To qualify you must sign in using a university, college, educational institute. corporate or company email.  I tried my Queen’s University email and it worked for me. Your alumni university email should work too. If you work for a corporation your email should also work. Worst case scenario, just ask a family member who does have a qualifying email address if you can use there’s.

    Does this expire after a year?

  2. Boo Radley says:

    I looked around and can’t find anywhere where it says it expires after a year.

    Microsoft’s barely-english explanation about the company entitlement:

    “The Home Use Program is a Software Assurance benefit available to Microsoft volume licensing customers with active Software Assurance coverage on their Office applications. Employees who use the covered licenses at work are eligible to purchase these Office applications for use on a home PC during the term of their employment. This temporary license expires with the employers Software Assurance coverage, or upon termination of employment with the covered customer.”

    Based on this, I’d say if you intend to tie this to a company email, you’ll need to know their licensing status with Microsoft, and expect the application to expire if you leave the company (or that status changes).

    What you state above is not how it works.. you might as well post a link to a torrent. Just because you use a friends email and pay $11 doesn’t make your installation of this software ‘official’.

    From the terms of the offer:
    “The Home Use Program is a Software Assurance benefit available to Microsoft volume licensing customers with active Software Assurance coverage on their Office applications. Employees who use the covered licenses at work are eligible to purchase these Office applications for use on a home PC during the term of their employment. This temporary license expires with the employers Software Assurance coverage, or upon termination of employment with the covered customer.”

    I’ve tried doing it with 2 different work emails and it is asking for a program code. Help?

  6. Julie says:

    I’ve tried doing it with my university email and it doesn’t work.

    You would need to work for a company that has a work at home rights agreement with Microsoft. If you work for a large company, you might want to contact your IT department to get information on whether this is available to you. Our school division just announced that staff is able to get Microsoft office at home free on up to 5 PCs. Until now, it cost $11, and we could only install on one PC. Worth checking into with your workplace or university.

    As Minou notes… this program is only for organizations that are under a special
    license agreement with Microsoft. If so, and if the organization allows it, will there be a “program code” available for you to use and sign-up online. Many large companies do offer this (eg. the banks, insurance companies for their employees). Some gov’t organizations are eligible but prohibited due to over zealous conflict-of-interest rules.

    If your company offers it, most you will have already heard of it. And, likely there will be info on your corporate intranet.

    Hi Joy,

    You just SKIP the program code step and it works. They actually send you a download link with 3 downloads/license , so you can download it on 3 different computers. I have 2 laptops and 1 desktop , so I downloaded on all 3 for only $ 11 🙂

    Its a FULL licensed version and it DOES NOT expire after a year. Its NOT a trial version or limited edition etc. Ones its on your HARD drive thats it :)..you do nothing after that.

    I downloaded it a few months back.
