Microsoft began offering the packs in October, saying it was for a "limited-time only."
Amazon's Family Pack page now says: "Available to purchase until December 31, or while supplies last."
Microsoft priced the 3-license pack at $150, but Amazon is selling it for $125.
In 2009, after the launch of Windows 7, Microsoft offered the Family Pack for 6 weeks before taking it off the market. Because it was pulled just before the holidays, angry potential buyers began calling the software giant "Scrooge."
Consumers buying a Family Pack save $235 off Microsoft's list price for three individual Windows 7 Home Premium licenses.
