Is there any advantage to purchasing one of the CS5 bundles directly from Adobe's website versus purchasing it through another online such as Amazon? It's seems like there is some better pricing at other places, but just wondering if maybe you get better service or other perks for purchasing directly from Adobe.
A couple features you get from a direct purchase through Adobe are: (1) instant download of your product, with no shipping costs or time (this cannot be purchased anywhere else), and (2) a direct relationship with Adobe going forward - a third-party reseller is not going to correspond with you in the same way.
If you are considering purchasing through a reseller or retailer, make sure it is an authorized one - there is a lot of fake and damaging software out there...
See "Find a Reseller" near the bottom
Thank you for the info. I had already made the purchase through Amazon, which according to the link provided is an authorized reseller. Should arrive today. Can't wait to get started!
