    3. This is definitely the best way. I've done it about 4 times (and maxed out my limit) but it's legit and easy and worth it instead of downloading a fake version or spending hours trying to figure out how to get it for free.

    4. 1a here. I believe they send you a program code/link to purchase area if you input a valid e-mail. Just click on "Don't know your program code?" and you only have to input your e-mail. And I did this myself and got the full Office 2013 suite on my new laptop.

  3. Use LibreOffice. It does virtually everything that MS Office does, and is free and open source.

    1. +1

      LibreOffice is way better than MS Office in my opinion. Will never go back to paying for basic software.

  5. Some companies have multi license keys for their employees:

    if on coop ask if your company does that
    if you have parents working in those companies ask
    if you know someone with parents working at companies that have these deals ask

    my dad got one through work for like 10$
    (we still haven't hit the cap after 3 laptops and 2 desktops installs)
    so yeah

    the same goes for Wonderland tickets and some movie tickets
    hope this helps
