Love music? Who doesn’t! However, getting music on-the-go or on-demand can come at a fee. Using music streaming services like Spotify are the most useful and cost-effective way to listen to your favorite songs without enduring a hefty fee or limitations. As a college student, you probably want to save some money so Spotify is offering a discounted price to all U.S college students for their premium plan.
The regular price for Spotify Premium will cost you $9.99 a month. With the Premium plan you will get ad-free music streaming anywhere and everywhere on multiple devices, including iPhones, iPads, Android tablets and phones. You can also listen to your tracks offline. When compared to the free plan the Premium plan offers many more features and excludes the annoying advertisements on the app.
So those are the perks of the Spotify Premium plan, but if you’re a college student, you can receive a specialty discount through the Spotify US Student Program. College students within the United States will receive half-off Spotify Premium. That means if you are a college student interested in acquiring a subscription to Spotify you will only have to pay $4.99 a month.
So now college students can listen to their favorite artists and albums with paying full price for the premium music streaming service.
How to get the Student Discount on Spotify
You can apply by visiting the US Student Program page on Spotify. From there you will need to either sign into your existing account or register for a new one.
