Buy Exam Vouchers on Amazon

Discounted exam vouchers can be used only at Pearson VUE testing centers.

MCPs, here's a little-known secret: You can buy exam vouchers at the online uber-shopping site Amazon.com for a 15-percent discount off the regular price. The offer isn't new; the vouchers have been selling via Amazon since the beginning of summer. Vouchers can be purchased in the U.S. and Canada only and are redeemable only at Pearson VUE testing centers on those areas. According to Amazon.com, the voucher ships in a CD jewel case.

Comments from those who bought vouchers through Amazon are full of complaints, typically citing the diluted savings from taxes and shipping. It's true that some states will charge tax (Washington, for example, where Amazon operates), but to save on shipping, purchasers need to specify "Super Saver Shipping" upon checkout.

The discount may not amount to much -- $106.25 as opposed to an MSRP of $125 -- but think of this as your chance to spend the difference on something inexpensive on your Amazon wishlist.

To buy a discounted voucher, go to Amazon.com and search for "certification voucher" or click here.
