Today over at Amazon, you can take advantage of a sale the retailer is having on various Microsoft Office 365 subscriptions. The discounts vary by package but if you chose the Office 365 Home or Office 365 Personal, it gives you free access to the full features of the Office apps for Android on your phone or tablet. Even if you are already an Office 365 subscriber, you can take advantage of the sale.
Office 365 Home allows you to install the full Office suite on up to 5 PCs or Macs plus 5 tablets and 5 phones. That package is on sale today for $89.99, a savings of 10%. It is delivered to you by download (you will get the key to add the suite to your Microsoft Office account) and this isn’t just the web versions but the full PC or Mac versions too.
If you don’t need that many installs, take a look at the Office 365 Personal edition. It is $69.99 and gives you access to one install on a PC or Mac as well as 1 tablet and 1 phone. That price is also
for the digital download but if you don’t mind waiting and have a physical key card shipped to you, the price goes down to $45.78. Nope, I don’t get it either but at that price, it’s a steal.
For those of you, like me, who already have an Office 365 subscription, you can still take advantage of this sale. When you purchase it and get your product key, just go to your Office account and add the key. It will then add another year to your account.
Finally, as I’ve mentioned, when you subscribe at either level, you have access to the Android versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, all completely feature unlocked. The apps are free anyway but they are limited in some of the things you can do without a subscription.
As with most Amazon sales, this one is for a limited time (today) or until quantities run out.
