Cheapest way to buy Microsoft Office 2010??

1,762 313 February 13, 2011 at 06:21 AM
Hey everybody I just got a new computer and I need to get Office 2010. I am a student in college as well if that helps the pricing. I was wondering where is the cheapest possible place to either buy a product key or an actual copy of Office 2010. It doesn't matter what version of Office but I would just like the best possible price. Please let me know guys and Thanks in advance!

As you are a student, your school probably has a MSDNAA [microsoft.com] agreement - and you should get Microsoft Office 2010 at a heavily discounted rate if not for free.

What school do you go to? The larger schools, especially state schools, have Microsoft products available cheaper. University of Texas has it for $34, for example. Texas A&M has it for $20. Otherwise, if you are a student but your school doesn't have an agreement, then you'll be paying about $115 for it.

Also don't forget that http://www.openoffice.org and http://www.libreoffice.org are both free!

I had some friends refer me to: https://wholesalesoftwareprovider.com/index.php

Instead of buying the software, you are buying a key for it so it is a lot cheaper.

Sorry man, no WAY is that site legit. The license is the expensive part of the software, not the media & the package. You can't sell a $4000 software package for $49.95 [wholesalesoftwareprovider.com] just because it's not in the MS box.

If you're buying from here you're NOT getting a legitimate license.

I don't think this'd be useful for you, because probably your office doesn't participate in this program, but Microsoft has this Home User Program for professionals, and if your organization participates, you could get Office 2010 for $10. I got it that way!

seems like it's the going price on amazon [amazon.com] (sold by amazon for $50)

This is the most accurate and inexpensive way. I just got it (free) from my organization. You need an organization code.

That's the Developer edition - only for learning & testing (and retails for $37/license). The one they're selling is the Enterprise Edition, which is actually not even $4k as they were listing, but from $8500- $27,500 [microsoft.com], depending on how it's licensed (per user or per seat).

Here's per user on Amazon for 25 users [amazon.com]
