Over the last few months that we have been running this promotion I have seen subsidies for as little as $100 but for as much as $13K.  The more product groups the customer purchases from, the more cash they will get back.  Customers have been thrilled to be receiving this amount of money no matter the size.  In some cases the cash back has helped them to make the decision in purchasing now rather than waiting until later.  In addition to the Big Easy some purchase might be eligible for other rebates or incentives per product.  Many of these promotions can be grouped together to give your customer quite a deal.

Here are the details..

Q:  What is the Big Easy?

A:  Money back to your customer's to help them pay you (MS Partner) for additional software, hardware and SERVICES.  See http://www.microsoftincentives.com/BigEasy3/ for all the details.
