GIVEAWAY 2: 20 Percent Off MS Exam Vouchers Worldwide

No fooling. These vouchers are good anywhere in the world. But you have to let me know where you are at, as they are region-specific when generated.

Since August has been unofficially dubbed “Gear To Get Your Butt in Gear” month here at the Funcave, ALL the giveaways reflect some aspect of that idea. That idea being, basically, it’s time to get off your duff and get busy making whatever you want to happen actually happen, Cap’n.

And since there’s no time like the present for getting yourself in gear, we’re launching Giveaway 2 in advance of the official Giveaway launch date of August 17.

Giveaway 2 is all about learning. Specifically, IT learning to brush up your (or your staff’s) skills to make you (or your company) more current, more marketable, and more effective.

What’s the the giveaway? Vouchers good for up to 20% off MS exams at authorized Prometric testing Centers! As a bonus, these same vouchers are also good for 40% off corresponding MeasureUp practice tests.

Although the vouchers don’t actually expire until June 30, 2010, this giveaway ends at 11:59p on August 26. Why? Because on August 27, 2009, any new vouchers issued will be good for only 10% off exams. Which means once our stock of 20% vouchers are gone, they’re gone!

So don’t dawdle if you want in on this. Want to give one to each of your staffers? Go ahead, request enough for your whole posse.

Yes, this is a worldwide offer, but because discount codes are country/region specific, I have to know where in the world you’ll be taking the exam. So be sure to include that in your contact information when prompted. And, the discounts may vary by region. Check the update section below for details.

As with all our giveaways, all you have to do is complete a super short survey, and I’ll shoot you over as many vouchers as you indicate. Which means…if you don’t finish the survey completely AKA giving your contact info, then there’s no way you can win anything. If I can’t contact you, how am I going to get any loot to you?

If you haven’t entered our first giveaway yet, there’s still time to finish the survey! MSPU books on Managed Services and Sales & Marketing are on the line. And for every survey you finish, you get ANOTHER chance to win any active giveaway through the end of August!

Giveaways like…

  • Microsoft Office 2007 Professional
  • Windows 7 Ultimate
  • HTC Touch
  • SMB Nation Fall 2009 Pass

The earlier you enter and the more surveys you complete, the better your chances of winning!

UPDATE: I missed the small print that said “Discounts may vary by country.” In the interest of full disclosure, here’s the list of countries that can receive 20% discount vouchers through August 26…

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Brunai Darussalam

  2. Hey Mike…

    Thanks man. I have been busy, and in all the best ways to be busy. Lots of travel too, as you can kinda tell from the posts.

  3. I have completed the survey yesterday (24th) and waiting for the voucher. I am planing to take 70-660: Windows Internals by next month so I could save some.

    I sent you an e-mail asking for a clarification on your country/region. UK is not a valid choice. As soon as you send that to me via e-mail (don’t post it here, because I check comments rather infrequently), you’ll get the discounts you requested straight away.
