    OK I am eligible - but they only offer Office 365 in UK

    USA gets the option of Pro Plus - which is the whole caboodle installed locally rather than on-line
    Typical !!

    Have you tried making the purchase of Office 2019 on the US Microsoft HUP website?
    The company I'm employed by is part of the HUP and I can opt to purchase either from the UK or USA websites.

    Once you've verified your work email address and signed in you'll see Office 365 subs at the top, but in the 'other office products' down at the bottom you should still be able to buy Office Pro Plus - it's quoting me £18.23.

    "We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found.
    The URL may be misspelled or the page you're looking for is no longer available."


    I have now had it confirmed by MS - Office 2019 Pro Plus is not available in the UK under HUP - They have another option that costs £55 - which is over 5 times what a US resident pays !

    Not sure what the problem is. I have Office 365 and it is installed locally and also has Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, Publisher, Outlook and may be others I've missed. What aren't you getting?

    A Home Use Programme discount on this product is only available if your employer’s Home Use Programme administrator has selected you for this product-specific discount.
    So maybe your employer has somehow opted out of providing Office 2019. It's allowed me to add it to my shopping cart so maybe my employer has different settings.
