EE Customers Can Now Add Microsoft 365 as Free Perk


EE has added a new benefit to its menu of perks for mobile subscribers: the Microsoft 365 suite of indispensable software for WFHers, freelancers, and students.

The Microsoft 365 Personal software is available as a smart benefit for tablet, laptop, and data SIM (used for mobile broadband) customers on smart plans. Customers who choose Microsoft 365 as one of their free add-ons will benefit from constantly-updated Office apps Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook. They’ll also get access to Skype and 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage—enough space to store up to 500,000 photos and a nearly limitless number of files.

These programmes can be installed on up to five devices simultaneously, including those running Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.

Unlike in the Classic versions of Office software, these programmes will continuously update, so users stay up to date with the latest features and are protected by the highest security standards.

Microsoft 365 Personal usually costs £5.99 per month or £59.99 per year.

Sharon Meadows, Director of Propositions at EE, said: “We continue to look for ways to provide our customers the best experience on our award-winning 4G and 5G network. Microsoft 365 Personal joins a suite of great Smart benefits we offer, and will help boost a customer’s productivity—whether they’re using a tablet, laptop or other connected device on the move.”

Other items on the menu of smart benefits for laptop, tablet and data SIM customers include a Netflix subscription and a BT Sport Ultimate subscription. 

Another option, the Roam Abroad Pass allows customers to use their call, text and data allowance abroad in the USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand for no additional cost. In January 2022, when EE reintroduces roaming charges in 47 European destinations, the Roam Abroad Pass will allow subscribers to dodge roaming fees on the continent too. 

Finally, a Video Data Pass allows customers to stream content on selected video apps, including YouTube, iPlayer, Netflix, BT Sport, BritBox, and others, without using their plan’s data allowance.

Users can typically choose one add-on free of charge and can change them every 30 days. They can manage these selections through the My EE website or site or by texting PICK to 150.
