How to get a year of Adobe CC for half price.

This is not a hack. (well maybe its a lifehack) 
This is not me being a smarty pants. (if Adobe fixes this bug, I'll be fine with it) 
This is me just working with a broken system.. and then realising that I shouldn't complain.. coz.. I'm sort of winning at the end of the day!

So in December 2016 I decided to stop using my Credit card. I had struggled with Credit Card debt and decided it was time to get smart.
So after a year of paying for my Adobe CC licence with my credit card, I switched the payment method to Debit Card.

The first payment went through.. and then the following month it failed! 
So suddenly I found myself switched over to a one month trial of Adobe CC . Until that expired. Then I payed for the next month with the same debit card.. and sure enough at the next month's payment date.. the payment failed again.. and I was back on the One month trial ..

Again once the trial was over I had to manually pay for the next month with my debit card.

Frustrating right? I tried my best to get Adobe to see that there was some kind of glitch.. But they didn't . or rather their customer care system is not equipped to solve a problem like this.

So I told myself that the issue must be with my bank- HDFC Bank. They proved even less helpful... or er helpless is a better word. And so I switched banks. I was now a proud account holder at Yes Bank.

Did this solve my issue.. nope. the same loop has started again.

This time Adobe actually got on the phone with me! And they still refused to accept that it was something they could fix on their side.. They wanted me to go tell my bank that they should allow Adobe to charge them..

So I was going to call my bank.. when..
EUREKA!
I just realized.. that instead of paying for Adobe CC every month.. 
I'm now only paying every alternate month. 

Why the heck am I complaining about that?
