Should have booked earlier they were free. Not worth paying full price really
All Microsoft Office Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
I complained. Got money credited to an account. £35 though. No money taken from my account at any point
Who did you complain to Raj?
Also received my PayPal refund yesterday :D
Got my PayPal refund yesterday
Hmmm, not sure whether the deal has ended of whether I'm doing something wrong, but... working out as £64 for me, and only available in Germany... (page below is from .de site, through Google Translate)
i think with the 1TB cloud storage is for office a office 365 subscription, where after each year you have to renew or they delete what you have stored. its mainly aimed for those using tablets or phone with limited storage "The premium Office apps and cloud services for PC/Mac, tablet and phone. An annual subscription with exclusive, new features every month and 1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage."
this is cheap enough and 175 positive sales so far. as for Cloud storage, you can buy a flash drive, a portable HDD with the money saved or used OneDrive from microsoft or Google Backup where you get about 20GB of cloud storage for FREE. even Yahoo give 1TB of of mail storage allowing you to email documents (Up to 25MB each) to yourself "The file(s) that you are trying to attach exceed the 25 MB attachment size limit. You can upload files to Dropbox or Google Drive, connect your cloud service to Mail, then add those files to emails you send"-Yahoo
The EBAY offers look great but not the same as this as they relate to the personal edition and do not include the 1TB of cloud storage (from the comments of one EBAY poster) "There is no CD or key or serial code! This cannot be used to renew an existing subscription" "You cannot use your own email for this. I will send you a username and password for your new account with instructions on how to install." Horses for courses.
Nice. Thanks for this. There’s quite a few on eBay. Can you let me know what to search for.
But norton is american .. so its all ok (scarcasm)
i can't help but think this is somewhat misleading the way it is marketed, after all you are not buying office but a subscription to use it for 1 year....
If you have a internet connection and just use you’re device at home, Microsoft home is free online. And don’t get me started on norton(devil)
The 32-bit version is typically recommended as it is more compatible with other applications. Thanks, I'll investigate further over the weekend.
Glad the HUP has been of use, I know that most people aren't aware of it as I always tell people at my work place, it's a good deal in my mind vs lengthy subscriptions, I'm sure multiple purchases would get around 2 or 3 multiple devices and still work out cheap. I don't know what issues you are facing, hopefully it's the right bit version for your setup, but I'd assume that it would give you a specific message about that. Could it be a anti virus if other protection software that you may just need to switch off during the installation? Microsoft will be able to support you with installation issues
Thanks, had never heard of Microsoft HUP. Very good price! Just bought it... Unfortunately, the installation of the 32-bit version keeps failing. Am I missing something? Thanks!
Looks like a volume licence, cant fault it Installed on 3 machines
academic licence or a volume licence. I am sure Microsoft knows about these sales but I doubt they care with billions of sales.
I would go insane - hope they pay you the big bucks :)
Microsoft Excel is can be used for some really advanced spreadsheet, though I think £22.09 I'm going to vote hot hoping that this includes info for creating the advanced spreadsheets with macros, filters etc. Thanks! Wow @ITMA this may be the first time I actually agree with you, haha.
Your not alone. They should call 2016 'Millennial edition'. The idea of moving away from an OS level standard menu layout to randomly placed icons just to please a generation who will never use excel until they grow up is beyond me. The people who like this layout are happier sat on a tablet playing candy crush than being productive. Its completely illogical why youd do it. Its like giving a human a stick and telling it to get its food by sticking the stick in a termit mound.. and calling it progress. If they want to do this they should release 2 versions - the home/light use version (accounts would probably like this version to) with nice big buttons and the corporate versions for devs and frequent users who need common and easily accessible menus. Sorry for the rant. Something set me off.
Shame they don't do the Koran version
Most things you want to do using excel has a YouTube video. I dont see the need of having to buy a book every time a newer version is released.
365 alone is currently £49.99 on Amazon :)
just found stock near me, ordered - (highfive) and run it though Vouchercodes to get a £5 argos voucher
Maths says you can but Microsoft say you can't.
I guess people don't realise how irelivent anti-virus software is nowadays. The included windows defender that's been there since like windows 7 covers you for anti-virus. Around 90% of all infections are down to malware, not a virus, so really you need something like Emsisoft (which covers anti-virus too) or malware-bytes. You never need more than 1 anti-virus/ 1 anti-malware tool either, it's a bit like having 2 insurance policies on your car.
Unfortunately not. It's 1 year only no matter how many users.
Many thanks - Tickets purchased - Thanks for posting :D
Amazing find. Thanks OP
The code not working.
Thank for posting :)
What a freebie chichi, cheers :D
I ordered Office 365 from CEX. It arrived yesterday. Sealed Microsoft box with key inside. All up and running with no issues. Therefore a genuine key for £30.
Thanks, I just logged in to work email and it had the instal option, just whish I knew about it sooner. Its office 2016 so it says, I will only use excel and word.
Seems decent this but does anyone know of a cheaper legit way to to get 1TB of onedrive storage?
Do you have a link please?
I have office 2007, but had to uninstall it to be able to install Excel 2016 (64-bit) which I need for work. I rarely use word docs, and when I do it's usually with reader, so not an issue. On the rare occation, I need to edit a .doc, I use this, and it makes life a lot easier!
Outlook.com is Hotmail as was, just with a lot more functionality. To max out the usefulness of all the free MS stuff a MS account helps. You can have more than one.
To be fair it's due to the wording of the question. Desktop Outlook isn't included in this offer, that's part of the full Microsoft Office suite (or downloadable Windows/Mac Office 365). Online email in this offer is indeed called "Outlook", it's all based online and the same as it's been for an age.
Interesting site softwaregeeks. Looks like they're reselling volume licences (for the cheaper stuff). May be "genuine" (their words) but it's an infringement of Microsoft licensing. Wonder how long they'll survive? Nb. Reselling is allowed under EU law but you must still meet the licence terms. I highly doubt these do, so you might as well pay less on eBay. Given some of the prices it suggests resold MSDN, Education or stolen codes and not fully paid up business licenses (which they would be entitled to sell).
Libreoffice, not Open office Also for those who want Libreoffice layout to be near same as Microsoft Office they have a layout skin option of it in it's settings
Do you know where i can get the netflix one thanks
Behave ! I don’t need Grammar, I fit kitchens and build houses . Earn a very good living. Stick YOU’RE ! Grammar up ye ?£&;6
Anyone work in an NHS Trust. Are they part of this program scheme. ? Email not enough.
There/their, your/you're. Not worthy of debate I'm afraid. But a sample size of one would not be statistically robust would it? Just because you think it's a contradiction, that doesn't make it so. And you're probably a chauvinist too, judging by your comments about a screen name. I'm a 46 year old male. Now go and be a boor somewhere else.
They obviously don't have spellcheck built in......
Typical programmers making a mole hill look like a mountain. :p Just use a download manager in Chrome as suggested in the 1st method on the deal link. Newbie (Dummies) guide to downloading all eBooks: Get the Chrono Extension for Chrome. Open the Manager in Chrono and go to settings. Make sure 'Download URL from Clipboard' is selected, you should also disable most of the popup and notification (remember to switch them back on afterwards). In Chrome settings -> Advanced -> Downloads, change the default to where you want to save the books (eg. downloads/MS-eBooks), disable 'ask where to save each file before downloading'. If there is an option to automatically open downloaded files for know file types, click it to remove it. Get the url txt list: http://ligman.me/2tk1D2V select all and copy. In Chrono hit the + icon then Start. Now sit back and relax, content that you've just hoarded a tonne of books you'll probably never open. Tip, test first with just copying 4 or 5 links, then do the rest if they go smoothly.
Chrome, as I said :p
Which browser are you using
I did find that as I said I think I'm struggling with browser issues as it says to save target as, though I'm not sure if it means the text or the image as neither of those gives the option it describes when using chrome, so I'm not sure where to go from there.
Happy to help :)
Nokeys typically offers 10% off RRP which you can combine with coupons which come up every now and again
What site are you using to get them? I use cdkeys for usd cards but never got any with a big discount
On USD can typical get up to 20% off on gift cards with discount codes.
But this is a gift card
Freezing. It's only 5% off. This is about regular price for CDkeys. Would expect a bare minimum of 10% discount for buying £40 all in one go.
Agreed been using this for a couple of years on my work phone now does everything the top office programs do for free
The best thing about Softmaker Office is the speed, it's so fast from startup to in use, it's fast fast fast
That's true :o but to be fair, I can't honestly remember the last time I used carrier pigeon though?. (skeptical) Or maybe that's just me?, lol. :p
Funnily enough, even the paid version of WPS (the £60-£80 or so one-off price for the Product) gives you those 'discreet' ad's (I thought paid meant paid right?, lol). But either way, I prefer it anyway. :-) That, along with with the free Office Packages like Open Office, and Libre Office (all are competent in my book). :-) SoftMaker Office isn't too bad too if I'm honest?. :-) Microsoft Office is now obviously the defacto level to which most Office Packages pitch their fork, but with the ever ballooning costs of the Package + ever ballooning size of it too etc, it's now proving itself not for everyone?. Microsoft Office has certain 'unique features' that some of it's competitor's may lack perhaps?, but to go with it, Microsoft Office also has a 'unique price' in line with such also?, so ... lol. Pick your poison accordingly basically?. :-)
Cloud-enabled Office Packages are fine too, but not good for everyone ... As/when I've traveled abroad (like a lot of people do every once in awhile), and I'm in need of typing a few things up 'locally' in whatever Country I'm in, it's good to have a non-Cloud based Office Package on your System of some sort (personally speaking that is). As you may/may not come into an immediate 'source' of ready Internet (and then what?). And even if you soon do, that could perhaps easily kill off a few hours of your time doing such research for such to begin with? (not to mention the potential wasted money required to then establish that now required permanent 'connection' ... Whereas a normal Office Package (that's main focal point is not Cloud facilities that is), you simply up and go, job done, lol. :-) I will never 100% warm to Cloud only Office Packages I don't reckon (especially when I know there's more than enough notable competent Office Packages out there, that are not die hards insistent on running away from the already former longgggggg established status quo? (going back some 20+ Year's now ... ) But that's me anyway, lol. :-) But I also get why some may love the alternative instead though (I'm realistic). :-)
What’s the difference between this Editor version and the Pro?
No longer free.Deal needs expired.
Good impression of a complaint then
i am an android user so the ipad is the only apple product that i own. i don't use the ipad much except for watching videos and listening to music. looked at those, which appear to apps available free to the ipad. my first impression is that they are not compatible with windows so i can not read the files created on those apps on my windows laptop and vice versa, whereas this free app that the OP has flagged up is windows compatible.
I couldn't agree more!. Outside of a 'Business like' environment, I don't know of many people also, that are hell bent on the Office 365 ecosystem either?. All this Cloud-enabled faffles and the like, are not for everyone?. Gone are the days of the simplicity of Office 95 onwards ... (the beast the initially assisted in helping Microsoft with it's money, lol). Chromebooks on the other hand are a whole different level of animal entirely?!. But yeh, I hear your point there for real, lol.
Used to luvvvvvvvvvvvvv Word Perfect. :-) I still do, lol, but these day's I've also discovered whole magnitudes of freebie alternatives besides? (so I'm fine with such also), hehehehehe.
I’m sure you you ask someone here could give you a seat on their O365 account? Works no different to sharing Spotify family etc.
That's only the case if you have 5 machines to install on. I want it specifically for my laptop, and no one else in my family would have any use for it (they may as well be using Chrome Books). £60 a year for me to buy this.
Back in stock
Home Use Program is not Free to the company, it depends what they licenced from Microsoft. This over simplifies it (as big enterprises may have customised agreements) but think of it as there are two basic types of bulk licence agreements for companies. It also does not cover Office 365 which is more akin to software rental and many companies are moving to. First type is you buy XYZ copies of Office for employees. This licences a set version of the software, if you want to upgrade (say office 2013 to Office 2016) you have to buy a new set of licences for the machines for Office 2016. This DOES NOT give you the Home Use Program. The second type is what Microsoft call Software Assurance, This means company pay Microsoft extra to have the ability to upgrade to new versions of office as they come out. So in this case if they licenced XYZ machines and installed Office 2013, they could upgrade them all for no addition cost to Office 2016. This DOES give your employees access to HUP, but its significantly more than the cost of just licencing the software and there is a yearly maintenance agreement fee. Many companies just licence the version they need as its cheaper for them to do so than buy the one with upgrades, it depends on the company and if they need to be on the latest version, but Software Assurance can cost anywhere between 20% to 40% extra of the licence cost to be paid each year to Microsoft as a maintenance agreement. You can understand why if you don't need the ability to upgrade its quite a cost to the company.
In theory it should cost the company nothing to implement this as staff purchase the software themselves using their own purchase card. They only need a valid company e-mail address to verify the company qualifies under the scheme, and a company reference number. The company itself has no role other than advertising the scheme and providing the valid company id number. The problem is a company has no way of verifying the installations have been removed once a member of staff leaves. Microsoft don't seem concerned about this whilst a company has an enterprise agreement. The moment they lapse Microsoft come down and demand that either the company verifies the removals or pays for the installed software.
I think its more the fact to offer this to a employee costs the company money, and that has to de paid up front regardless of if a employee takes the offer up. Its not quite as simple as this as the agreement you need to qualify for HomeUse is more than just the ability to offer the licences to your employees but lets take your £80 as an example (as it will vary according to the size of the company), If it was a company of 1000 employees it would cost the company £80K on top of the cost of the "work" office licences to be able to offer it to employees, The company gets nothing back or no discount if no one then chooses to take the offer up. Scale that up to a 2000, 10,000 or 100,000 employee company and the cost to offer the software gets to be quite a lot of money especially in the current climate where companies are looking to make savings. There some benefits such as employees being more fluent in MS product use, but that hard to justify against a multi thousand pound outlay.
There is some truth in this. When the company I work for did not renew its enterprise agreement it had to pay £80 for each and every home user who had taken up the £8 offer under the home user scheme. The NHS had to come to a similar arrangement with microsoft when it also took a break from their microsoft scheme. This can be quite expensive as users can buy the home version for the same price. I suspect some companies will be unwilling to advertise the scheme because of this.
Well said!!! The Health Service discount thing is a bloody rip off and the Health Service should bad the shysters.
He said only a moron would do this if running a business, not specifically you, as microsoft will bankrupt a business found to be using illegally obtained licences. And this will be illegally obtained licence keys as previously explained. They are being sold by a company that sells clothes at market stalls registered at a two up two down house in Rochdale, which can in no circumstances be able to get hold of these licence keys legally.
This is not "fully legit". This is a fraudulent listing. The company is listed at Companies House as "Nature of business (SIC) 47820 Retail sale via stalls and markets of textiles, clothing and footwear" This offer is only available to staff working for a company that has an enterprise agreement with microsoft for the product. Anyone not working for the named company are not eligible for this product. The licence keys are sold by a company that has already used the licences but has not activated them. Their agreement does not allow them to sell them on again to a third party. When the licence limit is reached Microsoft will get an alert and will revoke the licences. The licences you think you have purchased may be revoked within a day, a week, a year. You don't know. The Amazon website has 12% of purchasers who have had their licence key either revoked or not working within a short space of time. The others have given it good ratings because the key has worked for the first few weeks. The chances are that a good number of them will now have software that no longer works.
Link no longer works. This needs to be retired. Also this is not a legitimate purchase. This price is only available for staff of companies who have an enterprise agreement. You are giving your money to a fraudster.
You are provided with a download link and a key How long the key lasts though is anyone's guess
When this arrives, can I just download it to my computer and it will work or do I need a key?
