I often get asked by friends and family how they can get Microsoft Office after the purchase a new computer.  Getting Microsoft Office might be easier and cheaper than you think!

You might have noticed that the way in which we purchase software has changed. In the old days, we would purchase a version of a software title and install it on our machines.  When the next version came out, we would re-purchase the new version for either the full price or through special upgrade pricing.  Today software is commonly purchased as a subscription billed monthly or annually. You may continue using the software for as long as you keep paying the bills.  This usually means that the software publisher will automatically push updates and new versions to you when they are available.

Tip: Before buying Office for your home, find out if you may already be able to install Office through your existing business plan.
