Reconnect with your family through Skype and Xoom’s $50 credit offer
Being able to transfer money overseas electronically may be a great thing to have in this day and age. However, many would argue that the best advancement in technology is the ability to communicate with loved ones through video conferencing services like Skype.
Since 2003, Skype has enabled millions of people throughout the world to reconnect with their loved ones through voice, video and instant messaging via the internet. In fact, more than 31 million people use the service today throughout the world, including those in countries like Australia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, France, Italy, South Africa and several others.
Skype's popularity has surged since it's inception thanks to serving as a convenient alternative to phone company subscriptions, as in addition to the extra features that telephone companies don't offer, the service is fairly inexpensive.
And today, in partnership with Xoom, Skype users can get $50 worth of credit toward their Skype accounts – enabling them to talk to their loves longer for virtually no charge.
This offer is available to first-time users of Xoom after they send their initial money transfer to their loved ones. Afterward, they'll receive a unique code that they'll be able to add to their Skype account worth $50. This redemption process can be done simply by visiting Skype, signing in as you normally would, then entering the code in the appropriate box.
This offer only lasts for so long, however, as the promotion ends September 30.
To get started right away, visit Xoom.com for additional information.
