Adobe’s habit of routinely overcharging Australians always makes us unhappy. One of the few legitimate means of reducing that cost is signing up for a student licence. That option has now opened up for the Creative Cloud subscription package, but you need to sign up by the end of November if you want the $14.99 a month rate.
The regular price for Creative Cloud is $62.99, so that’s a good saving. To qualify, you need to send a scan of an accepted form of ID to Adobe — you can’t just fake your way in with a edu.au email address.
According to Adobe, the $14.99 a month offer is available until November 30, and requires you to sign up for a one-year subscription. After that, the price will rise to $24.99. For once, the Australia tax doesn’t seem to directly apply; the current on-special price for the US is $US19.99 a month, and goes up to $US49.99 from November 4.
