Buyer beware, these are not legitimate keys, and can be deactivated anytime. You will be out $30 when that happens. Also keep an eye on your credit card statement as people have complained about fraud after dealing with the seller (gamestop is not the seller, a foreign 3rd party is)

You can easily check if these are retail keys after installing and activating. Microsoft gives you the instructions on how to do this here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us...cense-type

Here below is a cut-and-paste from the terminal window of what someone get with a key from this deal. (The ID fields sanitized to protect my own license, of course). Some people are getting MSDN subscription Retail version of MS Office 2021 ProProfessional.

MSDN subscription keys are NOT supposed to be resell and should ONLY be use by the single MSDN subscriber.

Yet another StackSocial skin.

See all the dozens of other posts promoting this grey market license key junk
Can this be installed on multiple machines, or is it a lifetime license for the machine it's installed on?

EDIT: Just reread the post and answered my own question:

"One-time purchase installed on 1 Windows PC for use at home or work"
It isn't GameStop. It's GameSpot. So, you're not buying from a retailer.
