Microsoft Company Store F&F invites w/ $5 off first purchase

UPDATE 7/20/2018: I've selected posters for this year's Friends & Family program and am waiting to them to get back to me with contact info to get registered in the system.

 

Original post:
I'm giving away Friends & Family invites to the Microsoft Company Store, which allows you to buy up to $250 in downloadable software (including XBL) at employee prices. You'll also get $5 off your first purchase. The account is good until June 2017.

Post here if interested. The software you buy is not for resale or trade and I also am not allowed to give it to anyone who works for a governmental agency (incl public school teachers, PD or FD, sorry), so I'll be preferring posters with some legit history on CAG who aren't obvious flippers. I will PM you for your name and email address. UPDATE: A CAGer (kcobra22) found out that you need to send me a last name that matches your billing info b/c you need to set up billing when you register an account on the store and they don't let you edit that field.

Attached is a screenshot showing a sample of what's available in the store under Xbox. You can buy Windows or Office software, but I figure most CAGs would want games.

This sounds amazing! I used to do their retail employee training, experzone, and have really missed it since I stopped working at a place that sells their stuff. Great deals!!

I'd be interested. I'd buy KI: Definitive in a heartbeat at that price if I didn't just get it during the Black Friday sale.

I'm interested as well. That's a great price on xbl subscription.

Yeah, by and far the best deal on there, I think. Especially given the current sale.

 

Recore is kind of disappointing since that was the Black Friday price, but the Forza stuff is also pretty cheap.

 

I just wish the Ultimate Edition included the upcoming expansions, though I'd be surprised if the Expansion pass didn't make its way to the store.

Does it work for Canadians?

There's no location restriction to use the store, but all sales will be in USD and whether stuff like XBL codes are US-only, US/Canada, or work anywhere, I don't know.

I'm alright with all of that. I'd love to sign up.

All invites claimed. If some people don't end up using their invite to register, that may free up some spots.

If any invites are unclaimed and become available again, I'd appreciate being considered. Thanks for sharing with the CAG community, OP.

I wonder why that is and how they would find out.

I know our County gives 3 or 5 licenses to each employee for Office, but now I'm curious if they have any other Microsoft perks.

My guess would be it might possibly considered a bribe and they don't want to deal with litigation if anything comes from it?
