Adobe Software “Free Trials” and Rebates with Lexar Memory Cards

Adobe Lightroom 2

Lexar is now providing free trials and rebates on Adobe software with the purchase of Lexar memory cards, including the new Lexar Professional 600x CF cards.  Notably, you can get $100 off Lightroom 2 when you buy one of the new Professional 600x cards.

Although, the free trial doesn’t really seem like it’s anything special because you can already get a free trial from Adobe on these products anyway.  That sounds more like marketing fluff; however, the $100 off Lightroom 2 is not a bad deal at all, particularly if you’re in need of some fast memory cards.

I have requested clarification from Lexar on whether the rebates can be stacked with Adobe’s current standalone $20 rebates on Photoshop Elements products, and whether the “free trial” offered through Lexar provides any additional value to customers aside from what Adobe already offers.  Unfortunately, I did not receive a response at the time this news was published.  I will update this post if/when Lexar responds.
