    Hello. I bought the academic version of Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac few years ago. At that time, I got a coupon to get an upgrade to Office: Mac 2008 with Expression Media at a very low cost (around US$20 as far as I remember). Anybody knows if I can upgrade to Office 2011 for Mac at a low cost again? I cannot find such information on Microsoft website. I emailed them but did not get concrete answers. I hope we don't need to pay for the full version. Thanks.

    I doubt it. You probably got that deal last time due the fact that you purchased 2004 close to the release of 2008.

    Microsoft isn't known for their generous upgrade deals.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yes. It was close to the release date. So, the chance of paying the full price is over 99%?

    If you buy Office 2008 now, you get 2011 for free. Other than that, you're paying.

    There's an academic version of Office 2011 for $100. The Home and Student version is $120 (no Outlook), and the Home and Business one is $200.

    There are no upgrade options for Office 2010.
