expired [Home Use Program] Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2019 (Win10) $27.60 | Office Home & Business 2019 $20.93 (Mac) @ Microsoft

1870

Just bought a new Dell laptop so needed MS Office. Looked up HUP through my workplace and noticed that MS Office 2019 was still available even though it was to be replaced by Office 365. Whilst the prices are not the cheapest, it beats paying a yearly subscription fee for Office 365.

    Weird, I had Office 2016 installed through HUP and it automatically updated itself to 2019 last week? Not complaining, just unusual.

      Really? Automatic Update? Sounds amazing… Let me try to update hmmm.

      •  

        I have an MSDN subscription and my install updated too. The new icons, which look nice, got my attention.

        The update is far from amazing really. There's not that much difference between Office 2016 and 2019.

        •  

          That'd be M$: Change little
          but insure a 3 year spread,
          between name suffixes:

          • 2016 => 2019

          PS An earlier edition of MSDN
          supplied developer-only editions
          of applications "not for business
          use"

          Has that changed?

      Really depends on what your work/school was using. If it was Office 365 E3/E5 for example then a 2019 update would happen.

      I would be complaining!

      2019 vs 2016 has reduced functionality when it comes to OneNote anyway.

      It's the reason I've been chasing a 2016 version

      • +1 vote

        It's no big deal. Office 2019 doesn't include OneNote and the auto update simply leaves OneNote 2016 installed.

    Mac version is cheaper than the Windows version? Way to look after your customers, Microsoft!

    I've never bought Office before, but isn't $27.60 EXTREMELY cheap?

    I remember prices were in the hundreds?

    • +4 votes

      It's extremely CHEAP.
      I wanted to buy 10 but I couldn't

    • +4 votes

      According to MS, it usually costs $810 so this price is a saving of 97%.

    • +2 votes

      It is. It’s because the employer of anyone that can access HUP is paying MS substantially more so this is a perk the business can pass onto employees.

    • +2 votes

      It is, but it's been even cheaper before

    • -1 vote

      I get free use at home, so yes…it's not the cheapest :-)

    •  

      RRP of Office has always been high for standalone editions.

      The HUP used to be about $15 though, so its increased a decent amount but it is still a good saving compared to buying the standalone software at RRP or paying for Office 365 if you don't need it.

    Looks like it will be not available for everyone: "A Home Use Program discount on this product is only available if your employer’s Home Use Program administrator has selected you for this product specific discount."

    Not working for me :-(

    I tried to click that Pro-Plus link at the bottom of the page but it goes to a dead URL now. only options available are the yearly/monthly subs

    If your company uses O365, just download it from the portal and log in using your work credentials. It can be activated on 5 devices and costs you nothing.

    This is a duplicate of https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/443931, it's only available to employees of certain companies. Most (including Australian Government) have moved to O365.

    Just use LibreOffice or stick with Office 2013.

      this one doesn't prompt for 'Organisation's Program Code'

        I'm in the Australian government and can confirm that 365 was displayed. It was when I strolled down the page that I saw 2019.

        •  

          same for me - can confirm it would let me purchase it also - i havn't yet but it lets you checkout at the discounted price.

          I am also with the government.

          State Government here.

          Takes me straight to O365 offering. Clinking on Office Professional Plus 2019 link just gives me "We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found.
          The URL may be misspelled or the page you're looking for is no longer available."

      Been using OpenOffice/LibreOffice for more than 15 years both at work and home. It's one of my most used software so I made money donation to The Document Foundation for their solid work.

      For general home use, definitely see no reason to buy MS Office.

        I do. The word processor and spreadsheet application both suck and dont compare with Word (formatting abilities) or Excel (pivot tables and macros).

      •  

        I used OpenOffice/derivatives years ago throughout uni, until I had to write a paper to finish degree. OO was slow and hardly useful compared to Office 2007-2010 back then.

        Curious to check what they offer these days, but from back then I remembered there was no better alternative to MS.

    I wanna know if I change a computer, can I still activate the code?

      I've never had a problem when I've uninstalled from one computer, then re-installed on another.

      •  

        The code is now attached to a Microsoft account. Would need to log into that account from Office to activate.

    I can only get office 365. The link on the page after getting the email for Office 2019 takes me to a dead link.

  •  

    Was super excited for this deal (I'm happy with google docs my wife can't handle not using office) - but seems to be $639 for me… :(

    Purchase went through, thanks!

    Hello, I have done this recently. 2016 used to work ok but 2019 has been replaced by O365 (In Australia)
    So what I did is chose USA instead of Australia as they seem to still have access to 2019. I put a dummy home address somewhere in the USA (they dont send you anything via mail) they send you all the details and downloads via email.

    If I chose Australia instead of USA it would default to giving me O365 subscription.

    I think the broken link is due to a typo in the URL.

    CFQ7TTC0K7CS should be CFQ7TTC0K7C5

    Try: https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/p/office-professional-2019/C...

    Either that, or it's not available through your organisation, as the price for Office 2019 Pro jumps to nearly $700 for me.

    •  

      Thats a different product. The one that get discounted is office professional plus 2019

    • +3 votes

      This takes you to the Office Professional 2019 page (not professional plus) and doesn't appear to be discounted.

  •  

    Doesn't work for me either 2019 professional plus leads to a broken link.

    By default, you can only see the Office 365, you need to scroll down a bit and click on MS Office Professional Tab and it will come up. I got MS Office 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019 via this. 2010, 2013, 2016 were $15.

  •  

    Thank you. Got the Mac version. Very cheap

  •  

    Can someone confirm what happens if I upgrade my machine? Can I install the office on a new machine or do I lose it?

      So long as your company is a member of the Home Use Program you can definitely download and access "it" (not sure if "it" is office 2019 or office 365)

      You used to be able to download an ISO and use a serial number. So even if you moved companies you could still install and use it. That was in the days of office 2016. With office 2019 I'm not sure though
