Reminder: Office 365 deal on the Lumia 640 and 640 XL expires June 30 in the UK

Back at Mobile World Congress when Microsoft announced the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, along for the ride was a free one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal. That offer was never going to last forever and this is a friendly reminder that time is almost up in the UK.

If you don't buy a phone by the time June 30 is done, you can't get the freebie.

Microsoft is also doing its bit to remind everyone through the UK Conversations Twitter account (including jogging our memories), but the good news is that it's only the phone purchase that needs to be done by June 30. You can claim your subscription up until August 14.

The same deadlines may be present in other countries in Europe and further afield, so be sure to check with your local Microsoft Store if in doubt.
