The Open Value VAR Rebate lives on!

Now here is some very exciting news to start off the new year! (That being the new Microsoft year, which runs from July 2008 – June 2009). Given the overwhelming response by partners, the Open Value VAR Rebate will be extended through December 26, 2008!  What this means is:

  1. Partners that enrolled before June 27, 2008 will now be eligible for rebates on Open Value Sales from June 28, 2008 to December 26, 2008.
  2. Partners that enroll between June 28, and December 26, 2008 will be able to participate in the OV VAR Rebate Program for Open Value sales for the period June 28 through December 26, 2008, provided they opt in prior to December 26, 2008.
  3. The products involved and corresponding payout categories remain the same, with the exception of the addition of PerformancePoint Server and the deletion of OneCare

We’ll be providing additional information and resources for you around this in the short term; however, I wanted to get this very exciting news out to you right away so that you had it and could use it in your businesses today! Now for those of you who procrastinated all the way through the Open Value VAR Rebate period that ended on June 27, 2008 and missed those rebates, stop dragging your feet and get out to the opt in page to make sure you don’t miss the rebates this time.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
