If you have a computer, the odds are high that you need a Microsoft Office subscription. After all, it's the simplest and most efficient way to create presentations, type documents, send emails, and host meetings. There's one downside to this kind of access, though: Microsoft Office subscriptions can be so expensive. But what if you could get it for under $36?

That's the price you get during our version of Prime Day: Deal Days, a limited-time sale to get the products you need for the best possible price through October 12. It's the perfect opportunity to buy items for unbelievable discounts — like this Microsoft Office 2021 Professional license for Windows, which usually retails for $349. Thanks to Deal Days, though, it's now available for only $35.99. 

Here's what else to know about Microsoft Office 2021 Professional: It comes with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, OneNote, Publisher, and Access. That's basically every application you need for school or work. However, this version bests previous takes on this classic suite: It has been redesigned with new features to help boost productivity. Plus, it's easier than ever now to customize font, layout, indention size, and other details in the documents. Whether you need to work with chunks of data or design visually pleasing presentations, this is the Microsoft Office subscription you need for your computer.

The critics agree with that assessment: "Microsoft Office is the best set of productivity apps for serious office work," PCMag wrote in its review, noting this version "adds speed and some ingenious convenience features."

Get the Microsoft Office Professional 2021 for Windows for only $35.99. But act fast! This eye-popping price drop will only last throughout Deal Days — aka until 11:59 p.m. on October 12. So, what are you waiting for? Enhance your computer with the best possible tools now.
