Look, we’re not knocking you if you use Google Docs for free instead of paying $99.99 per year for a Microsoft Office 365 subscription. Google Docs is fine. That said, is $8.33 per month really such a steep price to pay for something that’s infinitely more capable and versatile than Google Docs? Not to mention the fact that by using Office instead, you’re not handing over all your personal data to Google. All we’re saying is you should probably think about it, and if you decide to switch there’s a killer deal right now on Amazon that gets you a free $50 Amazon gift card when you get a Microsoft Office 365 subscription!
