(One Year Subscription – Annual Price) (Mac / Win) for $209.95 at Academic Superstore

I do not receive a commission for this recommendation. I’m just cheap and like to share bargains. I also like to praise the mega corps that we all love to hate when they do something good, even when it serves their interests in the long run. After all, what software are you going to use after you graduate? Exactly.
