Up to 65% discount on Microsoft Visual Studio Team Systems for U.S. Certified and Gold Certified Partners

image Here is a promotion that offers BIG savings for any Certified or Gold Certified Partner in the U.S.! Right now the U.S. Team is offering a 65% discount off Estimated Retail Price on either the Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Editions (which includes BOTH the Development and Database Edition in a 2 for 1 deal as well as an MSDN Premium Subscription) or the Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite (which includes the full suite of tools in addition to an MSDN Premium Subscription) to all Certified or Gold Certified Partners. This promotion is running currently and goes out until June 26th, 2009. After that, this opportunity is gone!

Here is another big benefit of this promotion… Not only are you saving up to 65% off the Estimated Retail Price of these products, this  imagepromotion is for the Open Value offering on these products, which means that you also get three years of upgrade protection included. So, when Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 becomes available, guess what? Yep, you get it included in this deal! In fact, because Open Value includes a full three years of Upgrade Protection (and all eligible Software Assurance benefits), any new version of the product that is released during that timeframe, you receive without having to purchase anything else. So not only do you save BIG today, your savings keep on coming for the next three years. But remember, you only have until June 26th to take advantage of this offer!

Ready to learn more about this offer or how you can take advantage of it? Head on out to the Microsoft U.S. Visual Studio Team System Promotion for Partners page to get all of the details. For those not completely familiar with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System or who want to see exactly what is included in each of the editions listed above, you can find out all of the information out on the Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 page.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
