Adobe Creative Cloud 40% Discount Ends This Month

Adobe Creative Cloud

Since the Adobe Creative Cloud launch back in May, those who owned Adobe CS3 or later apps have been able to subscribe to Creative Cloud for only $29.99 per month (instead of the standard $49 per month rate).  This deal ends on August 31, 2012.

So if you’ve been on the fence about moving to Creative Cloud (and getting access to all of the Adobe CS6 apps – e.g., Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, etc.), now is the time to lock in your discounted rate for a whole year.  More info here on Adobe’s website.

On a personal note, I signed up for Creative Cloud on day one at the discounted rate and have no complaints about the service.  I love having access to all the Adobe CS6 apps without the big upgrade fee all at once.

    My issue with adobe is that there is not way out of the cloud subscription and no good way back in. For example my company uses 3d cad software that costs $10,000. We pay $500 a year to keep the software on ‘subscription’ which guarantees support and constant updates to new versions. At any point though I can leave ‘subscription’ status and keep the version I am using indefinitely this way I can at least open and edit my current files. If I want to re-enter subscription status, I have to pay a $500 penalty for leaving. I WISH Adobe allowed something similar with Cloud subscription because there will come a time that either I don’t need updates, can’t afford updates, are mostly using adobe products on the side, or are no longer going to be creating new files but still need to open/edit past projects like if I were to not continue my business. If I have subscription, i’m screwed because if I don’t continue paying Adobe, I will no longer even be able to open the files I have created. Not cool adobe

      In your example the software costs $10K, so you do purchase 3d cad and after that they give you a “subscription” option. Adobe charges a monthly “subscription” for using CS6 without any upfront fees, which is the key. I think it’s fair, at $30 per month you can’t beat it.
