Microsoft Drops Office 2007 Ultimate Price for Students to $59.95
If you are in school you no longer need to be satisfied with the student edition of Microsoft Office. Microsoft just dropped the price of the ultimate edition of Microsoft Office 2007 from $679.95 to $59.95 for students. That’s a 91% drop. You need an email address ending in .edu to qualify for the discount. Check it out here.

I wonder if they’ll be offering a similar discount to those outside the US (with non-edu addresses).

@ Alan. This site is all above board https://www.software4students.co.uk/
You don’t need an edu address, just give them the establishment name when buying, school or university.

I think we have the very same offer in Italy since the end of 2007 or so
It really was a pleasant surprise when it came out, I think that Microsoft wanted to “explore” smaller markets such as our prior to introduce it in the US. As for me, I already had one onenote 2007 license and I didn’t need the other office apps that much (openoffice is right for my needs), so I didn’t take advantage of it. But I still regret paying much more for onenote than for the whole package. :|

As far as I was concerned, this 60$ price tag has been active for quite some time now….I had bought a lisence at this price almost a year and a half ago.
Although what might be more appealing to students is that many universities have MSDN alliances which allow the students to get access to Office and Windows, etc. for really cheap prices (i.e. as low as $10).
