Hi all.

I'm trying to buy Adobe Lightroom 4 through adobe.com as it says there is $20 off at the moment until Jan 6th using the coupon code. I'm signed in, and I have entered the coupon code for the discount (in $US) and it has applied the discount but when I go to checkout I always get an error. 

Can I not do this here in NZ?

If not that's a real b*gger...

I recently had the same issue... I got around it by adding a US delivery address to my Amazon account (actually was a youpost address I setup) and it then let me buy a digital copy through Amazon... It wouldn't let me when I had an NZ address setup.

I asked Adobe by email and twitter in NZ to explain why it was costing me under half the price to buy it from the US compared to NZ but they didn't answer.

Cheers - N

Thanks!


Hmm, I've heard of services like youpost. It lets you have an address in the U.S so that you can buy stuff in the U.S and have it delivered to a U.S address right?
I can't seem to find it if I do a search for "youpost". Am I looking for the right thing?

Ahhh, slip of the memory. I mean YOUSHOP - and yes, your assumption is correct.

In my case since there was no physical delivery, there was no cost at all.
