Question for England Based Adobe Creative Cloud Users :
I was wondering if anyone here (who is based in the UK) has joined up with the Adobe Creative Cloud.
The reason I ask is because compared to the amount of money I spend on software each year, it might actually be a good idea for me to have the yearly subscription on that and have a powerful suite of software. My problem is that is looks like the British are getting screwed-over as usual:
- In US Dollars they want $49.44 per month (equal to £31.50)
- In UK Pounds they want £46.88 per month
When you take the conversion rate into account, that mean the British are getting charged £15.30 ($24.00) more than those in the USA, and that is unacceptable. No doubt Adobe's excuse would be "VAT", but as we're not supposed to be charged VAT in these circumstances, I have no intentions of buying this product unless I can pay in US dollars and be charged the US rate.
So I was wondering, has anyone here, based in England and using a Brtitish bank account, successfully ordered the ACC by paying in US dollars, just like we do at DAZ? If it's possible for the British to pay what the rest pay, then I'm pretty sure I'd go for it. But if not, they can stick it up their over-priced ...
Any info on this would be appreciated.
