I signed up for Adobe, to try it out, inspire my creativity, and just do something new. I'm a student, and used the student discount to just look around on it for a couple of months. But as a student your life changes and you don't have enough time to use the softwares to the level that paying $20 for it a month is worth it or doable as a student

 

adobe purposefully uses deceptive marketing tactics to bring users in. I somehow signed up for an annual contract??? When I decided to cancel it I was charged an extra $40. They knew I was a student, probably a person with not a lot of money, but decided to set up their payment plans in a way that I would have to pay the most. They used the student discount to draw me in like they cared about me as a student just to take more of my money in the end. 

 

I really hope this company goes out of business, and gets replaced with a company that doesn't use such shady tactics and treats their customers with transparency and respect.


I will never sign up for this horrible service again. Unless you are willing to admit your mistakes and change your products to be more transparent and doable for all walks of life. And not use the service as a way to push more and more money out of people every chance you can get.

BTW, this is not a direct pipeline to Adobe. This is a user-to-user forum.     To put this in perspective, $20/month is less than what I pay for beverages.  You have a rare opportunity to use industry grade, professional design & video software at a huge discount (60% off the first year, 40% off thereafter).  But all you can do is complain about Adobe.  OMG really?!  That shows a total lack of awareness on your part.  You obviously don't deserve the student discount because you're not smart enou...

I agree with them.Annual subscription is a business model used not only by Adobe but also by other companies, and is not a scam.I think this is a good social study for OP.

Goodbye & good luck to your instructors.
