Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

NUS is great isn't it! :D

Just go to https://www.spotify.com/uk/nus/ and then press the massive "Sign up" button, it will take you to a page where you can select "Already have a Spotify account? Click here to log in", then just sign in using your premium account details, enter your NUS card number and Date of Birth and your discounted subscription will be applied from your next payment date.

Re: changing premium account to students account

Hello!!

I am about to activate the student discount on my already existing premium account. However, when I follow the steps for the activation I am directed to unsubscribe. This is what it appears :
"To be able to apply for the student discount you need to cancel you current subscription first, please visit yoursubscription page do this." 

Is that the regular procedure or I do sth wrong? And if its correct, I am not gonna lose the remainder of the month that is already paid?

Thanks,

Pavlos

I've just checked your account and the NUS discount seems to be on there okay. Your next payment (~28th May) should be at the £4.99 rate and then you'll have an extra fiver a month to spend on noodles and beer. ;-)

If you change accounts and therefore usernames then yes you will loose playlists unless you manually copy them over or get the Spotify team involved to do it for you. 

 

However that shouldn't be neccessary, if you now have a rolling monthly premium subscription set up, you should now be able to apply your NUS discount to the next 12 payments.
