A Microsoft student promotion that slashes 91% off a copy of Office Ultimate applies to anyone with a .edu email address. Microsoft Office Ultimate, which retails for $680, is available to students for only $60 until May 16th. But if you can snag a .edu address, you too can cash in on the deal—all you have to do is get yourself an alumni email address at your alma mater. The promotion’s web site says you have to prove you’re enrolled in coursework, but the New York Times reports that a senior VP at Microsoft confirmed all you need is an .edu email address.
UPDATE: Microsoft says you have to carry at least a half-credit course load to get the deal. Microsoft’s site says you have to pay the full price if they find out you are not. You can get the full details from Microsoft’s site HERE.
