This policy is SO DISAPPOINTING and feels dishonest on the part of Spotify. My daughter got a $30 gift card for her birthday, and we already have a Spotify Premium Family account, and have had one for years. Now we have a gift card that is COMPLETELY USELESS that someone else paid $30 for with the intention of having it used. How would they know we already have a premium family account? Why should they have to read the fine print of their gift and ask the recipient beforehand? Why can't we apply $30 to our account? Ugh. Your policy is different than any other place I have gotten a gift card from, and I see no benefits to the consumer. I hope Spotify considers changing this policy.
Note: Bear in mind that after redeeming the gift card for Premium and switching to Premium Family, the subscription will end earlier because of the difference of the price between Premium and Premium Family. So, after updating the payment details, the owner of the plan will be charged earlier.
We hope this helps, keep us posted!
