$$$ for Intl Calls with Sprint NW 40,000

I talked with Sprint about international calls before signing up on this one - you can not get any plan for discounted intl calls with this promotion - their call charges start at $1.28 per minute to Canada! (as another poster noted)

So, if you want the 40,000 you need to have 18 months of calling card calls for intl - I guess that is how they make their money.

I guess there is always a catch...

Guess it is too late for the NW 40,000 miles deal?

What I do for international calls is use a dial around service. I like this as it has no monthly mins. and reasonable rates for most places. You are billed , so you do not have to worry about recharging and running out in the middle of a call and such like with a calling card. For Canada it is 6.9c if I remember correctly.

Checked and Sprint posted the 5,000 NW miles on Sept. 30 as they promised!

I used IDT global call to avoid the intl charges - its a small hassle for a free flight after 8 months of the plan.
