Amazingly generous offer from Adobe

I have often defended the pricing of Adobe products on the basis they are designed for people who reclaim the costs and they offer by far the most polished product with innovative features that the other products shamefully copy.

But in these times of austerity and people watching the pennies I was not surprised to see that even they have an exclusive offer.

This morning a card from Adobe arrived addressed to me personally telling me about this once in a lifetime offer. If i purchase a copy of Creative Suite CS5 in November ie itoday or tomorrow (well another copy as I already have one and boy am I regretting not wating for this offer)

I will get .. free shipping!! Yes that is no misprint you read that correctly if I spend between £419 and £2706 depending on the product then they will not charge me a single penny to send me all those lovely disks in a box almost as big as a cereal packet.

You may have to hurry, as I suspect once word of this gets out they will sell out in minutes.

Re: Amazingly generous offer from Adobe

There is more than one offer available from Adobe at the moment, but I thought that they were all aimed at the Americas

The other thing with them I noticed when recently purchasing CS5 is that it's more expensive to buy the download option from them, than to get them to ship the CD's.

Anyway found Amazon was cheaper + with free shipping !

The Student discount is an amazing saving.

Re: Amazingly generous offer from Adobe

I'm not remotely disputing what you're saying, I'm just trying to get it straight in my head. Whilst I can understand Adobe not wanting to sell to a professional at student prices, are you also saying that no one can sell a photograph that's been pp'd on a student copy of Photoshop? I ask because I've been considering giving one of my daughters, who is a bona fide student, the money to buy herself a copy, and although professional photography isn't her goal, she is a very talented amateur and isn't against the idea of selling the occasional shot to fund her main passion in life, which is music.

Please feel free to dispute what I am saying as, in fact, as is often the case I was wrong. It used to be part of the licence conditions but, on checking, I find the eligible student can now use the academic version for commercial use indeed even after they cease to be a student.

LOL! This exclusive offer must be worth......... oh, all of 1/3rd of 1% or a massive 2% if you go for the least expensive (I'm assuming that cereal boxes cost a tenner to post)
