WPS Office: The Microsoft Office Alternative
Cheap Is The New Classy

I don’t have Microsoft Office on my computer. Why? Well, it’s expensive. So, I have just never loaded it. And sometimes that is a problem. Some PR companies I work with send me files I can’t open so I have to ask them to send them in a different format. And that is a pain for both of us. So, when I was offered the chance to try out the Microsoft Office Alternative, WPS Office, I have to admit I was pretty happy about it.

Here is an example of how WPS Office has helped me already. I am headed out this week on a press trip {yay!} and I needed to sign a form. Well, I couldn’t open it. So, I downloaded WPS Office to my computer. It literally took minutes and I was immediately able to open the document. I was also able to edit it, sign it and send it back to the representative.

WPS Office looks so familiar and like Microsoft Office that I was able to immediately use it without having to learn a new product. I love that. I am not all that techy and I keep gadgets and programs for years just because I don’t want to learn something new. I think other people who are set in their ways like me will take quickly to WPS Office. Easy peasy.

WPS Office can open all kinds of documents including DOC and PDF files, the ones I deal with mostly. It is a full office suite software and comes complete with several useful programs including Writer, Spreadsheets, Presentations and the ability to read PDF files. It is also endorsed by CNET and PCWorld.

    I like that they have templates to help you create fancy presentations and advanced spreadsheets. They also offer more than 230 fonts to help you really personalize it.

  2. Michelle Castagne says

    This is the best Microsoft alternative. It’s 100% compatible with Google docs.

  3. Robin Masshole Mommy says

    This is an awesome giveaway! My MS Office subscription just ended, so I am in need of something!

  4. WPS sounds like a great suite. What I find impressive is that you can do pretty much all of the advanced things you can with Office. Most free suites are very bare bones.

  5. Sheila Vives says

    I learned it has Multi-Document Tabbing (easy switching), which I really need. Thank you for the review, or I would not have learned about this.

  6. It is nice that there is an alternative to Microsoft Office! It sounds like a great program.

  7. I should definitely try this out. It sounds great and the price is super affordable. I may have to check out the trial.

  8. Ohh I am definitely going to have to check this out – I am all for a cheaper alternative that does just the job! x

  9. This sounds like a great alternative to Microsoft Office – my son is always struggling with attachments his teachers send since his computer is new and we havn’t put office on it yet so we’ll have to check this out!

  10. I am going to show this to my husband. This is going to be a great thing to win!

  11. How cool is this? I don’t think I would be able to live without Microsoft Office but it is nice to know that there is an alternative out there for people that don’t have it. I may have to check this out for one of my devices and see if I can get it to work. Thank you for sharing 😉

  12. Oh this sounds great! I haven’t a clue what program we have or dont have but this sounds like a really great option! The price is really calling my name!

  13. I really like the Complete Office Suite.

  14. I need this in my life! I don’t have it because I find it too expensive. And like you, I can’t open the files some advertisers are sending me. I would love to win this.

  15. What an awesome giveaway for someone who needs this software! I like testing new software to see just what works!

  16. This looks like a great alternative and definitely not as tough on the wallet. Thank you for sharing your own personal experience with the software.

  20. I had not heard of the WPS Office. It is a fraction of the cost of Microsoft Windows!

  21. Having access to this program must be so convenient. I often have to switch laptops just to be able to open certain attachments in my emails since I don’t have it.

  22. Awesome competition. Think this will definitely help many that are trying to build their businesses.

  23. I don’t think I have heard of WPS Office! That’s cool that it is compatible with the Microsoft Office files, and that it doesn’t require any tech savvyness!
