Back to School with Calling Cards

It's time for school again already! It can be hard to adjust during the first few weeks of college, even if you're a senior, and especially if you'll be in a different country. Prepaid calling cards make it cheap and convenient to keep in touch with friends and family as you settle in to the new school year.

Here are a few more reasons why prepaid calling cards are wonderful for college students:

1. You can't go over your minutes.
You can only talk for as many minutes as you (or your kind parents) have already purchased until you recharge your card, so you don't have to worry about going over your allotted talk time.

2. There are no roaming fees or special day/night rates.
Calling card rates don't vary throughout the day, so you don't have to wait until after 9 to make your calls. You can use your card from almost any phone.

3. There are cards that are designed with international students, exchange students, and students studying abroad in mind.
Calling cards really shine when it comes to international calls. Calling home from your semester abroad can cost more than $1 a minute if you don't plan ahead; with a calling card, that same call can cost less than 5 cents per minute. Whether you're studying in the United States and calling abroad or vice versa, we have clean, reliable calling cards that can save you a lot of money (something no student can have too much of).

4. Even regular long distance is expensive from your dorm phone.
Campus phone systems can charge all sorts of fees for long distance calls. Avoid them with a prepaid calling card that comes with a local access number - now you're calling a local number to make your long distance call.

5. With online cards, there's no card to lose.
Protect your card information by storing it in your cell phone (or, better yet, your head). Your calling card information is always available to you on the web or in your email, so you won't have to worry about leaving a calling card laying around in your room.
