How to Use Microsoft’s Big Easy Offer 2011 and Get Rebate Funds for Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Email | Print

Here are some details on a great promotion from Microsoft for companies that are thinking about buying Microsoft Dynamics CRM licenses*, including a server license and user CALs.  As an example, when I ran the rebate calculator (link below) for a 5-user system of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the subsidy check would be $1,120.  If you redeemed that with us, that would cover the cost of our popular 2-day Microsoft Dynamics CRM Sales & Marketing class - not bad! 

Typically, when our clients are looking at purchasing Microsoft Dynamics CRM, they consider adding other Microsoft products at the same time, like Office 2010, SQL Server, or Exchange.  With the Big Easy Offer - the more you buy, the more you get back in subsidy funds to help offset your consulting and training services.  Our clients at The TM Group have been taking advantage of the Big Easy offers for years – and it really pays off!  Read below for specific details and links to the rebate sites:

What is Microsoft’s Big Easy Offer 2011?

The Big Easy Offer 2011 is a popular rebate program that runs from May 2, 2011 through June 30, 2011.  The offer gives you choices on Microsoft products and solutions that fit your needs, including purchases of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. For every qualifying product you purchase, like CRM 2011, Office 2010, or SQL Server, Microsoft pays you partner subsidy funds that can be used with a Microsoft Partner of your choice to help with the implementation of your Microsoft solution including software, hardware and services.

Now you can find the right solution for your organization, while earning money back on your purchase in the form of a partner subsidy. For every qualifying product you purchase, Microsoft pays you partner subsidy funds to purchase more products and services from the Microsoft Partner of your choice.

What is a Subsidy?
A subsidy is a check made payable to the Microsoft partner of your choice. This subsidy can be used to enrich and implement your Microsoft solution. The subsidy allows you to purchase additional products or services from the Microsoft partner of your choice thus lowering your Total Cost of Ownership.

The Big Easy Offer 2011 includes these products:

  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM
  • Microsoft Office
  • SharePoint Server
  • SQL Server
  • Exchange Server
  • Lync Server
  • Forefront
  • Windows Server products
  • Visio
  • Project
  • Expression
  • Visual Studio

The Microsoft licensing programs included in the Big Easy Offer are:

  • Open License
  • Open Value
  • Open Value Subscription

 

How do I take advantage of the Big Easy Offer 2011?

  • Make a qualifying purchase between May 2, 2011 and June 30, 2011.
  • Redeem your purchase within 30 days of purchase date at http://www.microsoftincentives.com/BigEasy/redeem.aspx.
  • Receive your partner subsidy check from Microsoft.
  • Spend your subsidy funds with your Microsoft partner upon receipt. Please note that subsidy funds expire after 90 days of the check issue date

*Note – the Big Easy Offer is for customers who plan on owning their CRM licenses, vs. using the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online subscription model - check out the hot $34-user/per month, $200 per user/rebate program for those details.
