Update: This deal is back again. We’ve seen it a couple of times previously. As noted below, you can buy this deal and redeem the code to extend your Office 365 subscription by a year. We’ve added this to our running list of Prime Day deals.
Amazon is offering a Microsoft Office 365 Home subscription (6-user subscription) for $99 and get a $50 Amazon gift card. While $99 is the regular price for Office 365, the $50 gift card makes this a solid deal for anyone who normally pays for a subscription. Note that the last time this deal came around, it sold out pretty quickly and later came in and out of stock, so if you don’t see it available the first time it might be worth checking back.

We’ve seen Office 365 go on sale for $60 now and then and even $55 at one point, but those sales don’t come around all that often. Getting the $50 Amazon gift card bundled makes this an excellent deal for those who value the gift card close to its cash value. Of course, I wouldn’t recommend buying this if you wouldn’t ordinarily pay for this — and with the utility of Google Docs, I imagine most casual users may no longer have a need for an annual paid Office subscription. However, for those of us who need Office for one reason or another, this is a good deal on the subscription. The last time this deal came around in December, a reader confirmed that buying this worked to extend an existing subscription — you just have to go into your Amazon Digital Subscriptions and Licenses and get the key.
Keep in mind that you will not be able to pay with an Amazon gift card since an Amazon gift card is included in the deal.
