How to save £13 when renewing your Microsoft Office 365 subscription

When I originally wrote this post in February 2016 it was possible to save £13 when renewing your Microsoft Office 355 subscription. In April 2020, nearly four years, on I decided to see if there are still savings to be had. Whilst the savings are not as great as they were it is still possible to save money compared to buying straight from Microsoft.

My Office 365 subscription is due for renewal every February. I remember in 2016 that Microsoft sent me reminder emails about renewing and quoted me £79.99 for the year. At the time it didn't seem too expensive but was certainly a lot more than I paid in 2015 when I first purchased Office 365 from Novatech for £52.37. In 2016 I renewed my Office 365 through Novatech for £66.99, saving me £13.

The savings for Office 365 no longer exist or if they do they amount to about £1. However, savings can be made on buying Office 2019 Home & Student 2019 edition.

In 2020 the prices for Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019 from Microsoft and from Novatech and EBuyer are listed below:

Microsoft - £119.99

Novatech - £110.99

EBuyer - £113.99

Maximum Saving: £9
