Now this is clever marketing on Microsoft’s part. Earlier today, Microsoft unveiled Office for iPad, allowing iPad owners view and present their Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents for free. However, if you want to edit your documents, you are required to have an Office 365 subscription.
As part of a special promotion that begins Friday, March 28th and ends March 30th, iPad owners can get Office 365 free for one year if they take their device into a Microsoft Store. The first 50 people to bring their iPad into a Microsoft Store on Friday the 28th will qualify for the promotion.
The subscription runs for $99 for the entire year, so this promotion is a great bargain! If you want to harness the full power of Office on your iPad and you currently do not have an Office 365 subscription, head to your local Microsoft Store on the 28th to snag this offer.Further reading: iPad, Microsoft, Office 365
