Does Microsoft Office Have an Upgrade?

Greetings,

 

I see Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010 for $349. Does Future Shop not sell an upgrade version?

 

Thanks,

Shane.

I don't see an upgrade version, but there is the product key card version here.  It doesn't come with the discs, but will activate the same version.

The product key card says that it is only for versions that come preinstalled on new computers.

I only see that mentioned in the image of the product, which may not be the actual product.  I've had no problem with the PKC being used with a trial version of Office or if needed you can download from here.

The PKC is not available online, so it's not something that I can purchase.

That puts a wrench in that plan for sure. I don't see any other optionsfrom www.futureshop.ca for the Home and Business version unfortunately.

I've never seen one, the PKC are new with the 2010 version and I believe that they're meant to replace the 'upgrade' program they had before.

Re: Does Microsoft Office Have an Upgrade?

As of version 2010, Microsoft has removed the "upgrade" package pricings.  There are only full versions, in which everyone (whether you have previously purchased Office or not) pays the same price.

 

You can save a few bucks by buying the key card, but IMO it's not the best deal - particularly when it comes to Home and Student.  The retail package allows 3 installs, but the key card allows only 1, and the difference in pricing is minimal.

Re: Does Microsoft Office Have an Upgrade?

Just clicked on your link which led me to "Office Web Apps".  Has anyone tried this variation of Office?
