I signed up with Adobe Stock a little over a month ago. I did the trial that they offer. Somewhere in their terms and conditions they hide that you will be committing to a YEARLY subscription when the trial is finished. So make sure to cancel before the trial ends if you decide to go for it. I ended up not needing to continue the service and so I went to cancel. As soon as I clicked cancel I see a big ol "You will be charged an early termination fee of $59.97". "What?! What is this all about? I never signed up for a yearly plan. I'm supposed to be on a monthly." After maneuvering my way through their chat system I finally get on with an actual person. For about 40 minutes this person was trying to negotiate and argue with me to stay. I get that it's part of their job, but to an extent. Long story shorter I turned down their offer"s" and the agent became very rude and also said I was still on the hook to pay the $60 cancellation fee. I told them that I never knowingly signed up for a yearly commitment. You guys never sent me any emails or anything letting me know the situation. I said I shouldn't have to pay that fee and that it would be bad business when obviously it wasn't clear in the trial promotion that you are locked into a yearly commitment if you go past the trial. I said I know that you can waive it so please do because I am basing my reviews off of this interaction. Sure enough the chat person waived the fee and then basically just ended the chat. No "Happy to help" or "Have a nice day". All they said was "It's waived. You will receive an email to confirm" and then they just ended the chat. I will never do business with Adobe Stock ever again. I thought that businesses would have figured it out by now that the customer is always right. If you give the customer the W (win) today then in the long run it's good for business and you may even get that customer back at some point. Interactions like the one I just had though, I will never be back.

Tip for consumers: Do the trial at your own risk. Make sure to cancel early if you don't plan to stay with them because you will be automatically locked in to a YEARLY commitment and will have to pay $60 to cancel.. It's $30/month with a yearly subscription and $50 for month to month. If you need photos on a regular basis it's not too bad of pricing. If not, I would just save yourself the headache and choose one of the other stock photo sites.

Disgusting business practices, and using the trust people have for the Adobe Brand to fleece cash...
