The Microsoft Office Rebate has been extended!

That’s right!  The Microsoft Office Rebate that was slated to expire on June 30, 2006 has been extended until September 30, 2006.  So your customers can still earn up to $125 for every Microsoft Office Professional or every Microsoft Small Business Desktop license that they purchase through the Microsoft Open Value Licensing Program!  Here’s the link to the promotion page.  I believe that it still has the page from the expired offer up right now; however, that will be changing to the new one (with the updated expiration date) shortly.  The details of the offer remain the same, so you can keep processing your orders right now knowing that you will still be able to receive this great offer for a few more months.


This also means that you can still get the Microsoft Small Business Desktop license for your Small Business customers for only $28 more than a Microsoft Office Small Business Edition license until September 30, 2006!  You can read my prior post on this subject to see how to do this.




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.



Thank you and have a wonderful day,
