Office 365 subscribers in the US can now enjoy some free services from Microsoft’s partners (updated)

Office 365 subscriptions already have plenty of value thanks to 1TB of OneDrive storage, free Skype minutes, and more, but it’s about to get better for a few people. Indeed, Microsoft is now promoting that Office 365 Home & Personal subscribers can now enjoy some freebies and benefits from their partners.

(Update: unfortunately, due to the single use tokens attached to these links, they do not work correctly when directly linked from this post, so we’ve removed them)

Currently, on our end, we’re seeing two specific benefits. This includes three months free of Epic! and a complimentary 3-month pass to curated classes from CreativeLive. For those that are unfamiliar, Epic! is an online subscription service that gives millions of families and classrooms instant, unlimited access to thousands of books, videos, and quizzes from leading publishers. CreativeLive, meanwhile, is an online education platform that broadcasts live classes to an international audience.

You can see which benefits are available for you by signing in with the email linked to your Office 365 account and visiting Microsoft’s landing page here. The Epic! offer requires no credit card, and the CreativeLive offer requires signing in with a Microsoft Account. CreativeLive’s offer also includes the CreativeLive Starter Pass, which unlocks 300+ hours of creative classes.

Overall, these partners and their services line up perfectly with the educational and family audience that Microsoft targets with Office 365. Please be aware, though, that this looks to be a limited-time offer only. The Epic! Offer is valid through February 29, 2020. CreativeLive, meanwhile, is valid until February 29, 2020. The offer also appears to be only available in the United States.
