Microsoft Offers Office, Xbox, Skype online services bundle for $149

Microsoft logoMicrosoft is offering you an even more massive discount on top of its existing annual service subscription discounts if you're willing to pay for a bundle of several of its top services.

Microsoft is offering...

  • Office 365 Home ($99.00 USD/year)
  • OneDrive (1 TB) (free w/ Office 365 Home)
  • Xbox Live Gold ($59.99 USD/year)
  • Xbox Music Pass ($99.90 USD/year)
  • Skype Unlimited World ($13.99 USD/month; $167.88 USD/year)

... for a mere $149 USD as a lumped services bundle called the Work & Play Bundle.

Separately these services retail for about $426.77 USD/year at the best rates we could find, although students or Microsoft employees may get some of these service for free or at substantial discounts. That's a whopping 65 percent discount, roughly if you do the math.

And the cherry on the sundae, so to speak, is that the 1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage is about to become unlimited storage sometime this next year. And Skype is in the process of adding real time translation for its premium subscribers, yet another goodie. Microsoft actually offered up the bundle in November at a price of $199 USD, but has since shaved 25 percent off its price ($50 USD). It's unclear how long the $50 discount will last. Microsoft's legal language states that the offer is good through at least Jan. 4.

The only bad news is that you have to buy/activate the bundle at a Microsoft store. So unless you live near a Microsoft store or have a friend or family member who lives near one, it may be tough to get access to this deal. Obviously that's not an issue for most Americans given how many Microsoft stores there now are around the country, but the lack of an online sales presence (for now) is an important caveat to mention regarding the bundle.
