    wasn't sure if Microsoft had closed this loophole
    It seems they didn't. But hey, I got a year of Office 365 Home for $10 because of it.

    Can anyone say what would happen I you already have a Office 365 Home subscription?
    As stated in my above post.

    1TB: you can store anything that you want there within the limit. After a year, what you've stored remains in storage. You can access it, download stuff but you won't be able to upload. This is from experience. This also affects lumia backup, you won't be able to do new backups if your office 365 expires and the onedrive storage used is more than 30GB
    Chintan, Thanks for the clarification.

    Chintan,

    Question: I currently have 10.2 TB (yes, TB), and when I activate this 1 TB promo, it should raise it to 11 TB, and change. Is their anything I can do to preserve my available space? Do I just have to keep re-newing, and I will keep it all? Thanks.

    Please forgive my dipression.

    In case you dont follow WC on twitter or missed the article about the Lumia Offers App...there is a new offer available. If you open the app you should see Office 365 Personal for 1 Year. This includes 1TB of OneDrive storage, Office installed on a PC, tablet, and phone, and skype minutes.

    I am still trying to figure out if my Surface Pro 2 counts as a tablet or PC. I installed it on there and it says i am using my one PC office space. This is a tablet damn it! Oh well i really just need this offer for the free 1TB Onedrive space. I was just about to buy O365 and then this offer came up.

    Owning a Lumia 950 XL keeps getting better and better! First a free 100$ display dock and now this! I love MS!
    A note on whether Office 365 on the Surface Pro 2 is a tablet or a PC. If you install O365 first on your Pro it will take up the first available license from PC, if you install O365 on a PC/MAC first, then on the Pro it will take up a tablet license. :D

    Actually I found it to be even better than that! It takes up tablet or pc depending on what the other device is, so installed on pro2 first which did look like it took up pc but when I installed it on my laptop it must have automatically changed it to tablet on the pro. Point is I didn't have to uninstall it on the pro to get it on my laptop, I just installed it on the laptop and it worked. It seems it is either a tablet or a pc so you can have it on a iPad + pro 2 OR desktop + pro 2 and it doesn't matter the order in which you install it.

    I just contacted MS support about how this stacks with other Office 365 subscriptions and DO NOT ACTIVATE it if you have a different Office 365 subscription with a longer time range.

    If have a Office 365 Unversity subscription that lasts till 2018. I was told by MS support that using this code would downgrade my account to Personal and expire in 2017. Activating this would actually be detrimental to my account.

    I just got this by clicking on the link and Everything Went well. For those that were asking some questions about what happens if you already have subscripiton, this one will add one year when your suscribtion period is over.
    BUT there is also one thing people need to know, this is a SUBSCRIPTION, which means you got ONE year free, and it will automatically charge you Money when it is time for the next year. I Think it is very important to know this since I Believe there is many people that only intall this because it is free and don't really need it or use it. So pay attention after a year that you will be charged for subscription for this Product !!!

    What does that mean? I redeem this offer, pay 10 Dollars for the Home package, and then what? Quit the home package? And it still stays active for a month somehow? Anywhere I can read up on this a little more?


    Also, since I'm really only interested in this for this reason, do I understand correctly this Lumia Offer does not include an Office copyfor my home PC by default?


    Thank you guys, wouldn't have noticed the offer if not for this thread!

    Had office home via the trick activated this and it stacked (my date went from 2017 to 2018) did the trick again and all seems fine.

    Its well advertised on the net that you take out a 1 month subscription for home then you turn off auto renewal in manage account and your subscription stays as the home edition

    Germany is one of the countries that can enjoy the offer.. "Normally, a one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal costs $70. But if you live in the approved regionsthe United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Swedenyoull receive it for free."

    Lumia 950, Lumia 950XL owners can claim a free year of Office 365 | PCWorld

    I am staying in Malaysia, set the region in my phone to US, couldn't get the offer..

    I'm not sure what would happen. I used to have 10TB but when my free office 365 license expired it went away. Even when I renewed the office 365 license, I didn't get the 10TB back. There was a lot of noise when MS decided to go back to 1TB.

    I might recommend you using that 1TB with another account so that you are definitely sure of getting 11TB total rather than attempting to activate the 1TB and risk lose 10TB

    You should also talk to onedrive support

    You can go into. Your account online and turn off auto renewal after you activate it, if you do not want to auto renew it.

    Before everyone starts crying, perhaps other regions will come on later, much like the display dock adaptor. Australia was almost a month later than the US............

    What happens if you are already a subscriber to Office 365? Will they give you some type of credit towards it?
