I received an email from skype that they are giving away credit vouchers as a sign of their “sincere apology and offer [of] our gratitude” to their valued customers.
Below is the complete message from skype:
To our valued customers:
As 2010 draws to a close, I would like to take a moment to thank each of you for your patience, understanding, and support during Skype’s recent outage.
We know how important your Skype conversations are to you and we take any disruption to our service very seriously. We are pleased to confirm that Skype is back to normal allowing you to connect with friends, co-workers, family and loved ones.
As a valued customer of Skype, we would like to offer you a sincere apology and offer you our gratitude with a credit voucher worth a call of more than 30 minutes to a landline in some of our most popular countries, such as USA, UK, Germany, China, Japan. Or spend it however you like on Skype.
To redeem your voucher:
1. Go to skype.com/go/voucher
2. Enter your Skype username and password
3. Enter your unique voucher code and click redeem
I believe this is given to ALL their customers so for skype users who haven’t seen this email on your inbox yet, check your spam folder.
Great offer… just in time for new year’s day to call our loved ones on their mobile phones or landlines using skype!
