Not as good as the AO deal a few weeks back (£39) but this is the cheapest I've seen Home edition for a while even with the other Amazon offers.

Download and Boxed editions in the offer. Both are compatible with PC and Mac.

Obviously some people prefer the ultra cheap "deals" of OEM versions of the non-subscription office from eBay and the like, but for people wanting the fully licensed subscription Office 365 this seems, to me, to be a good deal.

I was just looking to see what I paid on Amazon on Dec 26th - £39.97 for 5 users so gone up £3.02.

Yes that was a very good deal last Christmas. Not seen anything as good since, although since then Microsoft have upped the official RRP of both Home (£79.99) and Personal (£59.99) along with many of their other products - blaming the currency exchange variations of course. So far Amazon's not upped their listed RRP unlike some other retailers.

Just picked up two of the boxed version of Home edition seeing as it's allowing 2 in the basket.

Pound will get stronger towards the end of the year but I doubt that the US companies will reduce their prices on 'Treasure Island'.

Just get a an OEM retail key off eBay for £2.50.
Sign up on official Microsoft office website, enter your key and you have a legitimate accepted license to use this software.
The key cannot be revoked as it's tied to your account and you get the "professional plus" version doing it that way.

There is no legitimate reason to obtain office through non OEM means due to the above, unlike Windows 10 which doesn't strictly tie you to the key in terms of absolute ownership in an online account.

Could you do this if you already have an active account/subscription?

I'm beginning to think Office 365 is worth getting overall now just in terms of having the 1Tb OneDrive element. Considered iCloud, but doesn't do enough, so paid for a small upgrade to 50Gb there for my needs.

Will go check the eBay options now.

£9.89 for a 5 user lifetime license. Call me a cynic, but can't see how these actually stay working indefinitely?

Although there is room to doubt, OEM keys work wonderfully. I've been using an OEM Windows 10 key from eBay for some time and it's still activated fine.

Windows 10 is a platform play they're not looking to make money out of Windows sales. Different to office.

I mean, they'd still crack down on non-legit keys i would think.

Same also applies to my OEM key of office.

Any deals or keys for existing subscriptions? I know the 5 user on Amazon is £42.99/yr today and was going to get that, but if anyone has a link to somewhere for existing subscriptions?

I managed to pick up a copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2016 with a 'Unused and unique genuine COA key' last week for £2.99.

The software installed and activated without problems, the apps show that it is an activated copy of the product. I guess only time will tell if Microsoft revoke the licence as I know these licences are only available through Microsoft Volume Licensing

I was wondering about your comment re entering the key on the official Microsoft Office website though, I was going to check that out but can't see where you enter the key though - could you point me in the right direction please?

As for picking these licences up via eBay, it's got to be worth a punt, worse case scenario Microsoft revoke the licence but if you manage to use it even for a month its still cheaper than the cheapest Office 365 subscription.

Login to your office a/c, go to subscriptions and there is an option for payments on mine (due to run out in two weeks) or add a subscription key.

The danger if they revoke your key or a/c is the data or media you store could be locked? My wife uses it more than I and stores all her school work that she uses both at home and when working in school. I use it more for publisher and word creating media brochures, etc for work. I don't use the storage. I should!

Ah, my bad. I was looking at my Microsoft account and not Microsoft Office!

I just tried to register a full packaged copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2010 that I have installed on my PC. A friend who works at Microsoft gave it to me a good few years back now, I seem to remember him saying they get huge discounts on applications and games. Although it shows Product Key Confirmed (Step 2) it won't move on to Step 3 - Get Your Office, I get an error message saying 'we can’t set up your account at the moment'...I'm thinking it may be because its Office 2010.

Anyhow, I thought I'd register that first and tie it to my OneDrive which I've managed to bump up to 40Gb but only use c5Gb. My thinking was if I register the copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2016 that I have installed on my laptop and use the same email address they wouldn't be able to block access to any documents I happen to store as I do have a legitimate account.

Having said all that, maybe I'll just skip registering the product key on Office and hope I get a few months use before it gets pulled. The copy of Office 2010 I have on my PC can be installed on up to 3 machines so I have that to use if/when that happens.

So OP - you will get your deal voted cold. It is a good deal, when you consider MS charge £79 for the Office Home for the year.
However as there are plenty of pirates and thieves on this site, and HUKD don't mind people posting links to said deal, people see this as overpriced.
Personally, I only use legitimate software on all my computers, so this is almost as cheap as it was at Christmas and should be being voted hot. Alas, general thieving scum will vote it cold for you.

They won't revoke your Office key. The reason windows 10 keys get revoked is multiple people try and activities with it and it is then labled as leaked.

Just go to Office.com
Sign in with your hotmail/live/windows account.
Go to your account section
Enter the £2.99 OEM key
You will see your software there you legally own.

Full access to cloud storage on office server etc.
There's no possibility for key to be revoked because it's already registered to your account. You own it from this point and any attempt for use by anyone else will be denied as it is presumed that they have stolen it from you. It's yours

Further proof to this is that there is a method to transfer licenses if you look in the terms but it involves action by the legitimate key owner.

Until a key has been used there is no license or agreement entered into so there is no violation of anything.

The person above is a moron.

Would have bought this a few weeks back at this price... was looking at email hosting for my domain.
Went with the free offering from zoho which works pretty well.
The 1TB One Drive is tempting though, if only as a repository for storing backups of essential files and photos from home.

I think people are confusing this deal Office 365 that gives access to all the Office apps, 1TB of online storage and 60 minutes of Skype per month with a stand alone version of Office 2016 using 'dodgy' keys bought from Ebay.

This is a good deal, I use Office 365 as a very cheap way of getting 1TB of online storage, the cheap keys from Ebay would not give me this.

I accidentally liked this moronic question - how can anyone say that something which has not happened yet is already a fact?

However, the UK economy is booming which is feeing through as inflation with the long-term rates already rising. Short term rates will soon begin to follow. The money markets are already pricing in a much stronger Pound in the second half of 2017.

Office 2019 has a confirmed retail/single payment release.

They (the corporate PR) have been "telling us" for 10 years that subscription models are going to take over in a couple of years.
