How to get a hard copy of Windows 8 student prices?

#1SpringerPosted 11/12/2013 6:48:27 PM
Am I going to have to save it to the laptop and burn it to a CD?

I want Windows 8 and my fiance is a college student but she cannot figure out how to buy a hard copy.

Help please?

If she is majoring in business and is in a club of some sort (MIS Club, Marketing, etc.) then usually they provide a whole bunch of Microsoft stuff for free.

It depends on your university as far as I know...at mine you go into a store at the Union and buy it there.

when I bought word from the ms website there was the option to pay an extra couple of dollars and they posted out a disk.

Just walk onto a college campus and go to the college store and try to buy one. If they say they need your student ID, say you left it in the car and leave. Grab a kid and offer him $20 bucks to buy it for you.

At my university, everyone was required to purchase a student software package and they just handed us a bag full of Microsoft softwares. Using our university logins, we can download more software and I imagine it'll be the same or similar for all colleges

I do not have Windows 8, but maybe this is an option
