Okay Mom, I'll Call You More!
I got a gift card from my Mom for $10 of long distance (Talk about the SUBTLE hints! Okay Mom, I'll call more!) and I've been using it now forever and I haven't run out yet. So I guess my money saving tip is find a good cheap long distance company.
My Mom uses a company called Footbush Long Distance, www.footbush.com, (have no clue on the name?!?) and that's where the gift card came from. So now I'm using it as well. It's great and easy to use. Works sort of like a calling card or phone card, but there's not an actual card, it's all online.
So there's my little tip! Happy Calling!
