Microsoft’s Home Use Program Now Offers Office 365 for Consumers

I’m not sure when this happened, but Microsoft’s Home Use Program has quietly added support for Office 365 Home and Personal.

As you may know, the Home Use Program (HUP) allows Microsoft’s Software Assurance (SA) customers to offer various versions of the Office suite, and now Office 365, to their employees to use at home at a steep discount.

Previously, HUP provided Office 365 ProPlus, Office Professional Plus 2019, or Office Home and Business 2019 as options at a cost of just $15 each. But as of a recent change, you can now pick between Office 365 Home and Personal as well.

It’s not clear what the pricing is, but based on the real world costs of those other Office products, I’d imagine it’s $15 each or less. Note, of course, that Office 365 Home and Personal are subscriptions, so you’ll need to pay for it again each year.

And yes, it supports stacking: If you already have an active Office 365 Home or Office 365 Personal subscription, your HUP benefit will add an additional year.
