A store nearby is discounting all the software, including Office 365 1year subscription boxes, so I was thinking about buying a few boxes to be set for the next years because I hate both paying the full online price set by Microsoft (twice as much!) and having to go buying the box to reactivate it every damn year (the store actually isn't quite exactly "nearby"). Can anybody confirm whether or not I can activate more than one year subscription at once on my account and make my lifelong dream of saving a few miserable cents every month come true?

I can assure you that redeeming more keys will just extend your time.
Here's the process:
- Go to Office.com/setup and enter your key.
- You'll be prompted to sign in -- sign into the same Microsoft account that already has the Office subscription on it.
- You'll be asked to confirm your country/language. As this is a time extension (and not a new subscription), you won't be able to modify your country.
- Finally, you'll be taken to your account page (Office.com/MyAccount). On this page, under the heading of "RENEWAL INFORMATION", you'll see your new expiry date, which will have been extended by one year.
