Adobe Creative Cloud Student Pricing Is Somewhat Less Painful

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.
