  • Repeat after me: "It's not worldwide if it excludes a bunch of countries."

  • This is not a deal. It's a standard inclusion with Office 365. You may as well create a deal for "FREE 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage" whilst you're at it.

    • That is true. Will leave it for the admins. I had my subscription for a long time and never knew I could click through to claim.

      • You may as well make up a deal with "Free Microsoft Word and Excel with the subscription of Office 365"..
        How can you claim an inclusion within a product set to be a bargain?

  • Ongoing deal in case people weren't aware.

    No it's not, you pay for it as part of you Office 365 subscription.

  • Just activated my 1 month free trial for Office 365 and then activated the 60 mins free skype calls. The Office trial does ask for genuine Credit Card details, but it seems as though you can immediately cancel the recurring billing and still keep the trial for Office and 60 minutes free calls for One Month.

  • No Nepal :(

  • So is China included or excluded? It’s in both lists?

    • Same with Korea and Taiwan

      You can call China from another country that is in the list (eg. Australia). However, no free skype minutes for Chinese users in China. eg. if you mom living in China pays for the subscription, she will not have the free skype minutes.

  • Do people still Skype, last time I did that I had a My Space page?

  • This is not a deal its a standard feature of office 365. https://products.office.com/en-us/compare-all-microsoft-offi...

  • (or with free Office 365 Trial, can cancel immediately - thanks @steven6)

    if u cancel, does the promo still run recurringly each month indefinitely or will it stop after one month because you're no longer subbed to office 365?

    • I'm pretty sure you only get the one month. You could probably create a new account each month if you're a real ozbargainer

    I have been using office 365 for a couple of years, but never know of this "ongoing deal". Thanks op.

  • Used this yesterday whilst travelling overseas. Already knew about it but a nice free way to use data to call foxtel to renew a discount on my plan before next month's price rise.

    I do agree with others though that there are alot of exclusions eg mobiles in some locations, and it's really just part of office 365.

  • They recently tried to retire the "Classic Skype" client, pulled out after a massive backlash. But keep in mind they are no-doubt going to try again.

    The new "app" version is pure rubbish. They are trying to be more like Skype, Discord, WhatsApp etc. So no separating out multiple IM conversations (one big window), and no running separate versions for multiple accounts simultaneously. Also I find the new version freezes constantly in video calls, requiring the process to be killed.

    I managed to argue Consumer Law with support and got all my credit refunded (they initially refused as it's been partially used and was outside their expiry for refund) as the new client is not fit for purpose.

  • Note this is only available for Home or Personal Office 365 subscriptions. If you are paying more for a business plan (or education), you should keep paying for your damn calls.

  • nice deal. Thanks!
