I see one MS office for $29 and the other $154, both for MAC. The descriptions read the same so what is the difference???
Hi Chemobuddies,You are correct, they are the exact same product. The difference is that the $29 Office Standard falls under the donation program Microsoft provides through TechSoup. Whereas the $154 Office Standard is found within the discounted program Microsoft offers through TechSoup.Why two separate programs?Donation and discounted programs from all partners will have allotment restrictions associated with their respective offering through TechSoup.The reasoning behind Microsoft's discounted program is to allow organizations to purchase more software. Also, for when an organization requires a higher quantity provided through Microsoft's donated program offering.Below I will list Microsoft's donation program allotment restrictions. You can review any product's rules, eligibility and restrictions by navigating to the product page of the item you wish to review.
