The Process Has Begun
Microsoft has decided to put a break on paper certificates and wallet cards. Now we can’t receive our MS certificates through mail for free. From 1st july 2009 you’ll have to pay shipping fee to get your hard earned certificates.
To reduce the company’s carbon footprint and impact on the environment, starting June 1, 2009, MCP certificates will transition from traditional paper to digital certificates.
Beginning early July 2009, paper certificates can be ordered at shipping & handling costs only.
What this means is starting July 1, 2009, they will no longer ship Welcome Kits. You will be able to still order a paper certificate for a shipping & handling fee and the wallet cards are going digital early August.
Well what we could say…cost cutting everywhere…
