The short answer is no!
You can buy older versions of PS as second hand, but you run the risk of it being dodgy.
I know it isn't in the scope of your original question, but if you are looking at a package for photo editing, then I would suggest downloading and experimenting with the free trial of Lightroom 4. This does almost all most photographer want and is considerably more cost effective.
If you are looking more at a graphic design package, perhaps Photoshop Elements?

Downsides include a bit of a learning curve to get used to a different interface than Adobe's, and less regular updates. Upsides include updates to the latest versions, forever, for no money.

Adobe Lightroom may have enough editing tools for your needs and it cost about 150$

Another option would be to look at Adobe prescription option. Ypu can get PS by it self for $20/month
