You can get Windows 8 Pro just for USD $14.99. This is the latest loophole that we unearthed today. Absolutely anyone can get the promo-code to updgrade to Windows 8 Pro.
Let’s get into the inside story before jumping to loophole to get in-depth understanding. Windows 8 Pro is currently available at a retail price of USD $169.99. As per Microsoft’s offer for existing users – till the end of January 2013, customers using Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 can upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for just USD $39.99. Also, Windows 7 computers purchased between June 2, 2012 to January 31, 2013 can be upgraded to Windows 8 Pro at just USD $14.99.
Now let’s come to the loophole. The USD $14.99 offer can be availed at Windows Upgrade Offer website. The loophole is that the website is just asking for basic information. It is not even asking for your Windows 7 Key. So, anyone literally can avail the offer by just putting any fake information in the online form.
Here are the screenshots of my activity on the upgrade offer website :
While filling the online form just make sure you enter purchase date of anything falling between June 2, 2012 to January 31, 2013.
On submitting the above form, I was readily given a Registration ID saying successful registration.
Afterwards, I was immediately mailed (on the email that i supplied) the promo code to avail the offer.
I am not sure, for how long this loophole is going to work. But, for now it’s working.
