Coupon Activation 

When you purchase Office Pro from our web site your software will automatically activate after you are finished with your purchase.  But when purchasing from a retail store or a reseller you may be given a coupon instead of a serial.

A coupon is not a serial number.  It should not be inserted into the Office Pro Trial field for activation. Doing so will create an "error" message.  Read the below instructions for proper use of the coupon.

A coupon is designed to:
1) Allow you to register your product for customer service support
2) Discount the price so you do not have to pay for your product again while you register

Coupon/ Serial Examples:

Coupon example:  CPN0863451366-1RKQPGRK                 (Coupons always begins with CPN).
Serial example:     PC201-K07B-NRKN-XK5Y-45KT-36P1     (Serials either begin with PC for Windows or MC for Mac).

Coupon Activation instructions:
