Microsoft Singapore is giving a 43 per cent discount on Office 2007 Home and Student edition so you can now get it for $143. The software giant issued a press release on this hailing it as a special 43rd National Day discount for Singapore.
But I checked online and Microsoft’s website shows it is going for US$109. So is there really a special discount for Singapore’s birthday? Or is it just a National Day marketing gimmick to commemorate worldwide pric cuts on MS Office?
