Hi All,

They closed the free upgrade program technically many years ago. But there was a loophole. However that was blocked as of about a month and a half ago.

Microsoft explicitly states in their T&Cs that genuine keys are not distributed via retail channels (Woot) without a box/packaging.
In other words, the fact that Woot is emailing you a code means it's not genuine. Sure, it may work, but it's the same as those $3 codes you get on eBay. Gray market and/or enterprises licenses being distributed outside Microsoft's T&Cs.

Can't believe this thing is FP.

Per Microsoft's own site/language, they only sell/distribute retail licenses as a USB stick, with retail boxed packaging and a COA.

With the exception of Product Key Cards (PKC's) distributed with COA's, Microsoft does not distribute products keys as standalone products. If you see a listing on an auction site, online classified ad, or other online page advertising product keys for sale, it's a good indication that the keys are likely stolen or counterfeit. If you were to purchase and use a stolen or counterfeit product key to activate Windows installed on your PC, the key may not work for activation, may already be in use on another PC, or it might be blocked from use later by Microsoft when the key is reported stolen. The best way to get everything you expect up front is to buy genuine Microsoft software preinstalled on a new PC or genuine Microsoft software from an authorized reseller. ​
