Meanwhile, Amazon's price for Microsoft Office 365 Home comes to a little over £56, which is still costlier than Argos's deal and doesn't include McAfee Total Protection. Separately, McAfee Total Protection costs at least £7.99 on Amazon, but that only covers one device – whereas the option from Argos covers six.

Total Protection currently sits in our top 5 of the best antivirus software, with robust antivirus, malware and cryptojacking protection. See our review

Amazon does have the same MS Office and McAfee bundle that Argos is offering, but it is costlier at £69.99, despite being reduced from £126. It includes a two-month subscription to the Telegraph as well.

Argos's deal is especially handy if you're in a multi-member household as Office 365 Home accommodates up to 6 users with access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook. Each user can install the software on up to 6 devices. PC users also get access to Publisher and Access.

The subscription includes 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage so you can collaborate online with colleagues working remotely. As an added bonus, the deal includes 60 minutes of Skype minutes.
