Back-to-school deal: Microsoft Office Ultimate for $60


OfficeultimatesaleGot yourself a .edu e-mail address here in the United States? Good because that qualifies you for a heck of deal on Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007. You get the whole kit and caboodle for $59.95, which includes:

  • Access 2007
  • Accounting Express 2008
  • Excel 2007
  • Groove 2007
  • InfoPath 2007
  • OneNote 2007
  • Outlook 2007
  • PowerPoint 2007
  • Publisher 2007
  • Word 2007

Normally, this time of year we highlight the Home & Student Edition of Office 2007, which is a great deal as well. For $99 MSRP, you get three licenses but it only includes the applications I’ve highlighted in the list above. That means if you want to get your Groove on, Publish some non-Word docs or get a good Outlook on your e-mail in a single user setting, the educational deal at $59.95 might be the way to go. I know the Mac faithful will bring up the Apple deals for students and educators, but really: what student wants to buy a discounted Mac and get a free iPod Touch? Seriously? ;)



sorry to rain on your parade, but there are more qualifications than having a .edu email. You must also meet CURRENT enrollment requirements. Many people have their old email address, but that is not enough. Will they verify your enrollment? Maybe not. But that doesn’t make it right or proper to ignore this requirement. Please clarify the requirements or it appears as though you could be inadvertently enouraging people to misrepresent themselves for a “steal.” when bad people abuse good programs, we all lose.


@Scott_H: looks like they’re going into fire-sale mode or something; proposed price for Vista Ultimate will be $64.95… the catch is that it’s an upgrade version. However, you can always pull that trick of using Vista to upgrade itself…


Thanks Kevin! I just registered a copy AND downloading right now : ) My school will start next week. What a good timing…


I believe starting Sept. 8, you’ll also be able to get Vista Ultimate for $69 if you have a .edu email address (32-bit only, I think).
