It looks like this offer has been extended one month longer!!! This post was updated August 2, 2020.

I just built a new PC and activated Windows 10 Pro using a old Windows key so that technique will still work. I purchased this using the offer below for any future computer build.

From Carey Holzman's YouTube post:

We PC users aren’t happy that Microsoft still charges for its operating systems. Yet charge they do, so you may as well spend as little money as possible. How about $39.99 for the official retail version of Windows 10 Professional? That’s an 80 percent discount off this version’s full MSRP of $199, and it’s available for the month of July in the PCWorld Software Store.

This offer is for a Microsoft-licensed retail version of Windows 10 Pro, and not an OEM version. If you’re already using Windows 10 Home, you can drop in the product key you purchase for Professional, and your PC will upgrade accordingly.

PCWorld’s partner, Mediamart, is able to secure great discounts by going directly to software vendors and publishers, buying licenses in bulk, and then working with safe, secure brands (like PCWorld) to sell the software directly to consumers. Please note this deal is for an unlimited lifetime license for a single PC.

Of course, not everyone actually needs Windows 10 Professional—we explain all the details in “Who needs Windows 10 Pro: 5 reasons to upgrade.” But you will want to make the leap from the Home to the Pro version if you need the following features:

BitLocker device encryption: Invaluable if your machine is lost or stolen.

Client Hyper-V: Creates a secure operating environment within your PC that allows you to run different operating systems, including Linux, future builds of Windows 10, and even older versions of Windows.
Windows Information Protection: An enterprise feature for protecting against employee data leaks.

Remote Desktop Connection: Essential for full remote control of your desktop.

Thank you. Useful information.  Especially for me if I give up on fixing my #2 machine (the one that got thr STOP Code)!
