As well as ValueIreland.com and Thrift.ie, another website that I maintain is the SayNoTo1890.com site. This site will save you money on calling 1890, 0818 and 1850 numbers by providing geographic alternative phone numbers instead.
In case you’re not familiar with the website or the money saving idea behind it, here’s the blurb from the site:
For many people who have inclusive bundles of minutes with their landline and mobile phone packages, you’re still charged extra to call 1890, 1850 and 0818 numbers. The calls sometimes cost more than you’d expect given they’re called Lo Call or Call Save numbers, especially when calling from mobiles.
This website will provide you with geographical alternative phone numbers for the many companies that insist on still using these phone numbers – even though they’re costing their clients more than it should to get in contact with them.
A geographical alternative phone number is a local telephone number, which when called is normally subtracted from your minutes bundle allocation instead of you being charged extra.
Right now I’m in the middle of trying to make the site a lot more user friendly and easier to search than it is right now. However, while that’s being done, if you’re able to provide a geographical alternative for any of the following 1890, 1850, or 0818 numbers, please e-mail me here and I’ll publish them on the website for all to use.
