It's easy to switch to the Office 365 subscription that best meets your needs. For example, if you have Office 365 Personal and want to share Office apps and subscription benefits with your household, you can switch to Office 365 Home.
How it works:
You buy the Office 365 subscription that you want to switch to using the same Microsoft account as your current subscription.
The remaining days on your current subscription are automatically added to your new subscription.
See Common questions below for more info.
Here's an example:
Current subscription: You have 6 months left on your Office 365 Personal subscription.
New subscription: You buy a 12-month subscription to Office 365 Home using the same Microsoft account as your Office 365 Personal subscription.
Result: Your subscription is converted to Office 365 Home and will renew in 18 months, not 12.
