MS Office Ultimate for only $59
« on: May 09, 2008, 09:18:23 PM »
For those of you who still use or want to use MS Office, here is a steal. Microsoft is selling their $680 MS Ultimate Office suite for only $59. Now this is an academic offer that is only for students. So, let's all put our heads together a figure out how www.donationcoder.com is actually a university.  :P

Back in September, we wrote about “The Ultimate Steal” from Microsoft because they were offering students the option to purchase Office Ultimate 2007 for just $59 bucks. Considering it retails for $680, this deal is a 91% discount. At the time they said the offer would end on April 30th, but as it turns out, they extended the offer a few days and now its set to end on May 16th, a week from today. If you’ve been considering purchasing Office 2007, there’s no better time than now to do it.

UK one finished last week. Very good deal, but as a member of staff at a university I get it free anyway.

Also, only for US citizens,

- yes, U.S. citizens only.

In Denmark the asking price is more than $1300
- yes, that is more than thirteen hundred dollars!
[Edited: One company is even charging $1556!]
This makes me want to say a lot of things...
but I will hold on to my breath, and declare the obvious:
$59 is an  E X T R E M E L Y  good price!

Also Italy and France are still going.

Interesting actually that Spain and UK have finished - I thought under the single market rules it was illegal to sell things in one country in the EU but not in others?

I got Office 2007 Enterprise through the college I work for for $16 Cdn. Of course, I get laid off every April so I probably shouldn't be using it over the summer... but what the hey!

Seriously, this is why I would have jumped on the Ultimate version for students... and I missed my chance for both Canada and the UK offers  :mad:

Oh well.
Yeah, trees don't grow on money either.

LOL - No.  Quite the opposite by the looks of many of your posts!  Though unlike a toady, you definitely knock them down where they fail to perform  :Thmbsup: You know, like media players <cough>AlSong</cough>
