If you just want to use a Word program, you could just use LibreOffice, which is free.

Anyone here actually willing to buy something through "GameSpot".

I thought it was a typo, but it seems that nobody can run a website without going into selling stuff.

Still in office sub so not going to cancel that to get the software without updates and the extra 1tb cloud storage.

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.
Gamespot is not the vendor, Definitive Lab is, this company has seem to have started january 2023. This is not a legit offer obviously.

Sure, the vendor is not gamespot has claimed, the vendor is Definitive Lab. A company founded in january 2023.
Good luck getting your money back in a couple of month if your licence is revoked by Microsoft.

This isn't a lifetime license... This is just straight-up buying Microsoft Office 2021.

It doesn't feel to me there's that many benefits in new versions of Office that come out. I think I'm using the one that came out before 2021 (2019?) and word and excel (The two things I use) are still pretty modern and work pretty good. I loathe the concept of paying for a subscription for software. Buying a permanent key seems to be a good way to go. It's not like you need the massive upgrade (which isn't really that big) every 3 or 4 years. You still get security and bug updates.

I used to pirate everything, including office but lately I've just been getting these keys for family and have great success over the years. Another thread suggested joywarp which is the same thing but for $15 usd. I got one and it works well.

These are all against Microsoft's terms of service so they're not really legit. But a tiny bit more legit than running a patching tool lol

And the exact same thing can happen with this.

You are paying for a pirate license either way.

Why? The risk is basically the same. All these key come from the same sort of source.

People are convinced these keys are more 'legitimate' and aren't piracy, even though it's the same 'legitimate' as using an activator.

If it's not Microsoft selling the key, it's not legit.
