We'll I just cancelled my adobe plan because I didn't use it. They tell you they charge you month to month but nowhere during the transaction do they mention that if you cancel early your stuck paying 50% of th total year. What a waste, I'm def never utilizing them for any other projects.
i'm not sure what you saw on the date you subscribed but it's becoming more and more obvious, there's a fee for early cancellation of annual contracts. currently, this is the first thing you see after clicking a "buy now" button:
that's just the first (and most obvious) warning. but if you're too oblivious to notice that, (imo) adobe would need to activate a remote cattle prod to alert you.
I didn't know they'd updated that! COOL.
They seem to tweak it at regular intervals. I've seen several versions.
No scam about it.
Where I attended school, ANNUAL = 12 months. An annual subscription is a 12 month commitment whether you prepay for the entire year or pay in monthly installments.
To avoid early cancellation fees, you must cancel within the first 14 days of service or wait until your 12 month before it automatically renews.
Sorry if you didn't read the terms you agreed to. But you most certainly agreed to them, otherwise you couldn't have downloaded & installed the software.
