50% Discount on Windows XP & Office Upgrades

For the first time ever, Microsoft is expanding the 50% off Up-To-Date discount to include TWO prior versions on both Microsoft Office Professional and Microsoft Windows worldwide and this offer will be available until June 30, 2010. What this means is that millions of customers running older versions of Microsoft Office Professional and Microsoft Windows will now be able to take advantage of the Up-To-Date discount available through the Open Value Subscription Program to get 50% off their Year 1 payments!

So who qualifies for this offer?
 For Microsoft Office Professional Plus:

·         Before the Office 2010 launch: Companies with OEM, Retail, or Volume licenses for Microsoft Office 2007 Professional, Office 2003 Professional, or Office XP Professional

·         After the Office 2010 launch: Companies with OEM, Retail, or Volume licenses for Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 or Office 2003 Professional

For Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Upgrade:

·         Companies with OEM, Retail, or Volume licenses for Windows 7 Professional, Windows Vista Business or Windows XP Professional

What you get:

·         50%* off your 1st year OVS payment for Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Upgrade or Microsoft Office Professional for every qualifying N-1 or N-2 license you have.

·         As an example, in the U.S., this means you would be paying $35.00 for a Windows 7 Professional Upgrade and/or $91.00 for Office 2007 Professional Plus in year 1, plus receiving all of the Software Assurance benefits (such as an automatic upgrade to Office 2010 when it launches, Office Home Use Rights, and much more) for that price!

From January 1, 2010 – June 30, 2010:

  • Anyone with licenses for Microsoft Office XP Professional CAN take advantage of the 50%* off UTD discount because the UTD discount is being extended to include two prior versions and your version of Microsoft Office Professional is two versions old.  (Current version is Microsoft Office 2007, one version old is Office 2003, and two versions old is Office XP). 

  • For Microsoft Windows, anyone with licenses of Microsoft Windows XP Professional CAN take advantage of the 50%* off UTD discount because the UTD discount is being extended to include two prior versions and your version of Microsoft Windows is two versions old.  (Current version Microsoft Windows 7, one version old is Microsoft Windows Vista Business, and two versions old is Windows XP Professional)
