Thread Details

To celebrate GE Healthcare's rollout of Office 2010 and to help get you up to speed on the new productivity suite, GE negotiated an employee price of only $9.95 (price may vary slightly by local currency) for Microsoft's Office Professional Plus 2010 "Home Use Program". The suite includes: Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Access, SharePoint Workspace, InfoPath, OneNote, and Publisher.


To place your personal order, visit http://hup.microsoft.com/and type in promotion code B8297A4945.

This is only for GE employees/contractors/interns (anyone with a valid @ge.com email Id). This can be shared too, that is, if you know some one who works for GE, and is not interested in this deal, you can take his/her help to get this deal through their email ID, there is a provision during the purchase to send the S/W download link to a personal email ID. It seems one GE email ID can only be used once.

This is my first post, please take it easy on me.

Thanks!

This is only valid for as long as you work for GE.

If you cease being employed by GE (or don't work for them at all) the license is not valid and you might as well pirate it. There's no difference.

According to wikpedia GE has 304000 employees, surely there must be a John.Smith@ge.com or a mike.brown@ge.com Smilie

My employer offers this as well. You actually need access to the @ge.com email address in order to take advantage of this offer. They send the license key and the download link to the email address.

Not really a slick deal, just a benefit for GE employees (or any company that offers Microsoft Home Use Program)

I picked it up over the summer through my employer. I'd love to get another copy for my laptop, however.

not true.


excerpt from mshup elua:

Limitation on License Purchases and Transfers; Term of MSHUP Licenses.

Microsoft® software is licensed through MSHUP solely for the use of qualifying employees of Microsoft® volume licensing customers participating in the Microsoft® Home Use Program. For purposes of MSHUP, a qualifying employee is a licensed user of a copy of a MSHUP-eligible desktop application currently enrolled in Software Assurance coverage. A qualifying employee may order only one MSHUP license per software title. MSHUP licenses are non-transferable.

You acknowledge that your right to use Microsoft® software under an MSHUP license will expire upon the earlier of
(a) termination of your employment with the volume licensing customer through which you gained access to MSHUP, or
(b) the expiration or termination of Software Assurance coverage for the corresponding copy of the MSHUP-eligible desktop application that you use at work.


the 'feature' about sending a link to a different email is so you can send it to your home email in case you cannot, or are not allowed to, access your mshup-qualifying work email account at home.... definitely not for sharing.

The post clearly states (in the title) it's for folks with a @ge.com e-mail address.

I don't have one, but still give a thumbs-up & rep, as it's a great deal, and a well-written post. Yes, not everyone qualifies, but as the Op clearly articulates who does/doesn't...

This deal is AWFUL! My work provides 1-2 free copies of ALL major MS products. Picked up Win 7 64-bit and Office 2010 for $0. Now that's a slickdeal!

(I still don't think this deserves a thumbs down though!)

This is an old deal, the only diff. is that a specific company was named. Fair mistake though.
