It had been in the back of my mind for a while; I needed more from my VoIP provider. I had heard a little bit about Phone Power before, but I had no idea they were offering so many great features for such a reasonable price. My startup cost with Vonage was $57.78 USD, compared to only $32.98 USD with Phone Power! On top of that, Cashle paid me $20 USD cash to switch
; my highest payout offer to date (interestingly, I was the only person to take advantage of it)! It is a contract, but for the next 2 years I pay only $18.02/mo USD! When I started with Vonage, I paid $17.42/mo USD; nearly 4 years later, I was paying $26.92/mo USD for the exact same features and minutes! With Phone Power I get over 45 calling features, a free 2nd phone line, and a free PC software phone ($9.99/mo USD with Vonage, and it only includes 500 minutes)! This includes 5,000 outbound minutes a month (inbound always free), versus only 500 with my Vonage plan; plus I get 1 free hour of international calling per month! The call quality and network availability seem to be just as good, if not better too. Also, some of the features are really useful, like call blocking, selective call forwarding, and being able to receive faxes without a fax machine!
Cost to simply keep my Vonage plan for the next 2 years: $646.08 USD
Cost to switch to Phone Power, and pay monthly for 2 years: $447.44 USDSo including the $20 USD cash bonus from Cashle, when my contract ends, I will have an extra $218.64 USD in my pocket!
I'd like to follow up by saying that I think Vonage is a good company, however, in recent years they've simply failed to remain competitive. The monthly cost for my plan had slowly increased over the ~4 years I had been with them, and they haven't added calling features that people have been requesting for a few years. This probably isn't all their fault, given they used off the shelf components to build a network, and then got sued by all the big boys for their trouble, but the facts remain; everyone is looking for ways to save money lately, and people should have the calling features and flexibility they want!
So that's my story about how Cashle paid me to switch to a vastly superior, yet more reasonably priced digital phone service. Phone Power has a deal right now that works out to be just over $10.55/mo USD if you pay for 2 years in advance; since the Cashle offer has now expired, you won't get the $20 USD cash bonus for signing up like I did, but it's definitely one sweet deal even without it! Stay tuned for an even more impressive story about how Cashle has saved me money while improving my quality of life!
