If you work for a largish organisation and have a corporate email address, enter your details in the link to see if you qualify.

https://www.microsofthup.com/hupuk/home.aspx?country_id=GB is the link, it may need to be entered manually as it seems to redirect to msstore from HotUKDeals.

Available for both PC and Mac users, this is the Office suite and not the 365 subscription service you usually see.

For a single machine.

Comes with WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT, OUTLOOK, ONE NOTE and SKYPE FOR BUSINESS (pc only)

You can also add PROJECT PRO 2016 or VISIO PRO 2016 for an additional £9.95 each.

I used search, only ones I found were for 365 version. That or a version of this from 2013.

...because site rules allow it, I would think - something about a new deal within 2/4 weeks or something like that.

I get this through my employers and have done for my last few jobs fortunately - it's a great deal, just a shame it doesn't extend to operating systems too (though they are pretty cheap anyway).

Why is everyone being so arsey about this? Until I saw this, I didn't bother to check whether my employer was eligible, and so have just purchased at this fantastic price.

I, for one, say thank you, dazzapat.

This so p*sses me off - most people in the UK are now either self-employed or are carers... or, well, there is a huge number of people who are not eligible for this.

I know uni lecturers/profs earning close between 50K to 100K who have whinged about the small amount they pay for Office cheap for 4 years.

When 2016 originally was released a year or so ago, this was posted here and went hot to 2173 degrees. People are less interested now it seems.

It might get posted more often as mods will delete if its posted with 4 weeks of it been posted. However can't remember it been posted for a while.

Don't forget if you have kids many schools have free access to 365. My daughter had the email at school and didn't tell us because we had 2010 :)
#18
worth noting that , unless HUP has changed recently, that the licence is only for 2 installs. if you are unlucky with machines/hard drives you can quickly go through two installations.

Once you've expired the licence you cant buy again unless you have a second work email address to use as the system will refuse a second sale to any email address. i wanted the win and osx versions and had to use a colleagues email address to purchase the second one.

Also, if the associated employer no longer subscribes to the program, your usage rights are immediately revoked and the use of the software is no longer legal...

Now my company is in and out of the scheme.Ive got it three times. 2010 for my old desktop, 2013 for my main desktop and 2016 for my Macbook Pro. And at no time where they ever seen as "not legal" - how the hell do you work that out ? Theres NO time limit when you buy it, and you've paid for it. Its YOURS in perpetuity

As per the FAQ on the HUP homepage:
The functionality of the products available via the Home Use Program matches those of retail versions, and provide all the benefits you would receive if you bought it at the store. However, your right to use this software is tied to your organisation's continued Software Assurance coverage and your continued employment with that organisation. Your employer will notify you if their Software Assurance coverage expires.

I have never read anywhere anyone being so - it wouldn't even stand up in court for God's sake.

Two issues here: You asked about the legality of the licence once the Employer opts out of the programme. That is answered above. You aren't entitled to use the software acquired under the HUP. This isn't a click-through licence so is presumably legally enforceable. The onus is on the employer to make that clear. You don't buy software. You licence its use under the terms set out by the licensor (MS) to your employer.

As for being locked out; my understanding is that these licences are just retail licences so I don't think MS is suddenly going to audit all licences on its server and throw a switch to kill the newly illicit installations, so in practical terms the legality isn't going to matter too much.

None of which changes the FACT from my comment. Whether or not you are 'locked out' has no bearing on the legality of use.

Unfortunately, you will choose to interpret the statement however you like but ultimately you are buying the rights to use this software which is valid ONLY whilst your organisation subscribes to the relevant program. If your organisation ceases their subscription (or you leave the organisation) then it is very much illegal to use the software you *believe* you have BOUGHT.

You are miss-informing people.

No I'm not. You are inventing restrictions where they don't exist.
Essentially you're saying whatever software you buy, the rights to use them can be taken away AFTER you've bought it - which is beyond daft. It's like saying you buy a football for your son, and the makers can come round your house and take it back without recompense.
As I said - beyond daft

This will be my last comment in the interest of making sure people are informed as I cannot be arsed but if you do a simple search for Microsoft Home Use Program and pick one of the websites from the many organisations offering this, you'll find the following clause so yes, the rights can very much be revoked:

http://media.gm.ca/content/dam/Media/microsites/product/canada_retiree/Documents/en/Discounts/Microsoft_Home_Use.pdf

When does the program end? What happens if I leave the company?
Your license for Home Use Program software is valid as long as you maintain your current employment and
GM maintains its Software Assurance coverage with Microsoft. If you leave the company, GM discontinues its
Software Assurance coverage, or you are no longer a user of the licensed software as part of your
employment, your license terminates and you should discontinue use of the software. GM will notify you if any
of these conditions apply.

You may think its 'beyond daft' but it doesn't make it wrong...

As I said, you'll believe what you want so, for that reason... I'm out.

You can get certain number of free (365)install's as part of an employer initiative. (works as long as employer is part of ms program)

Then you can also buy a cheap version of office 2016 if your employer is part of initiative. This you can keep.

Pretty sure you're 'mass debating' about separate issues dude.

Not true. The discounted full installations of Office 2016 are also time limited to either:

a) Cessation of your employment with employer in the scheme
b) Cessation of employer's participation in scheme

whichever is the sooner. I have one and this rider came with the key directly from Microsoft. There was no option for 365 as my employer does not offer that. One key, one installation on one machine for a tenner. HUP terms apply. This has always been the case as you will see if you look back on previous HUP deals posted here in the past.

From the FAQ for the £9.95 deal

Are the Home Use Program products different from the retail version?

The functionality of the products available via the Home Use Program matches those of retail versions, and provide all the benefits you would receive if you bought it at the store. However, your right to use this software is tied to your organisation's continued Software Assurance coverage and your continued employment with that organisation. Your employer will notify you if their Software Assurance coverage expires.

For 2013 version I believe you could install on 3 devices and now only one install is allowed.

With the 2013 version:

1. Is there a MS source that can be referenced to confirm that it allowed 3 User licence?
2. Is there an easy way to determine which machine has which license?
3. How can you transfer a licence from one machine to another?
