Microsoft Office remains the king of office productivity, and here's one way to get most of the suite's benefits without paying an Office 365 annual subscription.
Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2019 is currently available at an exceptional deal price of $29. The package gets you a lifetime license for one Windows PC or Mac, suitable for both home and work use, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access – a comprehensive suite for your professional needs.
In recent months, we have also promoted a deal for Office 2021, which is the most recent version of the suite. That's still available for $69, but because that's not as affordable, we have brought you the option of Office 2019 Pro Plus, noting the key differences between the 2019 and 2021 version:
- For all the essential functionality and file compatibility of Word, Excel, and so forth, both suites are almost the same
- In Office 2019, real-time co-authoring is available in Word, but not in Excel or PowerPoint
- Excel 2021 adds new functions, including XLOOKUP and XMATCH
- PowerPoint 2021 has improved recording capabilities for slideshows
- Office 2019 does not include Microsoft Teams integration (but that's available as a free download anyway)
- Microsoft released Office 2021 alongside Windows 11, so the latest Office received a visual update to match the most recent Windows version
It's happened to all of us... You are setting up a new PC for friends or family and the first thing they ask for is Office. Using Google Docs inside a browser is a pretty good alternative for many, as are free productivity suites like LibreOffice and FreeOffice, but nothing beats real Office.
The deal gets you instant delivery of your license key and download, making it super convenient and ensuring immediate access to the software.
Here's a summary of our current Microsoft software deals:
- Microsoft Office 2019 Pro Plus available for $29
- Microsoft Office 2021 Pro available for $69
- Windows 11 Pro and Windows 10 Pro available for $39
