Cheap Skype Credit Is Your Call-Your-Mother Deal of the Day

Today's deal is simple. Skype, the VoIP program owned by Microsoft, is offering gift cards at 30% off. That means if you already use Skype to call phone numbers or text folks, you can purchase your credits today for significantly less than you can normally. That could end up being huge if you call overseas regularly or use the Windows Phone 8 Skype integration. Skype credit can also buy you call forwarding and time at a Skype WiFi hotspot, in addition to the SMS and calling.

Here's how you get the deal: you travel to this link, fill out the form to send a gift card to somebody (including yourself) and at the end you plug in the code skypegift. They'll email you the gift card code, and you'll have some discounted Skype credit. Translation: free money to go call somebody you love. [Skype]

Cheap Skype Credit Is Your Call-Your-Mother Deal of the DayS

Everyone who says they don't buy sunglasses/gloves/umbrellas because they just lose them: have you considered the fact if you get a a nice pair of sunglasses or gloves you'll be less likely to lose them because, y'know, they're actually nice? Like these cashmere-lined leather gloves. No, they don't work with touchscreens, but a little bit of conductive thread can take care of that. [Nordstrom]
