That £9 offer is for only certain companies right? Not for the average Joe Boggs. Correct me if I am wrong.

If you claim the free 2013 upgrade for Home and Student 2010, do you loose the ability to install it simultaneously on 3 computers?¿

Because I can afford 9 bones.

yes you are correct

its for people with .ac.uk email accounts which are students/ colleges etc or from your workplace that uses office 2013 via Microsoft Home Use Program

.ac.uk domains are intended for the use of higher education institutions (beyond compulsory education age), and are also used by some academic support bodies such as the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (www.ucas.ac.uk), public research establishments, and learned societies such as the Royal Society (royalsoc.ac.uk). Primary and secondary education uses .sch.uk.

i know, sometimes you really do have to spell things ot, amazing that some people can breathe

here's a list of freebies if £85+ is a bit of a issue (credits to PCWORLD.com for the info)

1. LibreOffice

Certainly the leading office productivity suite on the open source side is LibreOffice. In the two or so years since it was forked from OpenOffice, it's become the suite most commonly included by the top Linux distributions. With six feature-rich applications for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and more, the software had already been downloaded some 20 million times by last fall. It's available as a free download for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

2. Apache OpenOffice

Then, too, there's Apache OpenOffice, now under the purview of the Apache Software Foundation. OpenOffice is what LibreOffice is based on, so the two share many similarities; development work seems to be progressing more quickly on the latter, however. Not to be confused with the German variation now known as White Label Office, this suite is available as a free download at the project site.

3. Calligra Suite

Stepping a bit closer to Microsoft's new suite in terms of cross-platform compatibility is Calligra Suite, a graphics and office suite created by the KDE project from KOffice in 2010. With versions for desktop PCs, tablets, and smartphones, this package includes eight components spanning word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, databases, vector graphics, and more. It can be downloaded for free for Linux, FreeBSD, OS X, and Windows.

4. OxygenOffice Professional

OxygenOffice Professional, meanwhile, is an enhanced version of OpenOffice that comes with extra goodies including templates, clip art, samples, fonts, and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) support. Now in version 3.2.1, this free software can be downloaded for 32-bit Windows as well as 32- and 64-bit Linux.

5. Feng Office Community Edition

Finally, there's Feng Office Community Edition, a free and open source online project management and collaboration tool formerly known as OpenGoo that offers task management, document management, project management, time tracking, knowledge management, and more. Users of the software can create and edit text documents and presentations online; they can also upload, organize, and share files. The free software can be downloaded online; paid professional versions are also available starting at $59 per month.

I don't quite understand why its voted cold. Granted there are free alternatives, but for those that specifically want office 2013, right now, this seemed to be a good deal. Puzzling!

****ing freezing

The reason it is going cold is because you won't get 3 licenses to Office 2013, if you buy Office 2010, and then try and upgrade, your get just the one license to 2013, not the three you originally paid for. It's already been discussed on here earlier throughout the day when someone else posted, and also on other website forums..

there one was a time when Microsoft could command this price because competition was so bad. Unfortunately for Microsoft, allot of freeware stuff is perfectly acceptable for students, home office and the like. Yes office is still better but Unless you work for a fortune 500 company, paying this much would be silly.

Has any normal person ever done anything in MS Office modern version they weren't able to do on a copy from 15 years ago? I can't believe MS are still milking this cow!

Yeah I'm of the same school of thought, I can remember things like Word 2.0, Office 4.2, and the original works package, as well as Wordperfect, and often wonder if we are really getting any long term benefits..

If you have school age children they need the version that they use at school.

Original Poster

Surely if you PAID for three licenses and upgrade it should be like for like? Also if it is just for one license upgrade, doing the upgrade route at £86.98 is still currently the cheapest way of getting office 2013 right now (if you are not a student) instead of paying £109.99. A deal is a deal surely.

Or, use a free compatible version like Opened Office moneysavingexpert.com/sho…are

Any school that expects its kids and parents to pay for MS Office wants shooting, and quite honestly is behind the times. Open source software is the future.

Looks like this deal has expired....
