Microsoft on Monday announced it had discounted the first 25 seats of Microsoft 365 (M365) Business Premium by 25% when purchased by new commercial customers through Nov. 30.
Citing “Small Business Saturday,” an American Express-created promotional event that this year falls on Nov. 28, Microsoft said it was reducing Business Premium’s per-user per-month fee from $20 to $15. The lower price will apply to a subscription’s first year only, pegging the savings at $60 per user. If a customer maxed out the allowed seats, they would save a total of $1,500 during that year.
“Microsoft 365 Business Premium includes advanced security, designed to protect devices and data from proliferating cyberthreats — all while keeping IT complexity to a minimum, so business owners can keep their companies protected even without a dedicated IT staff,” Kady Dundas, senior director for Microsoft 365, asserted in a Nov. 23 post to a company blog.
