I just purchased a Surface Pro 3 and would like to add Microsoft Office software on to it; but, I do not know the difference between the download version and the product key card version.
Can someone please enlighten me?

Thanks AW Brown for the explanation...
Which is better to buy?
It's been so long since I purchased software....don't you receive a disk anymore?
If I don't use the download/product key.....Can I sell it?
What is the difference between Office 365 and Office Home & Business and Office Home & Student?

If you happen to be employed in an office that has a number of licenses for MS Office.
Then before you buy Office at a store do a google search for
Microsoft HUP. stands for Home Use Program.
You can get the entire suite of Office 2013 for $9.95 via digital download and you can install it on up to 2 machines.
Just follow the prompts. You will need to use your work email. If you qualify then you can purchase it and you will receive an emial that will have a link to down load it at.
You will want to forward your work email to your home email an only click the link when you open the email on the computer you want to install it on.

Here's my dilemma.....
I purchased a Surface Pro 3 and wanted to get Office on it; so, I purchased the download version of Office 365 from another web-site/store. I did not know what I was purchasing. I thought I was buying the CD to download on to my laptop and could also use the product key to download it on to the Surface Pro 3. I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to computers. It is when I received the email with the download instructions that I contacted the store and then was told what I had ordered and that I could not return it.
It turns out that I made a mistake. I did not want a subscription for Office 365 and it turns out that I ordered it for 5 downloads..... So.....I am trying to figure out what to do at this point. I made a very costly mistake that I cannot afford.....
Thanks for any advise that anyone can give me.
