Under the VMware discount program, customers get points for making purchases, and the more points they accrue, the larger the discount. It kicks in with a 4% VMware discount once a customer earns 250 points (total spending of $25,000), and it goes as high as 12% for customers that earn 1,750 points (total spending of $175,000).
