Upgrading to Windows 8 Pro at low cost by providing fake information may be unethical and illegal. The method discussed here is strictly for educational and informational purpose. Use this sensitive information at your own risk.

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 :
