Important things to know before you switch subscriptions

For a transition from one subscription to another, we recommend that you read carefully through this section and start switching to another type of membership.

What if I have a free offer that came with my computer?

If you have an existing Office 365 Home subscription and redeem the offer for a free year of Office 365 Personal, you’ll be asked if you want to convert your existing subscription to Office 365 Personal or stay with Office 365 Home.

If you’re given the choice, you’ll see a page like this:

Choose to stay with Office 365 Home or switch to an Office 365 Personal subscription.

If you convert your Office 365 Home subscription to Office 365 Personal, you’ll only be able to install Office on 1 PC or Mac and 1 tablet and you won’t be able to share your subscription. If you want to stay with Office 365 Home, you can still use the free offer to extend your current subscription for an additional 9 months. For instructions on how to do this, see Switch from Office 365 Home.
