What will Office 2021 cost and what’s inside?

The best business for Microsoft is still Office 365, because if we assume a household of up to 6 people here, then you pay Microsoft $ 99.99 a year for it. But it’s not like you don’t get anything for it, because the users at least get the premium versions of Excel, Word, Outlook, OneNote, OneDrive, MS Editor, Access, Puplisher and Microsoft Family Safety for PC, Mac and mobile.

In addition, you are always up to date with regard to functionality, and you don’t have to wait 3 years until the next Stand-Alone Office version comes out again. That sounds good at first, of course, and is also an attractive offer for power users who use all of this. But if you approach the matter rationally, the question arises whether you really use all of it. And that is not the case with most users. So what does it mean that you pay for something again that you don’t take advantage of.

Office 2021 appears in 2 versions:

  • Home and Student 2021 for $ 149.99
  • Office Home and Business 2021 for $ 249.99

This is included in the different versions:

  • Home and Student 2021 comes with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Microsoft Teams for PC and Mac.
  • Office Home and Business 2021 offers the large package that also includes Outlook and rights to use for business purposes.

When we saw that, we thought it couldn’t actually be. Outlook, of all things, is not included in Home and Student 2021? But yes, that’s exactly how it is. If you want to write e-mails with the stand-alone version with Outlook, you have to resort to the Home and Business 2021 version for an extra 100 $.

From our point of view, this is on the one hand a clever, but also perfidious marketing calculation in which the customer should of course be pressed to buy the Home and Business 2021 version. You could have done without other features with Home and Student 2021, but please not Outlook. This gutted the whole suite.

But well, it is as it is, and if you do the math and compare the price of $ 249.99 for a one-time purchase for Home and Business 2021 with the subscription price for Office 365 of $ 99.99 per, and you can almost rely on it that the next Office version will probably be released in 3 years, then the customer will save almost $ 50 in total over the 3 years.

By the way:
The prices that are currently available are all given in US dollars, but just assume that the price is transferred 1 to 1 in euros regardless of the euro-dollar exchange rate.

Tip:
As with Office 2019, the street price will certainly drop significantly in the course of the first year, so that the purchase should be interesting later. It is definitely worth waiting a bit and not changing immediately. If you are still working with Office 2016 today, then it makes more sense to switch to Office 2019, as it is now available everywhere at bargain prices.
