And I am fine with that. If in a year's time I don't like the price increase (if any), then I'll cancel and be no worse off than I am now.

Unless you save your work in the latest PSD format, and your current version of Photoshop doesn't support the new features. (This may not be an issue to you, but it's something to be aware of. Normally once someone upgrades to a newer version, it can be difficult in some instances to go back).

I was ready to do this but I am not keen to allow Adobe to store my credit card details after they have demonstrated their poor level of security.

I think I would do it if I could pay for a year without them storing my card then I get the option to make a one-off payment to renew each year.

They are missing a trick not doing this, I am sure quite a few people would opt for this and a huge pile of cash would land on their lap.

^^ maybe, but then you have the other side of the coin. By doing it monthly instead of yearly and being automatic people are less prone to cancel their subscription (or let it lapse), even if the price goes up. There will also be a certain percentage that will be 'out of sight, out of mind' where the subscription will continue to be renewed.

The less they can get their customers considering whether they're renew or cancel, the better off for Adobe it will be.

So, while they might win some extra over such as yourself, the question is would they lose more in lapses of renewals and cancellations than they would gain?

In addition to this, I think one of the main benefits of the subscription system (for Adobe) is all about the bottom line. They can budget and forecast much easier this way without being worried how many people will be interested in the new features they release with their new version.

You do know that any time you use your credit card that all the information is required to be kept on file by the business for at least 18 months, right?

See that's just it. Even if you never, ever, ever shop online or conduct any business over the Internet, your personal and financial information is still stored in a database somewhere that can be hacked into.

You don't even need to hack anything. Based purely on publicly accessible records you are able to find enough information on most people to take out a credit card in their name. Credit card fraud existed before the internet shopping was common.

Are you referring to this line?

"Cancellation
We'd hate to see you go, but if you cancel within the first 30 days starting from your contract date, we'll give you a full refund. Otherwise, you'll be billed 50% of your remaining contract obligation for the cancellation or removal of seats."

It is a 12 month contract, paying $10 a month. If you don't cancel in the first month then you are on the hook for the whole year's contract. After than first month you are either paying the entire 10 a month till your year long contract is up, or you cancel and pay a lump sum equal to half of the rest of the year.

At the end of the 12 months you renew for another contract term, and the process starts over. If you are planning to stop your subscription then you would cancel before the new contract term begins.

Some businesses are sneaky and when you originally sign up you agree to automatic billing. That happened to me once and when I saw the charge I wrote them and they refunded me in full. I suspect if you catch a charge after your initial contract, you can get a refund for that month and cancel.

The 50% clause means if you cancel after 30 days of your initial agreement.

This is arguably the biggest reason to use a credit card with good customer service. If you don't immediately get results talking to the company charging you (here; Adobe), Just dispute it with your CC company (~5 minutes total) and you should be clear; they'll fight for you and remove the charge without you having to stress about it at all.

I pay more than that when I go out to lunch half the time. I guess I'll skip a lunch every week :-)
