It is not legit, and the seller is not Microsoft. The product is made by Microsoft but this is not sold by Microsoft. The title specifically hide the word "Plus" This is Microsoft Office Pro PLUS. The pro plus is not for retail sale. It is volume licensing. Anyway just read old post, you will have all the info you need.

And if I want a key, I can always get it fraction of this 49.99USD price. It is just the same thing.

Quickly skimmed through dozens of posts spanning multiple threads on various platforms, not a single solid illegitimacy confirmation pertaining to this specific deal.

From the reddit thread:

Once redeemed no mention of volume licensing or MSDN in the order line item, and the purchase seems to be linked to the user MS account (not that anyone confirmed but that might mean it's reinstallable despite being a single PC license).

Called Microsoft and was told I had to go in to my office account and remove the current system from activation and try again. I did, and it activated without issue. I inquired about the license and whether it was a legal license. It is and it's part of an MS program to flood the market with Office 2021 to get as many office users as possible to upgrade from 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016. Supporting the older version is costing them a mint. The license is a VL, but it's MS' own VL. It literally has billions of activations.

Do you know if the license gets associated to your microsoft account or to a specific machine?
(Meaning, if I change my device, can I take it to the next one?)

So if you have it installed all into one laptop and you get a new computer, would you be able to delete the programs on your old laptop and transfer it to your new computer?

The seller is Microsoft, can’t verify that though but I haven’t had any issues with Stacksocial in the past. Bought 2 or 3 “deals” from there and never had any issues.

Same questions as those above - seems almost too good to be true for a lifetime subscription

This is what the term says. One-time purchase installed on 1 Windows PC for use at home or work.
So Will not be linked to your microsoft account.

Good price for MS Office Pro!

FYI: if you only need a basic document, spreadsheet, database, or drawing program, a lot of the times you can get away with using the free, open-source alternative, LibreOffice (https://www.libreoffice.org/discover/libreoffice/). It supports opening and editing MS Office files. The Draw app can even be used to edit PDFs.

`One-time purchase installed on 1 Windows PC for use at home or work`

This should answer everyone's question.

Seems like it's only for 1 installation and if you get a new PC you have to pay again.

I feel from the looks of it this is a one time use license. Meaning, it's tied to the PC you install it on. Same as a Windows license where its tied to the machine itself. Now, you can do a fresh install of the OS on the same machine but you'd need to contact Microsoft to get them to release your previous activation so you can reactivate the license on the same machine. That should be what's in the T&C. I might be wrong, but normally that's how it is.

- Redemption deadline: redeem your code within 30 days of purchase

I can't buy it now and use it later? Still using Windows 7 and may upgrade later this year.

Yeah just use Libreoffice at home. Most work places provide MS office for their own computers anyway.

always remember, the term "lifetime" is based on who's or what's lifetime. in this case, it's the same pc's lifetime.

you most likely can. they just say you have to "redeem" or in a sense "get" the license from the portal. once you have it, you can use it anytime you want. kinda like old school way of buying software/games in cds. you have the game and license key, it's up to you when you want to install it.

but safer to verify the T&C. that's just based on my understanding.
