Skype launches prepaid gift cards to the UK


Everyone’s favourite video calling service, Skype, has started selling its prepaid cards in the UK today after signing a number of deals with leading shops.

Skype has teamed up with big players, like Asda, Currys, Asda, PC World, WHSmith and Sainsburys, meaning the prepaid cards will be on sale at more than 1,400 stores across the country. You’ll be able to get your hands on £10 or £20 cards, which you buy in-store and then can redeem next time you log-in online.

A lot of Skype’s simple calling features are free to use, but there are premium features, like video conferencing, free wifi access in airports and calls to mobiles and landlines that you have to pay for. The new prepaid cards can be used to pay for these premium options, as well as to pay the £4.99 a month subscription fee for unlimited calls to Europe and the rest of the globe.
