Can you Pre-Pay 2-4 months at a Time?

If I select the $49/month Creative Cloud one-year commitment Subscription, will I be able to pre-pay (for example pay 3 months at a time) rather than be billed monthly, since the monthly price is guaranteed to remain the same for the one year term?

    I don't think it is possible to pay in advance with this option but the reoccuring monthly charge does happen automatically without intervention.

    Will any pre-paid plans be available? We'd like to pay for a whole 12 month membership in one shot. It's just an extra hassle for the accounting to collect the invoices monthly.

    I see no mention of a prepaid one year plan so I'm guessing that is not an option. I'd like you (Adobe) to consider offering such payment option.

    Hello,

     

    We do actually have a prepaid option if you buy through participating resellers and online stores. We are offering a 3 and 12-month prepaid option for Creative Cloud. You can preorder this right now on Amazon:

    Thanks,

     

    Bridget

    Great. Can this prepaid option be combined with the discounted $29.99/month offer from Adobe?

    Hi Walter,

     

    Select retailers may be offering a similar program for current Creative Suite customers. Check with Amazon as I believe they have a mail-in rebate offering for customers who can validate that they own an eligible CS product.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Bridget

    That is NOT what he is referring to...

     

    CAN a "1-year $29.99/month plan" accept payments which cover amounts GREATER than one month?

     

    Think of it as asking, "Is there any prepayment penalty?"

    Hi ZenZenPup,

     

    When you buy a month-to-month or annual membership directly from Adobe, a prepayment model is not available. You simply pay the monthly fee each month. The only way to prepay for a membership is to buy a 3 or 12-month prepaid membership at a participating reseller or online store, such as Amazon.com or Staples.com. 

     

    Thanks,

     

    Bridget

    Bridget,

     

    Saying THAT from the beginning would have been a lot better than dancing around his question.

     

    You did not answer him. You gave me the answer he was looking for. Pure and simple.

    An update here:

     

    It seems the company has been listening to what you requested...  Adobe has quietly begun offering a new direct pre-payment option for CC subscriptions.  This can be used to purchase 12-month plans for either individual or education memberships.  By paying annually in advance, students & teachers can now get an even larger discount.

     

    Also note that Amazon no longer sells the prepaid Creative Cloud key cards; they stopped carrying them late last year.  However, in addition to direct from Adobe, they can still be purchased elsewhere like at BestBuy.com.
