Microsoft Office 2016 for £9.95 (HUP) from Oct 7

382
Found 3rd Oct 2015
Deal URL = microsofthup.com/hup…=GB

Use the above URL, please. For some reason HUKD is redirecting to MS Store instead of the HUP site.

This is a heads-up for Office 2016 available under home use program (very similar to the Office 2013 deal posted a few days ago). If your employer is participating in this, you should be able to purchase Microsoft Office 2016 for £9.95. The purchased software can be installed on 1 home computer (Mac/PC).

You can go to the deal URL and provide your work email to check whether you are eligible. Even if you do not know your "Program Code," you can still proceed.

Please note that if you go to the deal URL before 7th Oct, you will be able to get Office 2013 only. To get Office 2016, please attempt purchase only on or after 7th Oct. This is as per -- blogs.office.com/201…ed/, where they have mentioned as below:-

4. When will Volume Licensing customers be able to get Office 2016?

Volume Licensing customers will be able to download Office 2016 from the Volume Licensing Service Center beginning today, and Home Use Program (HUP) customers can install Office 2016 beginning on October 7, 2015. MSDN Subscriptions customers can download Office 2016 now.

Office for Mac 2016 v15.15 is now available through AutoUpdate

So, here we go again, if you are working, you can get this for £9.95, but … So, here we go again, if you are working, you can get this for £9.95, but if you don't work, retired like me, I have to pay full price....something isn't right there.



But you do get decent pensions, free bus travel, winter fuel allowance etc which is far more than the next generation will get when they get there. You've also grown up in times where house prices were much much lower relative to salary giving you more disposable income than young people get these days. I obviously don't know anything about your personal circumstances but in general the retired generation today do pretty well for themselves, probably far better than any subsequent generations.

Well, you should still be able to purchase 2016 on Oct 7th. (though I understand that the £9.95 that you just spent on 2013 is a bit . . . wasted)
Thanks, my employer is part of the home use program
What about students?

How does 2016 differ to 2013? What are peoples preference?
I was about to buy 2011 for MAC when posted few days ago.

This is HOT as my employer is eligible for this program.

Thanks for letting us know I registered a few weeks back but was holding off for the 2016 release :-)

​yes
but which options do we have to select???
Where do you enter your email to check eligibility ?
Not saying your wrong, but where does it confirm the price for 2016 to be £9.95? Or are you assuming the price won't change?
thanks
Worth mentioning that Visio Pro 2013 is on there for a tenner as well. now that's a steal!
can anyone give the proper link? followed the get deal link but nothing obvious. Thanks

Thanks scrimpersdelight. I went on to the website via the link, found nothing & searched the scheme & nothing (which is power for the course when using the Microsoft website) but your link took me straight there. Haven't tried yet but thanks for the link.
Does anyone know whether the NHS are on the HUP? I remember them taking themselves out of it, but trying to find out from our HR is like banging your head against a brick wall!
This doesn't allow you to purchase a second license for Office 2013. If I have already purchsed Office 2013, will I be able to purchase Office 2016?
Thanks
thanks

Check with your College/University.
Where I'm studying students get free Office 365 Pro.
At the moment I'm still on 2013 with that 365 but I think they'll roll out 2016 sooner or later.

Anyone know if Microsoft have installed any hidden little gems in this...
like trackers/keyloggers/spyware.... as they have in Windows 10
Voted Hot though my employer pulled out of the programme

no thanks im sticking to office 97
Congratulations! You may be eligible to purchase!

You'll receive an email confirmation in just a moment.
Anyone know if you can get this if your self employed?
If you leave the company you got this through are you technically meant to stop using it ?

No the NHS aren't part of the HUP scheme and I would advise anyone joining it to read the terms and conditions carefully.
Please read this cautionary tale from 2010:

Recently installed on office laptop, original purchase order was more than £300. So very good price to get it. Personally one might not use this software often on home laptop.(own experience).
There may Microsoft project on offer too.

Yes if you leave your employer or your employer leaves the HUP you are "supposed" to uninstall it. However your copy isn't revoked so they rely on the honour system. It will keep on working fine.
