    Never stop working

    It's Excel. It's Word. It's what you expect and need if you are doing basic office work on your computer. I've started using OneNote, which I never even realized existed, and it's pretty good, too. I'm a traditionalist and like my files orderly and accessible on my HD, BUT (oh, the irony) my favorite thing about this product is the ENORMOUS space available with their OneDrive cloud storage. It makes files/videos/pics accessible over all my devices with great convenience. It may be good enough for me to embrace modern technology to its fullest, FINALLY. I can work on projects wherever I may happen to be seamlessly. I'm not a huge fan of the subscription model, but ...

    Product Key can't be found in MS's database

    I just spent two hours with MS Office customer chat and phone support. Chat support told me that maybe a small server is down and that's why my product key is not found in their database. Phone support should have called me after 13 mins of waiting time but they did about an hour after. Anyway, this guys is now telling me that I need to contact Bestbuy to send my information to MS to activate my product. Chat support said that they would give me a few months of subscription on Office 365 Home without solving my initial problem...

    Not only was I told incorrect return info by a store associate but when I went to return it after 13 days they said it was part of a nundle thus my total would go up. after that fiasco with them they said to come back and talk to another mgr. I called customer service who caalled the store and we had a 3 way with the store mgr. They asked me to return take it back tonight, I went back Tonight and they cant get thr system to compensate me because its the 17th day. I have spent 2 hours trying to return a product I tried to return w.in 15 dats originally. I have never in my life had such a bad experience and im very dissatisfied with Best Buy

    Besides having the latest versions of the Office suite, direct connections into OneDrive, and automatic upgrades, this product allows me to upgrade five computers, enough for all of my home machines. One aspect I didn't fully appreciate when making this purchase it that it comes with 1TB of OneDrive storage for the year of the subscription. AND, that's 1TB per computer...or 5TB total. I've been transitioning toward using the cloud for storage/backup, and this turns out to be the most cost-effective access to that much storage volume that I've found. Plus, of course, there's the full integration of OneDrive access with W10 and Office.

    I wish I would have purchased the disc and not downloading on the web. Had to have Geek Squad help me install it, fix my problems and transfer my outlook files. In fact I would have been better to keep my 2010 Office than this one, but I was willing to try. I have been working with this new software for the past month now, and the bugs have corrected. The only problem is I use U-Verse with WiFi and my Outlook keeps informing me of meter charges, so it is working offline. There is no extra charges, and I haven't been able to change the settings to accept it. Would I recommend it, not really, I am somewhat old fashion, I like paper and disc, not web downloads.

    Not Really Convinced This Was a Good Buy

    Needed the program for my new computer and the Best Buy salesman suggested this because I needed to also install it on other computers. I followed instructions, this was not the first time installing new programs on computers. This Office is just strange, maybe it's just me. Your work isn't save as usual, there is no "save as" feature, it either gets saved on computer in pdf form or on a cloud. Maybe I did something wrong, maybe someone can help me. All I wanted was a Office Program I could use, I'm quite use to the differences with new programs but this one is too different. I am not happy with this. Opened to any suggestions of how to fix this problem.

    I have been a Microsoft office customer for a long time....When I purchased this Microsoft office 365 it was alittle different...I always felt safe to purchase a new one every year through best buy, not through Microsoft itself. This time Best Buy changed things and everybody should be aware that when you purchase this product Best Buy now makes you put a card on file for next year automatically charging for next year....Just a heads up for another customers...

    I use this product primarily for my academic work and have recieved lots of positive feedback from fellow students about the great PowerPoint designs available for presentations. I like that one can also insert comments in the side bar when creating MS Word documents! This feature is great for editting information and providing suggestions or recommendations for improvements to team members written work. I will continue to be a loyal customer of MS products and I have yet to find any significant faults in the software. Great product! I highly recommend MS Office 365 for anyone that is serious about creating eye-catching and stunning presentations in PowerPoint, Word, Access, or Excel programs.

    Email not quite ready for prime time

    Most Office 365 apps are equivalent to 'full' (expensive) Office, but NOT Outlook. You cannot create email address groups nor send to a group. Instead you must select individual addressees. Nor can you assign an email to a category. PLEASE! These are ANCIENT capabilities and MS cant figure out how to include them?. You do get the ability to see multiple web email accounts in a single, easily managed email app. Fortunately Word, Excel, Powerpoint are identical to full up Office. You do get Access database app. I will not renew unless MS can figure out how to release a fully functional email app. I have gone back to web gemail.

    I took my computer into the Geeks in Texas to fix my laptop and didn't know to ask for them to re-install My Office back onto my computer. So I took it to Oklahoma and they told me I had to ask the right questions (even the ones I didn't know to ask) for it to be done right. I was irked, but I bought Office 365, and had them put it on all of my devises. It's not Office but I have it on all my laptops now. If you don't want to pay every year, then this isn't for you. You do have the option to buy Office personal and Office business outright. (only 1 computer though)

    I order this every year to put on my Mac. I was glad that I could use my rewards from a recent large purchase to reduce the price of something I buy every year no matter what the price. The only thing that surprised me was that it wasn't downloadable. I had to wait for the card with the product code to come in the mail. Thankfully I had not waited until the expiration day of the software! So be sure to order a couple of weeks before it expires. I don't remember how long it took to come. Also, for Mac users, it is a little confusing because I now have Word for Mac and regular Word on my computer. I will probably have to go to the Mac store to get it straightened out.

    The setup seemed to go smoothly. Although I’m not sure if selecting the ‘up to 6 people’ was necessary. I have it downloaded on my MacBook Pro for me and my husband is a user of the same laptop. Also, I don’t know how to add it to our iPhones. The only thing that I saw so far is for an extra charge. So, still figuring it out. As for the product itself, the only thing I’ve tried is to make labels or try to print directly on an envelope and it’s complocated. No real Microsoft help unless you look separately online to find directions.

    365 is GREAT - Poor job of explaining what it is

    I spent nearly 30 minutes with the Microsoft rep inside the store. He explained so much and I can't thank him enough. Just like Xbox Live, Microsoft has decided to sell subscriptions to their service instead of "office 2016." Ultimately, it makes sense so I get it. Most people don't want to pay for one more item, but.. Some of the new features are critical for students. They should seriously advertise the ability to convert an entire document into MLA, AMA or other formats with the press of one button. Just this feature makes Office 365 priceless to any student.

    This Microsoft Office 365 is awesome. I was able to download it onto my iPad, iPhone, and computers at home. It provides the usual Outlook, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. The one program I use the most is OneDrive. 1 TB of space is more than enough to store all my documents, preventing my iPad, iPhone, and computer from filling up. Microsoft continues to upgrade the program and adding new features making this better than Google Docs. My suggestion to anyone looking for a discount and fearing on spending $99 for one year; wait till Black Friday. I've been pretty lucky and have gotten this program for $80.

    I bought this Office 365 expecting to use it on multiple laptops / Computers. I was able to download it on my I Mac but when I tried to load it on another laptop I kept getting an error messages! I called Microsoft and after over 1 1/2 hrs they could not rectify the problem and said that their technical support team was aware of the problem! That was almost 2 months ago and they still have not resolved this problem. It says it does up to 5 PCs / Macs. It's a lie. The new system of scratching the serial number and downloading off the internet stinks!! I don't think I would have this problem if they still had the discs!

    I was reluctant to go with Office 365. We have good-working recent versions of Word on our "machines" and these did not need to be replaced. After some serious consideration, we decided to go for it and I am now -- after almost a month of use -- glad that we did. All of us on the same version is helpful (not required, of course), but the real benefit is that we won't have to buy new Word versions on the next couple of computers we purchase. In the end, this will save money.

    Office 365 home edition for 6 users

    Bought and installed this version of Office 365 home edition for up to six users. Installation was easy on the main computer and then you send an email to invite your other users to share your license. Overall very easy install, and great price. Of course this was an "initial buy" of the product @ $99 which had to be set up on auto renew, so next year it may be less of a bargain when it auto renews, but still, if you're a user of MS Office products, if it was twice the initial price, it would still be a bargain.

    I had reservations about the MS Office suite per subscription. However, I would have to say 6 months into it. It is a good deal. In that you acquire the updates. You also get space online to place files. In this package I acquired you can put it on difference devices that are yours / family. I have on my laptop, wife laptop, cell and iPads. I am adjusting since I am used to buying as opposed to subscription. I am not used to paying yearly. However, I have the assurance I get all the new updates without issue without having to buy software / or buy an upgrade.

    Microsoft has changed their menu interface again, so just like 2007, this will take some getting used to. This wasn't as difficult a transition as before and it seems to be easier to use. I haven't had an opportunity to try out all the programs yet, but so far word and outlook are very good. I don't care for the 365 option (another Microsoft computer tax to pay), but it is the least expensive option and it comes with 3 licenses that work with both Windows and Mac. Microsoft is more difficult about licensing; once it goes on a device, it stays with that device even if you uninstall it. Their licenses are non-transferable.

    Being a desktop user since the first version of Windows OS I've never had a real reason to use Office 365. Getting this subscription bundled with my new iMac I was a little hesitant on making the switch. But I am really enjoying Office 365! The price was excellent! And the tools I got and the number of devices each person can use their subscription with was awesome! I almost didn't make the purchase but I am so glad that I did! I'd recommend this subscription to any home users of the products as you won't be disappointed.
