Revisiting how to get your Technet benefits that are now included in your Action pack

Step one — go here find your Technical contact ID

I blanked it out for security reasons but it should look similar to this

2.  Next step — go to Technet site and enter your Technical ID and the email associated with that.

You may activate your TechNet for Action Pack subscription by completing the following steps:
1. Visit the TechNet site.

2. Sign in as a first time user with your Windows Live ID associated with your Microsoft Action Pack Solution Provider subscription.
3. Enter your contact information and Benefit Access Number (Technical Contact ID**)
4. Accept the agreement to complete registration.
**To find your Technical Contact ID, sign into the Partner Membership Center:

Click on the Requirements and Assets tab and select Assign Contact Roles (your Technical Contact ID will be listed next to your name). At this page you can also add and change technical contacts within your organization

One Thought on “Revisiting how to get your Technet benefits that are now included in your Action pack

    I renewed my TechNet a couple of weeks before I needed to, so it’s just outside the 30-day money-back window, and MS tell me there’s no chance of a refund now that TechNet is included in the Action Pack. So I now have a compeltely redundant TechNet subscription running till 30 April 2011.

    Anyone had a more positive response from MS? (I’m in the UK if that makes a difference).

    I’ll be renewing at the last minute in future.
