are you 100% sure the student and the full version are identical?
I'll give myself an out and say 99.9%. There is one version and two prices. And, I don't work for Adobe.
As long as I've been using Photoshop Elements, Premiere Elements, Lightroom, Photoshop and Bridge there has been a student discount. That is about 5 or 6 years of trolling related forums. I've never once read where anyone got less than the full deal. On the other hand, I've read that Adobe tries hard to make sure you are not faking it as a student. Some have posted that they were not able to pass the "student" test.
For the Elements products, there are usually holiday or fall sales that make it as cheap, or cheaper, than the student/teacher price.
Do you know something I don't know?
Black Friday 2016 is on Friday, November 25.
I can wait 21 days. No rush. :-)
Thank you Bill.
Last year's Black Friday deal was elusive! I forget what day the price dropped. I missed it and didn't feel I needed 14. I stayed with 13. When I bought 13 two years ago it was like a yo-yo between Amazon and B&H for a couple days. They both have a lot of products and I don't know how they can keep track of each other for just one software program. Maybe it only looked like they did.
