If you can buy PSE 12 on a disc then that is a better option. PSE 15 has a lot of bells and whistles but those a gimmicks and dont help serious photographers.  I use PSE 12 and Lightroom 6 in combination and can recommend that. Incidentally both of those software packages were available on disc. 
I found that by buying the hardcopy rather than a download I can reload the software when I have a computer crash or have to replace my PC as I did recently (major hard-drive failure)
Not a huge fan of Adobe's ongoing rental plan anyway

 A great deals depends on what type of photography interests you. I am keen on landscapes and have found the "Photomerge" function on PSE12 to be as good if not better than the trial version of PSE15 that I downloaded. Lightroom 6 also has a good version of this function but I find that I sometimes need to go back to PSE12 as LR6 will sometimes declare that it cannot merge the slected shots.
There are many other software packages that one can obtain free but I am reluctant to name any of these as there are real risks in downloading a virus.

Good luck in obtaining a refund from Adobe
