Office 2010 free upgrade

I know, Microsoft hasn’t released yet the Office 2010 suite, but it will be available in October 2010. They’ve partnered with Amazon to offer a free upgrade deal, which is quite simple: you buy one of the qualifying Office 2007 products, and you receive a free upgrade of the same product once Office 2010 is available. Details:

  • Buy a qualifying Office 2007 product between March 5 and September 30, 2010 from this page:Microsoft Office 2010 promo.
  • Install and activate your Office 2007 no later than September 30, 2010 (in order to qualify for the free upgrade you have to activate before this date, because they intend to release Office 2010 early October).
  • Once the corresponding Office 2010 is available, visit www.office.com/techg by October 31, 2010 to download your free upgrade (you’ll also have the option to buy a DVD for a fee if you want it mailed to you). A list of steps to follow will be available, but the main thing is to have your Office 2007 key already activated.
  • You’ll need to download the Office 2010 product and the key for it will be received soon after.
