Check out this month's top recommended cards WITH NO ANNUAL FEES for US military.
I recommend Personal Capital. It's my favorite free net worth tracking tool.

Microsoft offers an amazing military discount on their Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016. Normally, the package costs $399! However, through the Microsoft Home Use Program, active military servicemembers can get the entire Microsoft Office 2016 suite for just $9.95. That’s a 97% discount!

The suite comes with the entire Office collection, not just the basics. You get the full versions of Outlook, Publisher, Access, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote as well as OneDrive storage. Office Professional Plus 2016 is compatible with Windows 10, 8/8.1 and 7.

Microsoft also offers a 10% discount to military servicemembers and their families every day. Click here if you want this 10% off Microsoft military discount.

How To Get The Microsoft Office Military Discount

Here is the simple 6 step process to get Microsoft Office 2016 for less than $10:

  1. Click here to purchase Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 with the military discount. It will take you to a page that looks like this:

military-discount-microsoft-office

2. Enter your military email address. NOT your personal email! For example, @mail.mil, @us.af.mil, @usmc.mil, @navy.mil, @us.army.mil, or your deployed email address.

3. Try just using your email address without a program code. If that doesn’t work, then enter the Microsoft Office military discount program code below, based on your branch of service:

(Updated September 2018 with new codes for Microsoft Home Use Program)

Army (Updated 6 June 2018): ABAD560AD0

Air Force (Update 6 June 2018, program good until 31 Oct 2019): 4A82EF7B8F or click the link that says “I do not know my program code.” You will receive an email with additional details to complete the registration. Use your “@us.af.mil” address, if you have one.

Navy (Updated 22 July 2018): Navy: DAB143CCC2; USMC: 3BA9CE3008; ONE-NET: DAB143CCC2 If you have a @navy.mil email: DAB143CCC2. @usmc.mil address use 3BA9CE3008. If you have @pacom.mil, @fe.navy.mil, @eu.navy.mil, and @me.navy.mil: DAB143CCC2. If you have a @ship.navy.mil address, you another address, as there are no provisions at this time for these email addresses.

Marines (Updated 18 August 2018): USMC: 3BA9CE3008; If you have a @usmc.mil address use 3BA9CE3008. If you have @pacom.mil, @fe.navy.mil, @eu.navy.mil, and @me.navy.mil: DAB143CCC2. If you have a @ship.navy.mil address, use another address, as there are no provisions at this time for @ship.navy.mil.

US Coast Guard (Updated 21 August 2018): B7F5409CA4 or 445DF3F5E5, based on comments below.

TSA-DHS  (Updated 18 August 2018): D47F29C596, based on John’s helpful comment below.

4. Check your military email address for an email from Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP). Forward this email to your personal email address so you can do the rest from home.

5. Click the link inside the email that you forwarded to your personal email from your military email. This will bring you to the checkout page. Select the version of Microsoft Office you would like to purchase for $9.95 and checkout.

6. Download and install! The whole process shouldn’t take longer than 5 minutes from start to finish, plus however long it takes to download and install.

Click here or the picture to start your Microsoft HUP purchase now. If you’re having problems with the Microsoft HUP military program, see below the picture for some great tips from one of the commenters:

Microsoft Military HUP Code Not Working

A BIG thank you to John’s extremely helpful comment below. He covered exactly what to do if the Microsoft Home Use Program code you were provided by your military branch isn’t working. I’ll just copy and paste because he explains it all so clearly on what to do if your Microsoft Office military HUP code doesn’t work:

Some service branches have multiple program codes as you may have noticed with the Coast Guard one.  Also some joint commands like SOCOM (@socom.mil) might or might not work.  For members of those commands joint commands – think the military term is purple — use your service branch’s e-mail address if the joint command one does not work i.e. Army (@mail.mil), Navy (@navy.mil), Marines (@usmc.mil), Air Force (@us.af.mil).

Best advice for folks who work in government (state or local) or the military is to contact Microsoft Technical Support if the program codes don’t work for you. The agents that you can get in touch with can validate for you the work e-mail address and if not working they will help you out to get the Office products purchased and installed FOR FREE! They can figure out which program code to use actually.

Option 1:
Phone: 1-800-936-5700 or 1-800-642-7676 (Microsoft Technical Support for North America)

NOTE: You first have to answer a robot some basic questions and then you get a live person.  To shortcut the process say this: “I have a problem with the Office Professional Plus 2016 product from the Home Use Program.  I can’t purchase Office.” and in a perfect world you usually get a live person after that.  Long wait time though since there are only a small number of people that support these kinds of products.

Option 2:
Contact chat support through this link.

NOTE: Chat requires a Microsoft Account. Click the link above and in that link click the box that says “Get Started” and you then first have to answer a robot a series of questions and use the same spiel as when contacting Microsoft by phone.  After that you should get a chat link, which then requires the Microsoft Account.  If you don’t have one, you have to create one. Check this link on how to create a Microsoft Account.

Once you get a real person via phone or chat, please be very specific and patient with them.  Say you’re buying Office through the Home Use Program and provide your government or military e-mail address and they can take it from there.  If the program code does not work tell the technician right away.

THANK YOU JOHN! This should help a LOT of people out.

This is a great deal for back to school savings. If you are taking classes or getting your degree, or your kids need Microsoft Office for school, you can use your military HUP program to get the program for almost free.

Please let me know in the comments if the Microsoft Office military discount worked for you, what your branch is, and what code worked or if you didn’t use a code.

If you found this useful, please share it with your military friends and family on Facebook, email, or wherever and save them $390 on Microsoft Office!

Another great military discount: no annual fee credit cards from American Express (including the $550/year Platinum).

    Hey Spencer, first off thanks for putting the time in to run this site, I’ve read every article. Have you heard of the program codes not working for anyone? I’ve tried both Navy program codes but I receive an error reading “If you still have problems, please contact your benefit administrator to learn if you are eligible and to retrieve your program code.” Active duty Navy if it helps.

    Thanks, TJ

      thanks for all the hard work Spencer. does anyone know how to remedy an oversight, I accidentally put in my code for visio and project manager package instead of the Microsoft home and student. I caught myself before purchasing it and went back and applied for the home and student but now the new link also takes me to visio and project manager program. I tried a different code as well and it still gives me a link to purchase visio or project manager. any help will be awesome.

    Although, I probably know the answer to my question. I was wondering why retired or disabled or retired disabled veterans are not offered a similar military discount for Office products.

      The discount isnt to help the service member, its to help the units. The benefit is for AD because the various branches use MS Office products in day to day activities. To facilitate the proficiency of the AD members in MS Office suite, they came up with this program get more members using it at home. This would in turn improve their usage at work, theoretically. Like many benefits, some are limited to time of service, and more recent veterans/retirees who utilized this benefit before separating should still benefit, but wont be able to acquire any new licenses.

      I actually got the “site blocked” problem from one of the links on this page (I don’t remember which). The system has been acting up tonight, so it may have been that, although the rest of the time, I just couldn’t access sites from my regular shortcuts.
      I just used a different HUP link from the google search, and it worked using the Air Force code.

      Thank you very much for this article. Now to forward the email and go home.

      I do not think they have a similar program because it is offered under the Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP). I assume this discount is offered because the DOD buys so many Microsoft licenses for Office.

    All, I have to squelch my initial glee; like a big dope I mistakenly purchased Project 16 instead of Office 16.
    For my Navy home-port site only Project and Visio are available through the HUP, even though there is an announcement banner for Office….go figure. So, while the Navy code works it appears the HUP offer is presently half-baked and missing Office 16.
    Still, it’s a good deal for both, but I really hope the Navy didn’t make a mistake with the new contract, accidentally leaving Office off the buy…..

    Trying DAB143CCC2 with my navy.mil account and I’m only seeing Visio and Project as options….. NOT office 2016. Any thoughts?

    Jason,
    Correct! As of late 20JUL18 the Navy offer is only for Project and Visio.
    I contacted the Navy CIO and they said it’s some glitch that Microsoft is aware of and is working on.
    It doesn’t make much sense to me, as the lead banner at the M/S HUP site claims what a great deal ($19.95) for both the download and CD backup.

    They are right; this is a great deal, one we would all like to participate in, eh?
    Navy users just have to keep checking……

    Only real problem is you can only use Office on one machine and you can’t purchase a second copy. Haven’t found a way yet to uninstall on one computer and reinstall on another. I’m sure it’s out there somewhere.

      You can call Microsoft support at 1-800-936-5700 (North America) or contact chat support at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/contactus/ (Note: You’ll chat with a robot first and then after a few answers your get a live person). FYI. They assist with re-installation issues for free.

      If you want to do it yourself just make sure the computer that had Office before is not online anymore or dead and then install Office on the new computer you want it on using the product key and download link you got when you first purchase Office.

      If you lost access to the key and download link your last hope is to contact Microsoft. Provide them you .gov or .mil e-mail address, your complete name and program code and they’ll get you the key and download link. They will support you for free.

        John – your awesome comment about what to do if codes aren’t working got deleted accidently. Could you post it again? Much obliged! I want to add it to the post to help others.

          Sure. No problem. If I could ask for a small favor though I need to correct that post you published above here’s the corrected version:

          Some service branches have multiple program codes as you may have noticed with the Coast Guard one. Also some joint commands like SOCOM (@socom.mil) might or might not work. For members of those commands joint commands – think the military term is purple — use your service branch’s e-mail address if the joint command one does not work i.e. Army (@mail.mil), Navy (@navy.mil), Marines (@usmc.mil), Air Force (@us.af.mil).

          Best advice for folks who work in government (state or local) or the military is to contact Microsoft Technical Support if the program codes don’t work for you. The agents that you can get in touch with can validate for you the work e-mail address and if not working they will help you out to get the Office products purchased and installed FOR FREE! They can figure out which program code to use actually.

          Option 1:
          Phone: 1-800-936-5700 or 1-800-642-7676 (Microsoft Technical Support for North America)

          NOTE: You first have to answer a robot some basic questions and then you get a live person. To shortcut the process say this: “I have a problem with the Office Professional Plus 2016 product from the Home Use Program. I can’t purchase Office.” and in a perfect world you usually get a live person after that. Long wait time though since there are only a small number of people that support these kinds of products.

          Option 2:
          Contact chat support through this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/contactus/

          NOTE: Chat requires a Microsoft Account. Click the link above and in that link click the box that says “Get Started” and you then first have to answer a robot a series of questions and use the same spiel as when contacting Microsoft by phone. After that you should get a chat link, which then requires the Microsoft Account. If you don’t have one, you have to create one. Check this link on how to create a Microsoft Account: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026324/microsoft-account-sign-up-for-a-microsoft-account

          Once you get a real person via phone or chat, please be very specific and patient with them. Say you’re buying Office through the Home Use Program and provide your government or military e-mail address and they can take it from there. If the program code does not work tell the technician right away.

    I keep entering the Air Force program code and it says Congratulations your email will be sent, but I have yet to receive an email.

    Is anyone having this problem or is that the right program code for the Air Force

      Use the instructions above to contact Microsoft. They can usually help you out. Just be patient though since the support team for this is not as big as you might think.

    In my experience (Navy) the HUP reply is sent to your .mil email; from there you complete the transaction and forward the down-stream link to your personal email, to then load to your home CPU.
    Also, check your .mil SPAM folder; it “may” have gone there.
