Claim your exclusive benefit page says CS5 and it offered nothing.

Tags: #production_premium #activation

Not a question but a comment. After install of CS6 prompted to edit acct profile.

 

I do so and get the msg to "Claim your exclusive benefit today!"

 

Sure... well I click that and it says "Adobe CS5" at the top and then says "We apologize that complimentary registration benefits are not available with this product."

 

Seems funny it says CS5 at the top because I upgraded to Prod Premium CS6.

    I have had the same problem. I installed the CS6 Design & Web Premium upgrade. I even got an email from Adobe asking me to update my profile, when I did I was offerred an exclusive benefit, clicked on the gift parcel icon, and received the same message.

     

    I started a support case, but haven't heard back. Their servers might be a little busy today

    For what it's worth, I'm also having the same issue with CS6 Master Collection.

    I am continuing to investigate the difficulties with the Product registration incentive offer for CS6.  Once I have something definative I will report back to this thread.

    Yes, I too am getting this error. I originally went through InDesign and got it. Then I received an email telling me to upgrade my info and it took me to the same page which upon updating my info, then gave me the error listed above. I did a search on the text and this link pulled up the same page, but this is not Adobe?

    I apologize for the inconvenience but the Product Registration Incentive Offer was offered in error.  With CS6 we automatically register your product when you activate with your Adobe ID.  We have corrected the misinformation which was being offered by our site.

    I doesn't seem to have been fixed yet.

     

    When I click on the link provided in the email titled "Remember to complete your Adobe profile"  sent to me on May 7 after I purchased and installed the CS6 Design and Web upgrade, I arrive at a screen with Home/My Adobe/Edit Your Adobe Account Information at the top. Next comes the Claim your exclusive prize and a nice picture of a gift box.

     

    It seems as though Adobe marketing, tech support, and management are not talking.

     

    Not good to raise expectations and then not follow through.

    Same here. It is exactly the same. Nothing has been fixed or changed.

    It seems the days of getting a complimentary font with upgrade is over?

    If we have already updated our registration will we lose the oppurtunity to the new benefit content?

    Kyleplattner due to the automatic nature of registration for Creative Suite 6 their will not be a Product Registration Incentive Offer.  Right now we are looking at having the site updated to reflect this.  Again sorry for the confusion in the past we offered the free gifts to help encourage users to register their products.

    I was told by the Adobe Fonts department that there are no registration incentives with CS6. It's sad because it was a benefit of upgrading that many of us had learned to look forward to with each new addition.

    Agreed, I hope they reconsider. Surely they can offer a little something for being faithful customers paying large amounts for each new update.

    Well, it seems like nothing has changed in the last 2 days.

     

    After installing/registering the CS6 Design & Web Premium (boxed) package I got redirected to this page supposedly to claim a benefit.  Just try clicking on the Adobe Text link on the page like I've done.  You end up on this page with no download link, no information about the exclusive benefit what so ever.  So I started searching the net for a clue and got here eventually to read the pathetic story.

     

    Is this an American software giant where professionals work or some third world gimmick lender willing to say anything just to make a buck?  This is very, very disappointing. 

     

    Is there a way to return the product and have a full refund?

    Oh, come on, 810g!

     

    It's disappointing that there is no registration incentive with CS6 as there was with prior versions of the products, and it's a shame someone forgot to clean up the link to the CS5 registration incentives.

     

    BUT let's put things in perspective.. . .

    You got what you bought, even if you hoped for a bonus that was never adverstised or otherwise promised to you before you bought.

     

    I was a beta tester on Acrobat X and on Photoshop CS6. Both are excellent programs and I have personal experience with how responsive Adobe was to trying to implement tester suggestions to make the programs better and easier to use--much more so than I have encountered in beta testing of products from other software developers.

     

    After you use the programs a bit, I suspect you'll find you got what you paid for and more.

    My apologies Kyle.  I had not received a response back that the server has been updated.  I did just check though and it appears that the notification regarding the Product Registration Incentive Offer has been removed for Creative Suite 6.  This is due to the fact that the product is registered when you sign in with your Adobe ID during the installation process. 

    As previously discussed because of this process it was decided to not offer a product registration incentive offer with Creative Suite 6.

    Just posting this to let you all know this problem still exists. I installed CS6 Design and Web Premium this month (August) and today I got a taskbar message saying I was eliglble for the registration benefit. When I clicked on the message, it brought me to the Adobe login page. After logging in, the "eligible benefit" link was on my account page. I clicked on the Adobe Text font link but there was no way to actually select it as a benefit.

    Same issue here.  I contacted Adobe support via the online chat and explained the issue earlier today.  They said they would escalate it.

     

     

    ETA: This was with CS 5.5 Master Collection

    Nope.  After I use the programs I find that CS6 has more annoying problems than any other Adobe software package I used before.  I feel like my money is wasted.

    This is funny now.  Over a year later and I just got the same message with Coldfusion 10 and Coldfusion builder 2.  Nice to see Adobe stays on top of things huh?

    Danny11223344 I would recommend you complete the registration process for ColdFusion.  The registration process is not integrated within the software unlike the Creative Suite 6 software.
