Costco Phone Card - Prepaid

This  blog was written in 2008.  Phone cards are now absolete

If you never tried Costco's Prepaid Phone Card, you MUST read this.  This can save you a lot of money.

With Costco prepaid phone card, you pay less than $0.03 per a minute for long distant phone calls, period.

My total long distant telephone expense is about $20.00 a year.  One phone card with 700 minutes lasts about 1 year.  I don't use phone too much.  I also have a prepaid cellular phone which I pay $5.00/m.  I will tell you about that later.

I don't have a long distant carrier for my home phone.  My long distant carrier's been cut off for many years now.  I have 800 access number and the pin number in my speed dial.  I just "click" "click" and I'm connected to verizon at less than 2.9 Cents a minute.

Costco used to have phone cards from MCI.  That's when I first purchased Costco's Prepaid Phone Card.  Now they are from Verizon, with the same low rate.

With less than $0.03 a minute, there is no excuse to keep your long distant carrier. 

Costco also has Verizon's International Prepaid Phone Cards.

These cards are real deal, nothing shady about it.  You must get it.  It's a sure way to save money.

Recharging phone card is pretty simple.

Oh, my God!

Debbie, I am so sorry, I didn't know your posts were trapped in the spam folder for over 1 month.  I feel horrible.  I didn't mean to ignore you.

I wrote a new page about my $5/m cellular phone plan.  Now they have $6.99/m plan.  Here's the link.

Hope so , I ordered one today.

I assume you can use this with any unlocked phone or a Verizon phone?

Are there any limitations I should know about? I don't have a Verizon plan phone at the moment.


Now I have Verizon FIOS - it comes with unlimited long distant calling. I recently switched my Phone/Cable/Internet to Verizon 3 months ago.

Anyway. Verizon (Costco) prepaid calling card doesn't have any restriction.

Before I had FIOS, I had my long distant service disconnected. I never had long distant service for several years.

There is no restriction.

Back then, I could even use it on payphone with $.50 extra charge. My friend even used my card to call Mexico a few times.

what if I wanna use it to call FROM Mexico to the USA?? How much is it per minute??

mm.. this is an old thread. 3 years old.
I am not even sure if there is such thing as Costco phone card anymore.

At that time, somebody did use my phone card from Mexico to call me. It was still cheap, but I don't remember how much it was - maybe around $0.12 - $0.25/min.

howdy john.
well i got a bunch of those mci cards and have used them for a LONG time (like 4 years or something), but i've lost the 800 (or was it 888) number to dial into in order to use my minutes. i still have my pin/ access code, but i do not have the 800/ 888 number. do you know it?
thanks and God bless you + yours,

No, I don't know. Let me see if I can location them phone card at Costco next time.
