You can only purchase one copy per .edu address. With the digital river they also tied it to billing address. I happened to have 2.edu address, me and my daughter are both in school.

So, if you have a friend or classmate in school who is not going to purchase the software just ask them for their information.

I have an .edu address but unfortunately I don't think it would work because it is an @alumni.name.edu address.

If you can't get the discount through microsoft directly which I would try anyways you can always try the digitial river website. They seem less restricitive.

I don't really need it because I already have Technet and am getting a free copy of Ultimate from hosting a Windows 7 launch party, so I have Windows 7 coming out of my ears already.

But just for the hell of it, I tried my alumni edu address at digital river and lo and behold it said I was eligible and they sent me the confirmation email so I could order it. That's pretty amazingly cool, I thought. I would be so stoked if I didn't have Ultimate already.

I also won a Launch Party copy. I got it yesterday from UPS. Installed it last night.

I will say though, the fact that I have been running the RC for such a long time kind of took the pizzazz out if installing my free copy. I installed, booted it up and was like "Wow, this is the same thing I have been running for the last 3 months."

But, I do know own 3 copies of the Retail version. (1) Signature Edition Ultimate and (2) Pro version all for 60 bucks. I have 3 computers at home so I am this works for me.

Hey all.

I don't recall if this is my first post. I've been registered for awhile, also use to frequent the Vista x64 forums a bit. So if this is my first post. Hi!

Anyway wanted to first thank the poster for mentioning the FULL RETAIL for $30 from MS option, as I had no idea about it. I just ordered the Digital River version today and had come to the forums looking for completely different information. Since the Digital River version is an EXE, I was searching for a way to get ahold of a Valid ISO for future clean installs. Figured as long as I have a legit Paid for product key, it would be cool. But then I found this thread and promptly canceled my Digital River Order.

Tried to call MS to reorder through them with DVDs and all but I was on hold so long I just gave up. Tomorrow will be fun to call them an order it, to say the least!

I was hoping Micrsoft had a website version of thier offer for the full version for $30 for Student but it doen't look like they do. It's interesting that they totally support and sanction the DRiver version right on thier own site, yet have an offer of thier own. To the poster regarding the MS Student offer, how did you even find out about it?

Again, thanks for posting this great info. While having the upgrade version really would of been no problem for me, being able to get a full retail for the same price plus minimal extra for the discs was worth the order cancelation and all that.

Thanks.

FYI for anyone who didn't catch this, like me, haha. If you do this deal instead of the digital river, it's EITHER the download or discs, not both. I read the post wrong and thougt it was $35 for the digital copy and disc. It's not. If you did want both, it's like $30 for the DL AND $14.95 more for the disc.

The $5 extra in the OP is if you choose only the disc option and have it mailed. But you won't have a DL copy.
