Is it Better To Purchase Online Services Under an Enterprise Agreement?

Microsoft recently announced that they were reducing prices of their online service for Enterprise Agreement clients.  Essentially this amounted to a 15% discount across the board on the regular online E plans.  In my opinion, this change was long overdue while it finally builds a programmatic discount between retail pricing and Enterprise Agreement pricing that is significant.  Previously it was only pennies on the dollar, for example the E3 plan was $20 retail and $19.40 on the Enterprise Agreement, a 2% savings.  We are happy to see that these discounts are becoming standardized for clients.  Discounting on the new items will happen for clients as they add cloud to their EA agreement or they renew their agreement with cloud product.

Effective September 1, 2013, Microsoft has reduced the cost on Office 365 Full USL (User Subscriber License) for Enterprise Agreement (EA) customers.

EA SKUs impacted by the USL Price Reduction include Full, Transition, & Step-up USLs:

E1, E3, E4, Exchange Online Plan 1 and 2, Lync Online Plan 1 and 2, SharePoint Online Plan  1 and 2, SharePoint Online Plan 1 and 2 (both with Yammer), K1 Suite
