Mac Software Deals: Photoshop Elements 11, $84; Photoshop Elements 10, $49
Adobe is now shipping Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11, which are the top-shelf prosumer image and video editing solutions for Mac. Piczilla’s direct pricing is the same this year as it was last year — $99 for the individual apps and $149 when purchase together. However, if you are looking for Mac software deals, there is no need to pay full retail.
MacConnection offers the best prices on the standalone versions of Photoshop Elements 11 ($84) and Premiere Elements 11 ($85). However, for whatever reason, the popular reseller doesn’t list Elements 11 bundle pricing and their Elements 10 pricing, at least of this writing, isn’t yet discounted.
A potential fly in the MacConnection ointment is free shipping starts at $99 — see also 2011 MacBook Air from $749, new in-box.
Last year for less
That said, at Amazon, Photoshop and Premiere Elements 10 are priced individually at $49.99 and bundled for $127.
Amazon’s Photoshop and Premiere Elements 11 prices, $90.89 and $89.99, aren’t prima facia competitive, though the online retails giant does offer a $10 discount ($139.99) on the bundle of these two apps.
Free shipping at Amazon starts at $25 and both Elements 11 products are listed as Prime (i.e. free second-day shipping).
For what it’s worth, the best Mac software deals on Amazon are often available only through third-party resellers that don’t offer free shipping at all, so check the final total price before you click confirm!
