Microsoft office professional plus 2016 £9.95

Found 8th Dec 2015
If your employer uses Microsoft office then there is a good chance you can purchase Microsoft office 2016 for home use for £9.95.

use the link above to check.

alternatively, ask your HR dept if they are apart of the Microsoft home use program.

can't go wrong for a tenner. My previous purchase via the HUP allowed me to install it on 3 computers.

It's also worth noting that if you're a college or university student you can usually get Office for free during your studies from portal.office.com/sta…ent

If your company uses Office 365 for Business, you can access login.microsoftonline.com and install the desktop apps, for free, on your home pc or laptop.

A very good price
From the FAQ on http://www.microsofthup.com/hupuk/faq.aspx?country_id=GB
On how many computers can I install my Office product?
Employees can download and install their Office product on one device.
cant see it at 9.95 ?
previous versions allowed install on 3 PC's, but this one doesn't mention this. Saying that, I have already installed on 2 laptops used on the same network without issues
If your organisation uses Office365, you can get this for free. portal.office.com/Home

use link below to check

hope this helps
Home use prog. Need to get in touch with your own company. I've had Office 2010, Office 2013, for PC and 2016 for my Macbook Pro from my work over the years. Only disappointment was no Publisher on the Mac one
There's a good chance but no guarantee unfortunately
Got the PC edition already via my NHS employer. Shame you can't still buy the Mac edition as well now.
Shame my OH's workplace stopped HUP program this year, will need to stay with Office 2013
What's the program code?
After buying this,but not the extra £10 for a DVD, is it possible to download an offline installer or ISO to make my own backup ? It just seems to be this "Click-to-Run" rubbish.

That's what you get from your employer...

You can just click on 'Don't Know Your Program Code? Click Here.' You will then get an email, it only check if your work email is qualified or not. I have got mine by doing this.

Thanks OP, some heat!

You get a link in the email you get once making the purchase, you just download and use the product key from the email to register the product. Something along those lines anyway....it's easy I did it around 4 weeks ago
Is this worth the upgrade from 2013 ?

Looks exactly the same.
I presume this is a one-off fee, rather than office 365 which is subscription based?

No
They are not employees of corporations, which this deal is for.

There are school offers here.
If there school has signed up and they have a school email address they can get office 365 free for a year here

​yep, no subscription
Got this through my work good deal
Lloyds banking group qualify. You can have either Windows or Mac versions.
It's a good deal for those who qualify but does it really need to be posted every other week
Trouble is if you have a Mac & Windows PC you can't order both versions, once you order one the other variant is unavailable. So choose wisely!
serious question for those that know: what's the difference between office and apache open office?

You can ask a colleague to buy it as its driven by email address. The code is for all the company and then limited to one download per email.
Most of the Civil Service is eligible. Works well. You pay £9.95 for the download, another tenner if you want a a back up disc.
great thanks
A great deal, the only disappointment is that Visio and Project are no longer available through the program, as they used to be.

No you don't, its only a link to a 2.9mb setup file that starts the click to run thing. There is no complete offline installer available. If you try to get it through the MS MyAccount thing it says the serial is not valid. Basically they want £10 off you for a disc.
If your company has a Microsoft Enterprise agreement then you can ask your IT department for the correct link and info you need to enter and it has always been about £9. It may say you need to install on only one device but they would never know if you have it on 3. They may just make you do a phone automated license registration which takes about 5 minutes and if you speak to a person and not the automated phone, then simply say you had to wipe your previous device so this is the first install - I must have done this 1000 tie over the years with various home and business licenses as sometimes you will have to wipe a device and reinstall the software. Hope this helps.
Be careful as 2013 doesn't sit side by side with 2016.

Well there is an awful lot of difference between the two programs BUT it all depends on how much you use the program as to what benefits you get from it. Open Office is now being binned by many and replaced with Libre Office as this is regularly updated and gives a better performance. Microsoft office has many more functions and advances within it that any serious computer uses will know - not internet user that different. Its shows when you try to use macros, and other advanced functions such as in barcharts and tables when Microsoft Office features well above the others for performance. If all you need is a typing program to type a few letters now and then Apache is more than sufficient and free so no need to spend on Microsoft programs, however if you need professional use then I would only recommend Microsoft as they outperform the other programs then. Example, if you want to create a label document
with all the addresses for your xmas cards, its so easy in Microsoft but not so with other programs. Hope than helps you understand the differences there are obviously many more but not going to spend all night listing them here.

still running office 2010, for one sole reason.

it still has the ability to add auto-corrections with a right click directly on the word. this is invaluable for people who need to write long technical/academic pieces, with lots of terminology. it also optimises writing speed, without having to constantly go back and correct typos.

for some inexplicable reason this was removed after 2010; in 2013/16 you have to go into the menus and manually add each autocorrection word by word.

for shame MS, for shame.

I bought a licence for my computer last week, but instead of using the UK website I used their US website, just select US as your country: US $9.95 instead of £9.95, so around £7.

For home users, its been practically the same for the last 15 years, the only thing that has changed is the ribbon UI and the icons have got flatter.

Can the license key not be interchangeably used on PC and MAC?
