Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium Review & Giveaway!!! #HolidayGiftGuide

Microsoft Office Logo

I recently had the chance to upgrade to Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium from Microsoft Office 2010.  It was super easy to perform the download from the internet and it worked well with Windows 8.  It comes will all the 2013 versions of the programs I need like Word, Power Point, Publisher, Excel, Outlook, Access  and One Note.  It also can be run on five separate devices which really comes in handy and makes it a super value when you have as many computer and tablet users as we do in our family. Another neat feature is that you can automatically save to your SkyDrive which gives you security to know that your documents are accessible from any applicable device.  I find it to be a super value especially since one version can be run with five different devices with an annual subscription price of  $99.99 a year. See below for everything you get with your annual subscription of Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium.  You can also get a free 30 day trial!
