Microsoft now offering Office 365, Xbox LIVE, Xbox Music and Skype in a bundle for $199

Microsoft has quietly unveiled a brand new bundle for all of its most popular subscription based services for $199. The bundle includes a years subscription of Xbox LIVE, Xbox Music, Office 365 and Skype Unlimited Minutes. As of right now, the bundle is only available in retail Microsoft Stores across the United States, meaning it isn’t currently available anywhere else.

The bundle is called “Work and Play”, which makes sense as the bundle offers both services for work and play. According to the Work and Play bundle FAQ, the entire package is “a bundle of subscriptions to some of Microsoft’s best apps and services.”

The bundle also appears to be a limited time offer, Starting November 10th 2014 and ending January 5th 2015, or “while supplies last” meaning if you plan on taking advantage of this bundle, you’ll need to do so soon.

The bundle works rather simply. When purchasing the bundle, Microsoft will give you four different codes which you can redeem at each services respectable websites. Each code lasts for 1 year, and Office 365 comes with 1TB unlimited OneDrive storage too. So if you were wondering, no this isn’t one subscription for all four services, it’s four subscriptions under one purchasable bundle.

So what do you think? Is $199 for all four services a good deal? Let us know below!
