Deal on Microsoft Office Professional 2021 for $40

—–7/7/23 Price has dropped to $30!! Good for 8 more days !—-

This great deal was available months ago and has now returned.

For a one time fee of $40 you get Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, OneNote, Publisher, Access and Teams for Windows 10 or 11, or the same products minus MS Publisher and MS Access- for Mac operating systems of OS 11 (Big Sur) or later.

I believe this qualifies as a great deal since Microsoft is selling it for $440 directly, and the normal minimal yearly subscription for Microsoft Office is $70. I looked it over when it first arrived and this is not one of the many software purchasing scams out there, but it’s still a good idea to use one of the available payment methods that protect your purchases.

The deal is for a “lifetime” subscription, but that means the lifetime of the PC, so if you replace your PC you may not be able to transfer the license.  The CNET.com folks ( from where I first heard of the the deal) warns that Microsoft could “terminate” the license, but they’ve have success with StackSocial’s previous deals since 2022. Another note is the license must be activated within 30 days, so it won’t help if you’re not ready to install it right away.

I don’t recommend paying to upgrade just to have the current version, since many old versions of Microsoft Office work perfectly for people that use them, but if you are frequently running into issues because of your older version of Office this may be the right deal for you without falling into Microsoft’s yearly subscription model.
