Big Easy is Back

Microsoft is bringing back its popular Big Easy promotion for the month of June in an end-of-year push to increase revenues for Windows Server 2008 R2, Exchange 2010 and Office 2010.

The latest version is called Big Easy 4.1. The idea of the promotion is to enable solution sales by offering increasing rebates to customers when they buy Microsoft products from different product groups. The more groups customers purchase products from, the higher their rebate.

The best part about the rebates is that they’re made out to the partner of the customer’s choice. The rebate lasts for 90 days and can be used for hardware, software or services. I’ve got a lot more detail in a news story about it here I’ll also be moderating a Webcast with some Microsoft executives and a partner June 3 at 11 a.m. PT. You can register here.
