Here’s another reason to go back to school during the recession: Get cheap software just for being a student. In a previous article I showed you how to get Office 2007 Ultimate for $60 bucks, now Microsoft is making their latest and greatest in operating systems available to students for $29.99. Here’s how:
[step 1] To obtain a free copy of Windows 7, check with your school to see if it participates in the Microsoft Developer Network Academic Alliance (MSDNAA) program.
[step 2] To obtain a copy of Windows 7 for $29.99 you’ll need a school email account with an email address ending in .edu
[step 3] Spend money saved on books & supplies.
