Must be the same one. This is what I saw

Microsoft 365 Personal - Box Pack - 1 Person - 12 Month https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0869HH5TT/

Also, the Target version is a keycard like the link I posted too.

I actually get it more for the 1TB OneDrive. The suite is a nice bonus.

Exactly. I use office 2016 or open office. I am not going to pay a subscription for Word and Excel unless they start coming with an AI that can create my documents for me.

Apache OpenOffice (formerly Oracle OpenOffice b4 they sold it off)
And OpenLibre are amazing.

FREE! And does everything that office does, except for empty your wallet...

Ummm no. It does not do everything that Office does.

You could say that it contains basic functionality of Excel and Word, etc. And for most people that is all that they need. Just like Google Docs or Sheets is good enough for most people. However, it is a far, far cry from replicating Word or Excel.

Can you elaborate on this for the other readers? I'm sure they're intrigued.

Sure it doesn't have the fisher price style of logos, badly organized on your screen. It has neatly organized dropdown menu buttons to click. I assume they chose this neat, simplistic approach, since they assume that people know how to read words. I much prefer this method to the fisher price logo style, and it's also the original reason I actually started using OpenOffice (I already had MS Office at the time, but the badly organized fiaher price logo buttons were driving me nuts)

I don't understand why people buy 365, an inferior version that runs on web browsers. Just buy 2019 Office Pro Plus, one time payment and done, more apps and more powerful tools.
I would rather just use Google docs.

worth of buying office 365 because it has a yearly subscription fee. so I think office 2019 pro plus will be much better because it's a one-time payment, no need to pay any yearly or monthly fee.

Unless they've changed recently, Office 365 is downloaded and installed to the computer just like the annual versions, but basically Office 365 has a background online launcher that updates the suite and checks for your digital entitlement (basically their online authentication system that makes sure you bought and own a license/subscription). Think Adobe CC, where you're still downloading entire programs, but you have to pay an monthly/annual fee.

Yes, it also includes an online option to use the program through a web browser because they felt the need to compete with Google Docs, but the downloaded/installed version is basically full-on Office 2019 or the latest year iteration with newer feature updates (that are usually included in the next year release, 365 subscribers basically just pay for the advance preview).

In any case, besides that, I agree, the 2019 or year-edition versions are generally a better value overall for $50 extra (if at MSRP). However, 365 goes on sale quite often in comparison, so oftentimes it is the better deal at a third of the price of MSRP Office 2019, especially because many 365 licenses work on multiple computers (desktop + laptop) while the 2019/annual versions are supposedly a single computer license only.
