MS Office Pro Plus 2013 or Office Mac 2011 for $15 or $30 with Hotmail Email @ MS HUP

This post contains affiliate links. OzBargain might earn commissions when you click through and make purchases. Please see this page for more information.

Grab your copy of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 or Mac office 2011 for $8 - $15 depending on what country you choose($8 for NZ, $10 for USA and $15 for Australia.
This pricing is only for eligible email accounts with company/education emails.

Also works with hotmail accounts but will cost you $30, because you will have to buy both the DVD backup copy and then add the license (as per ozbargainers comments, plz read thread page 4 and after).
From teh comments, MS charges $15 for the Licence first and possibly charges the $15 for the DVD later after its shipped. It is possible then to contact Microsoft and cancel the DVD to save $15 as per here.
Also note that when using a hotmail email, you can only purchase MS Office for Windows. Not sure why they dont allow to buy MS Office Mac when using hotmail

To Use with Hotmail:

Use any @hotmail.com address and then Program code 05383F4FAC.
But you better be quick before they fix the hotmail bug
Please all thank methos for the tip

      I didn't know about it, and I have a .edu address, I already get it included by my school anyway :)

      It is an excellent price! +1 for the deal from me!!

      -1 for your comment.

          hahaha very funny.

        • ill plus one you for stating the obvious

        • I think what I did wrong was I replied to the wrong person…

    • +3

      wow ozdesi…. you are approaching 100 votes mate!
      thats more votes than most deals on their own get, congrats :).
      (oh wait, thats a negative in front)

      • I made it 101, impressive.

        • now -131
          Will that make him the most negatived comment ever ?

        • Nope, a way to go yet. -201 is the record, going to 'Broden'. ;)

        • -1

          we are geting their
          Now -172 votes

        • To be honest, I'd rather Broden keep the record. He was a douchebag whose actions went against the spirit of OzBargain, to the point where the community has adopted his name as a verb for buying up all available stock of a great bargain, and selling it for a profit. Ozdesi, on the other hand, just negged a deal for a dumb reason — something which happens every day. Out of those two, who deserves the record more?

        • +1

          wow usually deals dont get so many votes
          in ozdesi'scase, he got more votes (negative) than what alot of deals never get

          But i agree ,Broden should keep the record , as id imagine that ozbargains foundation is built on that comment lol

        • +1 for using douchebag

        • @Gilbarc,

          You do know he (Broden) was trolling right?

          He was a douchebag whose actions went against the spirit of OzBargain

          His actions were buying one thing that other OzB members didn't manage to get, then trolling with "I bought them all"
          Holy cow some OzB members have way too much sexual tension..

        • And it's there -201 votes, equal.

      • I've made it 188…

        • now 195 … broden's record is going to be broken soon lol

          ozdesi, you going to be famous and known for breaking brodens record of negative votes

    • The 570+ votes and 16,000 clicks contradict this statement

    • -1

      Apparently there isn't a badge on your user profile for -193 votes on your comment.

      Let's aim for 200 votes and see if we get anywhere.

    • Wow, -200. Feel the love!

      • soon we will have a new record

        • -201 One more neg to break the record

        • and we broke the record and made history again
          congrads ozdesi , you own the new record for the most negative voted comment in the history of ozbargain
          Please all join me in congratulating ozdesi.

    Yeah, this is only eliglbe to a select few. My parents purchase these because they work for Newscorp. But this is such a select few people. Also, if your company/workplace is eligible there is most likely posters advertising it, or you will be notified. My family knows from personal experience.

    Good deal, too bad it doesn't work for my work email address and Microsoft is our parent company

  • Doesn't work for UWA student email :(

    • I'm thinking only staff can access this, with students having to go for the University Office package…which although not as cheap as this, is still cheaper than the normal packages.

  • I have a child starting year 8 next year and she would love to have this on her laptop. Any assistance in getting this for her would be much appreciated as I'm totally lost here. Hah, hah, hah!

  • Small tip - if you work for a global company, American prices are cheaper.

      More info:

      If your address works (i.e. the agreement that your employer has with Micro$oft enables you to participate in the Home Use Program) you can buy the software from another region where the pricing is cheaper than the HUP price for Australia. (It's the same digital download irrespective of how you buy it, you just get emailed an activation key).

      For example, when I bought MS Office Pro 2010, it was A$15 here, but it was NZ$10 across the Tasman. With the A$/NZ$ exchange rate that prevailed and the FX fee on my CC, I ended up paying about A$8.60 for it.

      I assume that the same 'trick' will work again, although I've not tried it - yet…

      That's gotta be worth a + vote!

      • -1

        but we cant change the country address? It wont allow us to change it to any other country. It seems that we can leave it as it is and still get the product though but I just dont feel right doing so

        • Changes for me:

          NZ$10 here: http://www.microsofthup.com/hupnz/home.aspx ; or
          GBP8.95 here: http://www.microsofthup.com/hupuk/home.aspx

          Your choice…

        • just one question in the billing its asking for address… what should we fill? will they use it to confirm our CC payment details? Will it work with AU CC?

        • I mean the billing address..

        • When I bought a copy of Office 2010 pro using his method, I entered the biling address for the CC I used to pay for the software. Otherwise there's no way that my CC company would validate the sale. (And I wouldn't want them to validate a sale without providing all the correct info).

          What's to say that you're not in NZ buying this s/w using your (valid) Aussie CC? Most folk have been OS and bought something locally using their Aussie card!

          Nothing illegal with that…

        • (And I wouldn't want them to validate a sale without providing all the correct info)

          So, you managed to put "Australia" as your billing address for the credit card then? Otherwise it wouldn't be a correct address? Please tell us how

        • I did last year when I bought Office 2010 Pro. Like I said above, I haven't tried it on his offer - yet…
