Hey folks, sorry for the late update. Some backend changes were made to alleviate this issue but I believe it doesn’t solve it for everyone yet. Let me go get some details and come back with a better update. Thanks!
An update - we use EA with Azure and in the past have always had to have completely separate accounts for the MPN Azure benefits. Since changing to the new Partner Center we can assign our Azure benefits to an organizational account. It is still a partner benefit and when there are overages they will go on a credit card. As well, we have the $100/mth credit and $6000K/Year as well - we can't assign both to the same account or combine them so we have to set up two separate accounts to use them and it's a hassle.
The ideal will be to simply let us apply these benefits to an existing subscription or, failing that, let us use our EA rates for overages. Of course, the EA program is changing and the EA discounts seem to be going away :(
At the rate this has moved, I expect this will be resolved within three years. I note that the Microsoft employee who was going to go away for a quick check and report back hasn't bene seen since 2017.
We're in exactly the same position as Regan still - this makes for considerable overhead and difficulty and needs to be resolved. It's been well over a year since the last Microsoft comment on this.

Hi Corey, How is this investigation progressing? It has now been over four years.
