Pay Less than $10 to Use Microsoft Products at Home

Microsoft Home Use Program

All employees can purchase software for Windows, Mac or both through the Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP). Why pay hundreds of dollars for computer products when you are eligible to participate in Microsoft’s Software Assurance Home Use Program. This program enables you to get a licensed copy of most Microsoft® Office desktop PC applications to install and use on your home computer.

According to Service Delivery Manager Amy Alexander (Technology Services), employees who use qualifying applications here at work (e.g. Office Enterprise, Word, PowerPoint, etc.) are eligible to buy a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program (HUP) software to install and use on a home computer. You can use the HUP software as long as you work for the City of Plano.

Order full-versions of software products for $9.95 each:

  • Office Professional Plus 2016 (estimated value $399.99)
  • Office Home and Business 2016 for Mac (estimated value $299.99)
  • Project Professional 2016 (estimated value $940)
  • Visio Professional 2016 (estimated value $480)

Note: Some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order.

  • Go to
  • Pick United States in the first box. Type your work email address in the second box. Click “submit.”
  • A Microsoft HUP “confirmation” email appears in your Inbox, click the yellow box.
  • The HUP webpage opens to show the products available for purchase.

As a Team Plano member, this is a great perk to take advantage of and save tons of money in the process. Send an email if you have trouble accessing the HUP site.
