Yes time is flying and we are almost in the middle of May. It means we now have less than 3 short weeks to take the advantage of this great offer. In March, I have blogged about the details of current SMB Advantage. You can see that blog post here.
Just to quickly remind you the basics;
See the list of eligible products, Terms & Conditions and claim your subsidy, please visit https://www.microsoftincentives.com/SMBAdvantage/
I see in this posting you specifically call out "no exceptions" to the deadline for registering these purchases within 15 days of purchase, but we would like to write a letter to someone in a leadership position who could consider an exception request. We have
worked with the SMB promotion support team to no avail; they have been steadfast in their determination to enforce the 15-day limitation. In our case we believed the responsibility for registering the purchases was on the Microsoft partner (Dell), and belatedly
realized the responsibility actually rested with the consumer/purchaser. We submitted the claim at the 30-day mark. A check was sent to us, and we forwarded it to Dell as payment for services rendered in conjunction with our deployment of Office 365. Microsoft
subsequently canceled the check, and now Dell is coming to us for payment. We feel this honest misunderstanding should qualify for an exception, but as I said, the support team has been firm. To whom can we send a formal letter requesting further consideration?
