Recently signed up for a CC Photography subscription, and was pleased to see that I would be able to get 10 free Stock images. But when you actually go to get your free images you are then told you get 10 free images with a @29.00 month subscription to Adobe Stock. While in the small print it says you can cancel anytime during the first month you need to actually open the account with your credit card. Not impressed - if you get 10 free images why not simply let users select 10 free images without any sign-up? After all you are telling is they are free
Thanks for your feedback. As you have seen, sign up is required for the 30 day trial where you get 10 images. There is no charge for the first month and if you do not wish to continue with the subscription you can cancel during the first month.
As you can see I have been pondering on this for a while, and totally disagree with your response. Why advertise something is free but require you provide a credit card? Simple, you are looking to drive additional revenue out of users either not cancelling in time or forgetting to cancel because they never used any of their free images. So now you hit them with cancellation fees - $$$$$$$$'s for Adobe. No if you are offering something for free it should be for free with no strings. If the service is that good your customers will then sign up and provide a credit card.
Proof, look at the many complaints in this forum and the CC forum from your customers regarding cancellation fees. So I stand by my original complaint "This is Dubious Marketing".
