Discounted Microsoft Exams Vouchers

scottishkiwiscottishkiwi Member Posts: 47 ■■□□□□□□□□
I was in doing my ITIL exam today and noticed on the reception desk of the exam centre they were offing discounted Pearson Vue exam vouchers for any Microsoft technical exam sat with them.

I was planning on doing my MCSA & MCSE at some point in the future and since the vouchers are valid for 12 months I am considering buying a few of them to use later.

My question to everyone here though is whether the price they are offering is good?

I've only sat my ITIL cert and doing Prince2 later this week, next on agenda is CompTIA exams so I'm not sure of the normal cost of these MS exams. Their website shows the normal costs as being NZD$221 (approx. £99 / US$150) while this offer they are offering would reduce the cost to NZD$129 (£58 / US$8icon_cool.gif.

The reduction is more than 40% so seems very attractive.. but wanted to run it past everyone here first. I wasn't planning on doing these for a while still but if you think this is a hard to beat offer then I'll buy a few of them.

    Yes the $80 is a nice offer seeing that they run for $150. GetCertified4Less runs something similar and you can check reviews out on the site. Just be weary when buying from a non-microsoft place because the expiration dates can get tricky.

    If you are a student (with a verifiable Uni email address), you can get them discounted right from Microsoft/Pearson. I am nearly a perpetual student, so I often times meet the criteria (though not right now).

    If they're a pearson vue center than I'd see no issue and the price is great. Like powerfool mentioned .edu email addresses get an even deeper discount, I think it was $67.

    I purchased 5 of these vouchers today after I came out of my A+ exam. Won't need the vouchers immediately since don't plan on doing any MS certs for a few months but they are valid for 12 months so all good.

    That's a great deal. Normally they only get that cheap when they are close to expiry.

    How can a student get an educational discounted voucher online? I can't seem to find the option on Microsoft or Pearson.

    On https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/ change your profile job function to student then it will ask for email to verify. After verifying you should be able to purchase vouchers at a pretty big discount.
