Got some writing to do? Working on your advanced spreadsheet skills? Time to invest in Microsoft 365! Since Microsoft converted the Office suite to a subscription service, it has gotten noticeably more expensive to stay invested in. We know you love the programs but hate spending money, so we’re collecting all the best places you can find it at its lowest prices. There are several options available and several ways to save, and we’ll definitely update this post with any new ones we find. Not sure whether it’s worth investing in? We’ve considered it a bargain for a long time now, and the beauty of the subscription service is it means Microsoft is constantly updating the programs with new security features, time-management features, and more.
Best Microsoft 365 Personal Deal $58.99
The Personal version is the lowest tier in the Microsoft 365 lineup. It is limited in that you can only use it for one person, but it’s still a 12-month subscription with access to all the big programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive, OneNote, and Outlook. Use it wherever you want, too, including on PC or Mac, and iOS or Android mobile devices. If you aren’t sure you want to make a long-term commitment, this is the way to go because you can always upgrade to Home later if you want.

Best Microsoft 365 Family Deal $10 off + 3 months free
Much like Personal, you get access to all the major programs, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote. You’ll get 1TB of storage through Microsoft OneDrive, regular updates to all the mentioned programs as long as your subscription is live, and more. You can use Microsoft 365 on your PC, your Mac, your iOS or Android phone, tablets, and a bunch of other places. The difference from Personal is Family can be used by up to six people.

Microsoft 365 Family
The normal price for one year of Family is $99.99 through Microsoft, and you’ll find it going for that price at most retailers like Newegg and Best Buy. Right now the best way to save is this deal on Costco where you can get 15 months of the service for $89.99. That’s three extra months and $10 off the regular price.

Best Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019 Deal $124.99
Too many subscriptions in your life? Not a fan of mysteriously losing that money every year? I don’t blame you. Microsoft doesn’t either. That’s why the Home and Student 2019 version exists. It’s a one-time purchase that gives you access to the 2019 versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. This purchase works on one device, either a PC or a Mac. You’ll also get 60 days of Microsoft support for free. This is the way buying Office used to be, but remember that you’ll have to pay again if you want updates to your programs.

How to get the Best Microsoft 365 Deals
Obviously, Amazon is the single best place to save right now. No one more consistently beats Microsoft’s prices for the suite. Another option is to keep a lookout for bundle deals, which we have seen quite often. We have seen Amazon offer a deal that combined Microsoft 365 Family and a $50 gift card for $100 total, which basically made the $50 gift card a free bonus. Newegg once bundled an Xbox Live Gold subscription with Microsoft 365 Personal for $80, although we haven’t seen that combo in a while now.
Microsoft regularly discounts Microsoft 365 through the purchase of a PC, Mac, or even iPad at some retailers. At Best Buy right now, you can get $20 off with a qualifying device. Amazon has a similar deal that’s not quite as widely available, but you can see it at the top of some product pages.
If you are a student or a teacher, Microsoft has a program that gives Microsoft 365 out for free. Check out this page and use your official school email to see if you qualify.

Sometimes the best accessories are also the cheapest ones. Having a great PC experience doesn’t just hinge on spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on the most expensive equipment there is. Sometimes, spending just $30 or less is more than enough, and we love affordable accessories. Here are our top picks.
