I want to purchase a subscription for my brother so when he goes to hospital he'll he able to edit videos and things while recovering but I'm struggling to find a way to get it to him as a surprise.
I heard there's ways to get redemption codes but I'm struggling to find where to purchase them so that I can give it to him to redeem. Any help would be appreciated, I don't want to buy it with my account and allow him access because I believe that's a TOS breach so any help would be great.
the best option would be to gift via redemption code in which needs no further payment & can be redeemed with the Adobe ID that you want so you can create a new adobe id using different email if you don't want to use yours.They can be purchased from re-sellers.
you can create another email that is close to your brother's email/name and buy the subscription on it and when you want to give him the gift you just give him the email and the password that you created and bought the subscription on it
this way will be the easiest way for you and for him.
But in this case try to do the subscription as soon as you want to give him the gift so you can benefit from all the subscription period
I wanted to do this as well, and I was surprised by the fact that Adobe's online purchase process doesn't yet support purchasing a license for someone else online. I confirmed this with a helpful CS agent via a chat session today, and will follow up with him via email to make the purchase, once I get my niece's email address.
To paraphrase the process required: 1) I'll send the Adobe CS agent an email, which will include my niece's email and my phone number 2) Agent will call me to set up an Adobe ID for my niece, and take my payment (via a secure online portal) 3) Agent will then generate an email for my niece with the redemption details
Gee, that sounds easy and painless, right. 😉
After thanking the agent, I couldn't resist the opportunity to suggest "Maybe if you get tired of having this conversation with enough customers like me, that might change in the future?" 😉
