They give you 5 cents a minute all the time with NO monthly fee. You also get one free call a day up to 100 minutes ($5). So if you only make one call a day ---your bill is FREE. NOTE: just like the other deals I post, I don't verify them myself. So not sure if this is truly legit looks like it though. Anyhow sign right on up here (http://www.bigredwire.com/index.html).

Only problem is you have to switch your long distance plan... I'm in a dorm and I can't do that, or this would be a sweat deals... guess I'll just keep looking for free calling cards on here... thanks anyways...

Wow! This is great. But I just signed up with Essential, but the check hasn't been here yet. Do you think if it is ok to not use essential now? Like not depositing that check? Or "deposit that into my own account" :P ?
I make long distance calls all the time, so this really helps my bill...

But BTW, spigidy. That's a huge list of deals you have found! I think this forum should become "Got|SPIG? Forum". Anyway, Keep it up man! :)

Ok, so I looked at the site and here are the catches.
1) Call has to be less than 100 minutes and it has to be out of state or international- no instate calling.
2) You have to have to visit their site the same day as the call to remove the charge for that call. (no doubt generating ad money in their pockets, no big deal)
3) You have to have 'Volts' to remove a charge, the bigger the call the more 'volts you need.
4) You are given a couple volts to start, but heres the biggie-<span style="color:red"> to earn more volts you have to have an <b> Ad Bar </b> (like alladvantage) across the bottom of your screen while you surf. </span>
Now that is crap. But if you dont mind the ad bar I guess this is an acceptable deal for you. And the .05 a minute rate is a pretty good rate also. I guess this is one of those 'bittersweet' deals. :)

We use GTC Telecom on the two home phone lines; Five cents per minute anytime, any day with no monthly fee. As well as $0.05/min in-state in CA.
BigZoo is a great calling card when away from the home phone. :)

is BigZoo a Voice-Over-Ip/Internet-Telephony based calling service? If not then how the hell can they afford to have such ridiculously low rates??
09-07-2000, 01:00 AM
Yeah, Big Mi is that BigZoo.com company, any good? Did anyone ever used it?

Sam's Club has a MCI calling card with 1000 minutes of long distance for something like $59.99 and they charge something like .06 a minute for calling made in the continous 48 states. This is a definite buy for those who are traveling the country on work or for college students calling their mommy, because their homesick.... Not like I'm homesick...

My girlfriend and I have been using bigzoo for about 4-5 months. It's pretty simple. Go to their web page and sign up. Give them a credit card number and put money in your account (like a rechargable pre-paid phone card). It is truely 3.9 cents a minute. With the basic account, there is no monthly charge. No minimums or in-state/out-of-state requirements. Every time you call, you get a summary of the money in your account and minutes available. You also get an online summary of your calls.
The only problems I've ever run into are the busy signals which have been getting worse lately because of the increased amount of users. However, they now have the upgraded service (can't remember what they call it) for $.75/month which claims to give you extra 800 numbers so there are no busy signals and other added benefits. I have not upgraded my account to this yet so I don't know whether or not it is better. I simply keep trying a few times if I get a busy signal. I'm hoping most people will get the new service so the original 800 number won't be so busy in the future.
IMHO, If you're willing do dial 31 numbers (800#+PIN+Number) and put up with busy signals (or pay $.75/month), it's a great deal.

For those of you who need a good plan for your long distance calls, check out on the following site. http://www.ld.net/1plus/?savehuge There are several plans you can choose as the best plan for you according to your calling pattern. I use IPhoneBill. It is online TRUE COST plan, no monthly fee or minimum usage, rate from 2.9 cents/min. Another advantage for this plan is if you don't make any long distance calls for the month, your bill will be $0, no catch. My phone bills for July and August were $0 because I didn't make any long distance calls for these two months.
