ZDnet is reporting that an ebay merchant is offering an Office 365 Personal subscription for $29.99.

The ebay item is here and we’re wary about it.  Many have been sold (1,154 as we type this) and there’s good feedback both for the merchant and the Office 365 purchases.

An Office 365 Personal annual fee is $69.99 for Office software on just one PC/Mac plus one tablet.  It’s hard to understand how anyone could be selling it for $40 less and make a profit.

Keep in mind that this is the ‘Personal’ package which isn’t as good a deal as the Office 365 Home offer which is $99.99 for five software licences on PC/Mac plus on five tablets.

If you’re interested in Office 365 Personal and are willing to take a chance, then maybe try the Ebay merchant’s offer.  Caveat Emptor.
