The Cloud Easy Offer gives your customers choices on Microsoft Online solutions to fit their organization’s unique IT Productivity and investment requirements.

Customers who make a qualifying Online Services purchase earn money back, 15% of 1 year subscription in the form of a partner subsidy, which they can use towards additional Microsoft software, Online Services subscription or associated services. Meaning, Microsoft’s valued Reseller Partners benefit from downstream transactions from the customer.

Here’s how the Cloud Easy Offer works:

Partners can help their customers take advantage of this offer by following these simple steps:

1. Review list of qualifying Online Services in chart below or at

2. Purchase qualifying Online Services subscriptions between July 1, 2012 and September 30, 2012.

3. Qualified Organizations must successfully register their purchase(s) to redeem within thirty (30) days of purchase date to receive the partner subsidy funds.

You can help your customers by:

• Ensuring your customer submits their claim submission request within 30 days of the purchase date. Many partners offer to assist their customers with this process.

• Engaging the customer to ensure that they spend their partner subsidy funds within 90 days from the check issue date.
