Hello,

After I've logged in to Adobe, I'm encouraged to try the benefits of registration listed here:  http://www.adobecs3.com/register/benefits/?lang=en, but the items are not active links.

I've checked to see if I AM registered properly and am advised that I am -- but can't seem to activate the downloads (which I'd like to use, especially the fonts).  Any assistance much appreciated!

Thanks!

That's not a Complete Link if it was it would not be ended with a comma

I take that back it does work but it takes you back to a page with no way out except to close window or back track.  If you scroll down to bottom of page page the is a link in Lilpuchen print you need a 20 Power telescope to see about if you wish to ask questions.

You're correct, the comma is not part of the url.  It is, rather part of an English teacher's necessary grammar.  Will get out magnifying glasses and look at url.

Wrong forum, Pamela.

Product questions will not (and should not) be answered here.

Yes, but introducing it (the comma) the way you have screws up the link and makes it inoperable.

Actually, the link works fine.  The comma doesn't affect it at all -- try it.

I have found that it may take as long as six months for Adobe to send you the email with the links to the registration benefits after you have registered.  If you register multiple times (due to reinstalls, installs on laptop, etc.), you will get one email per registration, way late.

Good luck getting anything. I have never received anything in the past CS2, CS3. When I purchased CS4 a while back I never even bothered to select the free benefit crap as I knew I would never get it.

Hmmm...

I get my emails within hours of registering. I had to reinstall Photoshop the other day and during the reinstall I registered again and got another email with a free gift. I bet if you have a SPAM filter and they are all in the SPAM folder of your Email software.

That means that you prbobaly set yourself NOT to receive Adobe offers, ads, alerts and emails in your Adobe account (the so-called "store" account) not your forum prefs.

Good for you, do a couple of extra shots for good measure.

Although I have to admit I'm on a bit of a Martini thing lately. Vodka, Shaken not stirred.

Note that you only get your choice of ONE of those "bonuses", not all of them.

AAAA_registration_bonuses.jpg

Also, you get access to them as you originally register the product.  They will send you an email with a code so that you can redeem one of bonus prizes, not all of them—and there is absolutely no way to get them after the fact or through other channels.
