Skype changing prices?

I am getting the wrong price when I try to buy SkypeIn. Everywhere I look on the Skype webpage, the cost is listed as $12 for 3 months and $38 for 12 months. When I go to check-out, however, it offers me the choice of $18 for 3 months or $60 for 12 months. Is this a poorly-coordinated price hike or something wrong with the check-out?

FWIW- Skype customer service just got back to me and said they're having some problems with the in-program buying setup. They recommended I go to If you're trying to buy directly in the program, there's a slim possibility that's part of the problem.

Are you sure the quoted price is in dollars? When I bought my skype plan all the prices were initially quoted to me in Euros but the checkout converted them to dollars for me.

Mine is in Canadian dollars, and it says "Only $38 for 12 months or $12 for 3 months" but I didn't go through the further steps. That's Canadian, not Euros.
