This Hack can Save you $25 a Month on Your Adobe Subscription!
Updated: Mar 3
In my case I saved $24.98 if you want to get really specific, and I'll be honest, I stumbled on this completely on accident so there's no guarantee
this will work for you, but if you can save around $200 a year why not give it a shot!
This all started when yesterday when I added on a the 1 TB storage option to my adobe account for $10 so I could start using photoshop for iPad and try to streamline my mobile workflow. Clicking purchase on that plan made me realize that I was paying for the pro plan on Dropbox that I probably hadn't used in 2 years. Irresponsible, I know 🥸... Anyway, that got me wondering how much cloud storage I had on Google. Turns out with my plan I have, I have a WHOPPING 10 TB of cloud storage that I am using all of 100GB. This really got me in a bit of a tizzy and I immediately went over to my Adobe account and canceled the cloud storage plan, because let's be honest, I didn't really need it.
After I filled out the questions about why I was canceling my subscription, I was offered one month of cloud storage for free (which I declined). From there I was pushed to the landing page for my current plan which was the all apps with 20GB or cloud storage for $57.89 a month. I didn't think about taking a screen shot while the offer banner was still there, but the image below is the screen that you'll be looking for. There's an arrow pointing at where you should look for your offer.
You'll notice that my plan now says I have 100GB of cloud storage, and my bill was $43.89. So not only did I save $14, I got an extra 80GB of storage which is more than enough to transfer a file or two so I can edit on the go.
Literally as I was writing this post, I decided I wanted to test out and see if I could get an additional discount if I tried to cancel the entirety of my Adobe subscription, and you better believe they gave me an additional $10 off per month when I tried to cancel. Now, you may not want to do this for moral or ethical reasons, but the way I look at it is that they're clearly overcharging if they're just throwing discounts at me like this without any question.
If you're looking to save a few bucks a month and you're currently draining your bank account paying full price for the creative suite, I would seriously encourage you to give this a shot. I don't know if you need to get the cloud subscription first in order to get this whole discount ball rolling, but I know that's what did it for me. Well, that about wraps it up, and now I'm going to go cancel my Dropbox subscription.
If you gave this a shot, drop a line down in the comments and let me know if it worked, or didn't work. I would love to hear from you either way!
