Amazon’s European sites are offering good deals on Microsoft 365 Family (for 6 users) including an unusual offer we’ve not seen before. The best deal amounts to just €5 a month which you can use to extend an existing Microsoft 365 Family plan. We’ve looked at each offer, figured out which is best and how to avoid the traps.
Our links are to the Deutsch/German site Amazon.de but the same Euro prices should apply in other EU countries, while the offer lasts. The offers are supplied by Amazon directly, not a third-party.
All the offers are for Microsoft 365 Family either new or existing customers. The Family plan works for up to six people who each get the latest Office 365 software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook) for either Windows or Mac plus Apple and Android apps. Also 1TB of OneDrive online storage, ClipChamp video editing and Publisher (Windows only).
€69.99 for a year of Microsoft 365 Family
A year of Microsoft 365 Family usually costs €99.99 so €69.99 is a good deal.
That’s €5.83 per month for up to six people.
€144.99 for a 27 months of Microsoft 365 Family
This is an offer we’ve never seen before, 27 months (2 years and 3 months) of Microsoft 365 Family for €74.99 . It appears to combine a 15 month pack with another 12 months so it’s not clear if you get a single activation code or two.
For 27 months it’s €5.37 per month for up to six people.
€74.99 for a 15 months of Microsoft 365 Family
The best deal is a common bundled offer, Microsoft 365 Family plus a limited subscription to some other software (usually anti-virus) for €74.99 for 15 months.
That’s the lowest price of these Amazon offers, 15 months is €5 per month for up to six people.
There are three offers at the same price, Microsoft 365 Family 15 months plus either:
- Norton 360 Deluxe
- McAfee Total Protection
- WISO Tax 2023
It doesn’t matter which one you choose, if you’re only going to use the Microsoft 365 software.
Ignore the extra software
Our long-standing advice for these offers is to carefully check the price, ignoring the additional software. If the price is good for Microsoft 365 alone, then buy the bundle and ignore the extra software (i.e. don’t install it).
The extra software is usually a limited subscription with the makers hoping the unwary will pay for more time. These days Windows alone has good security protection and extra software is not necessary.
Prices are correct at the time of writing but might change at any time. Check the price and offer (especially number of months) before buying.
As usual, the links we provide do NOT include any commission or payment to us. Amazon doesn’t like sites, like ours, that show and analyze prices or criticize them.
