I talked about the “Ultimate Steal” last September, the Ultimate Steal is an offer to college students with a valid .edu email address and a course load of at least 0.5 credits (although I’m not sure if they would actually be able to check how many classes you are taking, the .edu email address may be enough) for Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate (which retails for $680) for $59.95, that’s about a 91% discount off of the retail price.

Well I am just reminding all of you about this because the promotion is going to end on May 16.

This is a tremendous deal especially if you are one of those who NEEDS to use Office and one of those alternatives (OpenOffice) isn’t good enough for you, I understand how you feel, I would rather not be the weird one who used that OTHER program but unfortunately I don’t really want to spend any money on my word processor. But, if you want to pick it up head on over here, and again, valid .edu email address and 0.5 credit course load.
