Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 is currently priced at $619 at Amazon. Microsoft knows that only a few students have the money to buy a software suite for roughly $600 which is why they decided to run a promotion that sells Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 for $59 which is an absolute bargain.
Their decision to run this promotion was probably made easier by the fact that many students prefer to use Open Office. Students from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Italy and Spain with a valid email from their educational institutions are able take advantage of this offer.
The price of $59 is for United States students and it can be that it is different for the other countries. The Ultimate edition of Office 2007 contains all the usual Microsoft applications including the following:
Microsoft Office Word 2007
Microsoft Office Excel 2007
Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007
Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager
Microsoft Office Access 2007
Microsoft Office Publisher 2007
Office OneNote 2007
Office Groove 2007
Microsoft Office InfoPath® 2007.
The official website displays a countdown currently which is running for about 3 additional hours until the promotion starts. You do not have to hurry though because the offer lasts until April 2008. Enough time to grab Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 for this bargain price.
Update: Please note that the offer has expired and is no longer available. We have removed links to it from the article as they were pointing to pages that were no longer existing.
