How can I get discounted Adobe Acrobat Pro and Creative Cloud licenses?

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

You don’t have to spend what you used to on Adobe licenses. Now you can get the same products at steeply discounted prices!

Thanks to the enterprise agreement from February, one-year licenses are just $35 for Acrobat Pro, and $150 for the Creative Cloud, which includes tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and more. Outside of this agreement, Stanford employees are paying an average of $180 to $300 for these annual licenses on their own.

In the nine months since University IT (UIT) signed a new enterprise agreement with Adobe, faculty and staff Creative Cloud and Acrobat Pro license purchases from the university web store have collectively saved Stanford an estimated $600,000.

Start saving

Take advantage of the discounted rates for these popular applications by purchasing them through the Software Licensing Webstore. If you have an Adobe license nearing expiration, do not auto-renew. Instead, cancel your subscription and purchase a new one through the Software Licensing Webstore. If you recently renewed your Adobe license, Adobe has a 14-day cancellation policy; otherwise, you’ll need to wait to renew with UIT when your license expires.

UIT wants to get the word out about these discounted rates as broadly as possible to university staff and faculty, so you and your teams – and the university overall – can realize even greater savings. Share this opportunity with your teams and through your own internal channels.
