Pre-Paid Credit for Less!

http://karachi.metblogs.com/images/2006/05/low-cost-credit-thumb.jpg

Just saw this scribbling on a wall last night at Bahadurabad, which reminded me of another shop that once existed and sold mobile credit for less than the face value of the card.

This particular place is opposite Roll Corner in Bahadurabad (which is in a lane opposite Tooso).

If anyone else knows of anyother place…feel free to share with us…

    I made this deal with this shopkeeper near my house; I buy all my prepaid cards from him (mobile, internet, calling cards, etc.) and he gives me 2% to 5% discount, so over the long term I end up paying significantly less.

    I know about the ISPs who gave upto 30% discount to their distributors. Same goes for the mobile and calling card companies.

    If you have friends/family in the US that you end up calling a lot you guys should look into Vonage (www.vonage.com).

    Basically its an internet phone that you setup in the US and then attach the box to your internet connection in Pakistan and for $20 (about Rs 1200) a month you get unlimited calling to/from the US to Pakistan.

    If you have DSL or something similar the voice quality is perfect.

    Lots of ppl think same for Google too that is how do they generate lots of money.I dont think Adsense program is enough to pay six to seven digit salaries to employees.

    This slashdot entry is reporting about a very intresting article about google’strategy to acquire small business.

    ISP’s might be give hig discoutns but mobile and calling card companies offer very low discount like 6-9%

    There is this Pan Shop by the name of Ghani Pan house in the same lane in which is Rajoo Icecream. they are nice freindly people and offer upto 4% discount on calling cards.

    The discount was at times more than being offered by the shops in the lane of roll corner

    if you require more and if many ppl can pool in, one can get 1-2% more disount by getting it directly from the sales rep of these calling cards.

    i have tried for callmate cards. As such there is no restrication on the amount. but ofcourse the amount had to be reasonable.
