    Discounts

    I guess most of us know about the 80% adobe discounts for staff and students in education as well as some form of discount from apple as well. For personal use. Aswell as membership to costco i believe if you are employed by the local council etc.

    I just thought it might be a nice idea to find out what benefits we are eligible for and maybe get them posted on this thread of other discounts that we could be applicable for that no one really knows about for personal use.

    Im sure theres more than just that for us??

    As Richard O'Brian Famously said in the crystal maze.... LET THE FANS BEGIN!

    LOL here you go Adobe academic discount

    Just read the eligibility to see if you fall into the category and away you go.

    But do you see what I mean you didn't know about that as maybe others didn't either so get posting people! lol

    Wow didnt no that, will have to look into that one.

    You also have the cycle to work scheme soo much money for a bike and you pay it back, and also local gym membership if you work for the local council.

    Adobe offer Work at Home rights in some of their licenses, so you might not even need the discount - worth checking

    Feel their 80% is a bit off :P Unless that's 80% of "RRRRRRRRRRRRRP" style. 300 for a single copy?

    But yeah, would be cool to get lots of places on here

    No if you are part of a government funded school NOT PRIVATE you can be eligible the ac.uk is more for the university discount which is higher. Phone up and ask to double check I believe they usually ask for a scan of your photo id etc if its not a university discount.

    Depending on the cashier, 10% off at Rymans. Hey, I told him I'm not a student but work in a school but he still gave it to me after a long pause.

    I got a 12% discount last time I bought a Mac. I went in, waved my ID at them and got the discount. Applecare is also heavily discounted.
