How to check if your company mail id is eligible for free Microsoft certification?
I was getting pings and mails for getting discounts on Microsoft Certification from my colleagues and friends, so I have drafted below step-by-step instructions to claim your free exam by linking your corporate mail ID like email@example.com
Prerequisites: A valid Microsoft Account like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and other such Microsoft Account, even you can use your email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org ID’s as well. Recommend would be Microsoft Account ID.
Step 1: Select one of the any eligible exams (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/microsoft-build-cloud-skills-challenge-2020-free-certification-exam-offer#eligible-exams ) and click the “Schedule exam” button to begin the online registration process.
Step 2: Sign in to your existing Microsoft Certification Profile mail ID or if needed create one using a Microsoft Account.
Input your ID
Step 3: Once logged in, confirm details in your Certification Profile are accurate or create\update the profile.
Step 4: Click Save & Continue.
Step 5: Next page will land to “Exam Discount” Page.
Step 6: On the “Exam Discounts” page, enter the email that you used to register for an event (e.g. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step 7: If you are eligible for an exam discount, you will receive a verification email to the address you entered. You must enter the passcode you receive in the email to proceed. If you do not receive an email, you can resend the code.
Step 8: After entering the correct passcode, you will be asked to link your accounts. You MUST agree to link your accounts to receive a discount.
The next time you log in, if you are eligible for exam discounts for either of those accounts, the discounts will automatically be displayed. To remove an account, go to the Certification Dashboard and click “edit your certification profile”.
Step 9: You will see a discount pop up at the top. Choose the discount you want to claim and then continue to the checkout by clicking on the scheduled exam button.
Step 10: Follow steps on the subsequent screens and provide the required details to schedule your exam. During the checkout process, verify the total amount due is 0000.00 and submit the order.
