Microsoft Office for sale?

    When you buy Microsoft office you are given three licenses to install on three computers.

    Would anyone have a spare license they would like to sell?

    Selling a license is against Section D(7) of the EULA that a customer agrees to when they purchase a license to use the product.

    You're better off licensing a copy directly from Microsoft.

    I contacted Microsoft and they are only selling the most recent version of Office for about €110. I don't have that much money and only need one license.

    Maybe we could work something out

    You can also get office on a monthly subscription

    I think one license is the cheapest option

    If you're looking for someone who bought and paid for 3 licenses to sell you one of their remaining licenses, this could easily get their subscription cancelled for the above reason.

    If you need Office that badly, why not use OpenOffice for free? All file types are compatible with Microsoft's Office, and vice versa, and there's very little MS Office can do that OpenOffice can't.
