    Questions about Win 10 License


    I got 2 questions about Win 10 license....

    1) Is it cheaper to buy a Win 10 product key now or after July 29th?

    2) I'm not able to find a Win 10 retail version. Does anyone know where to find one?

    1. No, same prices for now
    2. Amazon ??? All reputable computer stores should have them on USB or DVD. They are all Retail versions.

    Or direct from MS Store.

    If you check allkeyshop, you can find 10 Pro OEM licence starting at $20, but the legality is questionable to say at least.
    But I have got dozens of keys from those eshops, not just Windows licences, keys for steam games as well and all is fine.

    Irrespective, it's not good practice to promote non-accredited re-sellers... eventually an illegal MSDN key will be blocked - even though some may think take a chance on a cheapo...

    EDIT: Got side-tracked... but I'll wait 'tll after 29 Jul... there may be upgrade keys at reduced prices on offer...

    Theres an ebay seller who's selling a win 7 key for $20. He says he's so confident its legit that he's willing to refund me if it turns out to not work. What do you think?

    Is there a way to verify a key is valid by calling Microsoft or maybe entering the key on Miicrosoft's website?

    I have a bridge from Brooklyn for sale if you are interested?

    Of course it is a scam of some sort.

    Re. checking key, you can check it with showkeyplus, but I assume you would have to pay first?

    He sells the product key to 10 different people. 9 people activate their Windows 7 and get free upgrades to Windows 10 before it hits Microsoft's limit for activation. The 10th person gets the product key blocked message and the seller refunds the money. The seller has just made $180 illegal profit.
