Posted on December 23, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Office 365 with 1115 Comments

UPDATE #2: I have emailed the winners and will send the product keys out as the replies come in. I will be out for an hour or two before that happens, however. Holidays, etc. But I will respond as quickly as possible. –Paul

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. I will randomly select the winners and contact them via email later today.  Thanks! —Paul


As you may know, Microsoft’s Chris Capossela has again graciously donated some Microsoft hardware devices and software product keys for us to give away. Here’s the second round, for Office 365 Home product keys.

Please read this carefully.

Today’s giveaway includes 10 Office 365 Home product keys, which I will email to the winners.

The giveaway is open from the time of this article’s publication until 9 am ET tomorrow, Tuesday, December 24.

For a chance to win a product key, please leave one comment to this post. In the past, we asked for everyone to use the same phrase, but that apparently clogs up the spam filter. So, reply with any text of your choosing. But PLEASE leave only one comment per person.

We will have one more giveaway on Friday, December 27, for 6 Surface PCs (two each Surface Pro 7, Surface Pro X, and Surface Laptop 3 15-inch). You can enter each giveaway once and it is technically possible to win more than one giveaway.

When I close the giveaway tomorrow morning, I will use a random number generator to choose the 10 winners. I will then email the winners to make sure their email addresses are correct. And then I will email them the codes and list the Thurrott.com usernames of the winners here.

I will be monitoring our spam filter to make sure that all the comments get through. But if you do experience any technical issues, please do not comment here or email me directly. Instead, please email [email protected].

Thanks, and good luck!



PS: As of this writing, I’ve only heard back from about half of the winners of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate product key giveaway. I will contact the other winners again, and warn them that they are in danger of missing out. If that happens, I will randomly select more winners and try again. Check your email, folks.
