Brief Skype users who buy Skype Credit to pay for international and mobile calls will get six months free calls to UK landlines.

The offer includes any calls to landlines in the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, and Northern Ireland. The offer is available until 31 December.

Skype users already get free calls to Skype or other VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) users, but if you call a landline or mobile number you need credits. Credit must be paid for using a UK registered credit card or PayPal. The service cannot be used for call forwarding.
