Deal Details

I got an email at work today telling my about the Microsoft Home Use Program where I could purchase Microsoft Office Professional 2010 for $9.95 + Tax. My employer has a bulk licensing agreement with Microsoft as most med-large companies will have so you may be able to score this price as well.

You will need to provide a valid work email address and your companies program code. If you don't have a program code look for "Don't know your program code, click here." and you can enter your work email address and it will attempt to send you one.

Edit: as rturner1 found this may work with your universities email address as well

PC/MAC versions available for download.

You can also purchase Project or Visio for $9.95 each.

This is now working with facebook email addresses. See wiki.

Still works with a youremail@myspace.com email address
code is 2288AD508F


FYI - This is a 32-bit version of office. Not the 64-bit one.

11:05PM 1/11 PST - Some people are reporting bad keys.
Those who claim bad keys, are you getting that message when you try to activate, if so, give it a few days then try again...sometimes the server is hammered and it doesnt activate correctly and will work just fine later on...also make sure any other versions of office you may have on your computer are completely uninstalled...sometimes uninstalling office and reinstalling itthe key will work...

DEAD WITH FB ACCOUNTS
The following problem(s) exist:
•We are unable to qualify you with the email domain and program code you have provided. You are likely no longer eligible for the program. If you feel you have reached this in error, please confirm with your benefits administrator that the program code and email domain being used are correct.




While this deal is in violation of the terms of service Microsoft does not make a habit of prosecuting end users UNLESS YOU TRY TO RESELL THE LICENSE ON EBAY ETC.

You either need to work for a participating company or university and have a valid email address with them. Some people are reporting using your facebook email address works.
youremail@facebook.com
code: 4B8FD6410C


To activate facebook email, go here if you haven't already.
www.facebook.com/about/messages
Go to messages and be sure to activate your facebook email prior to requesting the mail. Also check your facebook spam folder.
spam folder direct link http://www.facebook.com/messages/other/?query=is%3Aspam

Having a hard time getting the message to show up in Facebook? There should be no wait, it's INSTANT, read on!
If you can't get the e-mail at your Facebook address, check your privacy settings!

Go to Privacy Settings, then "How You Connect" and make sure that "Who can send you Facebook messages?" is set to "Everyone" otherwise it won't work!

FACEBOOK USERS - check your spam folder under messages, that's where it is being sent for many. Then click on message from Lorraine and then at the top click expand! Reps to mpetey26. Should work for multiple computers. I got this last year from @gmail accounts and have it on two laptops.

You can purchase the MAC version instead and have the option of purchasing Visio 2010 Premium for $9.95 more.

I've bought one license, how many computers can I install this on? Two.

To further elaborate on the above, you can install on one PC and one mobile device (i.e. laptop/netbook/tablet). Here's an excerpt from the license terms:
2. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS.
a. One Copy per Device. You may install one copy of the software on one device. That device is the “licensed device.”
b. Licensed Device. You may only use one copy of the software on the licensed device at a time.
c. Portable Device. You may install another copy of the software on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device.
d. Separation of Components. The components of the software are licensed as a single unit. You may not separate the components and install them on different devices.
e. Alternative Versions. The software may include more than one

LOL. Many company will even buy you the applications. This should be posted in your company's internal mail or message system.

This is pointless as this is for employees of company with a VALID email address. The activation code gets sent to your work email and usually is limited to one per address. This is how my company does it. Plus, not a great idea if your company were to somehow pin it on you as I am sure they state that you should not share this deal outside of the company.

I wouldn't have put this out for the general public in the first place...eventually, these programs get abused by the wrong person and the employees of the company of which someone was able to abuse this programs lose these privileges because it was thought to be a good idea to share Nono
