DiGI, working together with Skype, is offering postpaid customers 100 minutes worth of Skype credits for free, starting April 1.
New customers signing up for a DiGi postpaid broadband or mobile Internet plan will be presented with a Skype voucher that they can redeem on the voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) provider’s website.
While existing customers that renew their plans or are getting a second Internet plan for their tablets will also be entitled to the promotion.
(Skype credits allow users to pay for other Skype products that are not free, such as using it to call a local mobile number.)
“We’re excited about this partnership and with Skype’s help our customers will be able to communicate with anyone using any device,” Praveen Raja, DiGi head of Internet & Services products portfolio, said.
DiGi said the offer may be open to prepaid customers soon but it is focusing on its postpaid customers for now. “We want to roll it out systematically,” Praveen said.
Tony Saigh, Skype head of mobile partnerships, said that although it wasn’t part of the current plan, it could not be ruled out that the company might strike out a partnership with DiGi to sell Skype credits in the future.
“We have set up partnerships before with some service operators in the United States and Japan to sell Skype Credits,” he explained.
The free Skype credit offer will also be available at participating DiGi Stores nationwide and via DiGi Store Online from April 1 to July 31 on a first come, first served basis.
DiGi said there are limited stocks available.
These credits must be activated by July 31.
