How to make a free international call to your bank

I needed to call my bank in the U.S. from Liverpool, England, and figured it would take a while. So I asked my little sister for a favor. On Skype, she dialed the bank with the call on speaker phone and acted as my operator through the automated touch tone system.

The call took about 45 minutes, which would have cost around $45 after exchange rates. Thanks to my sister, it was free — aside from eating up her time. With obstacles like answering really obscure security questions, the situation was pretty hilarious. (“Michelle, quit playing music!” “Why would I do that? It’s their lame hold music.”)


Fun on Skype.
