We all know that Microsoft and other large corporations charge hefty fees for their software, and we can understand why, while others may disagree it must be said Microsoft Office is an excllent piece of software.
Fortunately for students, and indeed parents and teachers, Software4Students.ie offers discounted products. Student discounts have existed for years but were almost impossible to access. I remember trying in vain to buy Microsoft Frontpage 97 or 2000 from a bricks and mortar vendor back ‘in the day’. They hadn’t a clue how to process a student discount.
Software4Students.ie is a mirror of its UK counterpart Software4Students.co.uk
When I bought Windows Vista from them a couple of years ago they posted a DVD. I now see they have gone ‘download only’ it seems, and the purchases burns and ISO onto a disc.
So what is the function of the company? a needless middleman between Software companies and Purchasers.
I now know of three people who have accidentally bought a wrong version of software (eg. 2010 instead of 2011, or Anti-Virus instead of Internet Security) alas Software4Students.ie has a mandatory tick box waive of refund rights.
Have you had problems?
