No matter what you do on a computer, there’s a good chance you’re already somewhat familiar with Microsoft Office. However, you may not realize that there are different licenses for Office with different benefits. We’ve gone ahead and put together some of the best Microsoft Office deals for all needs.
These bundles should have you covered whether you’re working from home or a student studying remotely. Many of these licenses offer Mac and PC options, but we also have a guide for running Office on a Chromebook. Because there are so many different versions of Office, we’ve sorted our deals by price and we’ll clarify what each includes as we go.
Best Microsoft Office Deals
- One license for Office 365 Personal, one year
- Office Home and Student 2019
- One license for Office 365 Business Premium, one year
- Office Home and Business 2019
All of these deals were live at the time of writing, but we’ll keep checking on our Excel spreadsheet for the latest savings.
1. One license for Office 365 Personal
If you only need one license with the basics like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook, then Office 365 Personal is the best bet. Office 365 Personal adds 1TB of cloud storage with a personal vault and advanced security on top of the four core programs.
The license is good for one user for one year, but hopefully, everyone will be back to school and the office by the time the license runs out. Here is the best price we could find, though offers on Office 365 Personal licenses are becoming hard to find:
2. Office Home and Student 2019
If you only need Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, and you want them forever, Office Home and Student 2019 is the best value long-term. Of course, you’re sacrificing access to Outlook and the extra cloud storage, but you can access all three programs whenever you want for as long as you need to.
If you only need the basics, it’s tough to beat unlimited access at one flat rate.
3. One license for Office 365 Business Premium
If you need all of the bells and whistles that Office 365 offers, Business Premium is the only bundle that fits the bill. It includes not only the basics but also Access, Publisher, Exchange, Teams, SharePoint, and more. Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium is designed to handle anything your business needs in one familiar interface.
Whether you’re working from home or building a small business, here’s the best deal we could find:
4. Office Home and Business 2019
Office Home and Busines 2019 is much like Office Home and Student, but with added access to Outlook for home use. It’s best for a small business or someone working at home who needs access to email integration along with the basic Office programs.
The biggest benefit once again is that Office Home and Business 2019 is a flat rate instead of a subscription.
That just about covers the best Microsoft Office deals we can find right now. We can’t promise that Office boosts your productivity, but at least you can save a few bucks. We’ll update the list as we find better savings.
