Photoshop, Lightroom, After Effects, Premiere Pro and many other apps are in the Adobe Creative Cloud. But not everyone agrees with the monthly price of 61,95 euros. The monthly individual prices of 11,89 euros or 23,79 euros for some of the programs and program combinations can also be too much. That's why Jens recently sent me a video showing how you can book the Creative Cloud offer for a fraction of the price via VPN via the Turkish Adobe website. Out of curiosity, I tried it without a VPN – and it worked! Here I show you how to do it.
UPDATE February 08.02.2024, XNUMX: After a few months, Adobe will determine from which country you are really using the Creative Cloud. The subscription and its price will then be adjusted accordingly. Details about this in this recent post: Adobe Creative Cloud – Turkey trick exposed after a while!

It's still possible! My readers' experiences seem to vary widely. After I heard several times at the beginning of November that the trick no longer worked, another comment came from a reader who said he had managed it with the Revolut credit card and a VPN with the setting of a Turkish city. I would read from this that it is currently still working and you should definitely test it out.
Update November 02.11.2023nd, XNUMX: No longer works!
I just received a tip from a reader that Adobe has put a stop to this trick. The credit card must now be registered in the same country as the country you specify as your country of residence via VPN.
Support told him that they've found that people are buying cheaper plans here even though they live elsewhere. This is now very heavily regulated. Anyone who still has access to a Turkish credit card can still do so.
Update October 09.10.2023th, XNUMX: Still going this way
Based on reader comments, I picked out the following important points that are important for a successful savings campaign at Adobe:
- you have to create a new Adobe account (Adobe ID).
- you need a VPN that you can set to “Turkey” (e.g. I take Atlas VPN – currently with 85% discount)
- the credit card should be one Revolut credit card because others don't seem to provide the corresponding discount at Adobe
What you have to consider: New account and credit card
Before you start with the instructions and book the more than 85% cheaper offer from Adobe, there are two important tips. The first is that you create a new Adobe account must. As you'll see in the step-by-step instructions below, you'll need an email address that you haven't previously used for Adobe services. Previous projects, cloud content and the like cannot be automatically adopted.
You also need one Credit card (according to reader comments Revolut card recommendable) to pay the subscription price for Adobe Creative Cloud or individually booked app subscriptions. If you don't have one, you'll have to get one first. But then you can get started. I found the booking process very easy because Safari on the Mac has a translation function integrated, thanks to which you can navigate the Turkish website in German, English or another preferred language.
Adobe Creative Cloud offer from Turkey only €7,32 / month
I haven't used Adobe programs since I switched to Affinity Photo for creating blog graphics a few years ago. But this post was worth it for me to try out the booking via the Turkish Adobe website. Basically I just need Cancel Amazon Prime and I've more than compensated for the costs :D If you're also interested in the entire Adobe Creative Cloud for only 7,32 euros (current conversion of 187,62 Turkish lira) instead of 61,95 euros per month, then these are the ones necessary steps:
- Some readers recommend using a VPN with the “Turkey” setting (I use Atlas VPN, as it is quite cheap and works well with Mac and iPad/iPhone)
- Goes to the Turkish Adobe website: https://www.adobe.com/tr/
- Skip the website Browser (Safari, Chrome or similar) translate
- Click on the "Buy Now" button and select the desired offer
- Then select a suitable payment plan
- During the checkout process, enter an email address that you haven't already used with Adobe
- Then use your credit card details (tip: Revolut credit cards function) to enable payments
- Set a password on the following page or via the link in the email you receive
- Confirm your e-mail address again using the link you received (second e-mail)
- Download Creative Cloud and the desired Adobe programs
- Now uses the industry standard of the digital creative world at a low price
Do I have to use the Adobe apps in Turkish?
No. Both the Creative Cloud app and the individual apps such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro and Co. adapt to the system language of your computer. So if you have it installed on macOS or Windows with a German language pack, you can use it in German. This also works well with English settings or another supported language. If you don't speak the language, you only have to fight your way through the Turkish Adobe website and everything will run smoothly.
Is this software purchase tax deductible?
If you book the cheap Adobe Creative Cloud offer as a self-employed person or company in this way, then a tax will also be awarded there. You can see this directly in the booking process. But I don't know how the billing and deductions in the tax return look like. I got the program collection for hobby projects, not for work. If you insist on a tax offset, you should perhaps consult your tax advisor first.
If it doesn't work: Selection of different VPN services
I don't know if the video explaining how to book the Adobe subscriptions through the Turkish offer was just to push their own affiliate program with the proposed VPN service or not. At least everything worked when I tried to book the cheaper subscription without VPN. If this is not the case for you and you therefore want to try the method of redirecting your connection via a server in Turkey, then you are welcome to use one to book a VPN to our Affiliate links :D
