Microsoft Office Lifetime license for $30

Deal Link:
Price:
30
Savings:
91%
Expiry:
January 25, 2023
Retailer:
GameSpot
Here’s a look at the software included with Microsoft Office Pro 2021 for Windows:

Microsoft Office Word
Microsoft Office Excel
Microsoft Office PowerPoint
Microsoft Office Outlook
Microsoft Office Teams
Microsoft Office OneNote
Microsoft Office Publisher
Microsoft Office Access
Skype for Business
The Mac version comes with everything listed above except for Publisher, Access, and Skype for Business. You also only get the "basic" version of Teams with the Mac license. Considering that most users are buying Microsoft Office for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, these concessions probably aren't dealbreakers.

It's worth noting that purchasing Microsoft Office 2021 means that you won't receive regular software updates that are offered to Microsoft 365 subscribers. Again, this likely isn't a huge deal for most people, as $30 is a bargain for even just Microsoft Word--and the 2021 version of Office is still excellent today.

Be sure to redeem your license within 30 days of purchase or return an unredeemed code for store credit. This sale is expected to end soon, so swing by and check out the impressive savings while you can.

Yes it can happen. But the risk with Chinese websites like AliExpress is more.

Because it’s the same thing, just through stack (GameStop mentions deal is through stackcommerce, which is the rebrand of stacksocial) and those deals pop up every month on this forum. Don’t be swayed by the “GameStop” source just because some lazy content writers don’t care.

Most of this forum will see “GameStop” and think “hey it’s legit”. Far from truth.

I can't believe that Game Spot wrote an article about purchasing MS Office from a seller that is offering licenses that are not authorized to be sold at least not in this manner. MS could and has invalidated keys purchased from these type of sellers.

Need to be careful with cheap keys as the above is common.
Video is for Windows but the same applies to Office Keys

Yes, it could happen. These are legitimate keys but they violate the licensing agreement, so Microsoft could, at any time, revoke the licensing without notice.

If you want an actual, legitimate fully legal way to use Microsoft Office, use Office 365.

There really should be a RFD FAQ about this.

Is it possible to buy a cheap license that doesn't violate the licensing agreement? Yes, but you're not likely to find them available on a large scale.
Kaboom! Kaboom! KABOOM!

Why do people bother with this when you can just use an activator (just make sure to get it from a non sketchy source)
