Back to School with Calling Cards


As the summer months wind down, school is on everybody’s mind again. The yearly ritual of back to school shopping, is about to begin. Along with the books and the backpacks, calling cards are high on the list as well. First year University or college students going away for the very first time from home will not want to leave without phone cards that can keep them in contact with their loved ones.

The big move into residence away from home can be hard on both parents and students. Dealing with administration at school, adjusting to new environments, and trying to make new friends can be tough on any frosh student. Calling cards can help to maintain relationships for both parent and child. Whether it is just calling to say hi, or calling to vent about the frustrations from school, keeping in contact with your loved ones is essential to both body and mind. When you are surrounded by unfamiliarity, it is nice to know that comfort is just a call away.

Phone Card Depot is a one stop shop for convenience and accessibility. In between the busy summer schedules, can let you purchase your calling card with simple computer access. The easy three step online process lets you choose where you are calling from to where you need to reach. Visa or Mastercard payment is the second step, and then a PIN code will be emailed to your personal account in moments, allowing you to use your purchased phone card right away.

Phone Card Depot also features No Fee calling cards which allow the user to purchase their cards without the hassle of paying additional fees. Bita, CiCi, and Global Papa are all No Fee calling cards. Phone Card Depot recommends No Fee calling cards, which are very flexible. No Fee cards ensure that immediate disconnections, due to the possibility of overworked phone systems, do not deplete or waste the entire value of the prepaid card in several attempts.

Calls within Canada are as low as 2.3c/mins – calls to the U.S are also 2.3c/mins. International calls range from 2.5c/mins to China and 2.9c/mins to Italy.

Calling cards not only provide a financially reasonable option for students and parents alike, it also benefits them in terms of their budgeting skills. Setting aside $5, $10, or $20 for prepaid calling cards will help them save in the long run for other necessities like food and textbooks. Stephanie Abba from says that “I had huge phone bills my first year at university. Somewhere in the $600 range - I had to borrow money from friends to make the payments. I know how much you’ll miss your family, your friends and your significant other, and believe me, they’ll miss you too. But no one wants a phone bill the size of the national debt.” She recommends long distance calling cards and plans.

Phone Card Depot boasts security and ease with their products. Any new calling cards that are added to are screened and examined before any action takes place. Phone Card Depot also features a full discloser policy that allows any new or potential customers to know what they are committing to before purchase. Customer service and customer retention are top priority for Phone Card Depot.

Parents and students can rest assured that their purchase will be exactly what they are expecting, no hidden fees, and no surprise charges that will add unwanted stress to the already hectic, but exciting first year of college.
