Default Re: Microsoft offering $100 Technet discount till July 3

I found a 15% discount coupon, used that. Came to about 200-smth euros. My brother wanted a new OS as well, so we can split the cost when W7 comes out next week.

I am not sure. I just saw it on HardOCP this morning. But IIRC you can buy licenses retail though if I were going to go for the PCMall deal I'd check with MS to see if they are an authorized reseller.

It looks like it is valid. The Technet website lists pcmall as an authorized reseller.

I actually went to the AU website and used crainger's code. Nice 40% discount, BUT because the dollar really isn't worth **** right now, it worked out to be around $244 USD aka same as the american deal.

If I did that it would have been cheaper but then my excuse (instead of my home country) would be gone. You can't pass an excuse that you thought it was only available in Australia... The US though, fully plausible...

Just FYI forget about the PCMall one listed in the link above. I was reading the thread on hardocp and it appears that version is for Charitable organizations or something. PCMall does have other versions available but I think they are regular price.

Good news the code still works. ::

Now I don't have to use Open Office anymore... Not that Open Office was bad. In fact, I'll keep it on my gaming PC. I just wish they had a better update system. MS really has them in that area.

I use 2003 and nothing above that. It's at work so I use it at home as well.
