The terms state that this is valid for one year. Does that mean that it goes back up to 19.99 after the initial year?

Adobe did a similar deal here in the UK a couple of months ago, which I signed up for, I already had the stand alone Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 5.

I did it just for the CS6 upgrade to Photoshop CC and then Adobe threw in Lightroom for the same price (£8.78 per month).

After a year, the price DOES go back up. I'd advise anyone so skip this offer and let Adobe know that you don't appreciate the horrible attack on consumers that their new subscription-based plan represents.

Where did you see that the price goes back up? If it shoots up 3,4 or 5 fold, sounds like a great way to lose most of the customers who signed up for the $10 dea.

If you actually click the OP's link and go to the FAQ section it states:

QuoteQuote:
Will the cost of my membership ever increase?
When you purchase directly from Adobe, the cost of an annual membership will not go up during the first 12 months of your membership. It is possible that the cost of the month-to-month membership will increase, but if it does, you will be notified and given the opportunity to cancel.
Adobe also offers prepaid cards through retailers and resellers that allow you to buy membership with an upfront payment
This is not uncommon in the USA in contracts.. rented housing goes up yearly.. cable television and internet services go up yearly.. telephone service fees go up yearly... they bait you with a really cheap deal and expect you to get so hooked on the crack that you never want to get off.

Any rented access service for your work tools is ridiculous to me. Outside of corporate customers who don't want to bother with upgrades and write it off anyways.

And the more people who sign up for this thing convince Adobe and all other companies to either keep on or grow such services.

I guess we'll find out in a year. But, for now, I think that it is worth getting over $800 worth of software for about $10 per month. If it goes up 20% to $12, it's still a bargain. I'd be surprised if there would be a massive jump. Too many people would scream foul!

Why do you think people crying foul will have an effect? Someone who bought it a month ago has to pay twice as much as someone who buys it today forever? I'd guess those people would cry foul if the price didn't go back up.

Did anybody try it? I just made the purchase, and in the list of Apps I don't see Lightroom as a stand alone app. I wonder if it is because I already have LR installed locally on my machine. Or, maybe it is bundled in Photoshop CC?

---- Update. I logged off and back in again and then LR showed up in the list.

The terms and conditions say:

Renewal
After the first 12 months, we will automatically renew your contract based on the current price of the offering.

I am not sure what happens after 24 months.

@Mistlefoot - because someone who bought a month ago can switch the plan to the current pricing if they contact adobe before the special is over. I think they'd be pretty thrilled.

According to that the price will likely go up at 12 months - why worry about 24 months?

"We will automatically renew your contract based on the current price of the offering. To me, that means at the 12 month mark, you will then be paying what the current price is at that time. $20? $25? $30?

They did the same deal when they introduced the monthly pricing, and it was made clear then that the price would revert to normal as soon as the trial period was up.
