I also bet you can also talk to your school admin if they can shoulder or share with you the cost.
^I was thinking if tthe same thing initially.
At home, I use my office's 365 (same with my wife).
My sister and my daughter use their student account which is linked to their student account
^ @jbfirefly: those are all blatantly pirated—the prices speak for themselves. May I therefore respectfully request that you delete the above post, as it has the tendency to promote pirated software and therefore violates our forum rules. Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
FYI. If you’re wondering how sure am I that such are pirated—I’m 100% certain. I’m quite familiar with how these work as I’m a lawyer working for a leading IP law firm in China. Microsoft is our client and I happen to be part of the legal team handling Microsoft’s anti-piracy litigations and matters in China (where piracy is rife—and where most of such pirated product keys are generated).
^^ From what I understand based on their website, they are selling legit office365 account but it is associated or connected to an enterprise/corporate account. Maybe that's why, you can't create your own preferred account name.
They're fake, believe me. If those accounts are really connected to an enterprise/corporate account, how come they have enough supply that you can buy hundreds of lifetime Office 365 subscriptions? Even Microsoft doesn't offer a one-time lifetime Office 365 subscription--more so at ₱ 1,880 and for 5 users--indeed a steal in the literal--and not figurative--sense of the word. On a per-user basis, corporate accounts are, in fact, more expensive than those for home or personal use.
Thanks for the clarification, @Qin Zhi.
Ok folks, no more discussions related to productkey.ph and/or piracy.
First of all sorry about that. If you notice I was just asking if any one has tried it and not trying to promote it. I have already deleted the post and just want to clear this because I would look like I was promoting this if people only read your post without my deleted post The reason I did ask was because they seem to be legit based on what I read on their website and second if this were really illegal why hasn’t microsoft closed them down already. Anyway this will be my last post on this.
How about the lifetime subs being sold in lazada for 180.00?
Are they legit?
I bought one and log in to msoffice and everything went smoothly.
Short answer: NO.
Long answer: That is mis-licensing. There's a licensing model specifically used for academe (ie. schools, universities, etc.) wherein they can legitimately purchase O365 licenses from a Microsoft partner only for all their full-time of part-time staff (teachers, administrators, etc.) at regular price. In turn, O365 licenses for ALL students studying in that school are FREE.
Those sellers on Lazada are taking advantage of that or similar licensing scheme. Don't be surprised if your subscription is abruptly terminated once Microsoft gets wind of it.
The best approach is to just buy Office 365 Home from the MS website. It's good for up to 6 members of your family for just $100 per year.
So, it is illegal then?
And lazada is aiding and abetting, is that the right term?
In short, yes.
Moreover, each of those 6 family members can even use Office on up to 5 computers (either PC or Mac) simultaneously. So if you have a family of 6, and each member has 5 computers, that's 30 computers for just ₱3,840/year. For a family of 6, per person that's just ₱640/year, ₱53/mo. or ₱1.75/day--assuming that he/she only has one computer. If, like me, that family member uses Office on 3 computers, that's just a measly ₱0.58/day (and even ₱0.35/day if 5 computers). Frankly, legit MS Office has never been this cheap. I really see no reason why anyone should still pirate it.
Fyi. One place where you can get legit Office 365 for a much cheaper price is also here in China. Microsoft China sells Office 365 Home for only CN¥498 (about ₱3,840 or US$72), so it's like 20% cheaper than in the Ph and 28% cheaper than in the US. You get the same Office, and not just the Chinese version, as you get to pick your preferred language during setup. The only catch is the Microsoft China store is only in Chinese, so purchasing is a bit of a hassle if you can't read Chinese.
That "mislicensing" you mentioned is actually the best case scenario. However, if what you're getting is a product key for Office 365 Home (i.e. with 6 users), these are not just mislicensed academic or business accounts--it's likely there's a more sinister scheme behind it. Here in China, more often than not, the criminals behind these use hacked or stolen credit card info to purchase Windows or Office 365 licenses from the Microsoft Store, and they sell the product keys online. Thus, the reason they work is because these product keys really originated from Microsoft--albeit acquired through fraudulent credit card transactions. Before, these criminal were just selling in Chinese online stores, but now they've branched out to Amazon.com and are even selling in the Ph as well.
Mmm...just buy direct from Microsoft PH website. I know it is expensive but at least you are not contributing to software piracy. If you really can’t afford to pay Microsoft because you can’t give up your weekly Starbucks mochachino frappe whatever, use the free on-line Office. Yes, it is free and all you need is an internet connection and a Microsoft account (free sign-up). It is basic Office and it does not cost you anything. Applicable for devices larger than mobile phones and the small tablets.
reiterating this thread.. where can i buy those authentic ones except online? mine is '15 MBP.
You can go to any outlet of Villman. Check www.villman.com for the locations of their stores.
Mmm....what the bricks n mortar sell is just the software license (big retail box, piece of paper inside with the code). Office still needs to be downloaded and then authenticated. So, better off just ordering it from Microsoft PH and save yourself the hassle of traffic. No one uses optical drives anymore.
Octagon (SM Malls) sells Office.
Any comments on this link? Sounds a lot cheaper. A LOT CHEAPER.
Mm...FAKE. Pirated stuff. It is obvious: two hamburgers = lifetime use with zero monthly with 5 TB storage with OneDrive. Wow.......bargain! Ano yan binebenta ng Microsoft? Hopia?
Use your common sense.
Or try the Home Use Program.. It is a one time installation and not subscription base
