    I wouldn't go anywhere near it, it looks like they resell oem multiple times as they provide no COA.

    Thanks. I am looking to buy Office 2013 and those looked like good prices. I guess that they are just too good to be true.

    Why not subscribe to Office 365 Personal? With $7 /£6 / €7 a month (1 user license) you get Office 2013 now both to your PC and mobile or tablet and when Office 2016 will be released later this year you will get upgraded for free. Always the latest Office suite. Plus you get 1 TB OneDrive storage and 60 minutes free Skype Calls per month (to mobile phones in 8 countries and landlines in 60+ countries).

    If you need more licenses you will get 5 with Office 365 Home for $10 /£8 /€10 a month. Five users, install to five PCs or Macs plus five tablets or mobiles, each license with 60 monthly Skype Call minutes and 1 TB of OneDrive.

    So much this. When I came back to Windows I went ahead and grabbed Office 365 Home with the 5 licenses. With a copy of the most current Office costing 200 bucks (as I just found on newegg) and I am using 2 licenses right this minute with 3 more available I can give to my family or friends that is 400 bucks. New version of Office every 3-4 years... If I want to stay current it costs me exactly the same amount right now. The other 3 licenses I have available are basically free. I highly suggest the 99 a year up front payment as well, save 20 bucks.

    *EDIT* I think my math is right, either way it's a great deal if you want to keep current.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions. I will definitely look at my options. I have Office 2010 Professional and I love Outlook, so I really need a product that has Outlook. I am thinking about picking up something on ebay called Office 365 University, I like the way that looks.

    Office 365 University is exactly the same than Office 365 Personal but the University edition is for eligible people only. You need to officially prove that you are a full- or part-time student, faculty or staff in any of the accepted universities, colleges or high schools to get Office 365 University activated. It's a subscription for 4 years, paid fully in advance.

    Microsoft Office 365 University, Office for School


    EDIT:

    I was wrong to claim that you have to be a full time student. That part of my post above is now edited to say "full- or part-time student, faculty and staff".

    This from Microsoft:
    Office 365 University is available to full- and part-time enrolled students, faculty or staff of qualified, accredited higher education institutions. Alumni of these institutions aren’t eligible.

    Qualified, accredited higher education institutions include Universities, Polytechnic schools, and Institutes of Technology, as well as other tertiary-level institutions, such as colleges and vocational schools that award academic degrees or professional certifications. Restrictions may vary by country.

    The last time I bought a similar product from ebay I had no problem. My current Office 2010 Professional Academic version I bought real cheap in 2011 on ebay and I activated it real easy. I am sure that I will have no problems with 365 University.

    It is of course your decision, this is a free world. Personally I would never do that, try to save a few bucks by getting an edition I am not entitled to and then in case it does not work as expected, finally pay for the product I should have bought in the first place.
