    Office 365 - 79,99$ per for 5 users?


    Hi there,

    My office 365 personal is expiring soon. I compared prices and notice that it cost 59.99$ for one person, or 79.99% for 5 users (15$ per person).

    Is there any discount for one person? It just looks too expensive when I compare to 5 persons

    Not that I can see & yes it is expensive for 1 person compared to a 5 user license, I'd buy Office if it was 20 cheaper for 1 user.

    It is really the converse ie 5 user licence is a bargain especially if you factor in each user gets 1TB onedrive storage space.


    Be glad you are being charged in $ not - we pay much more in UK - $60 would be a greate price for us.

    Where are you getting Office 365 Home for $79.99 for a year. The price is $9.99 per month, or $99.99 per year. The personal edition is $6.99 a month or $69.99 per year.

    It was $79.99, now it shows again $99 :/ But still, 20$ per user is much cheaper then 69$

    It is, but like in my case, I have a copy on my sons desktop, my desktop and my mac laptop. But I cannot use 3 of them at once. My son isn't using it.

    How do you mean "cannot use 3 of them at once"? What happens when you do?

    If you are using office that allows 5 users, and if you share office with them over their own mail addresses then it should not have any problem.
    If all of them are registered office with same mail address then it could have problem

    Check on every computer whether they are registered with same mail address or different.

    Also you can use microsoft online support and they can help you to solve your problem

    I just mean I am one person. I am only using office on any one computer at a time. So, its mathematically $20 per user if you divide $100 by 5 installs.

    Yes, I can launch and use them all simultaneously if I wanted to.

    Ah I understand now. Then it is more like 5 devices then 5 users like you said, I forgot how it works.
