Default CS6 master purchase?

I know CS6 has been discontinued for a while now. I see a few resellers out there with download links / purchases still available.

I should have been on top of this last year but, question for those of you who may have downloaded your copy...

I'd assume the vendor sends you a link and serial but, you had to download directly from Adobe, right? Anyone know if Adobe is still honoring current purchases through these resellers and allowing download of the package?

I'm trying to figure out if I should just live with an older version, or pull the trigger now to stay 'cloudless'. Thanks for any insight....

With some research, it seems Adobe is still selling CS6 as a download so, apparently, the download link is still valid.

How would any of you feel about buying something like this on FleaBay? It seems like the purchase may be more protected as one would have Ebay Protection, PayPal Protection, and CCard Protection....?

Most of the other resellers are outside US borders. I'd assume, if I run into issues, 'they' would be harder to track down/rectify the issue then with the protections above....

Feeling kinda bewildered - I don't want to get 'duked'.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Why would you choose to purchase from anyone other than directly from Adobe? Big price difference??

In some cases Ebay sellers are offering new/old, not current release copies of software. Check the sellers ratings, and make sure they are offering new unregistered software. If in doubt email the seller with any questions.
Many times a substantial savings can be had.

Yea, the whole ebay thing seemed a little sketchy. I've never bought things like this out there. But, he was very communicative, had good ratings, and assured is was legit full retail....but, i didn't pull the trigger....it went for 1175....maybe i should have.

If you have a link for CS6 Mater Collection on amazon for 949 I'll buy it now! I don't see it out there.

There are also a few online resellers (mostly outside the country) who are selling....not sure how to feel about that...but at this point, I can't bee too picky.

Just concerned about the seller I guess. Anyone do business with any of these guys? Index of sellers:
Cs6 master collection | Graphics Software | ComputerLane

I do need Flash and Premiere as well as PS so...I'm stuck with needing Master Collection.

ETA: Stiga, didn't mean to sound ungrateful for the Amazon thing...I, literally, would have jumped all over that.
