Office Ultimate 2007: Just $60! (for students)

Starting in 59 minutes, 35 seconds, Microsoft will begin offering Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 for students for the amazing price of just sixty dollars. This special offer for students only represents a $620 discount off the retail price of $680, a 91% savings.

You get:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • Oulook (with Business Contact Manager)
  • Accounting Express
  • Publisher
  • Access
  • Infopath
  • Groove
  • OneNote
  • And some boring business features.

Amazingly, the entire suite will cost less than any single part costs on its own. For example, if you want OneNote (the amazing note-taking application every student should have), you can buy it alone for $80 or get it as part of Ultimate for $60. The promotion starts in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. today, followed by France, Italy and Spain on September 20.

Ultimate is the premier edition of Office 2007, coming with every single feature Office offers (except Communicator). This deal, which they are calling the Ultimate Steal, makes it instantly affordable for any student. The deal lasts through April 30, 2008, so you can take a little time, but go on and get it. You do not want to miss the chance to get this much Office for this low a price.

  1. I’d advise students to go to their college book/computer store first. I’m looking at the same thing for $29.

  3. So how do you apply for it to claim it… being a student at uni is expensive.

  4. NIU: $109 (Office Enterprise)

    U of Illinois: $80 (Enterprise)

    City University of NY: $82 (Office Professional Plus)
    $66 (Office Standard, no OneNote or Access)
    $95 (Enterprise)

    Yale: $88 (does not say which edition)

    Syracuse: $100 (Pro Plus)

    At most schools I looked at, $60 is cheaper, plus you’re getting a better version.

  6. My Uni charges £100 something with less features

    Comment by Liam Daly | September 12, 2007

  7. Yep, I bought the same thing at my school for $29. But I applaud any discount effort.

  8. What an amazing generous offer!

    My only question…why Ultimate? Students don’t need Business Contact Manager, Accounting Express, Groove, or any of those other “boring business features”. They could have just done this promotion for the Professional version and people would have been just as happy. Either way, it’s an excellent deal!

  11. Damn…I just ordered mine from JourneyEd (Office Professional Plus) for $89…

  12. From an ignorant Dad – My 12 yr old needs powerpoint for school, does he qualify under this deal? or is it just college age?

    Comment by Steve | September 13, 2007

  13. Student Math
    $60 = 240 * 25 cent draft
    $60 = 60 * $1 hi-balls
    $60 = 10 * $6 pitchers

    Save your money! Download Open Office!

  14. “Promotion Eligibility:

    2.Individual must be a student at a U.S. educational institution and must be actively enrolled in at least 0.5 course credit and be able to provide proof of enrollment upon request.”
    Only for U.S. Europa not supported. Harm for European students, but $60 looking very nice pay.

  17. Nathan Weinberg, the $29 price is not available at the website you posted or at any of the links on that page.

    Comment by Samantha | October 29, 2007

  18. Samantha, I didn’t list any $29 deal, I never even said the words “$29″. Chris did, and he didn’t link to anything. I linked to sites like the ones Chris was talking about, and all of them cost more, though not necessarilly a lot more, than $29.

  19. does this apply for student in Canada??? I know it states that it is offered in Canada but when I actually read the eligibility site it clearly states U.S. students only????
