Those are probably same semi-legal bulk OEM licenses, which are selling for $3-5 at ebay. I would advise not using them with your main Microsoft account.

yes they are legitimate numbers that are recognized as legal license keys by windows. they work and update just fine. they are called "semi-legal" because microsoft issued these license for installation on new equipment not for retail sale. White theoretically microsoft is able to identify such licenses and disable them I have never heard of that happening.

If I use it in my current machine that is running W7, would you know if I would have issues to use it later in my Black Friday upgrade?

Where do you find it $3-$5 on ebay? I've been buying those when I need them on clients' PC, they are mostly around $10. (Win10 pro key) Please let me know, I can buy a few.

EDIT: OK I found a couple at ~$5.50. If there is any in the range of $3-$5, please let me know. Thanks.

If you have win7 and it's been authenticated you can still upgrade to win10 free. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/a...s10upgrade

If you need a Windows 7 key and want to upgrade to Windows 10, you may have a spare key waiting to be used. OEM machines such as Dell, HP, etc that have a key sticker on them, that key may never have been used. If the machine never had a reinstall, or was only recovered from factory disks or recovery partition, the sticker key is unused. OEM's used a technology to mass activate, and the keys were never used, but had to be supplied with the machine. Many times these keys will activate a new Windows 10 installation. Or use it to activate Windows 7 and use the upgrade path for assistive technologies. These keys are agnostic as long as the correct version of Windows 7 is installed.

Practically all listings are "legit", as "legit" as grey-market keys can be. If you want 110% legit, you must buy directly from Microsoft or an official Microsoft Reseller at full retail price(like $100 - $200, not $13 or $3). I would not spend more than the lowest priced listing on eBay for one of these grey-market keys.
