Microsoft Extends BPOS Subsidy to April 18
The Microsoft high-value promotion that returns up to 68 percent of first-year Business Productivity Online Suite revenues to U.S. partners got an extension for most of April.
MicrosoftSMB tweeted Monday, "The deadline for [Microsoft's] Business Productivity Online Services reward has been extended to 4/18!" The BPOS Customer Rewards Offer had been scheduled to expire April 1.
This is the deal I highlighted here earlier this month that gives customers subsidy checks made out to their favorite Microsoft partners for hardware, software or services. The check is for half the value of a first-year BPOS subscription of 5 to 25 seats (between $300 and $1,500). If the partner is also the partner of record earning 18 percent first-year BPOS margins, that's a 68 percent margin from Microsoft for the year. The deal also applies to Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Office Communications Online and deskless editions of the products.
Microsoft posted subsidy details here.
