Microsoft's The Ultimate Steal Save You Big


Microsoft offers the Home and Student version of its Office suite. Listing for $150USD (Compare Prices), it is an attractive alternative to pricier versions of Microsoft Office.

However, the Home and Student version offers fewer programs than other Office versions. It includes Word, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Excel. Many will lament the absence of the Outlook email client and the Access database.

Fortunately, Microsoft also offers a better deal for students. The Ultimate Steal program offers a fuller suite of Office programs (Office 2007 Ultimate) at an unbelievably low price.

The Ultimate version of Office 2007 includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Groove, Publisher, Access, and InfoPath. The student price is an astounding $60USD! (Compare Prices on retail versions of Office Ultimate)

Of course, you must prove your eligibility for The Ultimate Steal. You must be a current student with a valid .edu email address. Further, it is only available to students of approved colleges. The Ultimate Steal site will help you determine your eligibility.
