Q: (from Jake)
As I push to close business for the end of Microsoft’s fiscal year, are there any promotions in market now that the Big Easy and Cloud Easy have lapsed?
Thanks for your efforts and thanks for asking! “YES” we do have a June 2013 promotion announced Friday of last week and retroactively applies to June 1st running through June 30th:
