most .edu email addresses will qualify.

My university always offer all the kinds of software for free.

My .edu address did not work. Guess I will stick with 2010 for now.

Strange serendipity that I started a new job and googled my way to this literally moments before this popped back up here and passwird. Also, since now is the time, you will be missed jumbowoot. A dealflood I can get behind. I can only assume your exit is because no one would endorse a response to my resume as i moved to Seattle last month. Best of luck.

This is just BS! you only qualify if the place you work at has bought a special Microsoft Office site license. If your eligible your place of work has most likely already notified you that you can get it for $10. For everyone else this is just a big waste of time and should never had been made a sponsored deal.

@jjjooe: So, That's whats wrong with schools these days..

@computech: Not true. I didn't know my school had it and I'm eligible.

I have a ca.gov email address it worked. Its a virtual copy linked to the cloud.

Has anyone used the new version yet? I read part of the SlickDeals thread offering this same deal (from Jan. 2013) and several people hated the new version. They said 2007 and 2010 were much better. I have 2010 so I won't be updating anytime soon.

@missellienc: They say that about every Microsoft product that comes out. It is all a personal preference.

I used my school e-mail and it worked. The only problem is that when I was checking out, I messed up my billing information. It didn't process the order, and it won't let me make another one. ...what do?

vote-for-9vote-against

As I recall most "Student Edition" software doesn't qualify for any future upgrades to newer versions.

vote-for4vote-against

@computech I also didn't know about the promotion until now, and turned out to be eligible.

vote-for13vote-against

@computech: I agree this is no place ti advertise for special groups. Whats up with this WOOT?

vote-for2vote-against

I got this mostly because it also gives full access to the Office web apps. Looking forward to the day when my Android tablet can fully take the place of my Windows laptop.

Do NOT like the fact that it forces you to install instead of just downloading the installation files like previous versions before. MS and their anti-pirate tactics.

vote-for-36vote-against

If you did not receive notification and a code from your school or employer before going to the website that you are eligible, THEN YOU ARE NOT, and you are stealing.

Now, if you're ok with stealing, and with the fact that MS are morons for doing things this way, fine, but don't kid yourself that you "paid" for it

The LibreOffice suite is free, legally. So why even use MSOffice?

As others have said, this is the standard MS Home Use Program. It's been around for a long time and I see no reason why this has to clutter up the sponsored deals here. IMO, deals that are available to a limited group of people do not belong in the sponsored list.

vote-for17vote-against

This is not stealing. You're either eligible or not depending on the company/school you work for or study at. Just enter your work or school email and check.

If I can't open my work e-mail at home can I forward it to my Gmail and open and download it to my home computer?

I currently teach online classes as an adjunct professor. We receive MS software for free at the following link - Microsoft Academic Alliance. https://www.dreamspark.com/

My .edu email address did not work, small school in Delaware

If you have a functioning .edu (educational institution) you can get a deep discount on MS products. Google student version.

Thankfully my school offers full versions of Office and OS's for $10 each, which aren't hardlinked to the cloud.

Note that I did upgrade from 2010 to 2013 and I like it better, for the most part.

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but this link isnt working for me.

I got this through my school and I do NOT like it. I put Office 2010 back in its place. It runs SLOW ... maybe because my computer's not the latest model, not fast enough, running Windows 7, not Windows 8.

@thisismyusername1: Write to digitalriver and explain. I'm sure they can unblock you. I lost my digital copy of a language program I bought through them and over a year later they re-enabled it so I could download it again, excellent customer service experience.

vote-for3vote-against

@jijibella: I ordered it from work (just now - I'm in Qatar) and there's an option to enter your personal e-mail on the order page, they send your order confirmation with the download link and key to both your work and personal e-mail.

Makes sense, this is supposed to be for your home computer and who uses their home computer at work (unless you work form home)?

Worked with my .edu address.

The link appears to be dead for now.

vote-for3vote-against

Just used it an hour ago, the site's a little shaky but eventually it worked. *.mil addresses work too

vote-for-1vote-against

Mil address will always work, as the US Gov't has a deal with Microsoft to use their products. I got my copies of 2003, 2007, and 2010 using this program.

Edu address will usually work as well, but again, techincally only if the school and Microsoft have a deal to do so. But students also get the discount on student versions. Just call and ask. Not very hard. Microsoft is actually pretty easy to work with, unless you instantly call them a-holes and demand free stuff.

The original idea was to allow workers to use the same software at home, as they do in the office, therefore increasing productivity. I see it as a way to keep people working 24 hours a day.. Personally...just me, one little person..my opinon. working from home should be stopped. If you can't do your job in the time alotted at work, do it tomorrow. There is this rush to get everything done, as quickly as possible, only to start something new right away. Americans need to start enjoying their time off more..

vote-for-5vote-against

It IS BS... tried the link and it wants work email and a 'program code' and then takes you in a loop where you never know the code....don't waste your time.

vote-for1vote-against

The link doesnt even work for me. Takes me to a redirect virus style search site. I just checked, and I do not have the redirect virus. Something is wrong with the link.

vote-for-5vote-against

If they gave me $9.95 I wouldn't install it.

vote-for0vote-against

The URL that link takes me to appears phony as crap. It also spawned several new windows. I wouldn't let them near any of my personal information.

Relating to Office 2013 though - I didn't want to like it. I also hated the move from Office 2003 to 2007/2010. As much as I wanted to hate Office 2013, it actually grew on me pretty quickly.

vote-for3vote-against

This "deal" always gets a thumbs down from me when users post it, it's sure getting a thumbs down from me as a sponsored deal. Only a small fraction of your user base is eligible for this "deal." If you're eligible, hey, great! But most of us aren't eligible. A true deal would be extending this offer to everyone, regardless of employer/school. Or at least everyone who already has a valid license for an older version, for a discounted upgrade.

vote-for7vote-against

Check out the license terms before pulling the trigger. Your license to use the software expires when (a) you leave your job or (b) your employer stops participating in the Microsoft site licensing program.

@thisismyusername1: TO ANYONE ELSE WITH THIS PROBLEM: just wait. It cancels eventually and lets you buy it.

vote-for2vote-against

@thisismyusername1: What are you talking about? This is valid, I've been using a copy of Office purchased through this program for years. I also purchased the disc at the same time and Microsoft promptly mailed it to me. Did I misunderstand your statement?

vote-for1vote-against

Works for me. It's for corporate accounts. Maybe that is everyones issue?

didn't work for my edu or my mom's work. guess I will be working with 2010 for a while longer.

vote-for1vote-against

for the first time in years, my K12 edu worked on one of these offers (it doesn't end in .edu and a lot of the education deals only work with .edu). Have purchased downloaded, installed and used. Am very happy to have found the link.

vote-for1vote-against

Is this link just going to a standard domain gateway for anyone else?
