You should link to some of them via PM :p

My work e-mail sadly didn't work.
Search ebay.ca for 'Microsoft Office 2019 Professional key'.
- Sort Low to High Price Including Shipping
- Screen for 98-99%+ feedback
- Screen for numerous evidence of recent positive sale feedback

You may still be okay meeting the first 2 out of 3 criteria, but 3/3 is recommended.

God bless.

With HUP, each single qualifying work-email entitles you to buy four different products:
- one Office 2019 for Windows - $18.99
- one Office 2019 for Mac - $18.99
- one Office 2016 for Windows - $13
- one Office 2016 for Mac - $13

If you only need one key for your own computer, it is possible to help family members and friends by buying additional keys for them at these subsidized prices.
This is technically against Microsoft's TOS, but they do not care and do not enforce it.
Back in 2014 I bought (through HUP) an extra MSO 2013 key for a friend's MacBook, and he has been using it for the past 5 years without any issue, he even used the same key to reinstall MSO on a new Mac...

It's for personal usage only, however, the license does not expire if you leave your job. It's just that MS says that you shouldn't use it anymore - but they don't enforce it (like they do with Office365 on auniversity account for example).
Right, they won't enforce it, I should have been more clear, the license will become invalid after you quit/get laid off but it won't stop working and they won't chase you.

How are these “fully legitimate keys for only $5 to $15 CAD“ if they are coming from an “unofficial program”?

And if they are “fully legitimate”, why not post the links?
The back story is that in EU zone, the laws say you're allowed to resell CD keys.

Whether you believe these keys on eBay are legit or not is another story. But in EU if you can resell your office license if you wanted to. Most of these sellers are from the UK, who ironically voted to leave the European Union.

Do you know which email addresses don’t need a code?
Considering that the key is emailed to that corporate address, it doesn't really matter - just try your work email and it'll let you know.

Just to be accurate, we don't know what each of them has voted for, individually. We only know it was 52% vs 48%.

Does anyone have a work email that they don't want to use for HUP?

I got the same reply last year, when I tried.
Turns out that my employer did not “sign up” all employees for that perk; only a select group.

Asking for a code also. Although I got one based on the other thread and I just use the license when installing using an offline installer

The old @sympatico.ca email addresses (that Bell used to assign to its home internet subscribers) are still working for HUP...

Program has changed to 30% off of Office 365 now. Seems like a cold deal now. Everyone else see the same thing?!

Yikes, you are right, Microsoft fundamentally changed the HUP program; only subscriptions to Office 365 are offered now. The deal just turned freezing cold...
