    Good morning,

    I am in the process of ordering the Ultimate Steal for students. I also
    noticed Microsoft has announced if your purchase Office between now and the
    end of the year you will receive a free upgrade to 2010. Does this include
    the Ultimate Steal version, given the steep discount Microsoft gives to
    students?

    Thank you for your help.

    I noticed there is a tab in the top right corner of the screen that says "Buy
    Office 2007 Today, Download Office 2010 FREE!" On the page for Australia, it
    has it right on the main page.

    Would someone please say yes or no.

    Thanks.

    We are not Microsoft employees over here. Try to locate a phone number in
    that site and call them for a more definitive answer.

    It says,

    "Buy Office 2007 Today, Download Office 2010 FREE!"

    right on the main page for the US also. Perhaps you are using some
    blocking software?

    JoAnn/Bob,

    I understand your position. I was hoping "official" Microsoft staff were
    monitoring the forums.

    I have talked to MS Store. Their answer is no. But I looked at Microsoft's
    website regarding the Office 2010 Technology Guarantee, it says Office
    Ultimate is covered (I printed off the page where it identifies the product
    as qualifying).

    Hence my dilemma. Is the website just marketing and not specific to the
    student deals. Or was the MS Store incorrect.

    I have not found any other number to verify which is correct.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, these are newsgroups provided for the public to discuss issues
    and help each other. As to the quandary, you could always just wait till
    2010 is released, and buy it then.

    Nancy,

    No. These students discounted packages never qualify for free upgrades
    simply because they are not cost effective to do so.

    As you say, there is a steep discount on Office 2007 so you can either
    wait until 2010 is released end June 2010 or you could buy Office 2007
    now and then buy another copy of Office 2010. I don't recommend this
    approach though.

    I do, however, strongly suggest to download Office 2010 Beta now and
    start getting used to it because the Released Candidate version is not
    likely to be any different from the beta version.

    Thanks all for your information. I am surprised how Microsoft is using the
    marketing of Buy Office 2007 and Receive 2010 for Free on its web pages and
    not standing behind it.

    Have a great weekend all.

    Unfortunately, no.

    But have a look here, specifically at the comments from Hilary Krant, who appears to
    be an MS employee:

    http://blogs.technet.com/office2010/archive/2010/03/04/get-office-today-or-
    tomorrow.aspx

    The reply refers to the US editions. Not sure what the answer would be elsewhere.
