    What can I expect to pay for a legitimate copy of Flash CS4 (Mac)? Is there a place that sells it at a good discount?

    I'm not a student. I want to get a legit copy. And I want to pay as little as possible. I see, e.g., that Amazon has it for $670, which isn't much off retail. Is that as good as it gets?

    Unfortunately, in most cases the best price is the educational price and even then that could differ between schools.

    Just some ideas
    - I've heard that when ordering online through the Apple Educational store, they often times don't double check to make sure you're actually a student.

    -You could always sign up for a class at a JC, get a student ID and grab a copy of Flash. Then just drop the course before the deadline passes for refunds. A bit of a hassle, sure, but the savings could be worth it.

    -Ask a friend? Maybe someone you haven't talked to in awhile is back at school, or perhaps maybe his/her kid is going to school.

    Thanks for the ideas...

    I considered manipulating the student program, but if I didn't actually intend to take a course, I might as well pirate the software.

    I guess I want to make sure I'm not paying a significantly higher price than others, but it doesn't seem like there are big discounts commonly available.
