If you’re one of the more than 300 million users who prefer using Skype to stay in contact with those who are most near and dear to your heart, you’ll be happy to know that Skype is looking to make sure you’re covered this holiday season by offering a discount of 30 percent off gift cards.

The promotion, aimed at keeping Skype users connected with voice and video chat during the holiday season, runs through January 15th and can keep users connected no matter where in the world they are (though this promotion is for gift cards purchased online only).

Skype gift cards make an excellent gift or stocking stuffer for those wishing to stay in contact.

Gift card prices start at $10.00 and would make a great stocking stuffer, especially if you’re a mother who’s trying to entice her children to send her a video call during the holidays. Skype gift cards can also be used to make calls to cellular devices and landlines; with $10, you’ll get over 400 minutes of calling time, which should be enough to contact most anyone in your social circle.

Skype gift cards can also be packaged with Xbox One, Surface 2 (or any Windows 8.1 device since the app is now built in, and any smartphone. It’s worth noting that Surface 2 tablets in particular will net you a year of Unlimited Worldwide Calling to landlines in 60 countries as well as unlimited Skype WiFi.

To procure a Skype gift card for yourself and stay connected to your family and friends during the holidays, visit the Skype website.
