TL;DR: You can save 89 percent off the list price by purchasing a lifetime license of Microsoft Office Home and Business for Mac 2021 (opens in a new tab) or for PC (opens in a new tab) for £33.41.
Microsoft Office is a crucial component of many people’s digital toolkits when they work from home. Having Word and Excel installed on your computer is a good idea because they are essentially the backbone of the business world.
You could pay a monthly or annual fee to subscribe to Office 365, but most of us already pay for too many subscriptions. Fortunately, Microsoft provides a lifetime license as an additional choice. In other words, you make a single payment to get the entire set of apps for life on a single computer. And you can get that perpetual license for Microsoft Office Professional 2021 right now through July 14 for the lowest price ever: just £33.41.
Access to the Office 2021 versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and OneNote is available with a lifetime license (the Windows package also includes Publisher and Access). Immediately after making a purchase, you’ll receive download links for each platform’s license keys and instructions for installation. For the Mac version, you’ll need at least 4GB of RAM and 10GB of free disk space; for Windows, you’ll only need 1GB of RAM and 4GB of space. Once installed, you can begin creating documents, processing data, exchanging files with your team, organizing video conferences, and other things.
What then is the catch? You will receive free customer service support for life along with security updates every few months if you purchase a lifetime license. However, you won’t have access to all the features that Microsoft provides subscribers each month, and this is important: the license is only good for one computer. It’s still worthwhile for the value even if you’d prefer not to deal with another subscription and only require the essentials.
For £33.41, which is an 89 percent discount and less than when we last featured it, you can purchase the entire Microsoft Office Professional 2021 suite for Mac (opens in a new tab) or PC (opens in a new tab). However, the promotion ends on July 14 so act quickly!
