If you don't fancy yourself a gambling man and have been putting off picking up a Windows 7 Family Pack, you better get on the ball.
"This product is available for a limited time and will be available to purchase until December 31, or while supplies last," Amazon notes in its Windows 7 Family Pack product page.
Amazon sells the Family Pack for $125, which is $25 less than Microsoft first priced the bundle back in early October. At the time, Microsoft said it would be a limited run, but never specified how long these 3-packs would be available. Once December 31 rolls around, the Family Pack will have been on the market for around 13 weeks. By comparison, Microsoft yanked the 3-pack from store shelves after just six weeks back in 2009.
The Windows 7 Family Pack includes three Upgrade licenses that are meant to be installed on computers running Windows XP or Vista.
Microsoft re-introduced Windows 7 Family Pack in October to coincide with the first anniversary of the launch of the operating system. If you don’t already know, the family pack gives you three upgrade licenses of Windows 7 Home Premium for $149.99, when a single upgrade license alone costs $119.99. But if that sounds like a great deal to you, just wait till we tell you about the limited-time discount Dell is offering on the family pack. The family pack is available for $119.99 – three upgrades for the price of one – from Dell’s online store. However, only when you add Windows 7 Family Pack to your cart does the discount reveal itself.
