I have stacked these codes before. Buy them on special and save them. I have a spare one atm but do stack digital codes. They add on 12 months to the end of my current sub.

You can certainly use them, but these keys are not intended for resale to the general public and they could be deactivated by MSFT at any time.

Not illegal according to the European court. Don't think it matters what Microsoft says here if the courts decide otherwise.

A quick 2 second goggle search revealed this: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...b-0f0b4bb454f9


Furthermore if it were illegal EBAY would not be allowed to keep the listings under the 'license key 365' / 'oem license key' search terms etc.

That said. You are buying a volume account on Ebay that usually has no expiration date but if the owner of the account decides to close it you will lose access.

Furthermore I am still not 100% sure (only did limited search) if the owner of the volume account is able to access your onedrive to see data. I don't think they can but not 100% sure.

Lastly 50E for a legitimate 365 account is a great price but wanted to emphasize that these 5E license keys are allowed based on the EU courts and they do work but there are potential downsides.


P.S. Looks like the law in the U.S. is different but in the EU it's ok
