OK, no screenshot.  How do I add two images off my computer (one that says a U.S. unlimited subscription is 6.99/month, and another that says U.S. and Canada unlimited subscription is 2.99/month).

Hello,

Can you provide the website link?
I assume it's http://www.skype.com/go/subscriptions

Some subscriptions are region specific and Unlimited US & Canada is offered for US and Canada customers, but for example I'm in Europe and I only get Unlimited US which has higher price and doesn't include Canada.

This had the $2.99/month option for US and Canada:

Thanks.  That is probably it.  Do you happen to know what happens (as far as subscriptions) for a person that is travelling all over the place, sometimes US, Europe and Asia?

Thanks for the link.
If you are in US then get the 2.99 Unlimited US & Canada
Regarding traveling, it doesn't matter where you are located
subscription still covers calling destination. That's why Skype is great for traveling.

Thanks for the info.  How long has that US and Canada $2.99/month been available as an option?  Back in December 2010, I had to switch credit  cards.  I was told that the $2.99 US and Canada subscription was no longer available (and they said I would have been grandfathered in at that rate if I was able to continue paying on the old card), and the only subscription available was $6.99/month for US.

To be honest I can't even remember, but you may check this with customer service: https://support.skype.com/faq/FA1170
