Adobe offers student discount

Adobe is offering a new service discount to students and teachers through March 11.

Adobe Creative Cloud will be available at a $19.99 per month rate for students.  Creative Cloud allows users access to all of Adobe’s products in Creative Suite 6, like Photoshop and InDesign. Users will receive updates to the programs when they come out and can sync to their phones, tablets and computers.

Students who purchase the Creative Cloud plan will have the same benefits of the Individual Complete plan, including 20 GB of Cloud storage and full access to the apps.

Those who do not want the Creative Cloud and are still interested in education discounts can still apply them to other Adobe products.  Students can also buy the full suite Master Collection for $999.99, or Creative Suite 6 Design Standard Student and Teacher edition for $449.99.  Meanwhile, a year’s subscription at $19.99 would cost $239.88.

A free version of the software also exists.  User would have 2 GB of storage and limited access to select Adobe services.

Once a student cancels their membership they lose the use of the services.  Files can still be accessed if they were saved on the user’s computer.  They may also have access to the free version.

After March 11 prices will go back to their ordinary cost of $29.99 per month.
