Any deal on one time purchase of Office 365 or 2019 or 2016?

I prefer a one time install rather than the subscription model.
Has anyone seen any deal to buy o 365 2016 or 2019?

If you work at an office that provides you with office 365 software on your PC, you can usually use the same licence on 4 other personal PCs. You just need to go to File, Account in an office product and enter your account information using the change license button. So you don't need to pay anything!

Those 4 bucks deals on ebay are crap. Already lost money
Looks like it's the same deal as they $4 except they charge $24. The eBay ones are legit keys, just they're not suppose to sell a vlk to multiple retail. I'd do that with the $3 off $3.01 coupons.

yeah. problem with ebay users is that they cancel their subscription after x number of keys have been sold leaving users high and dry. I dont know if office becomes disabled for such users. So far I am just seeing a notification

They’re all the same. Whether you pay $5, $10, $20, or $50 - a key is a key.

I used AliExpress. It was sketchy but it worked.

You have to make sure its 2016/2019 (permanent) and NOT 365 (subscription). I've been using one for a couple of years and still works (ebay seller long gone), maybe MS just don't bother with it because 2016 is old anyway, but its a sample size of one so who knows if its just luck. Alternatively, have you looked into free options like Libreoffice?
