I think CC is actually quite a good deal if you aren't a hobbiest or side-gig player. So many great tools and resources for design shops big and small.
That said, if you are more of a casual user just ask them for a discount. You shouldn't have much trouble getting up to 50% the annual price, provided you pay in full up front.
Even with renewals, they'll tell you it was only good for a year but you can always renegotiate for "just one more promotional year". They're able to see actual use (or at least times launched) so for the honest people I'm sure they don't mind helping on price.
