Microsoft really wants students to use Office 365, it’s “new” subscription cloud-based suite of Office software. To do that, Microsoft is enlisting the help of someone lazy college students can really relate to.
Alongside its new ad campaign, Microsoft is giving away three free months of Office 365 to college students. To make the deal even sweeter, students will also get an extra 20GB of SkyDrive storage for those media heavy group projects. Microsoft will also students an extra three months for sharing the offer on Facebook. That’s a total of six free months of Office 365 for a few minutes of your time.
Of course, Office 365 is already ridiculously cheap for students. Microsoft introduced special pricing last year that reduces the price of Office 365 to $1.67 a month. The reduced cost is available to students for four years, and can be renewed at the same price for another four years if the student in question is still in school after the initial period.
