If you use Office 365, then you really shouldn’t be paying full price for it. Deals pop up all of the time, often on Amazon, and today’s deal is a solid one. Amazon.com is offering a free $50 gift card with the purchase of a year of Office 365 Home (spotted by Rich Hay). That means it’s a 50% discount on the $99.99 product, if you count a gift card as a discount.
There’s a bit of a catch though, as your Office 365 billing will now be handled by Amazon. The purchase comes with auto-renew, so Amazon is presumably banking on the idea that it’s not just selling you a year of Office 365; it’s selling you Office 365 for the foreseeable future. The good news is that you can turn off auto-renew easily enough in your Amazon settings, and you can keep an eye out for next year’s great deal.
Office 365 Home comes with Office licenses for up to six users, and each of those users gets a terabyte of OneDrive cloud storage. It’s really one of those deals where it’s hard to go wrong.
