Globe Duo International $1 PROMO – Save on Long Distance calls

Globe Duo International Sale
UPDATE: For November 1-30, 2014, the Globe Duo International promo is priced at $10. Please see updated post here.

Do you regularly call long distance to someone outside the country? Here’s a cool service to help you save some money on long distance.

I just found out that Globe has a new service called Globe Duo International.

What is does is it assigns a foreign number to a Philippine Globe SIM, so you (who are abroad using foreign telco) can call the Philippine Globe SIM using local rates.

For example:

Let’s say you live in the US and use a US telco.

You regularly call someone in the Philippines with number 0917-1234567. I assume the long distance charges are killer.

To save money on long distance, you can register the 0917-1234567 number to Globe Duo International. Globe will assign a US number to 0917-1234567, like 123-555-5555.

Next time, you just need to call the US number 123-555-5555 and the call will be received by 0917-1234567 in the Philippines. Instead of being charged long distance rates, you will only be charged the US telco’s local rates. I don’t believe the Philippine Globe SIM will be charged anything for receiving the call.

The fee for the Globe Duo International service is US $25 for 30 days, but from October 1-31, 2014, they have a promo where it’s only $1 for 30 days!

There are several ways to register:

  • Duo International website: duointernational.globe.com.ph (pay by credit card)
  • Duo International prepaid card that can be bought from accredited Filipino stores abroad (selected countries only)
  • via SMS using Philippine Globe SIM (I think the Globe SIM will be charged for this, deducted from load credits)
  • via telemarketers (prospective buyers who receive calls from BPO agents can register over the phone, pay by credit card)

Globe Duo International is available in the following countries:

USA Finland Japan South Africa

Austria Hong Kong Netherlands Spain
Belgium Ireland New Zealand Sweden
Canada Israel Norway Switzerland
