What should you do about the price increases?
Microsoft is raising the prices of its monthly subscriptions, however, there are two ways to continue buying Microsoft products and avoid the increase.
1. If a license expires before March 2022, renew it and you’ll remain on Microsoft’s current pricing plan.
2. If your license expires after March 2022, sign up to Microsoft’s promotional pricing and you can use the NCE to lock in your subscription costs for up to 36 months (subject to availability on multi-year subscriptions). This will enable you to improve revenue predictability and reduce licensing complexity.
