Attempting to buy the Vista Family discount pack fails repeatedly

January 30, 2007 1:05 pm

After picking up the Vista Ultimate Signature Edition copy today, I wanted to spend some more money to get the Family Pack discount, so I can upgrade a few other PCs in the house.

Imagine my surprise when I was greeted with only this message after typing in the Product Key from the box I just bought this morning:


We’re sorry, the following error(s) have occurred:

No Offer Found

Bummer. I guess I won’t be spending another $100 for my two extra copies.

Even more curious is that there’s no way to contact Microsoft about problems with the order page. Maybe they don’t want my money?

This is a common occurrence according to the MS Vista newsgroup … hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Soon, its now midway through Feb and it’s still not fixed. I expect it will become available after the 90 days registration time has expired!!!

Care to comment?
