My wife has an account that has never been used to purchase phone time. However, from time to time she still has credit added to her account. I've just checked her Skype account on her computer and activated the free 20 mins call time which was available.
After closing Skype and restarting, it showed €0.34 (34 cents)in the account.
I downloaded my 'free' Thursday 20 minutes of calls. Skype confirmed they were active. I called a friend in Spain for 17 minutes. Skype deducted the normal charge for the call from my balance. So no 'free' calls. Quality of call was also very poor.
My free 20 minutes never appeared and Skype haven't answered my email on 'why no free time'. So my free call cost me full normal rate - not much, but if you offer free calls you should deliver free calls. Bad taste left in mouth - and all for 20p! Very poor PR.
