    between applying. I bought one at first, applied it to make sure it worked then bought another 3 all at once. Then applied them every 10 minutes or so waiting for adobe to keep extending the expiry date.

    Somebody on one of my photography forums posted it up.

    best Adobe deal I have seen ever!

    Yeah, its a cracker. In theory I will have 2 years worth of subscription for the amount I was paying for ~6 months before. I don't use it all that much but its super useful to have when I do need it!

    Yeah when you get it at good prices its worth it just to always have it handy to edit stuff and they keep improving it.

    The new masking tools are sublime that they introduced last month.

    I posted it ages ago but the price went up to £18 for a few months and then dropped back down to £8ish so was good to let everyone know.

    Wait until after 10th of January and up to mid February that is when they go EOL and are usually half the launch price of the previous year. Because they are EOL though stock tends to dry up as they try and sell it ASAP to make space for the new models. So you have to be on the ball checking daily and buy quickly.

    Quite amazing what they can do isn't it.

    BTW, if anyone else is doing this. You can buy lets say 4 in one go and then just apply them one by one, checking that the last one was applied before moving onto the next. Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes total. I currently have until 25th November 2023 on my account.

    Much appreciated.

    For me Black friday is the best time of year to unsubscribe to email marketing, must have got rid of about 15 companies so far.

    you have to manually compare with other sites by using google say ? (eg curry's , jl, ao ...)
    so, hotuk still comes out as a good compare option for commodity products - hue/ninja ...

    It’s been around for weeks now so no rush to buy it, it’s not a Black Friday deal.

    Glasgow gin. 20% off so down to £26.40 with free postage.

    I like the look because of the traffic cone - It reminds me of VLC player.

    They're still arguing with me after I bought a years worth - One of the codes redeemed as Acrobat DC Pro which I have no use for instead of Photoshop. If they won't sort it, I'll just file a claim with Paypal.

    Have any of you TV boffins seen any exceptional deals on TV's? Best I could see was Argos £75 cashback through Quidco, with a further 10% off on the website.

    Quite! There’s some companies which I have used once a couple of years ago. Don’t hear from them for months then all this month - unsubscribe most

    eBay are doing x50 nectar points between 12:00 and 13:00z today. Plus there's 6% cashback from TCB.

    Some black friday deals on Bourbon on Amazon - Woodford Reserve £19.99 and Bulleit £18 seems pretty good

    A couple of notes on the Gamivo deal for Adobe Photography Plan. First, if you already have an active subscription direct with Adobe there's no way to enter the serial number i.e. it's not stackable. I assume you could cancel the subscription and enter it. Second, when buying I accidentally ended up signing up for a Gamivo SMART subscription. Irritating, as I was specifically trying to avoid doing this, but they bundle it in with the 'taxes' charge. Not sure if I missed a check box somewhere, now cancelled manually.

    Yes there is.

    You go to 'manage your account' and click this button.

    I stacked a year from Amazon and another year from Gamivo (although as stated above, one of the keys they sent was for the wrong product and I'm waiting for them to fix it). They applied and stacked perfectly.

    Yes, that's a good point. I did manage to avoid adding that so it's worth being aware.
