VMUG Advantage Homelab Group Buy/Renewals Discount for 2023!

One of my favorite features of VMUG is the community (or rather the vCommunity)! This is your opportunity to be a part of something bigger, and you will get a discount at the same time!

The VMUG Advantage Homelab Group Buy Discount is now available. If you fill out the survey (linked below), you will get access to a discount code for a minimum of 12% and up to 15% if the total number of participants goes above 300. Why ever would I want this, you ask? Check out what a VMUG Advantage membership gives you:

  • 365-day Evaluation Licenses for:
    • vSphere, vCloud Foundation, vSAN, NSX, vRealize, Workstation, Horizon, and more!
  • 20-35% discount on training
  • This 15% discount is only offered a few time during the year, so this is exclusive! They will not see another 15% for a while.
  • Access to “test drive
  • Discount of $100 to VMware Explore (not stackable)
  • See full list of Advantage Benefits here!

The VMUG Advantage Program comes at a cost of $200 (USD). If the participation pushes the discount to 15%, that means the price ends up being $170 (USD) for a full year. If you have just one training course planned per year, the VMUG Advantage Program will have already paid for itself (20% discount on a $3000+ USD training course). This also applies for new or renewing members globally, not just in the US, of course! Here is a breakdown of the discount you will get based on the total number of folks signing up:


If more than 1,000 people sign up, VMUG HQ will raffle off some cool VMUG Advantage swag too!
