Another Windows 7 Student Question

5 replies
Found 23rd Nov 2009
A few weeks ago i submitted my College ID to get Windows 7 at the student price, i received an email today from digitalriver, saying i am eligible and to click the link to go to the store, when i click the link all i can buy is :

Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 for 52 euro

Microsoft Visio 2007 for 49 euro

Microsoft Language pack 12 euro

after doing a search it seems that the office ultimate should be £38.95, but 52 euro works out around £46, also no links to Windows 7

Anyone had this before who can help?

why didn't you just google 'ultimate steal' and go here:
microsoft.com/stu…spx

I've done it that way, just like numerous others (and it takes no more than an hour or so to recieve the link)

Sorry i should have said in my post :oops:

I did a google search but when i enter my email address it says i am not eligible, but when i click the link sent to my email it works but takes me to the 52 euro copy, and no windows 7

well you must have signed up to the wrong offer, as long as your email address ends in .ac.uk then the above link will definately work.

Yeah must have just asked for Office not Windows 7

My email doesn't end in ac.uk, i never got an email from college so sent them my college pass thats why they have confirmed by email.

Still £46 for Office is worth it

every college student should have an ac.uk email address, the problem is that most don't know theirs. A couple of years ago when i was in 6th form, we all had them but not one student in my year knew this , if that was the case with a secondary school, i'm positive that if you have access to a computer at college, you will have an ac.uk email address whether you use it, or even know about it or not.
