The Adobe Student and Teacher Editions look like a great deal. They offer big discounts, as much as 70% off normal prices. They’re available for most of Adobe’s most popular products, including the Creative Cloud (CC), Creative Suite 6, Lightroom 5, Acrobat XI, and Elements 13. They can be purchased by anyone who qualifies – primary, middle, and secondary school students, homeschoolers, college or university students, faculty, teachers, and administrators. Even part-time students or teachers can be eligible, and there is no maximum age limitation. They’re available pretty much worldwide in many languages on both Windows and Mac OS, and you don’t need any kind of coupon or promotion code to get the deep discounts.

A lot of people have been asking for this, and now there is a solution for all customers worldwide… Adobe’s recent CC 2014 release of creative desktop tools has been well-received, but some folks prefer not to have a monthly payment on their credit cards or would rather prepay for their Creative Cloud memberships upfront, a year (or more) at a time. This used to be tricky, but fortunately there is now a very easy way to do it for all products available.
For each different Adobe subscription plan, you’ll now find a dropdown menu with a One-Year Prepaid option when buying or renewing your Creative Cloud subscription. These prepaid plans are offered in up to 84 countries and allows you to make a one-time charge in advance of each year, rather than a smaller amount each month… It solves the problem for those who may have difficulties with month-by-month recurring payments, and it’s available for all different types of memberships: Individual, Education, or Business; including upgrades from older software.
If you look at the various CC plans available, the new choice reads: “Annual plan, prepaid – One convenient payment with no monthly billing.” So anyone can get this arrangement going forward, including for the popular $9.99 Photoshop/Photography Plan – and the total cost will be the same or less than the standard CC payment options:
