    I haven't looked myself, but application of the rule "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is" means I wouldn't bother with it.

    Proper pricing for school use and for home use here: http://www.wordshark.co.uk/prices.aspx

    All I'll say is that ours cost much more than that, bought from them directly. So I think @elsiegee40 advice is sound.

    With declaration of interest as Support Manager for Wordshark -

    Thanks Elsiegee40, I confirm that is the current pricelist.
    I have looked, and it is the same firm that is selling on both amazon.co.uk and .com. I doubt they have meant to give the Americans such a good deal.
    The list price for a single user CD, inc VAT and postage, for UK customers is 69 for Wordshark (unchanged for best part of a decade, despite the program hugely expanding in that time). In almost all cases, the single user CD is not the optimum product for school use - we have several other delivery mechanisms (activation, USB, network) that are usually more appropriate within a school.
