Free Microsoft Office 2010 Upgrade

Earlier this week, Microsoft confirmed the rumors of a free upgrade for Office 2007 buyers.

Microsoft will offer a free upgrade to the upcoming Office 2010 suite starting today through September 30th, 2010.

So if you purchase Office 2007 during this period you will be able to download a corresponding edition of Office 2010 for free when the new suite becomes available in June. If you’d rather get the DVD installation disc you will have to pay a small shipping-and-handling fee.

Since Office 2010 will have a slightly different lineup from Office 2007, here’s what you will be eligible for:

  • Office Home and Student 2007 = Office Home and Student 2010
  • Office Standard 2007 = Office Home and Business 2010
  • Office Small Business 2007 and Office Professional 2007 = Office Professional 2010

Here is what the Office 2010 editions will include:

  • Office Home and Student 2010: Word, Excel, PowerPoint & OneNote
  • Office Home and Business 2010: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote & Outlook
  • Office Professional 2010: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher & Access

An interesting thing to note here is that currently Office 2007 Home and Student sells for $104 at, which is $45 less than the planned $149 list price for Office Home and Student 2010.

Are you planning on taking advantage of this deal?
