Mac version does not include publisher

Dan

@Moishy:
Umm, that link is in the post…

Shmuel

Thanks Dan.
I’m a public school teacher. This works. Please note, I’m no rov or poisek, however if you’re not an active student or teacher, and just wish to fool Microsoft, then I assume this would be genaiva. Ask your Rov.

Chaim

Aren’t we all homeschoolers in the end of the day?
School itself is never enough!

Jon

It’s asking for verification for homeschool

abka

General question; Is it totally safe to sign in to Google at these independent websites?

alt123

I chose homeschooled and it’s still asking for verification. Do I need to send something in?

shmuelfan

@shmuel
Agreed…

Dan

@Jon:
DDF reports are that the code will come within a couple hours without verification required for that option.

A

@Chaim: Good point…

Anonymous

I chose home still asks my for verification after I paid

Jon

@Dan: Noted. Thanks. Will keep you posted.

barry

I selected college student (which I am)- will they require further verification?

shmo

@Shmuel: Thanks for the tip.

Dan

@Anonymous:
Have some patience folks…

@barry:
Did you upload your ID?

jo

It’s still asking for proof I clicked homeschool

Rafi

Dan, isn’t it free for students?

yosef

Im confused. Does this work only for educators or students as well?

SB

It’s Asking for Verification of Homeschooling after you place the order

Cool

Is there any catch? Why is it so cheap?

Barry

@dan- no, but order went through anyway, waiting for download link. Will they send it or request verification?

Anonymous

@SB: Dan said to wait and have patience

Anonymous

There’s no catch they just want to help out teachers and students. I’m a teacher and the school sends this link at the beginning of each school year.

AG

After ordering, I checked the order status in my account. The status is “eligibility hold”. Also this “Your order requires verification of academic eligibility
before we can ship it. Click here to upload your eligibility.”

Dan

The folks on DDF who did this said it takes time and that it worked without verification for homeschool.

I’d recommend some patience…

me

Is this 14.99 price only for one year?

Charles

Does anyone know whether or not this will ever expire?

Abka

@me: It’s a download of the desktop version, not Office 365.

Charles

As per this link, at the bottom, it implies that it probably does last forever.

YisroelTech

@Charles:
It’s the normal office installation, so I don’t think this will ever expire.

Anonymous

People-it will last as long as you keep it on your computer
It’s a regular version-not subscription

Anonymous

It seems like it may be a scam on a certain level, as they are charging $9.95 for autocad when you can get it for free directly from the autocad site as a student or educator. It seems like they are a third party selling what is already free to begin with.

Pol

Is it good only for Mac?

Anonymous

@Charles:
I went to the Microsoft link and only available to educators 1-12th grade. This may or may not include homeschoolers since it is not listed. According to the documents they do require proof for educators and homeschooling. If they have a bug and verification is not needed, it is up to each individual to decide what to do but you should know the facts.

Home School Students/Parents
Membership in Home School Association

@Dan: so should I ignore request for proof after I paid and just wait?

Abka

Got my download link! Thanks Dan!

Dan

@Abka:
Awesome!
Which selection did you choose?

Huda

I didn’t choose anything. Just left it blank and got the download link a half hour later.

Luckyluck

Got it. Homeschool. order status went from “eligibility hold” to “pending” and then got the link email. Thanks Dan

joe

got the code no verification needed

Dan

@me:
It does not expire.

@Huda:
@Luckyluck:
@joe:
Enjoy!

Moshe

Thanks Dan. just received my code and download link.

ThePro

I just received my download link and product key code as well. I chose Homeschooling.
Everyone will get theirs just as Dan said.

Dan

See what a little savlanut does my dear readers 🙂

Moshe

@Moshe: I chose Home School they did ask for proof but i did receive the code.

jan

I received the download link. It says “1 month Basic access” So i paid 14.99 for 1 month?

Ari

Does the Mac version work on an Ipad or only on a Mac book?

Dan

@jan:
The download link may only work for a month, but once downloaded it doesn’t expire.

Howie

Haven’t gotten my link yet, but JouneyEd.com, who is who we are ordering from, is selling Microsoft Office 2016 Work-at-Home for the same $15, with no mention of an elegibility requirement.

Also comes with $10,000 ID Theft protection from Norton. Is that useful?

Thank you!

osher

On my Order Status says:
Your order requires verification of academic eligibility
before we can ship it. Click here to upload your eligibility.

Will I get a Link?

eli

@eli: got my link. thanks genius

Phil

It works. Got the download link 30 min later

B Braun

Journeyed deal for microsoft office works for all nonprofits as well

Perry

My product key isn’t being recognized by Microsoft…

Michael

If you take a minute to read through all questions and comments, you will avoid asking repetitive questions that have been answered already.

dave

i used “Homeschooling” and finished my order. received an email saying order went through. 30 min later received another email with a link for the download

Sam

Can I install on both my computers?

Barry

Ordered as student- got my download link no problem without needing further verification, thnx dan!

journeyed

@Howie:

Journeyed also has eligibility requirements.

click on ‘who’s eligible’ right above the price

yosef12

MD

Person

How do you copy it onto a disk for backup?

Lara

Do we need a code to purchase? Tia!

i am jewish

Why isn’t this stealing ?! If your not homeschooling ?

israel

@Person:
i would love to know this also

Galit

Is there a place to get a free version for students?

Talmid chuchum

@i am jewish: if anything it’s “taus akim” your not taking anything away from anyone

i am jewish

Tus akum is asur and def not what hashem wants there is no bracha.

YMW

@Galit:
14.99 for a regularly 369.00 product is practically FREE!

i am jewish

You are fooling them it’s not taus akum

yuneeq

You wrote one purchase per person, but I have successfully made 2 orders.

effy

@talmidchuchum
I wouldnt be so sure of that. You may be a TC but def not a poseik

Anonymous

@Talmid chuchum:

wrong. its HAtaus akum and assur gamur. dont pasken unless you are qualified

Allene

Is there a limit to how many we can order?

Wondering

If I am not a home school educator or a teacher what gives me the right to download this? I dont understand the offer

bwg

does the link/key come in an email?

Helen

Ordered an hour ago. Still no link or product key

code dont wor

got the code but its not working

MacDan

OpenOffice=FREE

Abka

@Dan: Dan this just awesome! I selected student, as I am a student. Installed and ready to go! Thanks for the timing, I am using this as a business expense as well, end of year y’know.

Momm

Placed my order 2 hours ago. I received confirmation but no code yet…

sampavman

To all those questioning whether it’s ethical to purchase this under the home school option, it appears this may be open to parents of students as well (that is parents of any child between k-12 and on into college). If you click on the details button next to “who’s eligible” and then click on “other documents” it seems to indicate parents of these students can purchase this as well. Yes?

Dan

@yuneeq:
Several DDF reports of only getting 1, but I guess that’s not a hard and fast rule.

Where is it?

I ordered 3 at 4:30. I got a confirmation, but eligibility is still pending, no codes yet.

Dan

@Where is it?:
That’s why I wrote to order 1.

homeschool teacher

my product key did not work on microsot – any ideas?

Yitzi

@Dan thanks so much for the post. Do you know if its possible to buy for a laptop that’s not yet purchased by saving the download file on a backup hard drive?

teacher

to all those who are worried about stealing…
Dan posted this for the educators out there, don’t feel a need to purchase if you aren’t one
thank you Dan for posting

abka

@MacDan: It’s not proper to introduce the concept of Opensource software to the general audience with such a short post 😉

YitzyS

@MacDan: You commented that Open Office is free. I tried Open Office a while back and found it very hard to use and not optimal, deeming (in my eyes) Microsoft Office as being worth it’s price. Open Office, as many open source programs, are bogged down with many useless features that make them impractical and complicated. (An open source program is a program that is created and worked on by any volunteer programmer who wants to. They are always free, but usually is a case of too many cooks spoil the broth.) The only open source programs that I found useful were VLC video program (the program, not the app) and Audacity for audio editing.

chaya

thanks dan! great deal, will share your post with my fellow homeschoolers

Ag

Placed the order as homeschooled almost 3 hours ago. Order was confirmed but no follow up yet with a link. Order status says “logistics”. Anyone else have this issue?

collage student

If i by ordered it, but by mistake wrote that i am a collage student, is there anything that can be done?

Osher

Ordered mines 3 hours ago got notification but still didn’t get the download code. Has this offer expired?@chaya:

Vicky

I placed it as Homeschooled at 7pm. No code yet.

MS

Same here. I’m waiting for.the link for almost three hours. Is this deal still on?

Steve

@Ag I am having the exact same issue

LoLo

@Ag: Yep, I’m waiting for my link too over 4 hours, gotta have savlanut..

Gabbai

Hey guys, why not stop flooding the blog with “I’m still waiting messages”. The worst is that your credit card will not be charged and this will be like a First Class flight NYC to London for $50 that doesn’t get honored! Have patience. If you get rejected as a homeschooler, then post so others don’t waste their time, but don’t flood the blog just because you don’t have patience! By the way I’m also still waiting.

confused

when i check my order status its asking me to verify my eligibility??? and yes i did select home school.

Roseo

Placed the order 6 hours ago as home schooler. Still no code and order says “logistics”.???

Anonymous

@LoLo: now almost 12 hours later and still no link. Everyone else get theirs?

dans fan

ordered mines last night and still waiting with savlunes to get something

Nothing here

Order placed around 4:30 yesterday, still nothing today.

chaya

hi dan
I tried this last night and have not yet received the code, my order status is listed as ‘logistics’.
I actually am homeschooling my children and uploaded the requested verification.
Any ideas as to why it hasnt gone through yet?
thanks

Ariel

Any updates for those who never received the download link?

Ariel

Any updates for who that never received any download links?

Joe

Bought it last night…Still waiting…Anyone else not get their’s yet either?

David

Still waiting from last night at 7:30 pm received confirmation email. Order has remained in processing status. Is this deal still going maybe I need to try again?

Usher

I purchase it yesterday around 9:30, and I’m still waiting for the product key, it says on the order status ‘processing’.
Why should that take that long??

Sol

I’ve selected “College Student” – Will that NOT work? is this thing over for me?

Vicky

Ordered it at 7pm yesterday. No Download code sent.
Does anyone ekse have the same issue?

Osher

Same here, purchased yesterday about 7:pm, I am still waiting for the product key.It would be nice if Dan gets a update, and reply’s here whats the issue for all those who are still waiting for the key.

Thanks

Abe Da'Babe

I ordered yesterday at 4:53 pm EST. still no code! So warning to all this morning guy not work but worth the risk. I do homeschool one of my kids and will send them a letter for same. Will update blei neder.

tehila

can a speech thereaapist get this?

Ag

@Gabbai: I paid with PayPal so already got charged. Also says non-refundable so will likely have a fight on our hands if link never comes over.

Abe Da'Babe

Ok quick update, just checked and my order was cancelled!:) my account seemed to be refunded too. I geuss the deal is dead or requires proof! I went the lazy way of homeschool but now I will do it again as student and teacher. One for each kid as they need it!

Vicky

I just received my Download code. Ordered it 7pm.
Hope it works !!

Dan

@Vicky:
Awesome!

Folks, my guess is that they got slammed with thousands of DD orders and their processing times are shooting up…

A little patience here won’t kill ya.

Osher

Just got my product key code, waiting since yesterday 7:pm

Helen

OK. Just got the download link.waited since 7 last nite

Josh

Just got code

Usher

Just got my product key…
Thanks DAN!!!!

dans fan

Just got my product key
Thanks DAN!!!!

mg

If I need to install this Office in a few months or longer on a new PC, how will I be able to do so?

Can I download the 2 MB file and save it now and use it later on a new PC? Is there another method?

LoLo

Got my link, thanks!

I guess someone had to manually approve the orders, I didn’t see anyone reporting they got their link after business hours

ben

just code my download as well! only took 3 hours!!

David M

got my download link for PC and for Mac within an hour

abc

got it! took about an hour

jj

Got 2 links.
1 32bit and the other one 64bit.
What is the difference?

DanG

@jj: It depends on what your computer is. If you have a 64 bit PC, then install the 64 bit version. That’s all.

yahooodis

I ordered this morning as “Other”, checked off “Home School”, paid with PayPal, received immediate confirmation, received my link in about 1 hour. Thank you, Dan!

yahooodis

P.S. I wasn’t asked for any verification.

Yitzi S

@jj:for most usages and maximum compatability 32 bit is recommended. For extremely high capacity usage together with a 64 bit processor then 64 bit will be better

Fischel

@Dan: thanks for the post, would you know if this can be purchased and stored on a portable hard drive for a later use on a device yet to be purchased?

??

it did not make me enter the product key anywhere.
but says its registered??
do you need to enter it in anywhere??

bl

Thanks dan i got it b”h,

Hi everybody, i am using now office 10 what will happen it crash or will be replaced any instructions?

mg

@Fischel I am wondering the same thing as you.

Barry

@abka:
No. Only sign into Google if the website is Google, with an HTTPS in the address bar. Otherwise your login information will be compromised.

Barry

@Howie: Norton protects you by messing up and slowing your computer down so much that you can’t use it.
This way you can’t visit any suspicious websites!

Vicky

Thanks Dan!!
The download code worked !!

Sharon

I am planning on buying a new computer. Does the link and key to the Microsoft Office expire?

AG

@Abe Da’Babe: Did you get a link after purchasing as student?

Vicky

To find out if your PC is 32 or 64 bit:
Click START
click CONTROL PANEL
click SYSTEM & MAINTENANCE
click SYSTEM
IT WILL TELL YOU IF YOUR PC IS 32 or 64 bit

Barry

I Just placed an order an selected Home school and it is still asking to upload one of the flowing
Receipt for Home School Curriculum
Membership in Home School Association
Letter of intent to Home School with local district
Legal Defense Association or Charter School card

is there any way to go around it?

Thanks

Barry

@Dan: No

MS

I purchased it last night 9 PM and got the link this morning. Thanks Dan!

Miles

I wasn’t sure how many of my computers could have this Office 2016 installed. It would not successfully activate on the second computer, so evidently the answer is “one”.

The activation process mentions that this is a “subscription.” Does that mean that Office quits working a year from now?

AC

Help please

I ordered 2 copies, as both my kids are enrolled in a cyber school and we homeschool KoDesh studies.

I ordered yesterday afternoon, under homeschool, receipt order confirmation as well as the norton protection email, but as of now, i have not received the code. Checking on the order, it is listed as pending receipt of eligibility.

I do not have any of the necessary info, as its not a registered KoDesh homeschool.

Guidance please.

Thanks

Dan

@Miles:
It’s a permanent subscription.

@AC:
That’s why I wrote in the post that the limit was 1.

AC

Missed that, sorry dan :-), and i hate when people do that, lesson learned.

Any options?

Anonymous

I purchased got code
I have already on my Mac a 365 version and so when I downloaded this one from link it did not ask me for the code so my online version is expiring in March will it ask me when that expires??

Duvie

I got the email with the link and product key as described in the post BUT the download is only 2 MB? How is that possible? Also it says next to the download button “Basic access 1 month included” does that mean this is just a 1 month trial of the software?? Please advise so I can know if I should try to get my money back

mg

Duvie – it downloads the program when you install it. The 2 MB file isn’t the full program.

Jacob

Which link do I download the 32 or 64?

Levi

@israel:

Me too. I would like to know how to get a backup I can use to restore this if I get a new laptop / do a factory reset.

Based on my past experience purchasing MS suites through educational portals, I believe that the product key will NOT work with the regular MS Office download off the MS website.

Yada

Folks this has been around for years. It’s valid. Stop worrying.

Comment

If you say home-school and you aren’t, you are lying. There is no need to ask a Rav.

S

STILL ALIVE.

THANKS DAN

chaya

hi
I purchased this last night, I’m a homeschooler and sent my verification. My order is now listed as “shipped”. I have not received anything via email.
any idea what that means?

Mark

For those wondering why they don’t have to enter download key. It looks like it is encoded in the actual download.

When you download the program, the file name has the product key in it.

(Setup.x86.en-us_ProPlusRetail_Y4???-?????-?????-?????-???HH_TX_PR_act_1_)

Guarana Hernandez

I don’t see where one indicates whether one wants the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the software. Is the software for both Windows operating systems?

??

@Mark: ty

Teacher

I had Onedrive on my computer before I installed Microsoft 2016 and the Onedrive that automatically gets set up with 2016 is interfering with my original Onedrive. Did anyone else experience this issue?
Can you advise on how to disable the Onedrive that comes with 2016?

yaakov

Is this still on? I can’t log on.. It tells me that not connected only when opening this site????

mark

Tx Dan!!!
I just ordered it & got link 20-30 min later. Is this download only good for a month & then I will need to download the permanent version when I receive the disk??

Isng
