Can I purchase a creative cloud activation from another provider?

My new professor gave us a website that gives a creative cloud activation at a discounted rate. It is legit and still requires us to provide our .edu email. Am I able to switch my account with the current $52.99/mo to this new plan without any fees or penalties? The current license is costing me too much and I need to have a cheaper option soon. This website provides an even cheaper rate than the student plan adobe provides.

Can you post a link to that site?

If it sounds too good to be true...

#1 Only Adobe authorized resellers / partners are allowed to sell Creative Cloud subscriptions.

https://adobedealreg.secure.force.com/PartnerSearch?lang=en

 

#2 If you cancel early, you will get hit with penalty fees.  Read your terms of service. 

https://www.adobe.com/legal/subscription-terms.html

 

#3 Purchases from 2 different vendors cannot be combined.  They are 2 separate orders.

 

#4  The Adobe student rate is the lowest price you can get.  For the first year, it's 60% off.  Then it reverts to about 40% off until you cancel. 

 

=====================

Beware of fake Adobe reps offering to sell you software or take control of your computer.  It's a scam.  Run Away!

There are indeed websites that offer student licences at lower cost than the Adobe site, but make sure you read the fine print!

 

I'm dealing with a Dutch site that offers fantastic prices, but doesn't always renew the subscription so students all of a sudden lose access in their second year.
