Raza calling card keeps on launching the same offer again and again with different promotional names, this time it is "Big celebration offer" where they are claiming to offer you 1 cent to India mobile or some selected cities with No expiration and No hidden taxes. It means 1000 minutes in $10. We reviewed their offer and found that their actual offer is somewhat different from the real one, eventually taking extra money from your pocket. With this offer, apparently it seems that you are paying $10 for $10 credit, actually you will be getting only $8 after paying around$13 which is 62.5% extra, which makes your effective calling rate of 1.62 cents per min.
Here are some points that I would like to let you know before you buy
- The call quality is good but sometimes keeps getting disconnected abruptly.
- There is an extra HIDDEN charge of $2.99 (so actually 1.3c/min with the extra $2.99 charge-i.e. 10+2.99 = $12.99/1000mins).
- Its mandatory to signup for Auto Recharge/refill for 1c/min offer, This means that they will debit your credit card with $10, without your permission, as soon as ur balance reaches $2. so if you want to stop using the service you loose $2.
- Raza.com reserves the rights to withdraw or alter the India 1 cents Big Celebration Offer at any time without prior notice.
The promotion displays “No expiration and No hidden taxes” however you pay $5 extra, it is nothing but a sale gimmick which one customer realizes after he has used this service.
This is my personal opinion based on the users/readers comment received on the previous posts published on this blog. The final decision is yours. If you had been a victim of Raza calling cards in the past, please share your opinion here.
