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.

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

  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!
