I have gone through the trouble of using these keys and know they can be frustrating to get activated. Here is how I have had repeated success.

The steps below are for anyone that is upgrading from Windows 7,8, or 10 Home Edition to Windows 10 Pro with OEM
  1. Go here [microsoft.com] to download a Windows 10 ISO tool to create the new image for Windows 10 on a USB
  2. Install from USB like you normally would with a new install
  3. When Windows 10 is finished installing click the Windows button, type Settings and click on Settings, go to Update & security > Activation > Change Product key
  4. Use VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T as the product key. This is a Windows 10 pro default key that will initiate the upgrade process
  5. This will download the upgrade and restart your computer a couple times.
  6. Once the upgrade is finished you will want to go back in and change the key to your key that you purchased. To do this follow the instructions like before. Click the Windows button, type Settings and click on Settings, go to Update & security > Activation > Change Product key
  7. You should now have an activated version of Windows 10 Pro using your key that you purchased.

Here are some links that will give you more information if needed.

This legit? Seriously, $14 for a new OS sounds pretty good.

Sounds too good to be true... But do these expire? I'm looking to build a new pc by the end of the year.

Free if you have a Windows 7 or 8 on your machine.

Well, I got one, immediately after payment received jpg's of the labels with the Windows keys. Going to go create a VM I've been looking to make, and see if it installs okay.

Laptops usually come with an OEM sticker that has a key on it that isn't used. Unscrupulous sellers get these keys and sell them. Technically against Microsoft's EULA but not illegal as far as I know.
