When I was in college, back in the “old days” as my kids call it, I used toll free numbers. They were free to use from my room or anywhere on campus. My calling card (remember those?) was a toll free number and all I had to do was remember my PIN number and I was good to go. Well, believe it or not, toll free numbers are still useful today as they were over 15 years ago. I still use these numbers to call customer service, my mother’s job, and my kids’ dentist. Even though now I save them in my cell phone, whenever I need to pick up a landline phone, toll free numbers are still convenient and free. They are also lifesavers if your cell phone is dead or in a dead area and you need to use one of these numbers at a pay phone. Yes, pay phones still exist!! Several businesses find toll free numbers easy to remember for their clients by having the name of the company spelled out after the “1-800…” Honestly, that’s how I call my bank, to check my balance when I can’t get to the internet or an ATM. There’s old saying, “what’s old is new again”. Toll free numbers are kind of like loyalty, they are vintage!
