Stacksocial has a lifetime license for MS Office Professional for Widows or Mac for $50.00

https://stacksocial.com/sales/mic...or-windows

I personally would not buy an annual license to any software. If any software I buy a permanent license for eventually becomes outdated for my purposes, then I will buy another permanent license of a more recent version. But I understand that some people (who must do some really high powered word processing ) feel they need their Office software improved every year. For those people this seems to be an incredible deal. As far as I know Stacksocial is legitimate and in any case too high profile to post a sketchy deal. So I believe this to be a real license. I do note that the actual seller is a company known as Topfastkeys. They supposedly have a Trustpilot rating of 4.2 out of 5 for what that is worth. But again Stacksocial is a high profile site that likely gets regularly monitored by IP lawyers and MS.

Think Stacksocial has a refund policy. Softkeyworld is cheaper, and they will just give you another key if its invalid, but if you ask for a refund, they will ignore you.

Stacksocial refund policy may not work here. From the item's page,

Terms

Unredeemed licenses can be returned for store credit within 30 days of purchase. Once your license is redeemed, all sales are final.

When you purchase you're given a key that only redeems on topfastkeys. Once you redeem that key, it gives you your actual product license.

Given that process, I'm not sure how their terms work. I don't know if you can get money back, not store credit, after redeeming the key you're given for the actual product key on their site. That is technically a redemption.

Please also check out my other posts here. Friend purchased windows version. Product key would not add to their Microsoft account, claiming invalid token on all of the Office redemption sites. Topfastkeys provides you with an img/iso of Office that your hey works with. No idea what type of key it is. The fact that it won't add to your Microsoft account like every other Microsoft product makes this very sketchy.

stacksocial product key can't redeem in your Microsoft account. However, i bought another's key for my wife's PC from softkeyworld then softkeyworld sent me a product key with Microsoft's official redeem link And I have redeemed it successfully in my Microsoft account. So My personal opinion Softkeyworld product key looks legit. Thanks

Stacksocial key worked on microsoft account..softkeyworld, in other hand give you a grace edition key.

Looks like it but you should double check:

No. The 1TB One Drive is only available through Office 365.
01-28-2022 at 01:04 PM
I only have the default 5GB One Drive, and when I was installing this it prompts me to buy the 1TB @ $6.99 per month or the 100GB for $1.99 per month, or retain the 5GB free version I have had.

it's a 3rd party seller called "Topfastkeys"... these keys are definitely bootleg.

these are usually stolen keys generated through a company's corporate license. if a large company prepays for, say, a block of 1500 licenses for their employees, the price per key is really really cheap. so some sleazy IT employees will "issue" 50-100 of those keys to themselves (steal them) and then sell the keys to off-shore resellers like "Topfastkeys" who then sell the stolen keys to you

it's unlikely that the company will ever find out as a few stolen keys is a rounding error for these big fortune 500 companies and they likely won't deactivate your key even is MS finds out... but that's why there's a "warranty" because if/when they do find out, all unactivated keys in the block will get wiped.
...A couple of things to consider:

1. Bootleg keys- if they do work (and they usually do) might eventually get de-activated.
2. "Lifetime" key, to my understanding, is for the lifetime of the device on which the key is originally assigned. To re-assign a key to another device usually requires a call to Microsoft. At least that's what has happened in the past- I've been retired for a while and things may be different now.
3. Microsoft has an online version of Office that'sfree [microsoft.com]
4. There's also Libre Office [libreoffice.org] , Which has always been free. With a few setting changes, it will function just like MS Office- Saving files with the same MS extensions (.docx, .xlsx, etc.)
I wouldn't count on these lasting very long. I bought keys from a similar deal, also from a seller that appeared to be reputable, only to have MS deactivate them after a few months.

Doesn't using Visa/MC offer a level of protection if this license is bogus?

1-year warranty on license keys
it might mean that they will guarantee the key to work if you activate within one year of purchase — but if you wait longer than that to activate the key then they do not guaranteed it will work

If this is the case, can the company view the files under those licenses?

For me the real benefit of Office 365 is 1TB of Onedrive that i can share with up to 6 accounts (could even get 6TB if you make 6 accounts). Usually get it for around $50 during the holidays so 6TB/year for $50 is a good deal imo. Getting the office suite is a bonus in my use case.

I bought this for Office 2019 a few years ago and it still works fine. I just installed it on a new laptop a few weeks ago.
