Microsoft Office for Students?

lexluthor 1,901 302 May 22, 2016 at 06:51 AM
Where can I get a cheap, legitimate copy of Microsoft Office for a college student?

My daughter's college does NOT qualify for the discounts here:

Not looking for a Microsoft Office alternative.

Many companies qualify for Microsoft home use program and can get office for $9.95. Check if you or your friends qualify, and buy for your daughter

If that doesn't work out for you, I have an MS Office 365 key.

Not sure if I have too many friends I can think of working for large companies.

If the specific college doesn't have a deal with Microsoft, there isn't really much in the way of student discounts?

Thanks, but think I'd prefer the standalone option. Office 2010 would more than suffice.

Interesting. Got a packet from the college this week and they apparently provide Office 365 and have the ability to download/install all of the programs. I guess that will suffice for the next 4 years then.

I remember they used to be quite cheap if you have a student ID or have a friend who is a student to buy it for you.

Or just download a torrent file? :p
