Skype Credit Expiration sucks!

Sunday, July 23rd, 2006

Was trying to SkypeOut a buddy in London and found that Skype gobbled up the 2.40 Euros left in my account. They have some weird 180-day rule — which covers the forfeiture of balance after 180 days of the last SkypeOut call.
It seems they remind people via e-mail; which may have landed to junk mail folder straight in my case. Why can’t they send an alert to the Skype Window itself? The same place where they show the credit balance all the time?
Sucks! Weird..F***
I’m not alone. Here, here, and here
