I got this email from MS and it says:

Just go to your favorite retail or online store and purchase a standalone, full package Windows Vista Ultimate product, full or upgrade version, and we will match that with a second, complimentary Windows Vista Ultimate Upgrade product key. We will honor a copy you purchased, and first activated, after December 1, 2007. Hurry! This offer expires on January 15, 2008.

To take advantage of this great offer, simply follow these steps:

Go to http://www.windowsvistaevalcomp.com.
Sign in using the same Windows Live ID that you used to download the beta or release candidate versions of Windows Vista.
Follow the instructions to locate the Product ID on the computer running the qualifying copy Windows Vista Ultimate that you recently purchased.
Enter that Product ID into the online form.
We will then provide you with a Windows Vista Ultimate upgrade key, so you can install Windows Vista Ultimate onto a second machine. (The second machine must have Windows XP or a version of Windows Vista already installed in order to upgrade)

Maybe you know some one you can split the cost of one copy of Vista Ultimate (to freaking expensive imo) and get the 2nd one. I know Circuit City has Vista Ultimate in their add this week and it comes with a $75 gift card. Ultimate is expensive, but this sweetens up the deal some.
