Found 21st Apr 2015
I purchased this last year and my auntie recently asked me if i was aware of a deal on Microsoft office. Had a look on the net and came across this being up and running again. This is a bargain considering the same package is for sale on the microsoft website for £389.99!!! (see link below)

microsoftstore.com/sto…300

Your place or work must be part of the Home Use Program, for you to be eligible for this deal. If you pop your email address in the form it will tell you if you are eligible or not.

1) Click on the Deal Link
2) Enter your work e-mail address
3) Enter Program Code (If your not sure of this then click you do not know)
4) wait for confirmation E-mail from Microsoft in your works e-mail address
5) Click on the link in your e-mail
6) Purchase either the instant download code / CD version.
7) Product Key will appear in purchase order and in works e-mail address or wait for the CD version to arrive.

This comes with

Word 2013
Excel 2013
Powerpoint 2013
Outlook 2013
OneNote 2013
Access 2013
Publisher 2013
InfoPath 2013

If you have a MAC the site states that you would be able to get Office for Mac 2011 which i believe includes:

Word 2011
Excel 2011
Outlook 2011
Powerpoint 2011

This might work with your student email address (it worked for me with an @mail.bbk.ac.uk address)

After purchase, does it just give you a key which you can use to download onto any laptop (i.e my home personal laptop)? I have a work email which is eligible but can only access my email account it on my work computer.

I did it at work a few years ago. Just use your work email address etc and then the download link they send you just email to the computer you want to install it on and then click it to install the software to that computer

When i did it you also had the option of paying a few more £'s and getting it sent on a DVD

Cold. Posted every couple of months. Too limited when it comes to availability.

Probably will get told off or sacked for using company email to order Office for myself

Voting hot as I think it's a good reminder (just today I told a colleague about this, and he wasn't aware that the company we work for is part of this scheme).

I remember reading that this can be installed on up to 3 computers, but I might be wrong (and it might be better to confirm).

Alternatively, use LibreOffice (that's what I do :))

@lucyferror: This comes straight from Microsoft, so I don't fully understand your comment regarding availability... do you mean because it's only available for companies that use office?
Edited by: "eldaras" 21st Apr 2015

I mean not many people will be eligible for it. Availability is quite limited imo due to many emails not being accepted.

Anyone with Windows 10 preview installed can use the Office Word, Excel and Powerpoint preview apps for free.

Alternatively, you can use the online office suite via office.live.com/ probably more then enough for the majority of people.


Still great offer if you're able to get it.

Hup is a programme which is agreed by organisations and Microsoft to allow employees to purchase a legal personal copy for personal use. This may not be agreed by lots of employers so limited audience.. Still a good deal and nearly no expiry...

eldaras

Agreed. Why pay at all.

For those who aren't aware, Libre Office has got everything Microsoft Office has got and it's an even bigger bargain because it's totally free! For anyone who doesn't want to pay for their office software it is well worth a try: libreoffice.org/

If anyone has a link & code pass it on.....

What are you waffling on about?

If your company is eligible, you're eligible to purchase Office from Microsoft at a heavily reduced rate. There's no issue from your employer - they don't get charged.

You can't get in trouble if you use your company email. The offer is only open to companies who are enrolled in the Home-Use program, so if you put your work email address in and your company aren't enrolled you just won't be able to proceed with the purchase.

Also there's no limit to how many people can purchase via this offer per company. If you're an employee with a valid email address you can purchase it and download the software instantly.

I've explained it quite clearly. Can't be bothered to type it in capitals if you don't understand what I mean

Can anyone confirm if this will work on more than one PC? And if not, whether you can purchase multiple copies using the same email address?

Getting hold of dodgy copies of Office isn't that hard, but for this price it's worth being legit.

I work in Education and have access to the same deal at £9 a pop, though it can only be installed on a single PC, so I guess it will be the same here for single PC use. However even then it's a no-brainer if you can get it, and as far as I know you can purchase more than one copy, but I don't know how many licenses you're limited to.
If you have kids in school it might be worth checking with your school whether as a parent you have access to the Microsoft Educational Program (or whatever it's now called!). You probably won't get it for a tenner, but there will be a huge discount on the retail price for you.

Absolutly!

And even if you can get Microsoft Word for 10£ - you better think twice about it! MS just wants you to create lots of files with Word so you cannot switch easily anymore.

As a consequence I even use LibreOffice for documents that I share at home and work and have it installed at work as well. I'd admit that LibreOffice is not as polished as Word, though. But it's good enough for a few letters, with tables or simple graphics.

Great deal if you can get it. I have used this since 2003 to get MS Office on the cheap as the companies I worked for have been in the scheme. Always keep the downloaded file you get from the link they give you as if you need to reinstall at a later date the link can stop working when they upgrade MS (Happened to me when my home PC went kaput). If you request it on disk then no problem. There are free Office packages out there but they do not always open up my MS Office work files e.g when they are password protected. For day to day stuff then fine.

If you want to be legit you should read the T&C of this offer in detail.
For example, if I remember correctly the license expires as soon as you leave the company's service.

And like I said... you are waffling.

There are no issues with this offer, no reasons to get sacked, and no problems with availability.

Agreed. Why pay at all.



The reason people pay is because they get more value out of paying for it than messing around with free software.

Simple really.

This works with my uni email address (@mail.bbk.ac.uk). Cool!
Guys, you could try with your uni email addresses. Might work for all in the UK.

Company can be a little bit unhappy that you are using company email for a personal gain. It have nothing to do if your employer owns/uses microsoft office or not. If you don't get it this way - I rest my case

...Must we always see this type of post every single time a "Microsoft software" deal appears.
WE KNOW THERE ARE FREE ALTERNATIVES YOU PATRONISING LOVELY HELPFUL PERSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you have set your heart on running Office, and your employer subscribes, this is good value.

I would agree with many others in this thread that there are several equal (if not better) products available free of charge which maintain compatibility with many MS products. I myself have subscribed to similar offerrs in the past but increasingly find myself using Firefox / Thunderbird / Open Office etc.

It isn't part of the deal hear, but the ONLY microsoft product I would still consider paying for is Visio.

Not voted either way as I don't intend to take up this offer.

I am yet to encounter a company like this, if you give me their address I will gladly smash the windows of said company and wait for police to arrive.

Oh dear, you really don't know, or understand how the HUP works.

From the OFFICIAL HUP website...

"Who qualifies for the Home Use Program (HUP)?

The Home Use Program is a Software Assurance benefit available to Microsoft volume licensing customers with active Software Assurance coverage on their Office applications. Employees who use the covered licenses at work are eligible to purchase these Office applications for use on a home PC during the term of their employment. This temporary license expires with the employers Software Assurance coverage, or upon termination of employment with the covered customer."


"What do I need to place an order?

In order to place a HUP order, you must be an active employee of a company who has a valid Enterprise Agreement with Microsoft. You will need a valid work e-mail address, the company Program Code and an accepted form of payment.

Visit microsofthup.com to enter your work e-mail address and program code. You will then be e-mailed a link to complete your purchase.

The HUP purchase link is only valid for the employee and cannot be transferred."


"Why do I have to provide my work email address and program code?

To validate you are an eligible employee, we must verify your email domain and program code is from an eligible, participating Microsoft customer.

If your company does not have a specific domain address, please contact your Benefits Administrator to verify your e-mail address has been included in the approved email domain list."


So, as you can see... the company CAN'T be unhappy that you are using your work email for personal gain. It is INCLUDED in their agreement with Microsoft and costs them absolutely NOTHING. This is actually of benefit to the company as it increases productivity by allowing employees to use their own computers to complete tasks using the same applications as they would at work.

Now, how about you understand that?! X)

You still don't understand
It's not about legal side of it and t&c's
Nevermind.
Good night

Okay I'm not voting hot or cold on this one as our company has just moved over to 2013 and has told us that we're entitled to install it on five personal devices so I'd advise people to check with their IT department what their company's licence actually entails.

Sorry to OP for not voting hot if my company has some strange arrangement!

He's saying that if the company is signed up to the scheme, they will be well aware of employees benefitting from any perk like this, and won't even know, you only need the employer code and an email under the domain of the employer.

This is a great deal - but as it's been said - licence expires when you leave the company; practically if you reinstall there is a possibility the key won't re-activate. But for the money worth the risk IMHO.

The company is effectively subsidising the licence cost like other forms of benefit, I wouldn't say it costs them "nothing" but they should have OK'd it. Now if loads of employees start buying licences I can see why some companies may not jazzed about it - as to what they can/will do about it save cancelling the provision?
