With Oracle Support Rewards, the more that you use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), the more you save. Customers earn $0.25 to $0.33 in rewards for every $1 spent on OCI. Then apply those rewards to reduce your tech software license support bill, even down to zero1.
Earn rewards every month
Simply sign or renew a Universal Credits order to earn rewards you can track in the OCI console. The program entitles customers to earn and use support rewards for the length of their services period. Support Rewards is a contractual obligation Oracle guarantees for the length of the customer UCM contract, which may be extended by the customer at any time.
Get more value out of OCI with Oracle Support Rewards. Now, it's even easier for Oracle customers to reduce their technology software license support bill—even down to zero1.
It's simple. For every dollar spent on OCI, you'll earn $0.25 in Oracle Support Rewards. And if you’re an Unlimited License Agreement (ULA) customer, you’ll earn $0.33 for every dollar.Reduce your technology support bill
Use your earned Oracle Support Rewards to reduce your technology support bill for products such as Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic, and more.Combine with other support programs
Oracle Support Rewards is available for all Oracle customers with Tech License Support and new Universal Credit orders, including renewals. It complements existing customer programs that convert application support bills to cloud app subscriptions (Customer to Cloud), provide flexible OCI discounts (Universal Credits), provide license portability (Bring Your Own License), and offer expert support for migration at no cost (Oracle Cloud Lift).
Let’s say you start with a $1M annual Oracle technology support bill and spend $2M on OCI for two new workloads. In this scenario, you’ll earn $500k in Oracle Support Rewards, reducing your annual bill by half.
What if you identify four new workloads to run on OCI? No problem. With an existing $1M Oracle technology support bill, plus $4M additional OCI spend, you'll earn $1M in Oracle Support Rewards, cutting your bill to $0.
For this example, let's start with $1.5M annual Oracle technology support bill. You identify eight new workloads to move to OCI Dedicated Region and spend $6M. In this scenario, you’ll earn $1.5M in Oracle Support Rewards, and reduce your support bill to $0.
