Office 365 – Singapore Pricing For Personal and Home

Office 365 Personal / Home

Today I came across the Office 365 Personal / Home plans on the Microsoft website. I’m think this is new. I don’t think Microsoft was offering these plans the last time I checked when they launched the iOS apps.

The price for subscription in Singapore is SGD $13.80 per month for 5 licenses to use Microsoft Office, Skype, Skydrive etc. For a single license, it’s SGD $9.80 per month. There are also options for annual upfront payment for some savings.

The whole feature set can be found on this page.


So here comes the dilemma. I need 2 licenses at home, so I don’t want to pay for 5 :)  I would pay for the 5 licenses, if they price it at $9.90 per month. I will end up using 2 licenses (and wasting 3 others) but it looks like a fairer price to me. :P Unfortunately they don’t have such a plan and $9.90 is actually about the price for a single license. :)

And out of curiosity, I checked out prices else where in the region.

1. Indonesia.

At the current exchange rate, this plan would cost SGD $8.03.

2. Malaysia

And this is the Malaysian price which comes to about SGD $9.65. More expensive than Indonesia but cheaper than Singapore.

3. China

And this is the China pricing. SGD $9.85.

So why are we paying more in Singapore? I can understand that Singapore has a smaller market. And in relative terms, the pricing is probably the cheapest if we consider our average income here. But then… :)

For consolation, the Aussies are paying even more. It’s about SGD $14.00.

Oh, but there’s this offer that I think is absolutely value for money – Office 365 University. SGD $108 for 4 years. Comes with 2 licenses. Hmm..just what I need.
