Yes, the Small Business Platform SKU DOES qualify for the Microsoft Office Rebate going on right now!

Recently there have been several questions raised as to whether or not the Small Business Platform SKU (B6K-00052 or B6K-00050) qualifies for the Microsoft Office Rebate going on through June 30, 2006.  If you look at the Terms & Conditions page, it most definitely does list the Small Business Platform SKU as qualifying; however, this was not clearly called out on the main offer page.


 


I have been working with the web team who developed the main offer page for this promotion for a couple weeks on this now and I am happy to announce that a NEW main page for this offer has been launched!  If you take a look at the new main page now, I am sure you will agree that yes indeed, the Small Business Platform SKU DOES qualify for the Microsoft Office Rebate.  


 


 


 


What this means is that for every Small Business Platform SKU a customer buys, they would be qualified for a rebate check of $125.  Again, this is one per SKU, so if they are a 5 PC company and they purchase a new Small Business Platform SKU Agreement for their 5 PCs, they would be eligible to receive a check worth $625 ($125 X 5 = $625)!


 


I hope this helps clear up any outstanding questions about the eligibility of the Small Business Platform SKU for this offer.

UPDATE:
As of October, 2008, platform options (such as the Small Business Desktop Advantage) are now handled through the “Build Your Own Platform” model.  Here is the post that explains this new option for you.
