Interesting-- I had always assumed moving to a paid plan was a one-way street, with no return to the free plan.

Since rewards balances are back on FreeUP, I checked some of the other Billaway sites-- they're back up and running, too. I think we can safely assume that this was a Billaway reporting issue.

I was a bit surprised, too. I was going to cancel the account altogether but decided to click on the "change plan" button out of curiosity. The 250 minutes free plan along with the global plan options( but none of the old US, Canada, and Mexico plans ) came up, so I thought why not keep the free plan alive. Perhaps a retention ploy. It should work on everyone's account page and can be checked by clicking on the aforementioned "change plan" button to see what's there.

Also of note, it's interesting that the billaway coupon site is still exactly as it was and still asks for a phone verification check. I'm too lazy to try printing a coupon, but maybe someone else will print to see if rewards are granted in a hail Mary attempt to see if coupon printing has risen from the dead, for after all FU never really properly notified its customers of its demise.

Good to know, but will one get rewarded. It worked before with no rewards, so will have to see.

It is odd that of the 'sister' billaway sites (linked some time ago by st3fx), only Freeup.billaway.com still has visible coupons. The other sites have either had the coupon category removed, or coupons simply don't load when the coupon category is selected.

Since I use coupons anyway, I'll run a test tonight and see if crediting takes place. I don't it will work because recently I used their site and did not see any crediting.

Given my track record (about the same as @peterquinn's), I doubt I will ever get any coupon credits, but I'll give it another try and see what happens. Hope springs eternal! :)

If it ain't working, you can't break it. By trying, you've nothing to lose but may be rewarded.:dry: Saw that in a fortune cookie.
