Does the Windows 8 License Upgrade include 5 license per year?

I purchased the Windows 8 upgrade today for the 39.99 special. I read somewhere that the upgrade would include 5 license upgrades per year. Does this mean that I can transfer the license and upgrade Windows on other computers in my house? If so how do I go about this? Thanks ahead of time for any info on the subject.

Hello DaveHorn_118,

I believe you misread the information about the Windows 8 upgrade.
When you upgrade to Windows 8, it is only for one license for one system.

This information may be what you read from the Windows Update Offer FAQs:

Is there a limit to the number of promotions that I can register for?
The promotional price is limited to one upgrade offer per eligible PC purchased and a maximum limit of five upgrade offers per customer.
Upgrade Software

Each upgrade license will apply to only one PC and may only be installed on PCs with a valid base license to a qualifying operating system (i.e., Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista or Windows 7).

While the offer will be limited to eligible customers who purchase a qualified PC, the upgrade may be installed on any compatible Windows-based PC with a qualifying operating system (see Windows 8 System Requirements). Customers should visit their PC manufacturer’s website for more information about how to upgrade their PC to Windows 8, including updated software and drivers.
