Microsoft Offers Special Promotion for Office 2008

by , 3:05 PM EDT, November 1st, 2007

Microsoft announced a special promotion on Thursday. In the "Super Suite Deal," customers who buy any version of Microsoft Office 2004 for the Mac between November 1, 2007 and January 14, 2008 will receive a complimentary copy of Office 2008 when it ships for just the cost of shipping, handling and applicable taxes.

Below is the upgrade matrix with shipping costs:


Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition is a new combination for Mac users that features the Office 2008 applications together with the Microsoft Expression Media digital asset management system. Consumers in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico are eligible to cash in on this Super Suite Deal which lasts until January 14, 2008.

Customers can access the Super Suite Deal at a special Microsoft page and obtain a coupon that can be redeemed for Office 2008 when it ships.

An interesting feature of this promotion was pointed out by Microsoft's PR firm Edelman in Seattle. "As far as licensing goes, both licenses for Office 2004 and Office 2008 remain valid. Therefore, each suite can be used on a different Mac," according to Aimee Martin.
