  • £34 for the year :-o "wen in UK?"
  • Sorry. Double post
  • Edit it with sth else :)
  • No sweet deals for business users?
  • Finally !! I was wondering why WC isn't posting about this.
    Hope MSPU, WinBeta, Neowin follows.
    Promotions like this are the only ways to REDUCE pirated copies !!!
    Gonna get two copies of Office 2016 :D
  • Hey Harish, just wanted to ask. Once bought, where's the actual download link to get it installed? And also, is it possible to keep a copy in a pen drive for easy install later (without an internet connection because this is big in size) just like Windows 10 ISO ?
    Thanks ! And Happy Diwali !! :)
  • If you're buying Office 2016, then it's locked to the hardware (like Windows 10), so you won't be able to load it onto a flash drive. As for the download link, you can just install the standard versions of Office from Microsoft and validate using the key.
  • So that means, if I get a new laptop or desktop I won't be able to install Office 2016 if I've already used it on another PC some time ago and don't use that old PC again?
    I don't think so because I still have an old Office 2007 disc with activation code and have used it on 3 DIFFERENT PC's since purchase. Every time I activate on a new PC, it just works (i haven't tried using it on the old ones but I assume those copies would automatically DE-ACTIVATE).
    Also, i didn't mean 'copy' my activated Office. I meant i want an installation media for safe keeping to install Office without an internet connection if required and activate later.
    Thanks !
  • I have Office 2013. Any significant difference with the Office 2016?
  • No need to buy if it runs fine on your machine, is the same thing, just looks a bit different.
  • More user friendly for touch devices
  • And 1tb on OneDrive. Each of the 5 users in home can also install on 5 of their devices and upgraded to each me release.
  • What happens to the subscription price after the 1-year period? Which price am I going to be billed at that point? The same discounted price or the regular price?
  • You can purchase up to five years worth of Office 365 and stack them. The last time it went on sale in Canada I bought nine years worth (four for one account, five for another).
  • May do this as well
  • A quick warning: Just bough a license for Office Home & Student 2016 for Mac. But I'm unable to download the software with my german Microsoft accounts. It just gives me an error message, saying the key is not vaild for my region.
  • Then change your region
  • That's like $55 CAD / $40 USD? Sweet deal for sure.
  • Renewed it.
