OFFER: Windows 7 Extended Support Update Promotion with Windows E5 & Microsoft 365 E5

<taken from Win7 End of Support whitepaper>

imageStarting June 1st, EA and EAS customers with active subscription licenses to Windows 10 Enterprise E5, Microsoft 365 E5, or Microsoft 365 E5 Security (as of December 31, 2019) will get Windows 7 Extended Security Updates for Year 1 as a benefit. With this limited-time promotion, customers have more options to continue receiving Windows 7 security updates after end of support.

The promo runs from June 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019.

It’s probably best to read the documentation on the offer as there’s a LOT of detail behind this promo, with answers to questions like:

  • Why are we launching this promo now?
  • What are the qualifying subscriptions?
  • Is the promo available for all Windows E5 and Microsoft 365 E5 SKUs including Government (Microsoft 365 G5) and EDU (A5)?
  • Are existing subscriptions grandfathered?
  • How will the promo be ordered and fulfilled starting 6/1?
  • Do customers have to maintain Windows E5/Microsoft 365 E5 throughout the ESU coverage period?
  • Do customers taking advantage of the promotion have the option to purchase additional years of ESU coverage?
