    Not too sure about this Raff. I let my sub expire a while back, just before they came up with all that 'partner' shenanigans. I'm considering signing up again in a couple of months, but not sure I'll even qualify for it (I don't do enough private/reselling work to be considered a 'partner' and haven't been a 'system builder' for five years)

    I would very much doubt that they even check that this is a real domain, let alone the content.

    There's one way to find out!

    No annoying hoops to jump through, but you have to download ISOs rather than have CDs shipped to you. I think it's slightly cheaper (in the US, anyway), but I'll have to confirm.

    Hi Raffaz,
    I've got a current TN sub and have just asked the Microsoft Online chat bod why the discount code doesn't work and they've told me to tell you to call this number 0800 281 221 to check the code.
    Cheers and Happy New Year.

    Remember, it's only pricier the first year. Renewals are cheaper, just like the Action Pack renewals.

    Well, ive just contacted the number and all they said is that they know about the code not working and to try it again in 24hrs (its already nearly 24hrs since i originally tried it). Piss poor service from MS, how long does it take to get a code working lol.

    Hi Raffaz,
    Don't know if you have got this sorted or not, but I've just tried the promotion code on Technets website and it is now working.
    Cheers

    Is this a US thing? I have paid the same price every year for my Actionpack; £200 +VAT

    Dunno; make sure you're buying a renewal and not a new Pack every year.
