'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Save big on this lifetime Microsoft Office Pro 2021 and Windows 11 Pro bundle.

It doesn't matter if you're upgrading to a new laptop or just upgrading your existing system -- access to Microsoft Office and Windows is a necessity for getting things done on your computer these days. And right now, you can buy a bundled lifetime license to Microsoft Office Pro 2021 and Windows 11 Pro from Stack Social for $70 -- that's over 80% off. 

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2021 includes all of the classic and essential Microsoft offerings, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, Access, and Teams. If you don't need all the bells and whistles, check out this deal for Microsoft Office 2019, which offers all the same features except for Teams. 

Microsoft Windows 11 Pro is an operating system perfect for working professionals or at-home users. Get an easy-to-navigate interface, biometrics login, Smart App Control, Windows Studio Effects, DirectX 12 Ultimate, and top features like snap layouts, desktops, seamless redocking, improved voice typing, and a powerful search experience. You'll also get access to Microsoft Copilot, an AI platform designed to upgrade your workflow experience.

There's one caveat, though. While Stack Social is an authorized Microsoft partner and offers "lifetime" access to Office, it is possible that Microsoft could end the license. But the site has been running these Microsoft deals for years now, and ZDNET's Alison DeNisco Rayome can personally vouch for them -- she purchased an Office license from Stack Social about two years ago, and it's still working on her personal MacBook today. 

Also: Microsoft quietly upgraded Copilot's free version to GPT-4 

While this bundle deal offers a lot, you won't get the benefits of the latest Microsoft Office 365 subscription, so if you're looking for Microsoft 365, this deal may not be for you (though Stack Social does have a discount on Office 365, too.) Windows users must update their OS to Windows 10 or 11 to access these software deals. 

Get your lifetime license bundles for Microsoft Office Pro 2021 and Windows 11 Pro right now.
