Last year, Microsoft bundled a number of their services, namely Office 365 Home, Skype Unlimited World, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Music Pass, all up in one neat little Work and Play Bundle. That promotion ended, but the company has brought it back for a new price of $149 (last year the price was $199, although it was dropped to $149 for a time). If you’re in the US, you can purchase it through Microsoft’s Online stores only, at a savings of up to $250 over separate purchase of each service.
If you already have one or more of the services, you can still take advantage of the deal, too. Your subscription(s) will be extended 1 year past their current expiration date, so this is a good way to get a good deal on extending the services you use and trying out some new ones, all at the same time, for a significant savings.Microsoft, Services, Work and Play Bundle
