Microsoft 365 Pricing Changes Price Changes to Come March 1, 2022

Microsoft has announced a price increase (the first significant price increase in almost a decade) starting on March 1, 2022. This will impact any renewals or new subscriptions on or after March 1, 2022.

 

Below is a sampling of the new price increases for popular SKUs

 

Product Current Price March 1, 2022
Microsoft 365 Business Basic $5 $6
Microsoft 365 Business Premium $20 $22
Office 365 E1 $8 $10
Office 365 E3 $20 $23
Office 365 E5 $35 $38
Microsoft 365 E3 $32 $36

 

The price increase does not appear to impact the following 4 SKUs

 

Product Price
Microsoft 365 Business Standard $12.50
Microsoft 365 E4 $57
Microsoft 365 F1 $2.25
Microsoft 365 F3 $8


There are no planned price changes for education and consumer products. (At least at this time)

 

One silver lining to this news is Microsoft will be offering unlimited $0 Audio Conferencing dial-in for the following SKUs.

 

Enterpise Small & Medium Business
Microsoft 365 E3 Microsoft 365 Business Basic
Office 365 E3 Microsoft 365 Business Standard
Office 365 E1 Microsoft 365 Business Premium
Microsoft 365 F3  
Microsoft F1  
Office 365  
(E5 suites already have
audio conferencing capabilities)
 

 

Microsoft is quick to note that they are not increasing prices because of the addition of Audio Conferencing. Extending unlimited dial-in access is simply the latest example of “how we deliver new value to support the changing needs of our customers” (quoted directly from Microsoft).
