Office 2007 Home & Student Edition (Dec 2009 deal)
« on: December 08, 2009, 12:49:01 PM »
Microsoft is offering Office Home & Student 2007 for $100 until 26 Dec 2009.  Home & Student include 3 PC licenses.  This is $50 off Microsoft's regular price - I don't know how this might compare with other retailers.

The link I have is for USA - I'm not sure if other locales have similar deals or how closely MS enforces the locale when you try to purchase:

The difference is, Newegg's price might be higher an hour from now.

fwiw, the black Friday deal was cheaper by $20.

I still feel there is no reason to buy Office Student edition as anyone allowed to buy it can purchase http://www.microsoft...teal-us/default.aspx

Not exactly - Office Home and Student can be purchased by anyone, but is only licensed for non-commercial use.

The "Ultimate Steal" offer is only available to university students.  However, since you get a license for Office Ultimate, I assume that the use of the software isn't restricted to non-commercial use (not to mention that you get several more Office apps than in the Home & Student Edition).

There's no doubt that the "Ultimate Steal" is a far better offer, but strictly speaking it's not available to everyone.

The Ulitmate Steal version requires proof that you are a student whereas anyone can by the Home & Student Edition.

FWIW the H&S Office has been available in the UK for ages at well under retail price (and even much less than $100US). You can get it even cheaper by combining the purchase with some hardware devices (Amazon has a special offer voucher displayed on on my products).
