For creatives and freelancers who need editing software while working from home during the COVID-19 outbreak, Adobe is briefly offering two free months of Creative Cloud access”but only for existing subscribers. Sign in to your Adobe ID on Adobe.com, then go to “Plans” and click to cancel your current subscription”but don’t follow through. While in the cancellation process, look for the “Offers” link and you should see the special discount. Click the offer, and the two months will be automatically applied to your account.
Hey photographers & creatives! @Adobe cares that things are difficult right now – they're offering two months free on your plan. Go to cancel your plan, go to Offers and you'll find this. pic.twitter.com/UZj48Y2Bsb— Megan Breukelman (@meganbreukelman) March 17, 2020
You’ll still be automatically billed the normal monthly cost once the 60 days are up, which could be as much as $US79.50 ($133) depending on which plan you use. Set a reminder on your phone to cancel your membership 60 days from now if you don’t want to pay. Hopefully the worst of the COVID-19 turmoil will be behind us before then, but it’s still smart to plan ahead.
Offering the entire Creative Cloud suite for free is a welcome move for those of us in creative fields, especially for freelancers who are losing gigs due to stream entertainment.
