Q:   Amazon has on sale Microsoft Office 2021 for $39.99. Should I buy it? I know I have an annual subscription that is like 60 bucks per year.  Dave
A: I would be cautious about buying these deep-discount deals. Also, the single-install version only works on one device. I suggest an Office 365 subscription. It can be installed on up to five computers on the same Microsoft account. The best deal is the Office 365 Family plan. It gives you licenses for up to six different accounts, each with the ability to install on mutable devices. The Costco deal gives you the Family plan for $15 months at the yearly price.
