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 June 2018 with new codes)

Army (Updated 6 June 2018): ABAD560AD0 (per comments below, not officially verified yet)

Air Force (Update 6 June 2018, program good until 31 Oct 2019): Try 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. Make sure you use your “@us.af.mil” address.

Navy or Marines (Updated 1 July 2018): Waiting on the Department of the Navy to provide an updated code. Official response as of 6 June 18 from the Department of the Navy below.

DON Microsoft HUP is currently unavailable.  With new DON Microsoft Enterprise Software Licensing Agreement just taking effect on 1 June, there will be a short administrative delay while we process orders and get the program back up and running.  Please check back on our Homeport site below within next few weeks for updates and new codes.  Current codes are invalid.

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 process now.

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 and save them $390 on Microsoft Office!

    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

    So I followed the directions and it said it will send me an email to my military email.

    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.
