Adobe's Creative Cloud annual subscription typically costs £49.94 per month, or £596.33 if you pay for the annual subscription in one go. Adobe has a sale right now that slashes those prices by 20%, which means the annual plan's monthly rate drops to £39.95, or £476.96 if you pay a lump sum.

Head to Adobe to see its January Sale, which ends 28 January.

Amazon, while not advertising the price difference upfront, has slashed 30% off Adobe's rate (or 29.7% if you want to get technical). You can pick up the full Adobe CC suite for one year for just £419 – that's £57.96 off Adobe's discount price, or a whopping £177.33 off Adobe's standard price. Amazon's price works out to approximately £34.91 per month.

Even better, Amazon's price for the students and teacher edition is now just £162.99 for one year of service, which works out to £13.58 per month. Adobe's student pricing is currently £16.24 per month.

The only catch, if you can call it that, is there isn't an option to pay monthly on Amazon, so you'll have to pay the full price upfront. Still, a near £180 saving on Adobe CC is more than welcome.

We have seen bigger discounts from Adobe before though. Last July, the creative software giant slashed nearly 40% off Creative Cloud, dropping prices to £30.34 per month for the whole collection.

Head to Amazon to get 30% off the entire Adobe Creative Cloud suite for a year. If that sells out, head to Adobe to see its January Sale.
