Microsoft launches Office 365 giveaway with a choice of 'services' to make your life easier

Microsoft is launching Office 365 Home Premium today that lets consumers sign up to use Office software on up to five PCs for $99.99 a year and to celebrate, the company is also giving anyone in the US (18 years and over) a chance to win a year's worth of free services.

The contest is called the Time to 365 Sweepstakes and one grand prize winner will get to pick from one of four real world services that will last a year. One is a personal chef, who will come to the winner's home and cook a meal once a month for a year. Another is a personal driver who will drive the winner 50 miles a month for a year.

The third choice will let someone clean your house once a month for a year. The final selection will give the winner a five hour session with a professional designer and $3,000 to "techorate" your home (we assume this means making the home more tech friendly). All of the prize choices also come with a free year's subscription to Office 365 Home Premium.

The contest ends on February 28th and the winner will be selected in early March.

Pretty great, right?

/saw Microsoft and prize in a story
//knew right away it was US only
///clicked just to see this comment and schadenfreude

Skype minutes are not US only... I got it here in Canada.
Are you using the trial or did you actually purchase a subscription? Skype minutes are only included in the subscription otherwise people would just abuse the free trial for free minutes.

It may be only US (which I am), but I had to activate the Skype minutes from my office account page (office.com and login). Hope this helps
