Microsoft is currently running a promotion through May 31, 2011 that lets you save you up to 50% off your first year payment on Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 for new purchases through the Open Value Subscription program, without having to have any prior version of Microsoft Office at all.
Use this "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 Up-to-Date Promotion" to drive incremental revenue and Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 upgrades for your small- and medium-business (SMB) customers.
Here's how it works:
"Customers who sign a new Open Value Subscription or Open Value Subscription for Government agreement and are acquiring Office Professional Plus 2010 up-to-date (UTD) subscription license and Software Assurance packs get up-to-date savings of up to 50% on the first annual payment on Office Professional Plus 2010 UTD subscription licenses. What this means quite simply is, everyone can qualify for the up-to-date discount of up to 50% off the first year payment for Office Professional Plus 2010, regardless if you own an existing version of Microsoft Office or not when you take advantage of this promotion," explain Eric Ligman.
Just remember that with the current promotion, you are not required to have a previous version of Microsoft Office to qualify, unlike in the prior promotion where you did.
