SBS Partner Subsidy promotion expanded

Some of you may remember back in July when we announced the SBS Partner Subsidy promotion for all purchases of SBS Server through Open Value and Open L+SA:

Another offer just announced! Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 R2 Partner Subsidy Promotion through Open License and Open Value, plus an exclusive bonus for our Small Business Specialist Partners!!

Today I am happy to announce two additional enhancements to this offer:

1) We are extending the offer to purchases of SBS Server through the Open Business License only (L) offering.  Purchasing SBS (L) only will qualify you for a $100/$225 Partner subsidy for Standard/Premium vs. the $120/$260 or $150/$325 Partner subsidies you would qualify for if you purchased the SBS L+SA through Open Business or Open Value.  In addition, those purchasing the (L) only will not receive the upgrade protection included in the L+SA SKUs, meaning that when SBS “Cougar” releases next year, those with the (L) only will not receive the rights to upgrade to Cougar.  Here is the chart of the updated Partner Subsidy amounts:


2) The second enhancement to this offer is the addition of the mobility offer with the Palm Treo 700wx.  This enhancement provides an additional $150 in Partner subsidies when you purchase three or more Palm Treo 700wx smartphones running Windows Mobile from Verizon Wireless.

These offers run through January 31, 2008, so head over to the SBS Promotion page on the Microsoft Incentives site today for full details and start telling your customers about these offers.

Thank you  and have a wonderful day,
