Most retailers have these kind of deals, even unrelated to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. For instance, many computer sellers offer $20 off Office 365 Personal with a new PC purchase. When buying your new PC, check on the seller’s website whether you are eligible for Office discounts.

About Microsoft Office Editions Offered on Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2016
Traditionally, the most popular Microsoft Office Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are related to the 365 Personal package. A purchased subscription which normally costs $69.99 per year includes one installation on a PC or Mac computer, on a tablet including iPad, Android, or Windows, and on one smartphone device. The package includes full versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Access, and Publisher. In addition, you get 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage space and 60 monthly Skype minutes.
Microsoft Office 365 Home for its $99.99 per year regular price includes the same programs and services, but you can install it on more computers. The 365 Home allows installation on five PCs or Macs, five tablets, and five phones. Also, you receive 1TB OneDrive and 60 monthly Skype minutes for up to five users.
As for Office Home & Student 2016, this suite is offered as a traditional one-time-purchase software, as opposed to Office 365 sold as a subscription service with 1-month or 1-year renewals. Although paying only one time might seem a better option, the 365 option has its advantages. Home and Student 2016, regularly priced at $149.99, lacks Outlook, Access, and Publisher applications, as well as 1TB OneDrive and Skype time. You can install it only on one laptop, tablet or other PC. Furthermore, active Office 365 subscribers get the future versions of the productivity suite automatically and free of charge, while Home and Student 2016 users are stuck with their purchased edition.
