Can I transfer a non-activated software subscription?

If I want to gift the MS Ofice subscription I just bought with my new computer, how do I do that, please?  It's just a card  and I think it's the three year subscription.

Does the card have a Microsoft Office activation code on it or did it come bundled with your computer?

Re: Can I transfer a non-activated software subscription?

Hello SoCal,

 

Welcome to our Community. You ask a terrific question.

 

 

bobberuchi asks the operative question: if your Microsoft Office subscription was activated with your new computer -- this is often the case when you sign on to a new computer for the first time, everything is activated at that time -- you will need to contact Microsoft to transfer ownership of the software license. If you were provided with a product activation key card, your ability to give the subscription as a gift should be as simple as gving your chosen recipient the card. 

 

With that being said, for the best answer to your question I recommend contacting Microsoft Office Support via 800 865 9408. 

 

I hope this helps. Thank you for writing to us.

The receipt has a lot of different charges for it and one of them is calling it a bundle.  I have not installed it and have not scratched off the back of the card, yet.
