Microsoft Office Home & Student $20.42 @ Kinguin

$20.42
0 Deal Score
15,187 Views
You can download Microsoft 2016 Office for PC, Home & Student Version for $21.49
Code: SKINJOKER will reduce the price to $20.42

You can opt for an additional $5.97 for Buyer Protection, in case your product key does not work.

This is my first SD post, and first time using this site, Kinguin, but the product seems to be working perfectly. Seems legit? And, the price is great. Costs $119.99 at Microsoft.

This Home/Student version does NOT include Outlook, Publisher, and Access. For those programs, you need to get either Office 365, or the Office Professional. I believe you can also get the Office Professional at Kinguin, for about $35. The same code above might work?

Obviously, no shipping or tax, since it's a download and product key.

Good Luck!

**ADDENDUM**

If you have trouble installing this Product Key, or you get a message that this key has been used the maximum number of times, go back and try the Telephone Activation method.
You will have to call a phone number and follow a few voice prompts. It will then give you the option of using a smart phone. Microsoft voice system will send you a text message link
to a Microsoft mobile website that will allow you to successfully activate your software that you've already downloaded onto your PC. This would be the FREE software that you run
On Trial for limited time period, before entering an activation key. PM me if you have any questions, or if I'm not being clear.

I think so? I found it, from a PC Build video by Tom's Hardware on YouTube. They sell a lot of keys, mainly games, but also Win10, and MS Office, and probably other stuff. I didn't need Outlook, Publisher, and Access, and it works for me so far.
Also, they send you an email of an image, of a barcode and product key. Then, you have to actually go to the Microsoft Product page, and enter the code, and then download the program directly from Microsoft.
So, that made me feel better, that I'm not accidentally downloading some virus. Hope this helps. G'Luck.

To my understanding these are legit OEM keys MS sells to companies other countries. Windows isn't sold in all countries for the same price.

Ahh, now I see why you were asking in the other thread.

This does not seem legit at all. If you don't care about being legit, save even more money by using ebay.

For example, one of the products they are selling is Office 2016 Professional Plus, which isn't available for purchase to end users. There is no such thing as Professional Plus "retail." For these Home and Student keys, I am unaware of how that scheme works, but when someone has a seemingly unlimited inventory of a product at 1/5 (Home Edition) to 1/10 (Pro Plus) of the actual price, you know they aren't doing it all and taking a huge loss.

One thing I found amusing, In their activation details, the last step says "Enjoy your newly acquired Office suite!"
I don't think I have ever referred something purchased legitimately as "newly acquired."

I wanted to have an actual retail license from Microsoft so I can move it build to build, but they make it so damn difficult to know what's legit anymore I'm tempted to just do this grey market oem crap.

That free version assumes that your institution has paid Microsoft with an agreement granting their students access to the software.

And it had to be updated every 365 days, hence the product name...

For those asking if this is legit, it is. I've used this site multiple times and their keys have never failed. I have used both of the Windows 10 pro keys in different builds and I have never had a problem.

Yes, the keys usually do work. I guess it just depends on what you consider the definition of legit to mean.

If you think about it, how would a business model look where you can necessitate charging an extra $5 for a guarantee, and tell the customers that don't pay the extra 5 bucks that they are on their own if it doesn't work. Why would they have situations that didn't work if it were all legit?
