Amazon will give you a $50 gift card when you sign up for Microsoft 365 Family

Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be over, but there are still some great deals available. Right now, if you purchase a year of Microsoft 365 Family, you can get a $50 Amazon gift card. A year of Microsoft 365 Family only costs $100 (opens in new tab), so getting $50 is almost like getting it for half price, as long as you already plan to spend an additional $50 on Amazon at some point in the future.

You might not recognize the Microsoft 365 branding yet. Microsoft previously had a subscription called Office 365 but moved to Microsoft 365 as it expanded into more areas. Microsoft 365 still gets you the Office suite, but it also gets you a lot more. The family plan of Microsoft 365 gets you access for up to six people.

With Microsoft 365, you get Microsoft's premium apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote. You also get the PC versions of Access and Publisher. On top of that, you get up to 1TB of OneDrive storage for each user (up to six people).

Microsoft also has some newer tools that come with Microsoft 365 Family, such as Microsoft Editor and Microsoft Family Safety.

Microsoft 365 isn't limited to Windows either. You can use many of Microsoft's apps on Windows, macOS, iPadOS, iOS, and Android.

One thing to note about this offer from Amazon is that it will set you up for auto-renewal. You can cancel this if you'd like, but the deal sets you up to pay for and receive Microsoft 365 each year.

  • Does anyone know, if you can buy multiple years.
  • Unfortunately not. It immediately activates, so I'm contacting support at the moment to try and reimburse my purchase.
  • Correction, it does immediately activate, but they eventually grant you a code to be redeem with Microsoft. As of right now, I was able to layer this 12-mo deal on a previous promotion through Costco. This was a little bit of a pain, but good luck!
  • I bought one and it stacked on my current subscription but now it converted everything to be managed under Amazon... Which is not the biggest deal but I don't want it linked directly to Amazon. Is this reversible while keeping the added time?
  • Same thing happened to me. I guess it's "you get what you pay for". Minor annoyance, but likely not something I'll purchase again.
