Upgrade Win 7 to Win 8

Not sure if this should be here or in the Win 8 Forum! With my new PC I have been offered an upgrade to Win 8 for 15. I would like to take up this offer but don't want to upgrade yet! I have the promo code to get the special offer but I can't see how to download just the upgrade software and save it to my PC for future use. Any one done this so far?

Generally they will allow you to download a iso file that you can make a dvd with, assuming you have a burner (pretty much everyone does now)
You'll want to purchase the deal through the microsoft site to get it that way.
We generally reccomend doing a clean install with your upgrade copy.
You'll probably find more direct information regarding windows 8 here.

Many thanks will follow your advice. I think I read that you go for the full price item them fill in the Promo code to get the discount! I'll give it a try later, thanks.
