Thanks a lot! I'll take $20 off a pre-order of Borderlands 2.

Note: It looks like it's a 4+GB download. So might take a while if you have slower internet.

How long does it take to do the evaluation?

I got this last week. Just start the download. It even failed out on my Acer NetBook. I figured I wouldn't get the credit, but sure enough a few days later they emailed a code for it. Never finished the download let alone evaluated it! Got 1600 xbox points with the credit!

This is a full System Center trial. If you don't have the requirements for Windows Server, this isn't for you. This isn't something you just throw on your Facebook machine. You have to go through the Virtual Labs for System Center for this to be valid.

So, you got 1600 Microsoft points in addition to the $20 credit or just the points?

vote-for3vote-against

I used the credit to get the points.

it says "enter promo code CLOUD" in the first step.
did you do that? I don't see any place to put in the code.

@clintschaefer:
In theory then you could use multiple accounts for this, no? I have no intention on doing that, just out of curiosity though.

Great way to get people to use something they will never want or will delete soon after. MS sucks, Xbox is the best thing they have.

@allhighruler: Are you on here because the PS3 has NO GAEMS?

There are a limit of 5000 $20 credits, according to the rules.

edit: And I don't think I entered a promo code or had an option to do so. :(

So I take it this isn't for Mac users?

Time for my Windows Vista VM to actually come in handy!

All I can get to is a place to enter my business address/info. Am I doing it wrong?

@tom84: I didn't see anywhere to put in a promo code either. Cancelled the install halfway through. (It was a slow dl anyway, but not on my end.)

vote-for1vote-against

Okay, I feel like an idiot, where do I enter said code?

vote-for1vote-against

@karmum: Sure try it, I don't see why not!

Note that you're also signing the agreement that states you are an IT professional when you sign up etc.

For those who might feel badly about lying on these forms etc. that might be a factor. I'm also 75% certain they've exhausted their 5000 codes, which is why there's no promo code entry spot any more.

Same, could not enter promo code, I really don't understand why they haven't taken this page down if they're out of codes because at this point it's semi-false advertising. While it's true the rules are stated, it is also their responsibility to take down the contest in a timely manner, and it appearing to have been over nearly 8 hours ago, I think they've had more than enough time to change a web page.

I tried sending them an email, we'll see if it gets me anywhere. Golden rule, complaining gets you everywhere.

@chhaylatte: Since people didn't actually have to install, and one person here reported they didn't even have to download it, I don't see why it wouldn't work for a Mac.

frikkin frakkin schimmikin agh! No Deal!

vote-for1vote-against

I wrote an email to them and told them that I had signed up and they told me that the code would be sent to me within three days. Sounds good.

vote-for1vote-against

I never got to enter a promo code, but I got an e-mail with my $20 code! Worked for me. I did install though... I'm a PC geek and was curious.

vote-for1vote-against

Got code tried code for xbox 360 points didn't work now im on hold with microsoft. They are not being to helpful.

vote-for1vote-against

Just got an email with and Updated Code that did work. Got the $20 promotion code and got 1,600 microsoft points for free. Thanks for the heads up!
