Is this legit? Seems too good to be true. Says lifetime license, but then license key only guaranteed for one year…

Looking up topfastkeys (seller on stack social), this pops up:

Some people didn’t receive their keys. Others saying this is grey market. Not for me.

What’s the RFD way of getting office these days? Any discounts? Any group deals?

Pretty disappointed that "lifetime" is thrown onto many software license offerings which has nothing to do with "lifetime".

Like this one, "lifetime" access to Office 2021 = standard license of Office 2021. To use the next major version upgrade, you have to pay.

Not saying it's right, but I assume they are using the term 'lifetime' just to indicate this is a one-time purchase and you get to use the software 'forever', as opposed to the common one-year subscription plan or similar (i.e. Microsoft 365) which expires after a defined period of time. I'd be incredibly suspicious of any place selling an actual 'lifetime' MS Office license (i.e. yearly plan) for a fixed low one-time cost like this.

In any case, not a deal because you can definitely get this for less than $50 CAD from other sellers online (not any more legit just because it's sold through Stacksocial)...

If you work for a large "deskjob" company or a government agency check to see if their enterprise microsoft agreement includes reduced-price licenses for employees.
Government jobs and some big corporate account lets employee buy a personal one-off license for dirt-cheap.

Yeah this is either intentionally misleading or terribly phrased (the former I bet). The product (Office Professional Plus 2021) has always been a one-time purchase and doesn't have a subscription like Microsoft 365. Either they are trying to use the word "lifetime" to dupe people into thinking it's a lifetime subscription to 365 (getting regular updates perpetually), or it's to make it sound more lucrative than it really is.
RFD: Pick any two.

I think you are speaking of the Home Use Program: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/home-us ... n-CA&rtc=1

A good deal for anyone who is eligible and need to use Office at home regularly. Just to be clear, it's not purchased from your employer - I believe you directly purchase it from Microsoft or a dealer, I forgot which.

True you purchase from Microsoft directly but you need your employer's ID number to.finalize the purchase.

It's crazy how many employer.don't inform their employees about this.program's existance

Sure, the same way Chromebooks are taking over the corporate office.

Yeah sadly the HUP is limited to Microsoft 365 subscriptions now. I wanna say that changed either shortly before or just after Office 2021 RTMed.

In addition to people who have the Home use program to buy a discount license...
Another free alternative - Most employers who have Office 365, you can install it on 5 personal devices and use the office software (word, excel, ppt etc) for free, for personal use, for as long as you work at that employer. You just log in once to activate the device after installing O365 on personal device.
I've been doing this for years.

Sounds completely legit LOL

I’m no expert here but if you’re going down this road, wouldn’t Aliexpress just be cheaper?

Pro Plus is always a legit key, likely obtained from grey market. This is similar to those sold at eBay or keys sites.

Once it is activated, it will work fine until you need to reactivate it, later activation might need to call in.
