Is the free Office 365 worth it? On my screen right now is Tiger Electronics’s ad for a “Double Power 7” Tablet – Intel® Quad Core 1.3GHz (Max Speed 1.83GHz), 32GB Storage, 1024×600, Dual Cameras, Bluetooth 4.0 Keyboard, Windows 8.1/ Free Windows 10 upgrade and McAfee 2016 Multi-Access 1 U” and, yes, Office 365. Price? $19.99 after rebates.
The $19.95 deal expires tomorrow, Nov. 11, based on one of the rebate dates, so hurry if you’re interested. Just keep in mind that most of the reviewers hated the machine, and worse, you’re agreeing to “Activate and Install McAfee Multi Access, and to enroll in the Auto Renewal feature. You may opt out of the Auto Renewal any time after the 10th month of your 1 year subscription term.” Better have a good to-do arrangement! Then again, you can go for a $29.99 deal without the McAfee complication.
At any rate, remember that Office 365 Personal normally costs $70 a year.
