A Reddit user has found a way to get Adobe's Creative Suite 6 (CS6) at US prices. But has the company closed the loophole, already?

In a photo walkthrough posted to Reddit this week, a user found that by inserting Australian reference tags into the US store's URL, the transaction is processed at lower prices than what you can get on the Australian Adobe store.

We love a bargain, and hate the Australia tax, so we thought we'd give it a go.

Has Adobe already become wise to our act?
