Microsoft Office 2013 is now available through the Home Use Program [microsofthup.com] for $9.95 if the company you work for participates in this program. If you don't know your program code, just click where it says "Don't Know your Program Code?".
make sure you buy the back up DVD for another $13.99
office 2003 still the best... all they did in subsequent versions just rearrange all the menu into icons and sh1ts you cannot find to do what you always been doing...... put in some new color schemes for the charts and new fonts and they call it new version.... bullsh1t

Yes, you should be able to just burn it onto a DVD.
Everything I bought (don't have 2013) was a .exe, which you can re-download in the future.

My work email failed as did both my son's and daughter's university emails (different schools). I believe my son's school is still loading MS Office onto the kids computers as part of their technology fee, so makes sense not to offer it to the kids there. As for my daughter's school - although a state school, they have an off-shoot .edu address that rarely works with discounts.
I'm going to try an answer a lot of questions here:
1) This is for Office 2013 (PC) or Office 2011 (Mac) 2) If you don't know your program code, click the link stated "Don't know your program code? Click here!" 3) This is for ONE computer, so don't try and load it up on all your systems. UPDATE: It can be installed on 2 computers. 4) Keep the download/EXE file and your license key in a safe place in case you ever have to reinstall. I lost access to the 2010 download I purchased previously, though I still have my key. 5) If you're not eligible, you're not eligible. No ways around it, unless you know someone who is willing to purchase for you.
penbed said: Still using 2007, why pay to upgrade if older version works just fine? Depends on what you want. I upgraded from Office 2007 to 2010 because I really wanted a 64-bit version of excel (32-bit has a 2gb ram limit, which made working with very large excel files excruciatingly slow). From what I've read, Office 2013 will feature full read/write/edit of pdfs which is a huge plus for me and well worth $10.

For most of my family members, Office 97 is working like a charm. It's lightning fast, too.

If it's similar to the 2010 HUP, then the download was a executable file (.exe), I just copied it to a DVD.
Its not similar, the installer downloads office for you. You really need a backup dvd for this one
I didn't qualify but my sister's Kellogs email working. She has 2 computers and wants to know how does this work? You can only dl on one pc? How do you order a copy or can she order 2 one for her and one for me?
