Hi, I am a student with a massive customer service complaint as I am a huge fan of adobe.
On the 3rd of January 2017, my adobe student account was set to autorenewal but because I had an enterprise account with SCAD, where I am studying, I cancelled the autopay no later than the 6th the moment I found out. This also set my bank account into overdraft as I did not leave much money in this bank account and was travelling overseas. The confirmation of cancellation was emailed to me as well as on the instruction, it said I would receive my money back within a week. Two weeks passed and I didn't not receive my refund so I contacted adobe services through chat. The representative confirmed my case and information and said I would be receiving a refund a week from our chat date. After 2.5 more weeks and still no refund, I contacted adobe services through chat again. I stated my case as well as mentioned the previous chat.This time the representative named Paumei said I had not purchased anything with Adobe. I assured them that I did as I had an invoice from Adobe. Then they said I did not cancel and only cancelled on the day I was chatting with them as that was what was showing in the system. I then again provided proof in form of an email cancellation from Adobe, which I also mentioned I could send right back from the email I received it from. Then they said to process the cancellation again. This would not be possible as it is already listed as cancelled in my account. I asked to escalate the situation to management as at no point whatsoever when I provided proof was there any apologies but a passive denial that it did not show that in their system. This is very upsetting as if I did not have proof, I would assume that this would be a case of customer fraud. Then the agent said they will have someone contact me back in 24-48 hours. I have already explained the situation without swearing and as well as I think a person in my position could have. I would like Adobe to evaluate their relationship with the customer service agency they are currently with as I am hoping this may be an isolated case incident. Good day.

I am going through the exact same thing. I contacted support immediately on 14th March, it's now 3rd April and I've still received no contact or refund. I contacted again on 23rd March, was told they forgot and are doing it now and to wait another 5-7 days. Now I'm in the waiting line for support again as it still hasn't been actioned.
just been told to wait another 3-4 working days
Apologies for the delay. I've asked the support team to look into this as a matter of urgency.
Am going through this same issue right now.
I have as recently been told that my credit card was refunded which I have confirmed with my bank never happened.
My ordeal has been going on for weeks.
I keep getting the run around.
Not sure what recourse I can take at this point.
I really like Adobe products but after this I will certainly NOT deal with them again.
Very poor customer service.
Sorry to hear that you haven't received your refund. I'll ask the support team to look into this and follow up with you.
Do you need my case number?
It's fine, we have the information required.
I have been incorrectly charged $20.99 for a product that I did not request. I have tried to use the Adobe help support but have not received a response yet despite being a couple of days now.
Would you be able to assist? Or know of someone else who can?
I've sent you a private message to get some additional information.
I cancelled my subscription and It said the same, that I'll get a refund but it hasn't been sent to me yet while Adobe has charged me an extra amount for some reason. Can you solve this at all?
The refund was processed on 10th July and should show on your account within the next couple of days.
What extra amount were you charged? You may see a $1 pre-authorization amount on your credit card but this is not charged and will drop off your statement.
Absolutely disgusted with Adobe and their customer service. Attempted to cancel my subscription twice. Have still been being charges $10/month for almost 18 months. I have not logged in or utilized the services and Adobe refunded me a whopping $10. Unacceptable. I even changed my credit card number and they were still somehow charging my bank account.
I have not received my refund as well it’s nearly a month now.
Sorry for the delay. There was an issue with the refund transaction which has now been fixed. You will receive the refund within 3-5 days.
I am having the same issue. Despite cancelling within 14 days of buying the product, I have yet to recieve a refund.
Refunds are processed within 5-7 days of cancelling so you'll see this on your credit card statement within the next couple of days.
I have the same problem I did not recieved my refund; it has been more then 10 days working.

I already did that and the aget didn't gave me clear answer.
If Adobe want to avoid reputational damage especially here in Australia ask our big four banks! I have called twice to be told the same thing about my refund. The very fact you have a dialogue and group of people complaining over the same thing screams to me unscrupulous and dodgy. Can you please urgently look into my refund before I escalate this outside of Adobe we have multiple channels to escalate complaints here in Australia
Days of b ig multinationals that take their customers for a ride and pillages under Ts and C's is over
I can see that your case was escalated and the refund was processed on 5th November. You will receive the funds within 5-7 days.
