Using the VoIP technology, through phone cards, will indeed save you a lot of cash on phone calls. You will be able to make international calls to destinations all around the world at the lowest possible rates. But did you know that you can make even more savings by using phone cards?
There are a few simple tricks you can apply in order to pay even less for your long distance calls, and we are going to list them below:
1. Get a card for the specific destination you plan to call and the appropriate call length:
This means you will need to figure out a few details, by asking yourself these questions:
Which country will I be calling to?
Depending on this, you should do a search to see all cards for that country. Use the search box on www.bananacall.com, and select the "Calling from" and "Calling to" countries. This will generate a list of all the cards available for those countries.
Will I be making longer calls, or shorter ones?
Depending on this, you should select a calling plan with a bigger billing increment or a smaller one, respectively. On www.bananacall.com, a smaller billing increment means slightly higher rates, whereas the higher increment means a lower rate. However, once you answer the question above and realize what kind of calls you'll be making, you will be able to pick the most appropriate plan for you.
If you make longer calls, you will make the most out of your plan if you pick one with a higher billing increment. If you will be making shorter calls, you're best advised to use a calling plan with a shorter billing increment. This will guarantee you get the best value for your purchase.
2. Get New Customers Discounts
With BananaCall, you get a whooping $10 discount on your first order of $50, if you also activate auto-recharge. This is a great offer if you plan to make calls to an international destination especially since your calling plan never expires! This means you will get $10 worth of free calls to use whenever you please, without the fear that your credit will expire on a certain date. Also, having auto-recharge activated, you make sure that you never run out of credit in the middle of a phone call you credit gets automatically recharged when you reach a limit set by you.
3. Use Local Access Numbers
This is a great way of saving a lot of credit on your calling card, call after call. When you make calls using a local access number (instead of the standard toll-free access number that BananaCall provides you with), here's what happens: you get 1 cent less/minute on the rate of your calling plan, but the phone you call from is charged for a local call; this should work perfectly for you, if you have free local or national calls included in your plan.
Taking into account these 3 simple pieces of advice can save you a lot more on your international calls! Also, for more convenience, you can use all of the other BananaCall's special features, like: pinless dialing, speed dial, automatic recharge, and many many more!
