      Excellent offer indeed, I would buy this instantly had I not Office 2019 with support until 2025.

    A month ago I bought this Microsoft Office Professional 2021 for Windows – Lifetime License (85% discount) and got a registration key. Installation didn’t finish successfully, I wasn’t routed to a page wherein I’d need to accept the License Agreement. I found my Office as the product I’ve purchased in Services and subscriptions on my Microsoft website, but it disappeared after a couple of days. Sharewareonsale team which offered this one-time purchase release helped me with the support but M. Office stays not activated and totally useless for me and I lost my money.
    I would like to warn potential buyers to think carefully before making such a purchase.

      Wow, moaning about a different company that isn’t involved here.

      Someone’s being paid to hate.

    I would wager that this license is going to be the Profession PLUS volume license, which is not supposed to be sold retail.

    I just brought Office 2016 Professional (to get off of my now defunct 2010 Pro that is not supported), but received an activation key for Professional PLUS. The key happened to work but I am not happy with receiving the PLUS version.

    I will consider returning the 2016 version if this 2021 Professional version is the real thing.

    Waiting for feedback.

      I’ll help Martin out here.

      It’s via StackCommerce who a generally considered legit. I’ve had a cracking deal on a vpn from them.

      Buy via paypal and if it isn’t what it says it is, request a refund.

        Note that the photo shows “Office Home & Business 2021”. This graphic stays the same whether you click the Mac or Windows version. They use the same list price for the Mac and Windows versions they are supposedly offering, which is wrong.

        If you search for “Microsoft Office Professional 2021” and go to the official Microsoft download, you will see:

        Office Professional 2021
        Microsoft Corporation
        For 1 PC For 1 person

        One-time purchase for 1 PC

        Classic 2021 versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, plus Publisher and Access
        Microsoft support included for first 60 days at no extra cost
        Compatible with Windows 11 and Windows 10*
        Works with Microsoft Teams


        Now how can anyone sell the same version for $49.99???

    This deal has been everywhere for months. It’s been on MacRumours, Engadget, TechSpot, and many more, and all of them disabled the comments section for the article. They all marked the article as ‘sponsored’ or ‘advertisement’, just like Ghacks has here, so maybe that’s why.

    If this was a good deal, there would be articles about it. There aren’t. There are only ads that look like articles.

    I expect the licence to be part of a volume licence, so I haven’t bought one. As far as I can tell, StackCommerce have no reputation at all, apart from a handful of people in comments sections like this one saying that they have a good reputation. All I know about them is they sell very cheap Office licences and they trade under several names – it doesn’t look great at first glance.

    They do accept PayPal, so it might be possible to get your money back if the license does turn out to be a volume license.

    If anyone buys it, please comment with details of what you find out.

    bought a mac license a couple of months ago from same place through ghacks deals which is a portal for stacksocial. Been a stacksocial customer for years, everything I bought has been legit.
    I was able to register Mac Office key to my MSN account for activation and Office mac has worked as intended last couple months including automatic updates. So at least in my opinion, the deal is legit.
