Microsoft Office discount for military

A friend sent this tidbit to me this morning...

The Office 2007 Military Appreciation Edition (MAE) is down to US$49.99 –from $79.95.

That’s a fantastic deal for what is really a three installation licence for Office 2007 Standard (Word 2007, Excel 2007, Powerpoint 2007 and Outlook 2007). Office 2007 Standard is officially priced at $349 for a standard license.

Some stock of the MAE in ‘PX’ stores might have the higher price, however ordering from AAFES will get you the lower price. Recent reports from Office Watch readers suggest that delivery is quite prompt.

The $49.95 price will last until 30 June 2009.

A reminder that the MAE applies not just to current US military personnel but also retired personnel and their dependents.

For more details on the Military Appreciation Edition see our earlier coverage – How to get the Military Appreciation Edition and Office 2007 Military Appreciation Edition.

My Photo

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
