About Microsoft Office 2010 Product Key Cards
A Product Key Card provides another way to purchase Office with a PC. It includes a 25-character Product Key designed to activate Office software on a preloaded PC.

Product Key Card features

  • Includes 25-character Product Key only, no disc.
  • Designed to activate Office on 1 PC preloaded with Office 2010 suites. For a limited time, customers buying a PC without Office 2010 preloaded, can download the software at www.office.com/productkeycard.
  • Licensed for 1 install on single PC only.
  • License cannot be transferred to another PC.
  • Download backup available at www.office.com/productkeycard.

Recommended for:

  • Customers buying a PC who need Office for new PC only; don't need to upgrade other home PCs.
  • Customers buying a PC who don't require DVD media and/or are okay downloading software (if Office not preloaded).
  • Customers buying a new PC (best experience if customer simply uses the Product Key to activate a PC already preloaded with Office 2010 suites)

For customers who require Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010 with a license for two machines (primary and portable PC), Office may be purchased in a traditional disc version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good - But Bad Pricing Structure! June 16, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Key Card
2010 offers some great improvements over Office 2007: Customizable ribbons and the File tab instead of the silly MS Button (which confused everyone), combined with improved graphics and font options are fantastic!! Office 2010 combines the best of older versions (2003, etc.) with the best of 2007. It would be a real winner except . . . .

Microsoft's decision to throw loyal customers under the bus in favor of "simplified pricing" means upgrade costs are prohibitive! Don't be duped into buying the "activation key" card, thinking of it as an upgrade path. The "Activation Key" version can ONLY be installed on one computer - Ever!! It cannot be transferred if you upgrade or change primary work systems - Doesn't even sound like it be reinstalled if you have to reinstall the OS for some reason. Given increasing competition from online apps and a tight economy -- Microsoft needs to seriously reconsiders its pricing structure!!!

Others are buying Office 2007 - thinking they can simply download and install Office 2010 as an upgrade - but I believe the same restrictions as the "Activation Key" will be in effect.

2.0 out of 5 stars BAD VALUE - KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GETTING July 18, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Key Card
This is like an OEM version - only one installation and one activation. Forget about installing it on more than one computer like the disc/retail version. Also, forget about moving it to another computer and getting it activated again (legally anyway).

I'd stay away from this unless you are absolutely sure that you will only be installing it and activating it on one computer AND that you will never want to move it to another computer in the future. Otherwise, pay a little more and get the non-PKC version that lets you install it on a desktop and notebook computer and move the license to another computer if you ever need or want to.

For a little more money, the non-PKC version is a much better value for many.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good deal compared with the disc version. June 16, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Key Card
For $40 more, you can get 2 licenses to install on 2 different PC's by buying the disc version. However, this is a great productivity package, see my review of it here: Microsoft Office 2010 Home & Business (Disc Version).

This just isn't a good deal if you have a 2nd machine you could use the suite on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whoa whoa whoa!! Before you click 'Add to Cart'! July 22, 2010
By J. Dyer
Platform for Display:PC Key Card
I am writing this after multiple conversations with Microsoft Tech Support.
Bottom line: Although Business Client Manager was included in Office 2007 Small Business, you have to purchase the Standard or Professional Version with multiple licenses before it is part of Outlook 2010.
For small business owners who owned Office 2007 Small Business, this is a major take away. Home and Business is in the same price range as 2007 Small Business was. 'Business' is in the name of both, so I assumed that it would have the same components. Now that it's installed, it would be major upheaval to try and go back to the previous version. We're talking hundreds of dollars more to purchase their minimum.
Nothing in Amazon's description states that BCM is there, nor does it warn you that it has been removed.
I told the Microsoft rep that, although I am not an attorney, the way this has been done might be opening themselves up to a class action lawsuit.
Buyer beware.

5.0 out of 5 stars All of the Office apps you need, for cheap. January 25, 2012
By Bryan P
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Sure, you can pay a bit more and get a box set from a store that might give you 3 licenses, but this was a great, easy way to load Office on my new laptop. Just so you know, you don't have to download the software, you just need the software key. Purchase this item, open up the Office 2010 Test Drive that is preinstalled on your computer, enter the code from here, you're good to go. No installation, no download, no headache. Great way to get the software you need. Kudos to MS and Amazon for making this easy and painless!

Platform for Display:PC Key Card
I wanted office 2010 Professional, but I didn't like the $500 price tag. I read the first review and how easy it was to install.

Then I read the 2nd one (the only other review at that time) about the nightmare and not ever getting the product to download. That bothered me...a lot!

But I looked at who was offering this product...Microsoft...through Amazon. Not a 3rd party company or individual. I've never had anything but good service out of Amazon. Same for MS.

I made up my mind. I bought it.

The product arrived in 2 days as I am a Amazon Prime member. Opening the box I began reading over the instructions to find they were much like the first person's review. I found the website on the card to download Office 2010. Next, I put that into my browser and ...nothing.

OK, I admit that I did get a little itch of nervousness here, but I clicked on the refresh but and reloaded the page and boom...there is was. Entering the key from the card into the required fields was straight forward. Hedging a little, I ordered the backup CD (I'm a little chicken like the other guy said in his review) and at a broadband speed of 2 meg, I had the whole thing done in about 38 minutes. It installed like a champ and I was up and running with 2010.

How much more simple do you need?!!!
