UPDATE: This promotion has expired. Please click here to see details on the current promotion.
UPDATE: This promotion ends on June 30, 2010 October 31, 2010.. and will still save you 25% on the newly named "TechNet Subscription Professional" (same price). Just substitute "TechNet Plus Direct" with "TechNet Subscription Professional" in all that you read below.
Whenever I present a live TechNet Event, I ask my audience to raise their hands if they are a TechNet subscriber. Usually about 1/2 to 2/3 of the audience raises their hand. Considering that this is typically a Microsoft-friendly audience, I'm a little shocked that there aren't more hands going up. The TechNet Subscription is such a great resource for IT Pros, for these reasons:
For all of those reasons (Heck, for any ONE of those reasons), a TechNet Plus subscription is worth the yearly investment.
"Cool, Kevin. But how do I save $$$s?"
For new subscriptions, from now until June 30, 2010, you can save 25% on the TechNet Plus Direct subscription. What would have cost you $349 will now only cost only $261.75.
"That's nearly $100!"
"Is this worldwide, or U.S. only, or what?"
This is for residents of the U.S. only.
“Why new subscriptions only? Why not a discount renewals?”
Renewals are already automatically discounted, even more than you get with this code. Besides.. we’re honestly trying to promote TechNet Subscriptions to those who haven’t yet benefited from it. We’re pretty confident that if you try it, you’ll see enough value in it to renew your subscription.
Write down or copy this promotion code to your clipboard: TNITQ404 (That's four-zero-four. Not the letter O.)
Then GOTO the TechNet Subscription Center (CLICK HERE), and use the code to get your savings.
“If you weren’t a Microsoft employee, Kevin, would you buy this for yourself?”
Without hesitation, YES. I use the software I download so much; for personal education as well as testing, $261.75 is a small price to pay for the value I receive. Absolutely.
“Hey Kevin, didn’t you have some other codes we were using before?”
Yes. The “TMSAM08” and “TNITE04” codes are no longer valid. You need to use this new TNITQ404 code now.
are there any codes for Canada? or does microsoft treat Canada and U.S as one in this regard.
Would be great to take advantage of this, but it appears that the code isn't working right now. I keep getting an error page when I try.
Where are you located? It will only work for people in the U.S., I'm afraid. I tried it just now and it appears to be working.
Send me an e-mail (use the contact link above) if you're still having trouble.
I just used the code to purchase the TechNet plus with $87.25 saving.
Awesome! I hope you find it as useful as I do!
