours of continuous use per charge.

I visited the Skype website and I had no idea they had plans you can pay for to make calls internationally. It's even cheaper than Vonage! I might just have to switch! :)

I used Skype for the first time a couple of weeks ago. My best friend was in London and I got to talk to her for free! Plus it was a video conference. How cool is that? It's really good quality too!

Amy Hass said...

I looked at the Skype website. I have Skype now but I only use it for video computer to computer calls. It is usually crystal clear and no webcam freezing as on yahoo messenger often does.

I learned so much on the website...but I wasn't aware of all the features involving the use of mobile phones! Excellent.

I hope i win! Yay for this contest!

My in laws have skype...and I got a webcam for Christmas. I haven't set it up yet, and I haven't downloaded skype yet. I don't know what I am waiting for, but I really need to get it done! This headset would make it much easier to start in with it, I'm sure! I have a 2 year old. Both of her aunts and her inlaws all live out of state...so I need to get going on skype-they want to see her more often and it would just be so much fun for her to be able to see and talk to them, too! thanks!

I would call our relatives in Greece.

It’s really easy to call a friend from Skype. Locate the person you want to call in your contact list and click their name. To call your friend for nothing, simply click the green button. This will start the call and you can talk for as long as you want, whenever you want.

I've lived on 3 continents and use skype to call all over the world. I call my folks every other day who live in another country and watch my niece grow up via webcam. The advances in clarity of voice and cam are amazing in skype. Last weekend I was on a call and took my headphones off to answer the door but my leg got caught in the cord and ripped the cord apart, now I have no headset for my computer.

I could call my parents and they could see their grandkids while they talk to them. Or, my sister in Indiana. No overseas friends, but I could let my brother-in-law use it to talk to his sons in Germany, too.

I went to the Skype website & found out that you can make calls to people who don't have skype. I thought it was just a skype to skype type deal. That's cool. I might use this instead of a landline.

10 years ago I was an exchange student, and made many friends all over the world. We keep in touch via facebook, the occasional landline call, and old fashioned snail mail. It would be amazing to talk to them via skype, see their faces and hear their voices. It's the next best thing to being there!
