Chapter in this post:
Those who are still dependent on Adobe's Creative Cloud and have not yet made the switch to Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher has made it, he will surely know the usual price of almost 60 euros, which you normally have to shell out as an Adobe customer per month. For a good two years now I have been able to get a discount for Adobe CC again and again and then get away with it for another 12 months for less.
If you don't want to read for a long time, but want to go straight to the offer, you will get there here for the Adobe CC discount.
40% discount on the entire Creative Cloud
Adobe is currently offering a whopping 40% discount again, which makes the regular 59,49 euros only 35,69 euros (due to the VAT reduction even only 34,79 euros). The offer is valid until July 6, 2020 and is "limited" to the full Adobe Suite. If you only want Lightroom and Photoshop, you won't get an additional 12% on the 40 euro monthly subscription.
Warning: cancel in good time!
The 40% subscription is unfortunately associated with a 12 month term. That means you cannot cancel on a monthly basis. Billing, on the other hand, can be for a year in advance or on a monthly basis.
However, you should be careful, because if you don't cancel the subscription, it will be extended for another year at the normal price of just under 60 euros. The reason I do it is that I always give notice immediately after graduation and then set a date in my calendar from which I have to "post-book".
Usually there is a new offer so that I stick to the 40% discount in the long term.
Renewing an existing subscription does not work
When I first used the offer two years ago, my normal Adobe CC subscription was still running. I tried to "extend" the term with the offer, but Adobe won't allow it. You can only let an existing subscription continue until it is extended or you can let it expire and then book later.
In the end, I made it so that I booked the cheap discount subscription shortly before the end of the campaign with a new e-mail and thus also a new Adobe ID. A few weeks of my existing subscription were lost because I paid twice, but the bottom line was that I was still much cheaper than with the normal subscription price.
Trick the limitation on new customers
I read in the terms that the offer is limited to new customers booking Adobe Cloud for the first time. This means that the offer will probably not work if you have an Adobe ID with which you have already booked the Adobe CC subscription. In order to bypass this "block", however, you can simply create a new Adobe ID with a fresh email address and book the Adobe CC subscription on it.
I did it this way and could still enjoy the 40% discount, but if someone has a lot of data, brushes, actions or the like in the Adobe cloud, changing the Adobe ID may not be a viable step. Here everyone has to see for themselves how they deal with it.
In the Creative Cloud app on the Mac, however, the stored Adobe ID can be changed relatively easily. To do this, go to the profile picture at the top right and then select "Log out". You can now log in with a new Adobe ID and continue to use all Adobe software.
If you want to use the estate now, you will get it here for a 40% discount on the Adobe Creative Cloud.
