Skype Credit offers the benefit of pay-as-you-go, a convenient and quick way to pay for calls at lower rates. So it would be useful for those who make lesser calls and pay for their usage. However, your Skype Credits will be deactivated if you are inactive for more than 180 days. In that case, you need to reactivate the Skype Credit from the official website.

Why My Skype Credit is Deactivated?

If your inactive Skype is inactive for more than 180 days, the Skype Credits will automatically be deactivated from your account. If you haven’t sent or received a message on Skype for 180 straight days, all the credits associated with your Skype account will be deactivated. So, make sure to send a message or make a call to your friends or family at least once in 180 days to keep your credits intact.

When your credits are about to expire, Skype will remind you about the deactivation. You will get two emails from Skype, 7 days before the activation and 2 days before the activation. This is your wake-up call. Text someone on Skype or call someone; otherwise, you will lose your credits. You can also check your Skype profile every once in a while to know about the credit deactivation limit.
