Spotidy charging 2x student, not getting premium.

This morning I tried to use the Spotify Student discount, but I didn't know it was for only college students, not high school students. I exited the page, and I didn't think it charged me, although I did put in my debit card information. About 20 minutes ago I tried again, on my computer this time. It didn't work. I decided that I would just buy the 9.99 subscription, because I had enough in my bank account. However, I looked at my bank account and I don't have enough because of two pending transactions from Spotify, both for $4.99 each. I got charged for the student discounts even though it is not giving me premium. I tried emailing spotify and they said to come to a the fourms. Please help as soon as possible.

Hey there!


Welcome to the Spotify Community, we're all here to help each other.


Don't worry. If the payments on your statement show as pending/pre-auth, it means no money's been taken. The funds should reappear soon. In the meantime, check out Spotify Family, you can rock out with the rest of your band and get 50% off! 

Oh, sometimes when you email our Accounts team, you might get an automatic response with some self-service options like Community to get some help while they get back to you 🙂
