>> So if your organisation uses Office 2016/2019 or Office 365 you should be Eligible.

That's not always the case. Microsoft have different license agreements depending on company size, what software package is license, if ongoing upgrades are included in that agreement and license count. Without getting too technical there are only a few "Software Assurance" packages that this benefit is granted, so just because you use Office 2016/2019 or Office 365 it does automatically mean you will be eligible.

This is all due to change this year but its rolling out slowly to companies and countries to offer a discounted Office365 subscription if your company has enough Office 365 licensees in use.

Microsoft are also reported to be dropping the perpetual licenses under the HUP program and will from July only offer a discounted Office 365 subscription to people eligable for HUP.

The “old” HUP program was a £10 one off purchase for a office licence. It’s changed to 30% off Office 365.

It may may take a while for all countries to get the updates set up and rolled out with country specific licences.

Oh that might be what I was thinking off then
Thought this looked too good to be true.
The link said I was eligible so I went through logging in with personal microsoft account then work one and was offered Office 365 Home for £56 / year (for up to 6 users) or Office 365 Personal for £42 / year for 1 user.

This seems to be the 30% off rather than a single licence key for £11.50.

Good for those who get the £11.50 offer.
One question, why would anyone pay MS for this? Get Kingsoft office for free!

I use it mainly for Onedrive storage - everything else is just a bonus.

Funnily enough I was just looking at this today at my work - only elidgible (that's for you @TopTrump (highfive)) for the 30% Office 365 which kind of sucks.

I had issues activating the offer so opened a support ticket and got a call from MS. They sorted the activation etc and when I asked about the standalone product offers (as they have in other countries) they said I'd need to speak to the person in my company who dealt with them.

So maybe there's a way to activate the cheaper offers, but I can't be bothered tbh (espcially since I have a year''s licence already and have another licence from the argos deal @£39.99 on the way) .:p

They have already removed the perpetual licence option for me and the best offer is now £56 for one year rather than £12 for a perpetual licence. What a bunch of jokers - even Argos are offering office 365 for less.

I already use the free Libraoffice for home use - even though I have a perpetual licence for Office 2016.

This isn't a deal - its a con.


As an office 365 enterprise user at work you can use the software on your own computers free of charge so you dont need to take out a subscription - just log on with your work e-mail address and choose the option for home use; that is if you are not worried about MS tracking your every word.

When you click the link from your email that should take you to the HUP Portal you will notice a few things.
It appears like the standard Microsoft Store Website. This is different to last year and looks different to the normal HUP Site. You will notice:
Save 30% on Office 356 Annual Subscriptions
- Office 365 Home @ £55.99
- Office 365 Personal @ £41.99
If you scroll down further on the page you will see "Other Office Products". When you select the product you want it will show you the prices and then allow you to buy them.
- Office Professional Plus 2019 @ £18.23
- Office Home and business 2019 for Mac @ £14.99
- Visio Professional 2019 @ £16.40
- Project Professional 2019 @ £15.28
I am not sure where the £11.50 price is coming from. I was not able to locate it, having said that as the link I followed led me to a site that looks nothing like the HUP site of last year my assumption is this is the reason for this.
Got Office Professional Plus 2019 for £18.23. Thanks.

At the moment it’s on offer at Argos it will not be on offer forever. I tend to stock up when it’s on offer.

I suspect the argos sale is because the mcaffee that’s bundled in the deal is about to be replaced with the next years version and this is a promo price. Short of these bundles there isn’t usually many offers for Office 365 and yes there are free versions but like someone else I use it for the 1tb one drive Getting office thrown in is a bonus.

In my case, I have to use my work login which allows access to our admin. No way I am going to let that happen. Libre Office is working fine.

Just because you authenticate using company credentials to access a license, it doesn't allow your admin to access your documents if you store them locally on your own PC. The only thing the admin could do is to remove a particular license from your O365 account, which I suspect he's only likely to do when you leave the company. You'd then see 'unlicensed product' across your Office installation and most features would be disabled.

It depends entirely on what policies are in place by the organisation and Microsoft. Small organisations may not have any of the features enabled, big corporations may have lots of data protection features.

It’s possible to disable saving to non approved locations (such a a local drive).

Its also possible that content scanning is in place maybe to perform functions such as data loss prevention software policy is that your company may have in place. This can also affect emails such as not allowing specific keywords to be used and stopping such emails to be sent.

All of this is according to what the the organisation that owns the licences setup not Microsoft.

If you authenticate using your work credentials but install everything to your own personal PC, outside of the company network, you download and install the standard Office installation everyone else uses, the only thing you use is one of five Office installations allowed for each user with an O365 license. The company (big or small) has no control over your PC, the installation settings, your data or any of the things you mention. The only thing your company can do it to revoke the license (or if it chooses) revoke the validity of that particular installation of Office. When that happens your office installation will go into an effective read-only mode and will stay that way until you re-license it.
So it looks like MS are changing the way they price this, dropping the one time £10 purchase in favour of a 30% discount on an annual subscription - yeah no thanks for that "deal".
But if you set your location as US instead of UK, you find the new pricing hasn't been applied there, so you can still do the one time purchase for $15. It wants a US address, but since it ends with a digital download just google an address and give that.

When you sign in with Work Creds the activation of the Office install means it gets set of parameters sent to it. Its entirely possible an organisation can prevent local saving of documents so you can only use your Work One Drive to store data when you are signed in with work creds. Sign Out and use personal creds and the restriction is lifted (and they may mean office goes into unlicensed mode if you don't have a licence) .

Your right they have no control of the PC itself, but they CAN control the way Office behaves when signed in with organisational credentials.

As I said what control an organisation may implement depends on what features they have licenced and how worried they are about data loss.

An organisation can only turn on or off the ability for users to download and install Office themselves. They could for example choose to make Office available for download and not Project, or turn off downloads altogether, but that's about the limit of the control. So they have no control over the way Office installs or is configured on non-organization owned devices. An organisation would normally use the Office Customization and Deployment tools, or use SCCM to deploy Office to their own PCs. That combined with the controls available through GPOs means an organization can control very well what they want within Office, but only on their own organization's PCs. On your home PC, your self-downloaded and installed Office is entirely within your own control and as I already mentioned, the only control the organization have is the ability to revoke the license.

There are a lot of changes under the new multimodal modes in office along with the WIP features in Windows. It’s designed to allow segregation of work and home content on the same device.

But as I said it depends what an organisation has licences in their agreements and what they choose to deploy. Intune has a lot of endpoint management features but not all companies will buy or configure it in such a secure way
