Tips and tricks for getting Windows 8 Pro for up to 70% cheaper

Well Windows 8 is here to both popular and negative reviews. I know many people will have difficulty adapting to the changes in the Windows 8, but since I use multiple operating systems I am pretty comfortable  with learning new systems. Windows 8 was way easier to adapt to from Windows 7 than Unity was to from Gnome.

This post is going to be about how to currently (and most of these offers will be for a limited time only) purchase Windows 8 for as cheap as possible.

The first cost saving advice I can offer you is to get the Windows 8 Pro upgrade. Do not be concerned if you want to do a full format and reload of the operating system. The upgrade version allows you to create a bootable USB flash disk or a bootable DVD that allows you to format and load from scratch.

The one requirement the Windows 8 Pro upgrade has is that you have to have a legal copy of a previous version of Windows from Windows XP (SP3) upwards. For most of us this will not be a problem.

However, it is only recently become affordable for more than just the top 10% of income earners. So I know more than just a few of you have illegal copies of previous versions of Microsoft Windows. Well download a legal copy of the trial version of Microsoft Windows 7 here:

Install it for free and then you will be able to buy your copy of Windows 8 Pro cheaper without having to have previously purchased a license. In my case I had been testing the Windows 8 Consumer Preview for several months and was able to purchase the upgrade with that free key I got from Microsoft.

Once you are ready to purchase the Windows 8 Pro upgrade you can click on this link and purchased this limited time offer from Microsoft to purchase Windows 8 Pro for R299:

Groupon will be selling it on a special price for R600 and Incredible Connection will be selling it for around R700.

For those of you that have bought a new PC with Windows 7 between 2 June 2012 and 31 January 2013 can also register for Microsoft’s special upgrade offer for $14.99. To get this amazing cheap offer go to this Microsoft website:

Currently there is a trick that more tech savvy users can do to cash in on this offer $15 without owning a legal copy of Windows 7 Pro from that time period. Please see this forum post on MyBroadBand on how to purchase Windows 8 Pro for the lowest price:!?p=9198752&viewfull=1#post9198752

One more special I think you should know about is the limited time offer for the Windows Media Center application. Currently it is offered for free here:

Microsoft will soon be charging for this application so get it while its free.
