Best place to buy Win10 CD key??

Hey OCN,

Whats the best place you've found to buy a WIN10 CD key (I need it today). Any feedback on URCDkeys.com or any other site is appreciated. eBay no good-- can't wait for the flash drive in the mail.

Thanks!

Anything other than official channels you risk getting burned.

I wasted 40bux on a Win10 Pro key on one of the major "Discount CD Key" sites and low and behold it was already activated. Not everyone has this experience, others get legit keys. But just food for thought if money is a concern. If expedience is more important, then I would suggest to install the 30day trial of the version of Windows that you want to use and then order the CD key from a seller you trust and wait for it to be delivered.

Just a thought.

Go to Techbargains.com. They have verified deals on licenses. Usually from SCDKEy.com but sometimes others. I never have burned going there.

I just install Windows 10 with Windows 7 keys. It activates just fine and win7 keys are probably cheaper. I got all mine from legit 7 COA stickers off machines that were getting scrapped.

A computer hardware/software store, but then they don't cost $10 but a lot lot more as it's the real thing not some "repurposed"/resold volume license key.
You never know with the resell sites that offer cheaper software (and games) keys, if it will work or not, if it's legit and legal or not.

I was dumb enough to buy a retail key from Microsoft directly. First time ever I've done that, usually I've used OEM keys.

Hi,
I did too
It did not activate after changing mother board either
ms rep was useless

Now it's 20.us keys from either ebay or my preferred now software4u they actually do reactivate automatically if you get the retail instead of oem only 10.us difference

Even saw some enterprise on ebay for like 10.us.
