Santa Cruz, CA (PressExposure) November 17, 2008 -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
One Soldier Gift in Iraq Can Help Ruin the Holiday
Care packages from across the globe will be shipped overseas as the holiday season nears for the soldiers stationed in Iraq. For many military personnel this is their rare chance to embrace home when so far away. The USPS reports close to half a million packages being shipped per month to military P.O. boxes already in the preseason of the holidays and that number is sure to climb.
While many gifts are being shipped and payed for, many soldiers in Iraq can expect some gifts that will not be being mailed and in fact will be free this holiday season. With Internet technology use on the rise, many a soldier can expect Internet video greetings, email pictures, and even podcasts of family members voices.
One popular holiday gift for military personnel that requires no shipping and can be low cost are international prepaid calling cards. Prepaid calling cards since the revolution of the Internet have allowed users to receive a PIN (personal identification number) with an access number to make calls from without an actual physical card. This makes prepaid calling cards easy to share and gift to those where shipping may be difficult or costly.
While this gift is popular, there are some common misconceptions about international calling cards that a consumer should be aware of before purchasing one for their soldier in Iraq. Surcharge fees, per minute rates, and monthly fees are common pitfalls a consumer may fall victim to, however, one particular technicality can turn a calling card gift into a worthless hassle if not properly addressed before making a purchase decision.
