$99.99 at Noel Leeming is much less than the sticker price of $165. But only until Tuesday 20/11/18.

Yes, I've had a few years stacked up when I got a cheap deal.

 

Remember to get the extra month (12 + 1) for each subscription as per instructions below. You should turn auto renew off after you've loaded the subscriptions if you don't want Microsoft to sell you the 4th year subscription at the RRP (Recommended Retail Price).

No longer works for me!

 

This had worked for the last seven years. I started in March and am now at October so I've had seven free months. But this no longer appears to work as I didn't get prompted to turn on recurring billing when I added the new product key earlier today. My existing sub expires October 2019 and this additional sub expires in October 2020. So I didn't receive a free month.

So I ordered one of these and it was set for pick up from the local store for last week. Since it hadn't arrived I had a chat with NL and was told that there was a holdup with the supplier and that there was no ETA for when I would get the product. Has anyone actually managed to get the box/code yet?

I'm in the same boat. Expired Office 365 and still waiting...

 

NL haven't been able to help. Harvey Norman only have stock in Dunedin so it looks like it is the supplier that has been caught short....

 

Pretty poor form from someone to run out of codes...





My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

I got the electronic version with the subscription code printed out on the receipt. So I had no wait on physical stock but there was a short wait in-store because a system was down.

Buy online and use the promo code 'GY6QNL2' for an extra $10 off if spending over $50.

 

Key received by email in minutes, it's the 6 user version and stacked on my older 5 user version without any problems.

How are individual users managed? Could I add other family members simply using their email addrsss or is it more convoluted than that?

It's as simple as that. See the screenshot of my Microsoft Account | Services & Subscriptions | Office 365 | Sharing.

 

You can send them an invite in an email message. You can cancel the invite if you want to resend to a different email address or if they no longer want the invite.

Thanks. That's cheap enough that I figure it's time to buy a license for my parents.

 

As much as we like the idea of LibreOffice, it isn't the best when people are sending them Word documents with crazy formatting.
