Am I missing something, what's wrong with OpenOffice? I've been using it for years, it is completely free and handles all the main Microsoft file extensions.

And it is free. Did I mention that?

Just a heads up, you need a work email for this and it's dependent on whether they determine you're eligible or not.

Sure I already saw this posted here not long ago.
It's very job specific and it doesn't depend on whether Microsoft think your elegible. It depends on if you are actually eligible because of your employers licence
You have to enter a code given by your workplace.

Work on Mac?


If you buy the mac version then yes. The windows verson isn't very good on a mac.

I've never had to do that. MS validate your work email address domain has a license with them.
What’s the code that is required where can I find that?
Your employer needs to have the programme and you apply through your work email and providing your employer participates then you qualify. My previous employer had this arrangement but unfortunately my current one does not so I can't get it through them.

What a useless deal.
If you are on the treadmill using Office at work, they allow you to buy it for home so you can do a bit more after work .
But of course you can use it for own use as well. Not as good as it used to be since just single user now.

If you don't need the total compatibiliy with work environment, try LibreOffice for free.
Anyone manage to get this working on nhs.net email?
Happy 1st deal @mahi8321 🎉

The user experience and interface straight out of '95? You couldn't pay me to use it.

I thought that the NHS stopped paying for the HUP licence a while ago, I'm sure that I read a discussion on this forum.
I've just tried to use my NHS email and the site is asking for employers code too.

Libre office, open office or even Google document which I thing it works offline (not sure though!) All are completely free of charge
I get it working for TFL
They cancel your code if you leave the job
Am I right in thinking (or just very cynical), that if your employers offered this scheme you would almost definitely know about it by now as it would be classed as a ‘perk’? As very few employers offer it, I’m sure the ones who did would tell you.
If you're not eligible and you need a legal, full copy of Office for a similar price, use eBay. Companies disposing of old computers can now legally sell the old licenses. Same for copies of Windows etc..
The title of this deal should be altered to indicate it is employee specific and not available to all.

Depends what you need. I use Excel mostly and OpenOffice just doesnt have the same functionality but I'm not an average user. For most things yes OpenOffice is a good alternative.
