Update 12/4/19: This popular 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.

Update 7/19: This deal is back again. 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.

The Deal

  • Get a Microsoft Office 365 Home subscription plus a $50 Amazon gift card for $99.99
  • Direct link to this deal (our affiliate link)

Quick Thoughts

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. A previous time this deal came around, 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.

[…] Two interesting notes from Nick at Frequentmiler: […]

The renewal worked for me. Got the code, went into account and applied code which extended my subscription by another year plus there was an additional 1 month for using auto renewal (which I had on anyways) so 13 months for $49.99. The gift card for $50 charges separately so that’s a wash ($50 gift card for $50)

can you buy it and activate later? say 1 year later?

My subscription was month to month through iTunes so it won’t automatically extend it. Have to wait until my month expires apparently before I can apply the code. Still a good deal though despite the inconvenience.

I couldn’t get it to apply either Citi or Chase 1 point deal. Still a good price. Thanks.

Showing $100 for home and $150 for Home with the Amazon GC. Makes no sense.

Also worth noting you can still purchase one time fee office licenses from Microsoft.com. Last I checked it was $150 per license. Doesn’t come with onedrive storage though.

Monoprice has the personal version (1 user) for $50, so for those that don’t need multiple users you’re better off not worrying with the gift card.

so you can activate the subscription any time, say a year later, for one year’s service? Is there an expiration date for activation?

Hmmm.. Bought it but cannot add it to an existing Microsoft Subscription
Update: Success! Had to cancel my automaic renewal on my current subscription. And it went through. Good old Microsoft. And thank you FMI.

Just clicked on the link and it’s 149.00 for the 1 year subscription and the $50.00 gift card. Not much of a bargain….
