Upgrade from Office 2010 to 2013?

    Question

  • I have Microsoft Office Professional 2010 and I'm using a Windows 8 laptop. I'd really like to upgrade to 2013 for a more seamless integration of software and functionality. 

    Is there a free upgrade to office 2013 from office 2010?

  • If you bought Office 2010 on or after October 19th 2012 then you are eligible for a free upgrade.  Otherwise you will have to pay.

  • I would imagine that it would come through Windows Update.

  • This is an example of why I hate these forums.  People are looking for how to do it and this goes nowhere in that direction.

  • What about those of us who bought Office 2010 a week/month after it came out?

    I bought the retail version because I knew I would be upgrading the i7-1366 I was using at the time to an i7-2011. This summer I am going to get a i7-2011-3 so if I had gone the cheaper route originally and gotten an OEM version I would have had to buy Office three times.

    I will never go to a subscription model as that I cannot afford to lose access to my software if cash flow become very tight in the future (if I had been on a subscription model in late 2008 to early 2009 I would have been without software) and given the number of years that I ran Office 2003; had the rental option been mandatory at that time then it would have cost me more. (I skipped Office 2007 because Office 2003 was doing everything I needed at the time.)

    The reason I want to upgrade to Office 2013 is that I have a gut feel that Microsoft will be moving heaven and earth to get everyone on a subscription model. I want to be able to get a version that I can use for the next 7 years (like I did back with Office 2003) without having to worry about using a product that is too outdated.

    Either I get an reasonably priced upgrade to the 2013 retail version that I can load on a new computer as I replace the older slower computer, or I have to seriously start looking at an Office work-alike.

    I think it's all a moot point by now, it's years after the event.
    I'd not expect there to be any kind of discounting still available for Office2013 purchases by now (two years after launch).
    Other than the launch-time discounts, there's no other discounted-upgrade that I'm aware of, and there hasn't been that for many years.
    You can buy one of several non-subscription Office editions (one-time purchase).
