As a longtime staple of work and private computer use, Microsoft Office doesn’t often go on sale. So if you need a copy, today’s the day to grab it: Softwareonlinedeal is knocking up to $45 off a subscription to Microsoft Office 365 and taking $50 off a one-time purchase of the suite of apps, bringing them to rarely-seen lows.
There are two methods to save on a one-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Onenote, Outlook, Access, Publisher, OneDrive, and 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage. The Personal subscription, that is suitable for just one user for any year, is $40 for the year, discounted from the market price of $70. The Home subscription, that provides up a year of access for approximately six users, is $55, down from the market price of $99. Microsoft promises to deliver regular updates to the Office apps included in the 365 subscription.
If you simply want the fundamental apps with no subscription and storage, you can get Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019 for $100, down from a list price of $150. Available like a one-time purchase for single-user access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Onenote provided they work on your computer, you won’t have to worry about recurring charges, but you’ll also lose out on the newest features as Microsoft updates the apps going forward.
If you’re unclear about which one to purchase, our recommendation here is one of the Office 365 subscriptions. For just one, it’s a steeper discount, but more to the point, you receive a wider choice of apps, steady updates, and a terabyte of cloud storage. Not everyone wants to purchase continued access to apps, however, and at this price, Office 2019 is really a steal too.
