How to get Microsoft Office 365 Personal Subscription for FREE* ?

Due to my very hectic schedule at work, I find it hard to give time to write new articles for my blog. You will notice that the last time I wrote an article was more than two months ago. That’s quite long compare to my early posts where I can write at least two articles per day. The articles I wrote were also some sort of commercial-type with very minimal personal touches. I admit I was like a copycat to Mashable, Techcrunch, Yugatech and Techpinas and other big technology blogs. Those blogs are  already institutions in tech blogging industry and I am just a nobody so why copy if I can do it on my on way? Now, I want to change the style of writing articles for my blog. I want it to be more personalized and convert it from a "news-like" blog to a "journal-like" blog. To my readers, I hope you'll like this transition and you'll continue to read my articles.

For today’s article, I will give you a peek to my first week experience of using  Windows Mobile 8.1 on my Microsoft Lumia 640.

Here are the reasons why I bought Microsoft Lumia 640:

  1. It comes with a limited FREE 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal which is worth RM219.99 or roughly around 2,600 pesos.
  2. The free 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal has a free 1-Terabyte OneDrive storage and  60-minute free  monthly consumable Skype credits which is valid for one year!
  3. I was using Microsoft Office Professional Plus trial version for almost 90 days already and the trial version has just expired this June. While this Microsoft Lumia 640 and 640XL promo will only last until June 30th, 2015, buying this phone within this month is the perfect timing! 
  4. Microsoft Windows 10 will be released as a free upgrade to existing Winodws 7 and 8.1 users so having a windows smartphone extends productivity. Thanks to Windows 10 continuum!
Here's how I got my FREE Office 365 Personal subscription:


  1. I downloaded an app from Windows Store called Office 365 Gift.
  2. I claimed my Free 1-year Office 365 Personal subscription by tapping the "Continue" button.
  3. I entered my valid email address and received the instruction on how to install and activate  Microsoft Office 2013 to my computer using the 25-letter product code that comes with the instruction email sent by Microsoft.
Here is the result:

A fully activated Microsoft Office 365, 1 TB OneDrive storage and 60 monthly minutes of Skype credits for one year!







*It is actually not FREE to get Microsoft Office 365 Personal Subscription. As part of Microsoft Lumia 640 / 640XL promo, Microsoft Office 365 Personal Subscription is FREE for a limited time only and you will only get the free offer if you buy any of the two newest Microsoft smartphones before June 30th 2015!  For me, this is the safest way of getting Microsoft Office subscription without exposing your credit/debit card information online.Hurry! You still have three days to try it!

*I do apologize for a quite misleading title. This is just a technique to drive more traffic to my blog! I know you understand, right? [*wink]
