Please join us thanking Veterans around the world on Facebook and Twitter.


Geek Squad Agents understand the importance of staying connected with your family and friends, wherever they are serving.  Fortunately, we’ve come a long way from it taking 3 weeks to send a letter around the world.  Today’s technology provides us with many online tools – email, text, chat, and video – that allow real communication in real time.  Skype, for example, is an incredible program that lets users share real time video with voice and chat from any computer with a camera and many of today’s smart phones. It is a great way for service members and their loved ones to have “face-to-face” conversations while they are thousands of miles apart.


Skype is available for free, from the following locations:


Skype for Windows and Mac OSX based computers

Skype for Android powered mobile Devices

Skype for iOS powered mobile devices.


For additional details on how to setup Skype on your PC, check out this free Geek Squad 2 Minute Miracle on setting up your account! http://www.geeksquad.com/do-it-yourself/2mm/Skype-Setup.aspx


We are committed to developing services that support members of our armed services and their families. As a special “thank you,” Geek Squad is proud to offer a 50% discount with no setup fee on our Geek Squad Online Support Plan for Veterans, and those on Active Duty status. We think they have enough on their plates. It’s the least we can do to help them stay in touch with those they love. VisitHttp://www.geeksquad.com/military for details.


On behalf of all Agents, thank you for your service.
