Adobe December/Christmas Holiday 2011 Offers, Deals and Coupons

December 13th, 2011 2 comments

[UPDATE – See all of Adobe’s current deals & discounts!]

If you missed the deals Adobe had running for Black Friday, not to worry as there are more great holiday specials going for December through Christmas, Boxing Day, and on to New Year’s and beyond – and here’s your guide…

Adobe has a dozen major offers in multiple countries covering popular products – including saving 10-20% on Creative Suite 5 and 5.5 products, 30% on either Lightroom 3 or the new Photoshop & Premiere Elements 10, 10% additional discount in the Education Store, plus free shipping. The deals have various expiration dates Europe/UK, Australia/NZ, and North America. Note that you do need to use individual coupon codes (linked below) for many of them.

Take an extra €30/£25 off the already-discounted price of Photoshop CS5!

All the holiday offers and some of their graphics are detailed below, and are available only for direct purchases.  This end-of-year sale will probably mark Adobe’s last discounts for a while, so if you’ve been waiting to make a move – especially with the recent changes in Creative Suite upgrade policy – then now could be your time…

Note that if you buy either Photoshop or a CS5.5 suite together with Adobe Lightroom, then these coupon codes are stackable with an additional 30% off Lightroom 3 offer! (valid worldwide until December 31st, 2011)

If you prefer to try before buying, you can instantly download any Adobe product you want as a fully-working 30-day free tryout, then later purchase/activate it within the savings period to get the discount.

Adobe Says No CS6 Upgrade Discounts from Older CS2, CS3, or CS4

November 10th, 2011 98 comments

[UPDATE (January 11th, 2012) – Adobe has listened to customers and just reversed this change! CS3, CS4, & CS5 are all good for upgrade to CS6 now.]

HUGE breaking news out from Adobe, regarding substantial changes in upgrade pricing and policies for their very popular Creative Suite software

Save 20% extra on your upgrade to Adobe CS5.5

For several years, the company has offered a “three-versions-back” upgrade policy – meaning anyone who owned a prior CS product up to three major versions back would be eligible for discounted upgrade pricing when moving up to the latest release.

Meaning, if you’ve got CS2, CS3, or CS4 – either a full suite or an individual point product like Photoshop – you can receive price reductions of up to 80% when upgrading to CS5.5.

Adobe now says that will be ending – the policy is going to shift dramatically, worldwide.

Starting in 2012 when CS6 comes out, this will be changing to a “one-version-back” plan – meaning to receive a price break when upgrading to CS6, you need to already be on some flavor of Creative Suite 5 – either CS5 or CS5.5.

So, what does this mean for anybody still running CS2, CS3, or CS4 at that time?  Basically, if you want to upgrade later or have been waiting for CS6 to do so, it would cost you full price… To receive a discount from older versions, you’d need to upgrade to CS5 before CS6 ships.

Here it is straight from Adobe’s “Conversations” Blog:

Adobe Deal: Save 50%(!) on Premiere Pro CS5.5 or Production Suite

July 8th, 2011 Leave a comment

[UPDATE – See all of Adobe’s current deals & discounts!]

Adobe has launched a true barnburner of a deal, a “first” for owners of competitive software and also for owners of many versions of Adobe products who can now buy the latest CS5.5 release of Premiere Pro or the full Production Premium suite (Windows or Mac) for half-off their normal prices with coupon code, and the offer is available all over the world…

Half-Price Coupon Code: CS5.5 Production Premium

It’s officially targeted at video users and producers, but because the suite contains products like Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, Flash Professional, Audition, and Flash Catalyst in addition to Premiere Pro* and After Effects* (see the full list of applications included), many could take advantage at these prices. For example, the normal price of Photoshop CS5 Extended is US$999, but with this special you get that plus an entire suite of 10 other products for US$849 total!

Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer customers can receive the 50% savings off the full versions of Premiere Pro CS5.5 or CS5.5 Production Premium – but you must use the promotion code linked here: SWITCH. If you need more convincing, see the Top 10 Reasons to Switch to Premiere Pro CS5.5 (now just $399), or learn why Adobe is offering this sale.

Owners of any of the Adobe tools listed below are also eligible to receive the same price (50% off the full version) on the Production Premium suite, under a parallel offer…
