    Can I get Office 365 free with a Skype subscription?

    Yes, when you buy an eligible* Skype calling subscription, we will include a subscription to Office 365 Personal absolutely free.

    Office 365 Personal gives you the latest Microsoft Office applications, fully installed on multiple devices. Learn more about Office 365 Personal

    To get started, go to the Skype subscriptions page and choose a subscription. If it includes Office 365 Personal for free, this will be clearly indicated.

    *Eligibility varies among countries and subscription types. If the subscription you choose does not show the special offer, it means Office 365 is not included with that subscription.

    When you purchase your Skype subscription, we’ll send you a confirmation email. You will also receive an email from Microsoft telling you everything you need to know about activating your Office 365 Personal subscription. You can manage your Office 365 subscription in your Microsoft account.

    Don’t worry if you can’t find a product key – you don’t always need one to install Office. To check, sign in to your Office 365 account and view your purchase history.

    Your Office 365 subscription will renew alongside your Skype calling subscription. Skype subscriptions are set to renew automatically, so as long as you have a valid payment method for your recurring payment, you don’t need to worry about manually renewing your Skype or Office 365 subscriptions. To check the status of your Skype subscription, just sign in to your Skype account.

    How do I update the payment method for my Skype subscription?

    If you cancel your Skype calling subscription, your free Office 365 Personal subscription is also canceled. Both subscriptions will remain active until the end of the term you signed up for – so if you bought a 3 month subscription, it will continue to run until the end of the 3 month period.

    How do I cancel my Skype subscription?

    That depends on which version of Office 365 you already have. We’ve set out the different options below.

    I have an existing Office 365 Personal subscription

    If your existing Office 365 Personal subscription is not set to automatically renew, you get the free offer. Your existing Office 365 Personal subscription will be extended by the duration of the Skype calling subscription (1, 3 or 12 months).

    If your existing Office 365 Personal subscription is set to automatically renew, you cannot claim the free offer unless you cancel your existing Office 365 Personal subscription.

    I have an existing Office 365 Home subscription

    You will need to cancel your existing Office 365 Home subscription if you want to claim the free offer. After cancelation, if your existing Office 365 Home subscription was not set to automatically renew, the free Office 365 Personal subscription will start at the next Skype subscription renewal date.

    You can still get your free subscription. The expiry or renewal date of your non-Skype Office 365 Personal subscription will be extended by 1, 3 or 12 months.

    You will be upgraded to Office 365 Home, but you won’t get the free offer at the next Skype subscription renewal date unless you cancel your Office 365 Home subscription.
