Today I decided to buy the VMUG Advantage Membership. The membership is around for a while now but for some reason; I never cared to take a good look at it. It provides some great resources and discounts, and since I plan to go to VMworld, get some certifications and play around in the homelab this year, I thought: why not...
VMUG Advantage is the best way to gain the technical skills to accelerate your success with exclusive access to 365-day evaluation licenses for 15+ VMware solutions, 20-35% discounts on VMware training and certifications, $100 off VMworld registration and more.by https://www.vmug.com/membership/vmug-advantage-membership

I'm looking forward to playing around with a licensed environment in my lab and also with VCF - sweet! And getting the 20% discount on exams: the exams in the Netherlands are € 211.00, and with 20% off it should be € 168.80 (so that's a € 42.20 discount), very nice. Also: Test Drive looks interesting. I'll take a look and perhaps do a blog post on that one.
AND I WAS LUCKY: apparently if you use the promo code: 'ADVNOW' you'll get a discount of 10% - so it was $180.00 ~ €161,95 for me now!
So grab one yourself: https://www.vmug.com/membership/vmug-advantage-membership
