Do you have a spare Office 2013 code?

My kids just got their first laptops (after saving for months!)..they have Microsoft Office 2013 on them, we have a code for 2010..but not 2013.  It is so expensive!  So I was wondering if anyone has an extra code they are willing to share?  I believe you can use it on a certain number of PCs?

Any other advice?

Oh sweety, I don't have or use Microsoft Office. Hopefully someone will have what you need.

I'm sorry! I wish I did. We pay the $6.99 or whatever it is a month. Good luck though! I hope you find one.

I figured out it seems you can only get it by subscription now! I don't think that's right. But I think we found our code for office 2010...so maybe we can download that from the website (they don't let you download 2007, we tried tht last night!). It stinks that they want us to pay a subscription to get the newest version rather than paying one time like it used to be!

Do you use something else for typing documents and stuff? It's just what I've used for so long I didn't even look into anything else.

Lol .. Your probably not going to believe me, but we use the computer notepad and input what we need. Or I use my smartphone and send it to the printer.

Someone else told me this today!  I hadn't even thought of that!

Does it just save everything on google or does it take up space on your computer as well?

You can also get OpenOffice for free which is like Microsoft office. However the nice thing about Google drive is you can access it anywhere.

I LOVE the Drive.... we use it now for everything instead of the Office Suite, even though it's still on our devices. I use Google Docs to "share" assignments with my daughter who is visiting with my parents right now. I write up the assignnment, share it with her, giver her edit privledges and we can chat with each other in a Facetime conversation while she works on her assignment. I can see what see is typing while she is doing it and help her if she needs it... it is SO cool for distance learning. My kids also love it because they can use it wherever they are, if they need to access something or print out a paper they wrote it's right there on their Drive. I love love loveit!
