Adobe Black Friday and Cyber Monday: other deals we expect to see
So what else might we see from Adobe this year? For the last four years, the company has offered a 20% discount on Creative Cloud over Black Friday and Cyber Monday – and it seems likely that we’ll see a similar deal this year.
In the past, the price of Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements has been cut by up to 40% over Black Friday, too. In fact, this is an Adobe deal we saw again in August this year, with a number of retailers (including Amazon, B&H, Best Buy and Staples) selling the stripped back photo-editing software for just $60.
Are we likely to see Adobe discounting its software by more than 20%? Going by previous years, there’s no evidence to suggest we will. But it's worth pointing out that in August this year our sister sites Creative Bloq and TechRadar ran an exclusive 40% discount on an annual Creative Cloud membership. Instead of paying the usual £49.94/€60.49 per month, you could pay just £30.34/€36.29 for the first year. This was a limited offer, available for just 11 days – but it does show that very occasionally Adobe is prepared to slash the cost of its software.
