Switch to Student Discount

Hello, I have a $10 Spotify Premium subscription right now, but I'd like to switch to a Student subscription.  I went to https://www.spotify.com/us/student/.  When I clicked "Get Premium", it took me to https://www.spotify.com/us/account/subscription/.  How do I sign up for the discount!

 

Thanks for the help!

Hey @GeordiD 

 

To switch to the student discount subscription, you will first need to cancel your current subscription here:

 

https://www.spotify.com/us/account/subscription/

 

after canceling, you will still get to keep the remaining amount of premium you have previously paid for

 

Then you will need to go here for the system to verify your student status and it will sign you up for the student discount subscription:

 

https://www.spotify.com/us/student/

 

Then, if you are still having trouble, you will need to contact support

Hey @cvstom__

 

Are you in the US? Try using this site to validate.

 

If it succeeds, when you log back in your Spotify account, and look under the subscription tab the price will change to $4.99 for your upcoming renewal date.

Hey @rr0,

 

Student Premium is open to students at U.S. Title IV accredited institutions, which, I believe, refers to College (undergraduate and graduate). Still, you should ask a school official and see what they say.

Hey @craigfraser,

 

You won't lose any playlists, friends, or your music library, as long as you keep using the same username you've been using. Those are independent from your subscription status.  
 
Also, student and family premium are different. You can't combine them.
 
Hope it helps. :)

Hello @timlmartin,

 

As a gift, you could buy a giftcard for her to use in her account, but it will be at the regular price.

 

To get the student discount, the user (your daughter) needs to use this site to validate.

 

If it succeeds, when she logs back in her Spotify account, and look under the subscription tab the price will change to $4.99 for her upcoming renewal date.

 

Hope it helps. :)

Sorry for digging up an old thread, but I am not able to sign up for the student plan. I have already cancelled my premium subscription, and it is still valid till the 1st of April (after which I will be switched to the free version). When I click on the "Get Premium" button on the Student sign up page and log in, I am directed to the Account Overview page (https://www.spotify.com/us/account/overview/) instead of a form asking for my student details.

 

Will I have to wait for the subscription to expire before signing up for the student discount? If yes, that would not be ideal for me, as I would have to re-download my entire library again for offline access :-(

If I cancel my account in order to switch to a student discounted account, will I lose all of my playlists?

I have tried changing my premium account to the student discount and it says it has worked, but I have been getting billed for both a premium account AND a student account. What in the hell do I do?
