Free Microsoft Student 2006

There don’t seem to be any catches on this offer. Just fill out an address form and get a free copy of Microsoft Student 2006, Microsoft’s student educational/research bundle. Just another reason I always read SlickDeals’ RSS feed.

The website is a little wonky, so you may have to keep reloading until it loads (and don’t trust that it went through until you get a confirmation number).

  1. We can trust the non-Microsoft website?

  2. I believe so. Interact Services has run promotions for Microsoft before. If you are cautious, I don’t think this offer is going to go away quickly, so you can wait two weeks to see if I get a copy. Alternatively, just ask Microsoft.

  4. Free Microsoft Student 2006

    You can apparently get a free copy of Microsoft Student 2006 at this link, but it’s currently down for me. Maybe I’ll check back later, get a copy and update this entry.

  5. Thanks for the reminder on Used to read them a bit when I was looking for a laptop… before I started using RSS heavily, I think… subscribed.

  6. Offer’s over. I didn’t get one. Not that I had any great use for it, anyway.

  7. Due to the overwhelming interest in Microsoft Student 2006, all available free seeding copies have been distributed.

    This limited time offer is now over.
