Luckily my premium is up in a few days so I did the following:

 

Cancelled my Family Plan (Never To Return).

 

Signed myself, My Wife,her mother, my mother, her brother, and her sister up for seperate premium plans.

 

Got a google home mini for each signup.

 

Cancelled all the plans.

Im fine with paying $60 for 6 google home minis.

After that, Im now done with Spotify forever!

I can't either get this either, I understand theres multiple people on the account, but why cant the card holder be able to get this promotion!

So essentially I have to delete my pregnant wife's entire music library (all playlists, etc...) for a month as a workaround? No thanks... I enjoy living...

 

How about just providing the promotion to your entire Premium community? It's not like we're asking for 5 Google Home Mini's if we have 5 accounts on the $15 family plan. We only want 1 per account like everyone else...

I just wanted to give some perspective on this, its just my opinion and you are totally free to do what you want.

 

Based on previous posts you've made you have been on the Family plan since ‎2016-10-15. Thats 29 months. You also mentioned you have 6 family members on the plan, so you are using the full benefit of the discounted family rate.

 

With the Family plan that Spotify offers you have saved $45 a month. $45 x 29 months = $1305. You pay $15 a month. $15 x 29 months = $435.

 

so...

You've paid Spotify: $435
Spotify offers have saved you: $1305

On top of that you've just gotten nearly $500 worth of Google Home Minis for $60.

 

I assume you've enjoyed Spotify's service since you are a long time member. Abandoning a company and taking advantage of them because they didnt give you a FREE Google Home Mini seems like an overeaction. They never had to give free devices to anyone, but they did. They never had to offer a discounted family plan, but they did.

Anyway those are just my thoughts, you and anyone else are free to do whatever you like (including ignoring me).

 

You could also argue that if Spotify had offered the Google Home to Family plan members in the first place you and they wouldn't be in this situation.

I had a family account even thought I was the only one in our family using it. I have downgraded it to premium and it says in 10 days my subscription type will be changed. I hope it will allow me then.

Absolutely ridiculous. Family plan customers pay almost double, and we are offered nothing? As a paying customer, i'm quite upset at this.

It doesn't make sense at all!

 

It's not like we're getting minis for each account. We just want one like everyone else... #lame

Please open this offer to family plan members.  I shouldn't have to change my plan to get this as it is only fair we all have the opportunity

 

Thanks so much!!

Well, the problem is that the message isn't consistent.  I can't argue that the family plan is a savings, but that's not the point and it shouldn't even be an answer.  In fact if that Spotify person actually said that, he/she should be corrected since it doesn't follow the previous promotions in other countries.  The family account is a savings for everyone no matter what country, so that idea or answer is as bad as jumping in a falling elevator. 

 

Not applying it to Canada is in my opinion wrong and inconsistent message. I have faith that Spotify will say sorry, we messed up with the marketting and we will have the same rules applied here, but we have limited amount available (10) so first ones get it. :p

It doesn't seem fair that the destinction would be country specific. Regardless, a response from @spotify would really clear this up.
